Casey Stoner to Honda Deal Rumored
Casey Stoner to Honda deal rumored
No official announcement has been made, and the European motorcycle racing press has been known to report signings that turned out to be untrue. Last August, Spanish site Motocuatro reported Lorenzo had reached an agreement with Ducati. Instead, Lorenzo later re-signed with Fiat Yamaha.
If Stoner does sign with Repsol Honda, he would be reunited with former Ducati team manager Livio Suppo who is now responsible for raising sponsorships with Honda. Stoners departure would open a seat with Ducati Marlboro, which would be a dream come true to the Italian media. Indeed, the Sportmedia report goes to greater length about a possible Rossi-Ducati union than Stoner and Honda.
