Casey Stoner memories: Livio Suppo

In the fourth part of MCN’s exclusive series of Stoner memories, Livio Suppo, who signed Stoner for Ducati at the end of 2006 and then worked with him at HRC, shares his thoughts. “I think his Phillip Island win in 2011 was unforgettable because it was a situation you can only dream of.  "Very few people in the world can experience something...

Oh dear...

Well if you think that was "Cryptic" then i wouldn't let those neurons go idle as I think you really could do with them sonny... Here's an idea though... Maybe you could use them towards actually getting a job rather than spending all day every day on here you lazy idle bastard....

Why do I need another job?

The one I have is fine thanks, £12 an hour and I have total access to do whatever I want pretty much whenever I want to do it? Not sure why I'd want to change that to be honest.

Subjective comment

Stoner's widespread unpopularity is not so much to do with his riding ability (which undoubtedly is exceptional) but more to do with his lack of personality which is akin to that of a sick puppy dog with a thorn in it's foot.

The thrill of it all

Livio must have enjoyed the past several years of MGP 2007 through 2012. A marketing man's dream. Insite into rider options and team. Allegiance to naught but the business in hand of team and GP success.

Twice he opted for Stoner and twice he was right.  No doubt he was influential with HRC after Stoner decided to go and scuppered any possibility of Rossi returning to HRC,along with Nakamoto. Correct call Livio. Afterall,one of the conditions of Rossi's initial Ducati signing was that Suppo be gone. Oh yes,this is not widely documented but generally accepted. Tardozzi's exit, although not involved directly with GP Corse was another condition after he(Tardozzi),

had the temerity to rate Stoner above Rossi by a country mile.Another Ducati casualty was Gabarini. Latest casualty is Preziosi, the engineer that saw off Kawasaki and Suzuki.

HRC are sucking the ex Ducati input up and enjoying it. I don't believe there exists any clause within the ambit of the existing rules that preclude Casey from testing HRC'S kit any day of the week in the far east and down South.

Afterall,2012 contracts have expired and 2013 kicks off in about a months time.

The pair of them have a great understanding. Always did. Much respect to Suppo.

 

And,yes,as hinted by Casey, Marc Marquez is a great replacement.

I read it as a man who was more than happy with his lot.

Very few can say that in my experience.
