Casey Stoner tests 2014 factory Honda but no wild card plans

Casey Stoner was able to give HRC technical staff vital information on development of its 2014 factory RC213V MotoGP prototype at the Twin Ring Motegi track in Japan today. But the Aussie ruled out any plans to race as a wild card later this season after it was rumoured he would make a sensational return to racing in his home race...

 Yep Nostro is well and truely bitter and it has made it worse seeing Stoner ride again. Nostro must be thinking 'if only Stoner was as mentally as strong as Rossi, then he would still be in the championship hunt today'.............Get over it Nostro, you sad fck.

Pity...

Looks to me that the clean racing BS talk that Stoner, Pedrosa and Lorenzo went on about is dead and buried. That's what it is about. Is someone drops like Marco then bring in the next rider and let's get on with it. It's brutal but it gives us amazing races and keeps the sponsors happy. Stoner didn't like this. He wanted racing essentialy without the excitement. In other words if I am faster than you step aside and let me win. No no no. Lugana Seca 2008 many more times is what I want. If a rider starts to moan about agressive riding then go elsewhere. I love motogP and TT. Not pansies whining about safety till the cows come home.

 Just looked up bell end in the dictionary = nastro bell endus . It's also kiwi for fuckwit and cock. It never ceases to amaze me how a nine times world champion can be slated. That's like saying that Schumacher is not as good as vettel or Nicklaus as good as woods. Nastro to be blunt you talk shit. Rossi is 34 years old and still winning yet you keep calling him the world number six. So you are obviously saying that dovi is better then Rossi. Now forgive me as I am not Stephen Hawkins but how can a guy that has won one damp race be better then a nine times world champion. YOU ARE A RETARD.

Development

Looks like Honda are very happy to have the World's No. 1 Development Rider to assist them with next years bikes. Doesn't matter what he gets paid Honda will save 10 times that amount in design/production/material costs and of course a vast amount of saved time. They seem to have picked up a lot of useful info in a short time, more testing later.

I bet Honda can't beleave their luck,the biggest hassle any team has is having a test rider fast enough to tell e'm how the bike is working and Stoner gets paid without having to do all the PR crap happy days for all concerned.

I do not know if you have heard but Casey was well off the pace of last years times.
There is more to this than meets the eye and it has not benefited anyone really.
The truth will come out.

 Maybe it is not a blessing for Honda. Stoner might 'ride around' any problem there is with the RC213V and not give them the feedback that they want.

Ha,ha, those figures

 bear all the hallmarks of a Wosi stat plucked straight from his arse. But let's take the bag of fleas at face value. You've got to wonder what the old boy was doing running around so much whilst achieving so little. Riders with clear, concise feedback like Stoner and Doohan needed little time in identifying a machines faults and weaknesses.  At his age you'd think the current world nr.6 would be a bit smarter with his time on the bike.
