Casey Stoner Speaks Out

The Australian said he doesn't think his career is threatened by his strange illness and reported he can't wait to get back to racing.

During his break from racing, rumors spread about the possibility he may abandon the sport, but the 23-year-old Australian promptly declined them saying he can't wait to get back on the bike again. Stoner is following a new diet and a resting program in order to get back up in shape and so far he said he is happy with it and feels it has results.

"I haven't lost my love for bikes and racing and neither for Ducati. My plan is to return to racing as soon as I get my energy back", said the Australian in an ample interview for Motosprint.

"The objective is still to race in Portugal. I would like to carry on racing for a few more years, because racing a bike is what I hope to be doing as soon as possible. I just need to recover and to get back to a level of form that allows me to do that well", said the 2007 MotoGP world champion.

"I can't come to terms with the fact that I can't ride to the best of my abilities. The Desmosedici is capable of winning, but I'm not. At least not at the moment. That's why I've taken this break: I want to rest, I want to find again the energy to go back doing what I used to do before with this bike", continued Stoner.

Casey's father, who is also his manager appeared very happy with his son's health improvement. "It's been positive, and in fact there are already positive signs, recovery signs, just for having rested a bit and for having completely reviewed the nutrition and preparation programmes", declared his father.

"He is following a program designed to allow him to rest completely without thinking of the races. On top of that he is on a different diet and he takes some medicines", he added.

With Stoner expected to return for the Estoril race, we wish him a speedy recovery and a pleasant resting time away from stress.
