Numerous Australian news sites are reporting this morning that former MotoGP champion Casey Stoner has decided to end his V8 Supercar career, effective at the end of the season.
The Daily Telegraph news site states that Stoner may jump-start a V8 career at a later date. He has complained about his media and sponsor commitments and wants to have an entire season off before deciding whether or not he will resume his two-wheel career or have another crack in a V8.
As one man who knows him well said when Stoner retired from MotoGP "Casey himself doesn't know what he wants."
The Australian seems to be exhibiting signs making that more prophecy than opinion.
Stoner expressed outrage that news of his MotoGP retirement was leaked, denying it was true. A week later he announced his retirement.
Stoner said he wanted to retire to a small farm in Australia by a body of water, far away from everyone. Instead he bought a gigantic mansion in a posh community, although it is on a body of water.
Stoner wanted to leave racing behind, was sick of the sponsor and media commitments and complained that fans had spit on him. But he basically stopped racing in a high profile motorcycles series and began racing cars, or "tin tops" as they are known in Australia, in a very high profile Australian series.
In recent days Stoner's social media posts are centered around RC car racing. He brought an RC car with him to the recent rained out HRC test in Japan.
