Paddock Press: Roberts on Stoner´s 2008 season

Paddock Press: Roberts on Stoner´s 2008 season

Casey Stoner goes under the spotlight in the latest journalist review.

The Paddock Press series turns its focus to the runner-up in the 2008 season, as BBC pitlane reporter Matthew Roberts looks back over Casey Stoner´s title-defending year. Stoner may have come up short in his second season with Ducati, but British journalist Roberts believes that the season has been far from a write-off for the 2007 MotoGP World Champion.

`To get first and then second over two years in MotoGP is an outstanding achievement,´ he says in the accompanying video. `Far from being a disappointment this year losing the title, I think that it´s been a real success, and Casey will look back on it that way too.´

Paddock Press concludes tomorrow, running the rule over 2008 MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi´s glorious year.
