Come back Casey

At the first MotoGP test of the year Casey Stoner proved that despite being away from the sport since 2012 he hasn’t missed a beat and is still a demon when up against the stopwatch.

Jumping straight back onto the limit on the first day of testing at Sepang, Stoner set a blistering pace by topping a timesheets and setting the benchmark for the rest of the three day test. However, MotoGP’s front runners can breathe a sigh of relief as the two-time MotoGP champion has absolutely no desire to return to racing, preferring to relish in his role of Ducati ambassador and test rider.

You can’t blame him either, the Australian sought to escape the drama surrounding the MotoGP paddock and the media circus that follows it, and if recent years have shown us anything the situation hasn’t improved much. So we’re lucky to catch the best of the Australian in the small doses.
