Casey Stoner tilbage i Moto GP?
Stoner har ikke glemt at gi´ gas
To dages test på Motegi racerbanen er netop færdig for Casey Stoner. Værktøjet var en HRC Honda 2013 RC213V.
Der har været mange rygter ude om Casey Stoner ville returnerer til Moto GP, og denne test gøder med garanti disse rygter.
Casey Stoner udtaler selv efter testen:
“Thankfully today the weather improved a lot, in fact it was pretty hot, and we were able to get some good track time and work on our test program. We had a productive day in general and thankfully the test plan wasn't too hectic, so we were able to get most of it done today, after yesterday's washout. It was great to see the team, even if there were only a few people here, and I thank Honda for all their support as ever. It felt really good to get back on the bike after 9 months and I'm happy with how the test went, but it doesn't change my mind about the wild cards – this is not something I am planning to do.”
Honda's Shuhei Nakamoto – HRC Executive Vice President har denne kommentar:
“Over the course of Casey's two-day test, we’ve been able to gather a vast amount of data and ideas for development. Consequently, we aim to increase our pace of development and hope that this, in turn, will lead to us winning this year's Championship. We focused exclusively on the RC213V, but in future tests, we’ll get Casey to test-ride the tentatively named MotoGP Production Racer and assist in raising its level of performance even further.”
Spændende, spændende. Lad os bare få den dygtige australier tilbage hvor han hører hjemme.
