While the current season is on hold, retired MotoGP™ champion Casey Stoner has this week spoken to Chris Vermeulen on his career and what the future might hold for him in the sport.
Stoner, a two-time MotoGP™ World Champion, retired in 2012. Since then, the Australian has taken a step back to focus on his health and family but hopes to get back involved with MotoGP™ in the future.
“I think I have a lot to give to the sport, there are certain aspects that I think outside of the box that can help in some ways,” Stoner said.
“I know what needs to be done to win races and I think that I really have something to give back in the future.”
Fellow Aussie rider Jack Miller is set to follow in Stoner’s footsteps in 2021, having recently being announced as one of the two official Ducati Team riders for next season.
Stoner believes Ducati made the right choice in signing Miller, who steps up from the Pramac Racing Team..
“Jack’s really matured and I’ve been impressed with the way he has structured himself. You see it in the results and the way he works,” Stoner said.
“I’m really happy for Jack and for Australia to have another guy on a factory bike.”
