Dani is right when he says he had a good start but cannot afford to relax.But he has good memories of this track so should be feeling pretty comfortable at the top of the time sheets so far.Only 19 points behind Casey and Jorge.If he wins on Sunday and either Casey or Jorge have a DNF,it could open the championship up and upset a few apple carts.

Is there an official announcement that Dani is staying with Repsol Honda?

Good effort so far by Dani, but only first day of practice.

Hoping for a dry and safe race for all riders and classes.

Great job by Pedrosa in the dry and wet. Interesting to see Rossi up there in the wet but in the dry 11th is unacceptable. Let's hope he can improve and have a better result this race.

Just give the guy a break for heaven's sake. He is 19 points off the championship leader, he's always on the podium save Les Mans, He's doing a honest job. He has always beaten every one else on that bike except Stoner last season. Why not wait the end of the season and we can bash him to our fill when he doesn't deliver. There are another 10 races to go. He may lose or even win em all. Let the guy do his stuff come Sunday after the race we draw conclusions.

So much criticism for the little fellow for being quickest in the practice. Or just being on the podium and not winning races so far. It's not only the army of keyboard warriors against him, I have seen the whole media/press people dejecting the little Spaniard too. If Stoner or Lorenzo goes fastest, the media will go bonkers. If Dani is the's like just another day! Have to say, Dani has been the most understated and underrated rider of'em all. If he crashes and breaks his bones he's termed as fragile for the sport. But no one sees the determination when he comes back and fights with the best of racers, and beats the crap outta others. In his whole riding career, he has doubled the number of bones and joints in his body by falling over from every possible angle. I have seen people give-up bikes if they fracture their finger. To come-back and find the mojo again is much easier said than done. I'd give him the championship title just for that. If Rossi is the best racer, Sto

re: "Is there an official announcement that Dani is staying with Repsol Honda?"

better question is, does he even really need one...? he hasn't needed one for 6 years so hell, why start now...? like he would ever leave the repsol "hedge of protection" and test his mettle in the cold paddock that is MotoGP... as if.

this is a Pedrosa track. His fiercest competitors are sore of recent crashes. We do not need to wait until the end of the season. If he can't win here, now, then that will tell the story.

A comment said Pedrosa doesn't deserve the factory honda. Pedrosa is one of the consistently fastest riders in the MotoGP field. If he doesn't deserve a factory seat not many folks do. He seems to be a bit unlucky, and I suspect he may never win the MotoGP title. Having said that he is very talented, expremely fast and deserves the seat he has got.
