Casey Stoner to leave Honda

Twotime world champion to part company with HRC at the end of 2015

Casey Stoner to leave Honda

CASEY Stoner is to leave Honda Racing Corporation at the end of 2015 after five years, the Japanese manufacturer announced this afternoon.

Stoner joined the factory Honda MotoGP squad in 2011 under the Repsol Honda Team title.

The Australian won 10 races on the RC212V bike and achieved another six podium finishes throughout the season. He clinched his second world championship at his home Grand Prix at Phillip Island that year.

Throughout his career with Honda, Stoner has achieved a total of 15 victories, two second positions and nine third positions, making a total of 26 podiums. The now 30-year-old took 17 pole positions and nine fastest race laps as well as celebrating a second place finish and one pole position aboard the satellite LCR Honda in 2006.

He became an HRC factory test rider in 2013 after announcing his retirement from racing the previous year. He parts company with the team amid speculation of a return to Ducati, with whom he won his first championship title in 2007.

HRC Executive Vice President Honda Shuhei Nakamoto said: 'We have great memories of Casey’s time with Honda. From the moment he arrived in 2011 in the Repsol Honda Team we had a very close relationship and we always enjoyed speaking to him about racing and technical matters.

'Of course his championship win in 2011 was a very special moment for us and a highlight of my career. Even after his racing days were over, I enjoyed attending his tests to take with him and spend time together.

'We would like to thank him for everything he gave to us over the past five years and send our best wishes to him and his family.'
