Well of course he is hoping for it but over race dstance he is consistantly slower than Casey. As they ride the same machinery no advantage there. Not sure what this article is saying because they all hope for an improvement next week. Unfortunately so does Casey.

He was pretty crushing there last year. I get the feeling it'll be closer than Indy at least.

Hmmmm, Pedrosa was VERY crushing at Indy last year too, and if you took away Stoner from this year Pedro would have replicated that form this year. In fact, Pedro was so strong at Indy last year that in another place someone said they would be astonished if Pedro didn't run and hide from everyone because he owns Indy!

Yeah but he was struggling in practice at Indy this year so until we see the practice at Misano it'll be difficult to say. He clearly wasn't as comfortable at Indy as last year so we'll wait and see.

I understand the repsol thing with li'l dani but c'mon...Dovi at least finishes his races. Pedrosa can't go the season without busting himself up. I'd prefer that he keep the bike on the road so we can have a closer title fight, but it never happens. Dovi meanwhile gets the shaft from Honda for performing under expectations...isn't he 3rd in the championship? What the hell did they expect from him? He wasn't going to beat Lorenzo and they put all of their faith into Stacey. Hope Dovi gets a good ride next year and makes the most of it.

Unless marquez comes to motogp next year,(i cant see where he would fit in)He will have to wait till 2013, and then he will have to ride a satelite bike,before he can ride a works bike 2014, so you have a while to wait before you you see him do that, its a big jump up in class from moto2 to the 1000cc, so his first year on the satelite bike, will have to be extroadinary, before he replaces dani. cheers

I think Dani works well as a teamate with Casey...If not for his injury and one low slide while leading and probably would have won, he would be right with Casey in points. Not sure how much Honda is looking at marq but he looks very promising and he is Spanish. What is the Japan flag and message? and what's with the umbrella person?
