If no collarbone breaks again or something like this then Dani will have the 3rd spot in the Championship. He's way faster than Dovi.

Dovi just can't match the Aliens. And it's a pity cause I really like this guy and he should raise his level a bit higher.

What have HRC done to Dovi that is so bad? He has been consistant but consistantly not fast. He can not compete with the aliens on competative machinery and would rely on those 4 guys being injured for most of the year to win a championship. Honda wants riders who can win races. Pedrosa has not won a championship but has stood on the top of the podium many times. That is what they want. A world championship is the holy grail but plan B is having a Honda win some races. Dovi can not do either and so he has to step aside.

@GJN

The problem some have with the HRC relationship with Dovi has nothing to do with Pedrosa.

You say Dovi can't win title or races but Simoncelli can't even get podiums and HRC falls over themselves for him. Marco hasn't done anything special and is barely top 10. At least Dovi finished 5th in the title his rookie year to EARN his factory ride.

Go Dovi,

Dani is about due for a rest he's got his 2 wins for the year to keep his record intact.

Dovi this year was showing steady improvement under Stoner, this is the guy HRC should of kept.

Repsol never started out with only Spanish riders and they'll have Marquez in 2013.

Would of been best to get rid of Puig now. One things for sure Pedrosa had won't to have a real big 7th year or he's toast.

Dovi's problem is that he's never going to be a title contender, he's just not fast enough. Pedrosa missed races with a busted collarbone and he's still going to beat Dovi. For Dovi to win a title Dani would have to break both collarbones (highly possible), Lorenzo break both his legs, Stoner would have to ned force fed a litre of extra-lactose milk before every race and Rossi..well he'll beat Rossi easily actually.
