I'm surprised Dovi is so high up

Rossi doesn't have feel on the front so won't brake as late... he didn't look too confident on the brakes at Mugello

They can brake so late because engine braking helps slow the bike down into corners... I'd love to be in the position of Stoner wrestling a MotoGP bike around a track like Mugello

No surprises Liam re Dovi. He's always been one the best since his 250 days all the way through GP.
Valentino has always been superb in this area over the years. Good to see as I saw on Sunday,he can still squash it hard.
Casey raises the bar another notch and George duly joins the party.
In all fairness,I'd like to see this topic and stats revisited post the Aragon round.
Alex Barros must be smiling as he reads this. If titles were decided by late braker's, he would have plenty of 'em to laugh about !!!

Yes, fan, can't do it without electronics.
See, there is a little radar mounted into his helmet, data from there combined with GPS information allows the mainframe computer in Honda headquarters compute the latest possible breaking point. This result is then relayed over a satellite to Stoner's bike. There is a small mechanical boot built into back of his seat, this little boot kicks his a** when the time is right. Without these little gizmos Stoner would be dead last.

Glad you mentioned it before me!
But you forgot to mention the massive weight "advantage" that Stoner enjoys over the rest of the field!
This,coupled with his massive amount of TC and electronic gadgets allow him to be the latest braker on the grid.Obvious when you think about it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
