Why are so many people blind to the FACT that Dani Pedrose is far faster than DOVI, he has more race wins and podiums in every season they have been team mates. Add this to the fact tahat Dani has been out for all these seasons it is obvious that Dovi has had to go. If Dani stayed injury free he could challenge for the title, DOVI will never finish above 3rd, and that never happen.

To many people on this site that NOTHING about MOTOGP or motorcycling

Yamaha, please give Dovi a factory bike so he can wipe the smile off Lorenzo's face. I have no doubt that Dovi could get respectable results against J-Lo on the same equipment...

People seem to forget that in 250 on that underpowered - however very good handling - Honda he took it to Lorenzo, who rode the stronger factory Aprilia back then. I also think that he is not that fast as Stoner, but for judging his real speed, next year will be pretty good if Yamaha keeps getting the privateer bikes close to the factory ones. Or if he gets a Tech3-colored factory bike.
As a remark, if Puig controlles/ed HRC what do you think how much resources Dovi would get? No matter of a factory bike, the slightest disadvantages would mean he is out of contention for the win. We do not know that, not even suspect...but we know how politics work and till a spanish company is a major sponsor at the factory Honda team which runs a spanish rider, not to mention that a manager of this rider is the boss at that team...well, we suspect who gets the good stuff. The Stoner-Suppo pair is another story cause Stoner is actually better than Pedrosa and they seem to deliver the crown. While Dovi

@ John who wrote (about Dovi): "...if he was delivering the goods (that is winning races and titles) Honda would be doing everything to keep him on..."

So why was Pedrosa retained by Honda for so long (0 championships and 2 wins per year)?

Gee, I guess Pedrosa being "far faster" is why he has won so many more championships than Dovi.

why are so many people blind to the FACT that Dani Pedrosa is SPANISH same as the main sponsor and MotoGp visits the peninsula a whopping 5x.

Regarding Dovi on the underpowered 250 Honda...

Dani won the previous 2 championships on it against aprilias! When jorge got on the aprilia it seemed faster than a honda because he's a better rider than dovi
