"I believe we can think about the championship because we have many possibilities to get it. The situation now is that I am not so fast as Dani or Casey, especially in setting fast laps, but also a little bit in race pace"

or Jorge, or probably Ben. . .

Top fella, hope he does well, but its gonna be a major struggle!

top lid too. Sponsor actually makes it look better for a change.

good luck to the repsol guys

good on honda for running a 3 man team & not leaving Dovi out in the cold after signing casey

& good on honda for the work they've done on the bike

at time when everyone seems to be slashing budgets & struggling for sponsors, honda have stepped up their game.

respect & good luck

all three of their riders deserve to do well next year

The only reason Dovi is in the factory team is because of the money he brings. Its not good enough for honda to have a rider in the top 5 that isn't winning races. He hasn't been battling up front and can't run a tough one from the front. Expect ths to be his last year even if it happens to be a good one

I think the situation is very clear for Andrea, if he doesn't beat his team mates, he's out. He seemed to have such brilliant potential when riding the satellite Honda but has never been a real threat at Repsol and unfortunately his testing pace equates to another underperforming season. I wish him all the best but he seems to have got into a 'not quite there' rut.

Totaly agrea with sweeble, he was awsome on the satalite honda then at the factory team it all went wrong. If pedrosa was uprite and not injured he destroyed dovi last year. But the same happened 2 biaggi and the other bloke who i carnt remember his name, makes you wonder if its a pressure thing. But saying that how can he hav a front end problem whn non of the other 3 factory bikes do!
