Courtesy of the GPOne.com YouTube page, we have a full interview of Casey Stoner after his first day aboard the Ducati GP15 at Sepang yesterday. This is a very interesting interview, which you should definitely take the time to watch. An additional video clip includes a brief meeting, and conversation, between Stoner and Ducati Factory rider Andrea Ianonne in the Ducati paddock.
News outlets are reporting Stoner, who hasn’t taken a single lap on a MotoGP bike in over a year, and last rode any street bike more than 6 months ago when he crashed heavily at Suzuka on a Honda superbike, got his lap time down to within 1.5 seconds of the fastest race lap at Sepang last year. Whether Stoner will race any wildcard rounds this year remains to be seen, but it is expected he will be on track with the rest of the MotoGP regulars at the official Sepang test next week. Should be interesting.
