Colin Stoner gives father's perspective on Donington race

Colin Stoner gives father's perspective on Donington race

Having seen his son take victory number five of the season last Sunday, Colin Stoner had reason to be proud after the Nickel & Dime British Grand Prix.

Having seen his son take victory number five of the season last Sunday, Colin Stoner had reason to be proud after the Nickel & Dime British Grand Prix. The Australian spoke to motogp.com after the race, explaining that it was something of an edge-of-seat occasion for the Stoner family looking on.

"Today was very nerve racking, with the situation of the tyres and everything involved in that," said Stoner Sr. "It was really good to see him finish the race; I wasn't really egging him on to go faster, just hoping that he'd complete the distance. He kept his head down and rode a very cool race."

Having broken one of the least surprising pieces of news –that Ducati would take up an option on the current World Championship leader for next season- just a few weeks ago, the head of the Stoner family shed a little further light on the current situation regarding what will happen beyond 2008.

"We've spoken to Ducati and agreed on terms as far as next year goes. At the moment, nothing is official beyond that, but obviously Casey and Ducati are both very happy together, and I can't see any reason for a change," he concluded.
