Dani isn't a great passer... kind of like Biaggi. He's got the raw speed and fast laps but he can't get past anyone after he's been passed... maybe once in a blue moon he can but he'll never beat Casey, Rossi, Or Lorenzo in a straight up dog fight.

And what about Puig? Does he get to keep creeping around the garage or does he have to stand outside? That was supposed to be the hold-up in the signing.

d mac-there's a subtlety to dani's racecraft that may have escaped you. if you can get to the front and clear off, then you need not be the best passer in the world.
a general observation. racers seem to have a lot of admiration for DP and his speed. it's only internet 'tron' racers that seem to denigrate his abilities or manage to bring puig into any discussion regarding DP(ahem bubbabub).
outsiders are not privy to the relationship between DP and AP. it's obviously a partnership that works for them, like VR's and Uchio's (sp?).
DP just happens to be racing the GOAT. no shame in coming second/third to him.

a final comment to d mac.
what you can accuse DP of is failing to develop the rcv into being a race winning bike week in week out. that's the genius of VR, yamaha and JB. DP stuffing it in winter testing most years does'nt help either.
not withstanding, it seems to me that yamaha seem to have a better development team than hrc (their respective rider line-up being considerably stronger). i mean, imagine testing different suspension halfway through the season. seems like they're clutching at straws in a bid to claw back the gap to yamaha. most close observers say that the yamaha is comprehensively the better machine at the moment.
take a bow hrc....

yeah, congratulation Dani n Dovi :D :D :D
finally you've signed the nu contract...
that's the best choice for them, especially for dani that had a rumour to Ducati :?
although dani want to beat 'only for casey' motorcycle package, he must adapt first...
n... whereever his position in championship standing 2009, i'm waiting for #26 on dani's 2010 :D i hope
GooD LuCK, guys! :)
