Casey Stoner: Marc Marquez felt threatened by my Honda MotoGP role

Casey Stoner: Marc Marquez felt threatened by my Honda MotoGP role - MotoGP news - AUTOSPORT.com

This is consistent with MM's snide comments relating to CS's development.

I Ride: A motorcycle, obviously.
It's kind of a funny situation here. All the people who regularly yell "Stoner the Moaner" are now put in a position to either agree with Stoner to have ammunition against Marquez, or disagree with Stoner to (indirectly) support Marquez, a person they've also been vehement with for a couple months now.

There's not much here to really argue about, though. Maybe Stoner is right...and so what? Marquez would have good reason to feel threatened by Stoner. From the point of view of Marquez (or any other rider for that matter), having Stoner in the paddock lowers their own chances of getting good points for the championship. Having Aoyama there.....not so much worry.

I was kinda disappointed to see Aoyama then. It was pretty obvious he was not gonna be doing anything remarkable.

He was exciting to watch when he was competing against the likes of Simoncelli for the last 250cc championship though. After he moved up, he was pretty "meh."

Well, Casey never has a problem expressing himself that's certain. I think he might be right though. Here's the problem. I suspect he'll get a chance to race the Ducati. If he gets blown out, HRC and MM will quickly come back and say "we told him he wasn't fast enough" and Casey will lose valuable stock. I like him, always been a big fan but certainly wish that he occasionally spoke less.

Not many bigger Casey fans than me, but this is fairly hollow rhetoric unless he is going to actually race again, and even he at his peak might not have been able to make a Ducati competitive against an HRC bike in current motogp.

As with many of his previous bold statements, he may still have the virtue of actually being correct however as you say. It may have come from HRC rather than MM though, MM is obviously their future, Stoner having previously refused their best ever offer, and at the time they were looking to find a temporary replacement for Dani MM was already throwing the bike down the road over-riding against his existing competitors; they likely figured he didn't need any further encouragement to do so which Stoner being out there would doubtless have provided.
