Exclusive: Casey Stoner to test factory Honda in Japan

Double world champion Casey Stoner will make a dramatic return to MotoGP action next month when he tests a factory Honda RC213V at the Twin Ring Motegi track in Japan, MCN can reveal. The outspoken but blindingly fast Australian, who retired from MotoGP immediately after the final race of 2012 in Valencia last November, will take part in a two-day test...

Wosi, does it really matter mate?

Either way Flo looked like a twat given the reputation wankers like yourself have pushed since your first wet dream about the nancy. The facts remain that Stoner won and podiumed a shit load of times, so in his hands it was a competitive bike. He's really no different to any other rider and has no super powers and as a very wise man once said...

If a rider can do a fast lap now and then (which it has, even in Flo's withered hands), then there can't be too much wrong with it and it's down to the rider to figure out how to do it consistently.

Now the bike may be unique and Stoner certainly did the lions share of making it perform but the fact remains, Flo couldn't do squat on it, whether in Stoner's race winning trim nor with 2 full years and countless millions funnelled into it under the development genius of your boyfriend and the best 'engineer' in the business.

Wosi, if what you say is accurate...

..why on earth would HRC be so concerned with getting Stoner back on their bike? - Surely, if he's as bad at developing a bike as you would have us believe, is it not fair to think Nakamoto and the boys (you know, the one's that are privy to the facts ) would have an inkling of that too? The truth is, when it come's to Stoner, you're talking bollocks again...

CHR..

Pay attention you drug addict..I already explained why they're getting him back on their bike..and it's got fk all to do with him giving clear, concise feed back that helps develop anything.

 

..and Bob, go on Pal, tell me that Casey would've have been winning on the CF bike in 2011/12?

..that in his prone to smashing the fker up hands, he'd have been challenging for a title against slick shifting RCV's and Lorenzo on his M1?

Stoner consistently took that bike backwards and bailed at exactly the right moment.

Draw a line..10-6-4-3-bail..even you should be able to understand that dickhead.

It's Nakamoto that wants him back

He never wanted him to leave, and if there's a chance that giving him a test on the RCV stokes those fires again, he'll take it.

Wosi, I have no doubts Stoner could have won races for Ducati in 2011/12, challenging? Well they were relying on Stoner more than their engineering, so unless they opened the purse strings I think they were bound to fall behind. Unfortunately all the money in the world couldn't counteract Flo's lack of skill.

Stoner finished with more points in 2010 than in 2009 despite the same number of dns/dnf's. Another of your myths busted.

"Fact. Stoner was beaten fair and square by Danny last year Fact. Stoner crashed trying to beat Danny Fact. Stoners ambition outweighed his talent Fact"


So is it every time someone loses or every time someone crashes that their talent is outweighed by their ambition?... as I recall it was Rossi's ambition to win a championship at Ducati... he didn't have the talent... "I lost the bet" were his words. DP crashed at PI handing the championship to JL... talent/ambition deficit? They've all crashed in races trying to push harder. Rossi 2006?

Stoner coined that old, old phrase on that day because Rossi's talent/ambition imbalance took him out of the race... a view we would all share in similar circumstances.

Oh come on..you simple child. You're starting to sound like that dullard Hedgehog5?

Not starting races - because 10 weeks off and fishing holiday is needed to get over a poorly tummy, plus flipping yourself over the bars on the warm-up..haha (certainly tamed the mofo that day didn't he?) - isn't the same as writing the bike off unaided, after starting, within 6 laps in 5 out of 18 races..is it?

Carry on dreaming Fanboy..winning races my arse.

"One of the highlights of the race was the speed of the four Ducati-engined machines in the field, sometimes with a margin of 20 km/h over the fastest of the others at the end of the kilometre-long Qatar front straight..."

" Casey Stoner won the race on the new GP7. The bike had a clear top speed advantage over the rest of the grid, due to its higher output motor. A new track record was set on the GP7. Second place contender and five time former World champion, Yamaha's Valentino Rossi, complained that "unfortunately, there was too much difference between (our) bikes in the straight" and "Our Yamaha will never go as quick on a straight as the Ducati." These words turned out to be true, as the GP7 enjoyed a top speed advantage throughout the season, although the other manufacturers (Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki and Suzuki) closed the gap significantly by the end of the year" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ducati_Desmosedici)

FIM's Webb not surprised by Ducati speed
By Toby Moody Wednesday, March 14th 2007, 10:43 GMT (http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/57294)

FIM technical director Mike Webb has said that he was not surprised by Ducati's straight-line speed advantage in Qatar last weekend.

"Casey Stoner was able to consistently ride away from Valentino Rossi along the main straight of the Losail circuit, leaving the Yamaha team baffled by their lack of power in comparison."

Of course racing is not all about straights:

"'People keep talking about the Ducati's top speed, but they forget that the bike goes round corners brilliantly as well,' Stoner said. 'It's a great all-round package...'  (http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2007/jun/03/motorsports.sport1)

Of course, what was commonly known was wrong, what Stoner stated was wrong, you and Macey know better.

ps. Call Stoner and tell him to stop giving those interviews, obviously he doesn't know shit of what he is talking about.

"with a margin of 20 km/h over the fastest of the others at the end of the kilometre-long Qatar front straight"


He had that margin for 1 lap of 1 race over Rossi... lap 7 yeah?... that's it... Rossi himself went almost 10k faster than that later in the race... Sylvan Guintoli who finished 15th on a satellite Yamaha was over 11k faster than he was on lap 7, himself almost 4k faster than Barros on a Ducati.

Isn't it strange the quote doesn't say that Casey was only 8kph faster than the lowest finishing satellite Yamaha? Paints a different picture eh? Why weren't they asking why Rossi was slower than the Tech 3 Yamaha of Tamada through the speed trap in qualifying?

"Casey Stoner was able to consistently ride away from Valentino Rossi "

Exactly what I said... Rossi had a problem... & that's what you remember.

"please shut up" :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
