People keep going on and on about this weight advantage that Dani has.But it has not won him a world title in motogp has it?
How much heavier than Dani is Vale?
And how many titles has Vale won?
What weight advantage is that then?
Seems to me that the HEAVIER you are the more titles you win right?

A fully fit Pedrosa could definitely be a contender since he has shown glimmerings of brilliance. BUT. . . maybe it's too late anyway, becuase IT IS LORENZO'S LAND !!!

Did a search on the web and could not return any results for....the smartest give up first.

Do you mind letting us all know where it came from? I am interested to know the context etc.

Kind regards.

...There is a saying that the smartest give up first, there's no point to reply to stupidity.... this is a transalation from Romanian language(cel mai destept cedeaza).

I like reading the comments o, but there is a trend it seems that for every article (usually) with Pedrosa, Stoner and Rossi a lot of people(usually haters) start just writing stupid comments (like the second one in this article) and then other reply to that. The result is just a meaningless discussion.

Anyway, maybe what I wrote may seems stupid to others.

Have a nice day!

Hope Dani is good to race at estoril, the poor guy has had the worst luck ever and 99% of the time its not even his fault (Like his pit crew telling him the guys behind are closer than they are when its Piszing down with rain or a throttle sticking open). Would really like to see him win a championship.

As for rider weight it may be an advantage off the start but this guy has to work alot harder coming out the corners to pick the bike up so i think that helps level the playing field.

Dani has been top Honda all except for 2006 and aside from a wet dry race win by Dovi and Casey at Qatar he has won all of Hondas race wins on the 800. He missed as much time as Rossi last year but finished second the second time he has beaten Rossi in the championship. Honda lost their way but Dani is no pushover. He is also a 3 time WC.

Pedrosa's main problem was his bike. He (and Dovi) seemed to have a lot of problem keeping the bike upright and Pedrosa was the lesser alien.

After the bike was fixed mid last season, Pedrosa became as competitive as any of the aliens.
