The former Australian Ducati centaur: “I couldn’t enjoy it.”
Casey Stoner to the microphones of the official MotoGP podcast retraced his career. Speaking of the title with Ducati in 2007, the Australian rider reveals that he didn’t really enjoy it: “Especially in 2007, I didn’t enjoy it. I had received so much pressure from family and everything else to get there. Even in mine. races, I’ve never enjoyed the victories that much. I felt mostly a sense of relief. It was done, the weekend was gone. ”
A pressure that crushed him in the early part of his career: “I learned to enjoy these things much later in my career. I put a lot of pressure on myself to do things, I didn’t like making mistakes. I probably didn’t like making mistakes. more than I liked winning. That was more important to me than winning. I wasn’t really a perfectionist, but I came close. Even if I won a race but made mistakes, I wasn’t happy “, explained the Australian, who retired at just 27 in late 2012.
