Honda boss Livio Suppo has moved quickly to quash speculation that Casey Stoner is considering a comeback to motorcycle racing.
The Australian two-time MotoGP world champion has been recalled by Honda to complete a two-day test of its 2015 prototype at Japan's Motegi circuit this week.
Stoner, who retired from MotoGP at the end of 2012, has tested for the Japanese giant as recently as last year, but has spent this season on the sidelines having elected to step away from all forms of motorsport.
The test is the 29-year-old's first ride on a MotoGP bike for a year sparking speculation he could be in line for a return.
However, Honda boss Suppo has reiterated that the test is not part of a long term program for Stoner.
“As planned Casey is riding the 2015 RC213V,” Repsol Honda's Team Principal Suppo told GPone.com
“As we said earlier in the year the test has been organised with him after we lost some test time last year due to bad weather.
“So we've put together this two-day test, but for now there is no other test program planned. We prefer to take a day-by-day approach.”
Stoner is set to evaluate new Michelin tyres set to become MotoGP's control rubber from 2016 as he concludes the test today.
