Stoner set to equal Rainey on all time win list

Casey Stoner now just one win behind MotoGP legend Wayne Rainey.
Casey Stoner's third win of the year at the recent Australian Grand Prix was also his 23rd MotoGP victory.

That moves him above three multi-world champions in the following list of riders with most wins in the premier-class.

Stoner is now just one win behind three-time world champion Wayne Rainey, but still has some way to go to reach the 54 wins of Mick Doohan - the most successful Australian rider of all-time.

However it should be noted, that having just celebrated his 25th birthday, Stoner is still younger than both Doohan and Rainey were at the time of their first grand prix win.

Stoner has taken all his wins since joining Ducati in 2007, the year he won the world championship. Stoner will move to Honda next year.


500cc/MotoGP wins

79 - Valentino Rossi
68 - Giacomo Agostini
54 - Mick Doohan
37 - Mike Hailwood
31 - Eddie Lawson
25 - Kevin Schwantz
24 - Wayne Rainey
23 - Casey Stoner

Even though Rainey's career was tragicly cut short that's quite an achievement

the GOAT = 79

GO DINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bring that Red Bull Honda!!!!!!!! (I hope but is more than likely it will be in the ugly repsol colors)

Here is some good info about dingo's problems

http://motomatters.com/news/2010/10/..._front_en.html

There are a lot of comments in there from guys that know what's going on in the pits and some from flossi lovers but what can you do lol

Here is a small stract with some information from Julian Ryder, yeah yeah not the most trust wirthy guy flossi will say lol

Several myths have grown up around Casey Stoner’s synergy with the 800cc MotoGP Desmosedici, the most oft-quoted being that it’s Ducati’s electronics package that gives him the advantage. If that were true, why couldn’t Loris Capirossi, Marco Melandri, Sylvain Guintoli, Toni Elias, Alex Barros or Alex Hofmann couldn’t ride it? It’s too early to add Nicky Hayden to that list.

Ducati team manager Livio Suppo’s favourite reason/excuse for this anomaly is rider-related, that all of them bar Casey have underperformed, the proof being Stoner’s ability to set an eye-watering lap time on his first or second flying lap. The other riders come in, take a look at the timing screens, note that they’re two seconds down and start changing everything rather than blaming themselves. Given the way riders’ minds work, there may be an element of truth here, but the speed with which the team changed Hayden’s race engineer after spending a year refusing to do the same for Melandri says otherwise.

Casey always professes himself mystified when asked why no one else can ride “his” bike. Recently, however, he has been a little more forthcoming. He’s suggested Nicky should try a “simpler setting” and revealed he’s using the oldest electronics package the team has because it gives him “more control”. This suggests he is riding the Duke with a minimum of electronic control, and that the others are trying to use too much. Corroboration comes from an experienced rival race engineer who told me Casey rides with virtually no traction control; in other words he is a genius with the throttle.

One thing’s for sure – the bike is hypersensitive. Asked on the Friday before Mugello whether the Ducati likes the circuit, Casey smiled: “It depends how it’s feeling”. We knew it was fickle before, becoming a different machine with the smallest tweaks at some tracks while refusing to feel any different after huge changes at others. Now it seems the thing can change its mind at the same circuit.
