Casey Stoner is a much more relaxed person now that his racing days are over. In this video provided by Alpinestars, he gives his thoughts on the 2015 MotoGP season so far, how he’s enjoying retirement (answer: it gives him much more time to go fishing), why he didn’t replace Pedrosa while he was recovering from his third arm pump surgery, and his outlook on the Suzuka 8-hour race, in which he will be competing for the first time since his retirement.

Ironically, one of Casey’s great displeasures from the MotoGP grind was all the media commitments entailed in his contract. Now, a few years removed from it all, doing one interview doesn’t seem to bother him much. Check out the video below.
