June.09 – The Honda riders Casey Stoner and Andrea Dovizioso took time out of their timetable in order to pay a visit to the Red Bull F1 facility in Milton Keynes. The Australian and Italian were given a guided tour, shown cars of Vettel and Webber and allowed a opportunity to use the simulator.
“The whole day has been amazing, to learn how much technology is used in F1 and see it first hand is spectacular,” said Stoner, who is currently chasing Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo for the championship lead. “When I watch the F1 races now I’m going to know a little more about what’s going on behind the scenes and understand what the drivers are going through. My time on the simulator was something special; to understand how late they can actually brake was something remarkable to experience and I guess it’s as close as I’ll ever get to feeling that. I’d like to thank all the guys at Red Bull, it’s been an unbelievable day and something I’d love to do again, for sure.”
