Casey Stoner Gives Interesting Interview at Nolan Helmets Event

061015top-i

Earlier this week, Casey Stoner appeared at an event to introduce a new Nolan helmet, and showed the graphic scheme of his helmet for the upcoming Suzuka 8 Hours event, which he will contest this year aboard a Honda superbike. Stoner took questions from journalists gathered at the event, and provided some interesting information. You can hear Stoner’s entire interview responses in English by following this link, but here are a couple of interesting statements he made to whet your appetite:

“I’m not planning on doing any wild cards. I’m not planning on coming back or anything like this. It was just, I was going to fill in for Dani.”

“Jorge at the moment is incredibly fast.”

As an aside, it is expected Stoner will take a lap or two at Catalunya this weekend aboard the new exotic Honda street bike, the RC213V-S

    Casey, please coe back and ride the new Ducati.

  2. Gary says:

    The only real revelation is that Stoner values his freedom to openly pout and complain over making money. Makes it sound like he was overindulged as a child. He sure was fast though.

  3. Brinskee says:

    Is there a transcript of this somewhere so we can read it?

    I hope he bever cones back to MotoGp, because he was terrible for the sport. A champion caliber rider with a bad attitude means no goodwill towards his sport. I notice in the last year that racing the finest bikes in the world while being paid millions of dollars has apparently become more appealing to him. Keep him out

      Never understood this perspective on Stoner.

    • Dave says:

      He was great for the sport and it’s now less for him being gone. He was fast and there was nothing wrong with his attitude. He voiced his concerns for the state of the sport despite the obvious pressure not to, and ultimately decided to leave on his own terms.

    • Lenz says:

      Casey Stoner’s presence in MotoGP was absolutely NOT terrible for the sport. His results speak for themselves – the fact he retired at a relatively young age was a decision only he could make based on a lifetime of achievement in motorcycling.

      Casey made good money doin what he did best – staying alive and enjoying family life is absolutely the best payoff for his time in the hotseat.

        Well put. Life is short and for most of us what we hold dearest are our families. I never could understand the intense disdain for him either. He had some outbursts (tell me that’s never been seen in motorsports before.) but he seemed to be cast as a spoiled brat. Perhaps if he hadn’t been a podium finisher none of it would have been noticed or just swept aside?

        I’d like to see him return.

    I’d like to see him back on a Duc racing MotoGP.

    Very interesting, very, very interesting!
