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...

In everyone's life there comes a time of trouble and adversity. How one deals with it is a measure of the character of the man.  In the case of two high profile characters in the last few years - both have faced set-backs and adversity.       One had the strength to fight on - the other did not and ran away.

Damaged psyche

You pick Mugello as an example of the 'damage' to his psyche and totally ignore the next race which he dominated. Why is that I wonder. Amateur psychiatry gone wrong?

He crashes in Germany and the next race he finished 8th. You're saying there's nothing to that? He won the race after yes, then launched himself off after that. Of course it's all completely random, and Nakamoto would be oblivious to his state of mind too.

Kind of like 2008 after Laguna, where he was not a happy bunny, crash, crash, 4th. Completely random though. His head wasn't affected at all.

Quite right bud. One had the strength to fight for 4 seasons at Ducati, the other ran away after 2.

Casey stayed at ducati for 4 years because he wasn't offered a factory honda or yamaha, rossi left because this is probably the last season he has any chance of the title.

I think the season you're referring to has long gone bud.

If you seriously think that riding round in circles on a bike is a test of adversity and trouble, being paid millions of pounds to do it as well....god help if they have some real shit in their lives....get a grip man and stop preaching bollox

If his head was fried, how did he put together such a dominant display in the LS race? You can't explain it can you, simply because no-one really knows the state of mind of another person - especially one they've never met. You also choose to ignore the other half a dozen (or more?) riders that crashed at Indy at the same corner. Was that due to pressure as well, or just being caught out by a bad track surface.

After LS 2008 he had to recover points which meant winning races - which is what he tries to do anyway. It's not inconceivable that he just lost the front pushing too hard on a bike that was unforgiving at best. Fact is again, you can't say because you don't know.

It just suits your purpose to say he crumbled under pressure.

Evidence dear Bulto

Sure I can explain Laguna 2012. He found a decent setting early on, a good one for the race and he won. I'm saying pressure gets to him, I'm not saying he starts dribbling from his mouth while rocking in a corner. I've no evidence for that. The following race at Indy he was nearly a second off Dani after first practice, and as a result pushing too hard, crashes.

You can't just say he had a decent set up for the race, therefore he won. It's subjective for a start. I can't remember actual figures but if I recall correctly, he was not at the front in Laguna in any practise session and Lorenzo pipped him to pole.
