Casey Stoner unlikely to take up HRC test role again

Double MotoGP world champion Casey Stoner is looking increasingly unlikely to continue as test and development rider for Honda in 2014. HRC had intended to keep the Australian developing its factory RC213V throughout 2014 after he made numerous testing appearances in Japan at the end of last season. Stoner, who retired from MotoGP at the end of 2012, is taking a complete...

Bulto

 I agree with you, i think HRC will be doing everything it can to catch up. Aleix is extremely fast on that bike, and i agree with you again that he is the difference at the minute. We will have to see how the season pans out before we know which one will be better in the open class!

Christ, the open class is already more interesting than CRT!

Insight..?

mmm yes..thanks for that Bulto. Although I swear your rimming partner Nostril said exactly the same thing recently.

Let's see..

Stoner rejected the 2013 chassis that cured Pedrosa's chatter and sent him on a winning spree, the like of which we have NEVER seen before or since. Nakamoto is on record blaming this decision for him crashing at Indy and ruining chances of backing up a title. He took Ducati from winners to losers. Everybody knows he rode around problems rather than try to fix them. He had fk all to do with anything on Marquez' bike.

Why would Honda get Stoner to test the bike with their proprietary full bollocks electronics package, when the bike was built NOT to use it?

Espargaro ran spec electronics and the open M1 was fine. HRC have had over a year to sort their shit out.

Alexi is nothing special..never has been. Edwards is just old and slow.

Nakamoto told lies to sell his bikes..either that or Stoner was just plain dog-slow on the factory prototype. If he was fast, they would have released times.

Wosi.

 They (Stoner and Pedrosa) have well distinct different style don't they? Plus didn't Pedrosa won more gp than Lorenzo in 2012?

I'm not sure (unfortunately) that Pedrosa is the best reference there is to compare, as for Nakamoto, he might have played technico-commercial, this is couldn't tell.

ps you know that i am interested in your opinion as much as many here but sometimes you are hard to read i admit, is there something you know about it that might bring a different Pov/insight?

Espagaro..

 ..was essentially on Cal's bike from last year, with a very sticky tyre and 24 litres of fuel. Let's wait and see what happens when they stick the FTR chassis in and Honda have had the time to tweek the bike from the data at Sepang 1..

 

Wosi, you just can't leave Casey alone can you? He's gone pal, dry your eyes, pull up your tights and let it go..

 

Sad old F*cker...

I can't get into this fan war thing.

I don't really care what people say about one pilot, when Roberts first came to Europe, everyone was into Barry Sheene big time and though of Roberts as a posh idiot because he was camera shy and didn't answer too many interviews, neither did he smile that much, oh yeah, the "Yellow dwarf" they called him.

Is this a populatiry contest? From my PoV no, it's a racing competition, so why don't we just look at what make them fast instead of the rest? I frankly can't understand this...

Anyway, i have expressed my opnion on Stoner driving and i stick to it, now you all are free can debate his personality as much as you want but i'd rather read on bike riding and technical stuff, no?

Heh Heh

 Really, why should he bother either way ? L4 Honda, L4 Ducati  Enjoy the fishing !!! Gone are the inglorious days of old and the dream team that was Preziosi's brainchild, Suppo's managerial skills, Gabarini's 'here and now'  accumen on any weekend and of course, Tardozzi's calling a spade,a spade, Stoner;s unbelievable tallent. Well at least 1/3rd of the 2007 dream team are back.

Just to clarify. Tardozzi was not in those days involved with the Ducati MGP effort. He was running the SBK effort, but allways kept a close eye on MGP issues

The greatest replacement for Stoner was Marquez , unquestionably. Similar in more ways than one. A 'bumpless transfer' of rider,one could say. Dare I say it ? Sure! Given the pathetic kit Marquez had at his diposal in his junior days,I reckon he could go to Ducati and wring its bloody neck like Stoner did.

Hey George ? Are you up for the big offer sans Yasini/Aprilia . Sure as hell Marc will take a shot at it

For Christ's sake bring back the tyre war as a matter of urgency. My bloody Valentine.

It always boils down to a popularity contest bud.

Herd Mentality v Free Thinkers i guess.

And 'Veritas', i would all day long bud. I've no problem with that..................................But it would have been painful dropping my draws with 'Wosis' Doc Martens looming a while ago!
