MotoGP » Puig: MotoGP 2010 will be a 'contest of stamina'

ever since the anti-hayden comments this smug punk made a few years back, I have cheered against honda. Nothing against Dani or Dovi. Just sucks they have have to lumped in with this worthless piece of sh**.

Puig actually reflects my own feeling re-2010. I said months ago that this year will go about consistency rather than dramatic races. HRC know that Dani is still their best ticket. Starting fit, staying in the points race by race could see him lift the title, like Nicky did. Of course I'm rooting for a Duc whitewash which probably won't happen,not with the Yam pre-season dominance.Things turn topsy turvy in a millisecond on track.Should Dani stay consistent and injury free,the critics and punters could be crying their eyes out come 7/11 Valencia,just like 2006.

Rossi and Burgess build a title winning bike at honda, go to yam and do the same. Pedrosa and Puig take a title winning bike and "develop" it in to an mid pack finnisher (with help from HRC arrogance). They are lost and out of their league.

More sponsorship money than talent, Puig was the same in his days as a racer, his pet Dwarf Cockroach Dani is going backwards and cannot even blame his own lack of development skills as OK racers on Satellite bikes have just proven.

Does he have a contract for next year ?

I don't blame Rasputin for Honda's miserable state, I blame Honda for standing around with their finger up their corporate butt, doing nothing while Puig's agenda destroyed the team. Years of back-alley politics and backstabbing have come home to roost - Karma's a bitch, ain't it Alberto!

Puig has always had bad press, maybe deservedly..
He seems to be a bit of a control freek and he's certainly had influence over Dani...but in the BIG class between them, they have delivered SFA.
Pedrosa to me, deserves his place as an alien up until now..but people have been questioning his set up skills, and his test results show he's struggling.
The race is the race and he's a tough little fcuker, so I wouldn't write him off just yet, but..?
