Stoner came closer to saying he would have won the WC without the crash than many deemed prudent, in a piece written by Birt and published by MCN last week. Plenty here will have read it.
Basically, he pointed to Dani scoring more race wins than Jorge..and that at the time of the crash he had more wins than Dani. He backed the inference up by stating he'd been out as a result of Indy and riding unfit coming back, for "many, many races." It had hampered his efforts and cost him the title.
No blame apportioned to himself for the crash. No respect for the fact that Jorge managed the gap to his nearest championship rival by riding within himself and racking up the neccessary points, probably because it's never entered his tiny little skull there is an alternative to 'win or bin' to capture the crown. The implication was Lorenzo had the wrong approach.
In the link I gave below he blames the electronics and reckons he could have saved the Indy crash if his team had let him ride with less traction control.
He knew there was a slippery patch on the track. Hayden didn't blame the electronics.
IF indeed his team did dial in more traction control, they probably did it to save him breaking his neck knowing what an impetuous rider he was.
Bulto, you softlad..have you been walking round with an Orange sack or three over your head since Mugello?
Rossi crashed before Stoner. Over the last two years and up until Stoner wrote himself off, many fans and respected commentators pointed to pressure from Jorge as the cause, yet only three races had passed and Rossi was just 9pts off the lead. It's not my argument and I certainly didn't make it up to diss Rossi.
If Rossi cracked under pressure and given Stoners dodgy record, I think it's fair to say the Australian melted and dribbled down the drain in a puddle of steaming yellow piss.
My definition of getting beaten is when you are behind on points, what's yours? Go on..tell me it's just the wins that count!
Why do you always understate the facts when it comes to defending your boyfriend Casey?
"..there was roughly one race win in points covering 1st to 3rd with 8 races left.."
Stoner was 32pts behind Lorenzo, which meant he would have had to win ALL the remaining races to lift the title if Jorge came second..and that's hardly a cause for panic?..It's not pressure?
Fkin Stoner gypsies..the pair of you.
