I like Stoner, and I could see how he would say some of these things to defend his dominance. I bet he he hears it everywhere that his lead in the championship is due to his bike and his tires. You would get sick of it too. Stoner is a solid rider and deserves credibility.
I agree though that the new tire rule blows.
Rossi dealt with the same thing when he was at Honda, oh, its cause hes on a Honda, the Honda is faster than the rest...
and they all laughed when he went to Yamaha, they said he could never win again there.
and look, 1st fukin race, BAM! a testament to him, Burgess and the crew.
He laughed so hard he had to come off the bike and sit down laughing...
When anyone else does that, leave a top team to go take 2 more titles on a bike that was considered inferior, then they can talk ****, until them, Stoner has no place.
Hes leading for 2 reasons, 1 the tire, and lets not forget that he won the 1st 3 races un contested because his bike walked away from the competition, remember?
remember when rossi would whip his ass in the turns and be leading and before they got halfway down the straight away Stoner and the superior Ducati power was already infront of him, gone, remember?
remember the double take Rossi took like WTF?
yeah.. Stoner can stfu.. the championship isnt over yet, and Rossi has closed bigger gaps before, remember last year?
yeah so he had better pray that Michelin doesnt pull a magic trick out of that fukin french hat
