Rossi: Stoner 'started to hate me' after Laguna 2008
Sure, wait until the guy leaves then talk about him.
IMHO, not too classy there, VR
I'd put the antipathy starting towards the end of 2007, when Rossi and Ezpeleta put pressure on Bridgestone to supply Rossi. I remember Stoner calling Rossi a whiner for asking for "his" tires. (It was funny watching Vermeulen parrot Stoner.)
I don't doubt Stoner will air opinions about his former colleagues in the weeks and years to come. It won't be classy or unclassy -- it's inevitable.
