Ignoring the first post and in an effort to bring a bit of intelligence to things.

You are Honda team manager and have two places for next year, Stoner is one for certain but you have to pick between Pedrosa and Dovi for the other, which way do you go?

Snap decision says Dani but start to really think and it becomes less certain. Personally at the minute I would be genuinely 50/50, couldn't decide at all.

The tone of Dani's apology tends to indicate that his seat may not be as secure as we've come to expect.

This is not the first time Pedro has crashed out in the lead and it has kept him from achieving a consistency that would reward him with a championship. Some say this points to a deep lack of self confidence and it has happened to him enough to certainly entertain that possibility.

The thing I've noticed about Pedrosa since Stoner arrived was the added strain and pure exhaustion trying to keep up with him.

Same in the race, the pressure forced the mistake.

First thing he needs do as well is get rid of Puig as his manager. He berates him like a small child. The look of pure disgust on Puig when he fell said it all to me.

It would be a bit like a mad father going off at his son because he didn't win.

Well i too thought that Dani had pushed too early and crashed,but not according to Dani himself.He said he wasnt pushing too hard so i retract my statement from yesterday.It just seems that the front end washed out for some reason,an accident that can befall anyone at any time.It must have been very frustrating for him though after the solid performance he had been putting in all weekend.All that hard work for nothing.But there you go,thats racing for you.

How many of you can honestly say this was a surprise? It's become his trademark to crash out while in the lead or in a strong position to finish.

He can blame Simoncelli all he wants for his poor standing in this year's championship but Sic is a rookie and is supposed to be making errors, Dani has been in the premier class since 06 and shouldn't be making these types of mistakes so frequently.

Naz,Simo is in his 2nd full year in MotoGP so is NOT a rookie,but he is still making rookie mistakes.
Dani has already stated that he was not pushing too hard before the crash.Who are we to argue?
It was just a racing incident nothing more nothing less.How many riders have we seen lose the front end going into a bend like that?
There is not one single rider on the grid who has not had an identical crash at some time or another.It is just a pity it happened to Dani yesterday.
