    On with the matter at hand: something must have gone wrong with Honda for Stoner to come out saying things like "There are a lot of things that have disappointed me, and also a lot of things I have loved about this sport, but unfortunately the balance has gone in the wrong direction"
    I believe he is talking about motogp and he's right.

    "When there's a gap you either commit yourself as a professional racing driver that is designed to win races or you come second or you come third or come fifth, and I'm not designed to come third, fourth, or fifth. I race to win, and if you no longer go for a gap that exists, you're no longer a racing driver."

    Maybe, but if the money is what's important to him then retirement doesn't make much sense. As the best, or at least top 2, rider right now without a contract for next year it stands to reason he could do very well in negotiations.
