Ducati – Casey Stoner – The two Ducati dominate the first Free Practice on the Austrian circuit. However, the great absence is Casey Stoner. Ducati-Casey Stoner, a dream combination. The dream of many “Red” fans around the world. The Australian isn’t in Austria. But this is not a defeat.
“I had no plans to make the wild card in Austria. I haven’t changed my mind after two days of testing.” said Stoner a few weeks ago. The Ducati rider went out so the enthusiasm of “Red” fans. So, we can’t see the return of the last rider able to win with the Italian brand. For Casey it’s okay. He doesn’t need to prove anything. Then, a simple test allows him to stay on top of the Ducati technicians consideration. Stoner is a fantastic character, perhaps the only one in MotoGP with Valentino Rossi, able to whip up enthusiasm, dreams and expectations of fans. In Austria, the Ducati can win anyway and they are showing. However, Stoner isn’t there, but the Australian champion won without running.
Ducati – Casey Stoner: When a Wild Card?
Ducati would like that Casey Stoner takes a wild card between now and the end of the 2016 MotoGP World Championship. This year, the Italian brand has not won yet. Awaiting the arrival of Jorge Lorenzo, a “break” would be very important. With Casey Stoner would be the greatest. Because the Ducati fans could show the common thought. The Desmosedici is great, just missing the “winning horse”. But will Stoner want to return to racing? And if he loses? The people of MotoGP could be merciless and definitely say goodbye to one of the greatest riders in its history. What do you think? For now, we must wait Andrea Dovizioso and Andrea Iannone. The two Ducati must try to win in Spielberg. The two Italian pilots can entry in the history of Ducati. If they want.
