You meet the most boring people on a honda. Mowing machines, chainsaws, outboards, food mixers, - throw enough money at it, probelm solved. Well done KC, only a few billiomn dollars amd your face is hehind some Japenae saccount's fisog. Hang your head in shame! Steve Bel to the rescue: Ouanquere!

Stoner only arrives first because they fix the results according to the alphabetical order of their countries of origin, or else it's because his bike is so good and has so much in terms of electronics that all he has to do is hang on and wait for the checkered flag or because he has the prettiest wife of the whole paddock, blah, blah, blah.

I, for one, having raced motorcycles, am happy to watch his bikes travel sideways around the corners, leaving a pair of lines behind, one light gray and one almost black, and laugh at the experts who talk about his traction control. In fact, he has the best traction control of the whole MotoGP paddock, it's called Stoner's Throttle Hand.

"It is a credit to our dedicated team who always strive to break boundaries and expand our engineering methods to create these wonderful bikes and to our TALENTED RIDERS with whom this feat would not have been possible" - seems honda has finally learnt the lesson of GOOD BIKE + GOOD RIDER = CHAMPIONSHIP SUCCESS. Good on em.

18 premier class championships and counting now Honda are on par with MV Agusta for the most premier class championships. GO the great company!! :)

oh and Honda hollow championship...get over it mate.

...but the riders on factory Hondas are NOT average riders. Dani 3x WC, Dovi 1x WC, Simo 1x WC.

@yzfstu
Puig would be pleased as he developed Casey in the early years. He handed out the racing numbers, note Dani is 26 and Casey is 27. This from their time racing in Spain.

Thats true Percentage. Alberto Puig was one of the first people to recognise Casey's talent and even gave his family a place to stay while they were roughing it in the early years.

Puig is entitled to take a tiny bit of credit for Casey's success but he won't. Like him or not, good on him for sticking 100% behing Dani. Any rider would appreciate their manager offering that much support & dedication.

Pernat: It should also be mentioned that if Stoner wasn't at Honda, Yamaha would be leading the championship. They could never manage a win in five years with Pedrosa.

Pretty much places Pedrosa where he belongs.
