Stoner DNFs in V8 debut

Casey Stoner's V8 debut came to an abrupt halt after a punctured tyre saw him retire from the first race while in 13th place. He got off to a good start, impressing by qualifying 12th around the Adelaide street circuit, then moving up to 10th by the first five laps. However, he then dropped back to 13th, losing time through the slower...

Tough luck..

..although I can't say I'm surprised.

Stoner has shown some pace & promise on his debut and is bound to improve as he gains experience..so for the moment, we should go easy on him.

I think ALL bike riders make better car drivers..it's a much easier transition than the other way round, so I'm not blown away by his efforts.

This is a second tier domestic series, a bit like SS600 in BSB let's say. If Schumacher has been running in 14th before he crashed on his debut in that class..you wouldn't be surprised now, would you?

as I have said wosi

I think it ill advised and demeaning for someone who has had stoner's success on the world stage in a real racing series to be racing V8 supercars, which is ersatz/pygmy nascar.

Him crashing in his first race in this stupid series still does not mean rossi won any races for ducati though. I would not anticipate success if stoner took up professional basketball either, which would similarly not mean he wasn't good at gp bike racing.

So why do you think he walked away at the supposed peak of his powers?

I don't believe Stoner would be winning anything on the current Ducati bike let alone a CF monocoque, and have doubts the Audi buyout that promises much would have taken place had he stayed. They wanted Rossi.

Rossi may have sacrificed wins wasting two years he could ill afford at this stage his career, because he beleived in and wanted the challenge of turning Ducati around..but at least they have some direction now going forward. 

It wouldn't have happened in a month of Sundays with Casey still as #1 and Prezel interpreting his limited development gobbledegook, wasting time on that CF bastard.

Why are we discussing this here?

This site is about bikes, bikers and the world of all things two (and sometimes three) wheeled. Casey Stoner left bike racing. We should do the same to him. Thanks, but we've moved on...

from honda wosi, who wanted to pay him 20 million a year to stay, rather than ducati.

I am happy to let all this this go and follow the new season, but if you want to bring up stoner they still haven't  gotten within half a second of his test times at sepang last year.

Oh

But did you see the face he pulled when he came to a stop.  Dummy Out or what.  I feel sorry for his pit crew.  At least in MotoGP they only had to put up with his winging when he came back to the pits.  Now he has car to radio.  well at least he will be able to take advise from his wife whilst driving!!!

Doohanfan it was mcn that brought him up...... I'm with veggie, who cares? I did notice though that he was great in practice and as soon as the race started he fell apart like a cheap shirt. Schewycertainly wouldn't get the best equipment in ss600. Stoners was the biggest primadonna on two wheels and moving to 4 hasn't changed that.

So like the rest of the morons who keep looking at the Stoner topics, commenting on them and looking up his 4 wheel progress whilst stating they aren't interested - why don't you just ignore them.

Can't can you - he's firmly embedded in your minds
