For a guy that has arguably had a tailor made bike for him (think '07-present) you just don't seem to have the necessary talent to beat better riders consistently. Maybe its mental or physical, but overall, you've had the benefit of the doubt for a long time. You're capable, but just not consistent. If you stay on the same team with Marquez and he beats you, you'll find yourself feeling like Rossi the last two years. Knowing that you're better than your performance, but unable to prove it where it matters.

Don't have the necessary talents to beat better riders consistently? Not consistent enough? My a...

He may not be as good as Casey or Jorge, but he's arguably one of the three best riders out there. Some riders are praised to the skies for achieving a single podium, while Dani gets slagged off for a 2nd position. This was his 103rd podium and his 62nd in the premier class. Now imagine how many he could have had without all those injuries. And then you call him inconsistent?

I like Pedrosa, he is a very good rider, not as good as Stoner, Lorenzo, or Rossi was at his best but still very good and better than everyone else in the field. Having said that. I reckon he is in for a rough time next year, when Marquez steps up, and he finds that Marquez will straight go as fast or faster than him. I reckon Marquez really is that good.....

A giant of a man in a too small body. Being so light has advantages but today we perhaps saw it's disadvantages. Makes you wonder if handicapping would really be fair. Mind you he finished 2nd so not that tired.

I seem to remember Pedrosa being Hayden's teammate in 2006 the year that Hayden won championship. Count the years without a championship and he's on one of the top bikes. There are good riders coming through Motogp every year. Lucky that Stoner is leaving Honda this year otherwise I am sure Dani would have been paid off to provide Marquez with that ride.

Sorry Pedrosa you have not been able to string enough victories/points together and it's only a matter of time before Honda's patience will run out!
