Dream on. He's the master of consistency, but still no alien.

You'll have to take a little bit of risks to be an alien and that will affect your consistency.

IMO this scenario is possible only if Lorenzo breaks something. It's more probable to loose the 2nd to Pedrosa.

I agreed with you RawDawg...I watched Dovi pretty close in the turns when Spies caught him, spies was way over off the bike-knee to the track and Dovi was much more upright-knee not even touching in most curves.He is a very solid rider to be sure, but needs to let it hang out more or he will never be a top dawg.mho

from his statements, it seems he is always content with where he is. this is the first time he has even mentioned trying to cross lorenzo...

seeing his consistency, the fact that he doesnt get any wins shows the real story....

Dovisioso-a man being carried by his machinery.

Its surprising really, he had an amazing season on a non works bike and hasnt done much since he got the factory bike.

I like the Dovi, he seems like a nice guy, but this is exactly his problem... Aiming for second seems like his mentality...

On a factory Honda, he is the third best pilot, that is clear.

His only real option is to go with another manufacturer to see if a different technology suits him better. He is not going to get any better on that Honda, if Stoner and Pedrosa are still riding one, and Lorenzo on a Yamaha, beating him round after round... Spies, though not quite in the same range of points, still seems to have him weighed and measured...

i feel kind of bad for this guy. he is like the last kid always chosen in a pick-up game of basketball. he's ok and you will take him if you have to.
he doesn't measure up and defintely is not an "alien".
