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...

Nakamoto on Rossi.

"He is a talented rider and we all expect him to do a good race," Nakamoto said when quizzed on Rossi's issues with Ducati.

"After he left Honda, he wrote a book and said it is the rider what matters and not the machine.

"So now is the time for him to prove that. If he comes back to the top we will try desperately to beat him."

Nakamoto on Stoner

"We held a farewell party for Casey Stoner after Valencia. When the party was over, the two of us stayed on, chatting, and I found I couldn't control my tears... Everyday Casey came up with something new that astonished us"

"Right from the first day Casey came to ride for Repsol Honda, pretty much every day he came up with something new that astonished us. I don't know of any other rider that is such fun to work with. I hope he quickly recovers from his injury, and if he ever decides to come back he will find a warm welcome waiting. I told him that's always on offer".

"Casey is a rider I really love. I couldn't imagine anything better than racing with him. Casey is fast. Really fast. We were constantly shocked that the bikes we had made could go so fast when Casey was in the saddle. When Casey is confident and relaxed about his riding, there is nobody in MotoGP who can come close."

Someone with questionable mental fortitude questioning the mental fortitude of others?

 And likes to speak in the 3rd person? It's not ironic it's moronic...

Burgess on Rossi

"He's a realist, he knows he's perhaps not at the level of Casey and Lorenzo but he certainly believes he can race with the rest of them," Burgess said.

"At some point in your life you're not as good as you once were".

Yes..CH987.

There is no doubt on his day, Casey's pace was astonishing..shocking even. That's not what Nakamoto was talking about though is it, in my excerpt from the interview?

When the man speaks with such glowing praise about certain strengths, but in the next breath is so brutally honest about weakness..we listen, or at least some of us do.

About Rossi?..you wouldn't expect any different from him after the way HRC perceived Val dumped them, almost as a traitor.

They promised to crush him..10 years after he left Honda have just 2 titles.

Perhaps they should give Preziosi a call?

 

Fk me..the turncoat returns, don't forget we have a date out the back of the L&V..amongst the big bins and empties?

wosi

Unfortunately for #27ers, Shuei Nakamoto IS talking about the man and his personality.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

That doesn't make him right though. It's his OPINION and that's all it will ever be bud, no matter how much you credit it as 'correct'.

 This is what makes it so sad about Stoner. There is no doubt he was a fast rider and he could of had the world at his feet, but because of his mental weakness he couldn't reach his full potential.

these are desperate times

for you Wosi, aren't they?

It is amusing to watch you cycle down through one of these threads, where you start and end with petty malice, obviously having nothing else to offer. You seem to operate with the ludicrous belief that repeating peurile arguments often enough and mixing them with schoolboy insults will somehow make them true. Why don't you threaten to hold your breath until I agree with you? That is about your level. Repetitive petty malice doesn't even make you grandly malicious, just more pettily malicious.

So Nakomoto would have liked Stoner to win a third championship in 2012 and thinks he had the talent to do so? Hardly  startling insights. He doesn't think whilst recognising many excellent qualities that Stoner is a perfect human being? Again, hardly startling..

What is patently obvious is that it is Stoner's success rather than any failings he may have had which so rankles with you, as your multiple mewling posts completely irrelevant to the topic of this thread once again indicate.  In this reality Stoner still won as many championships in his time in the premier class as any of the riders he rode against over the same period, including 2 unequivocally great riders, and more races, 38 in total, 4th on the all-time list, and watching him ride even a single lap in his spectacular style was a joy for anyone interested in the actual sport and the limits of the possible as far as GP bike riding goes rather than in a  pantomime show. Oh, and to join you in perseverating,  the inconvenient truth for you is that 4 of his 7 years in the premier class, 23 of his wins and 1 of his championships were on a Ducati which no-one else could ride.
