Two-time MotoGP World Champion Casey Stoner has reiterated that he has no plans to race again having not raced in four years and does not plan on changing anything in 2017.
The 31-year-old Australian told Bikesportnews.com at the Milan Show that he will be in Valencia but won't be racing and is there to test Ducati’s Panigale Superleggera 1299 ultra-bike.
Stoner said is happy in his position as a Ducati test rider and hasn’t changed his mind.
"I haven't been racing the last four years and I won't be there next season. Yes, I will be at Valencia for the finale and for the test," Stoner said. "I’m curious to see how our new bike will work and also all the changes of team and riders for the 2017 season.
"The two-day test session is very important. We need to understand where we are and how to improve the bike. This year we have done a great job and I’m happy to have given my contribution.
"From the first test, I saw massive changes and a group of people fully committed. I saw so much effort. Everybody was listening and working. Both Andreas (Dovizioso and Iannone) have been fantastic – showing what we are capable of and what we can do in the future."
