Great ride by Pedrosa. But the one thing he has going for him is that he has scored points in every round this year, while his peers each have at least one DNF. Taking a page from Nicky Haydens book in that respect.

To finish first first you have to finish. I think if he keeps this form Dani would deserve his WC especially as we can never be sure how he was going as many were kiboshed by injury. However there have been ? marks due to his size. As Rossi demonstrated WC come from being consistent as well as fast.

I love to see the championship go to Dani. Hes a great rider and a decent guy. Though I like Jorge as well and he is also a great rider no doubt. I'd rather see Dani and Honda get it at this point. Yamaha has snakes loose in their organization. No more backing Yamaha. Go Dani!!

After the latest Yamaha Technical failure, I am now cheering for Dani or Casey. Sorry Jorge, I like you better than before, and respect your riding, but YFR has my blood boiling!

Dani is always a serious contender sans the injuries how many times he placed 2nd in championship.in 2010 the honda has the advantage against the yamaha over the last half of the season
he has the momentum before he got injured his bid got lost

It would be great to see him win this year, he fully deserves it and having 4 MotoGP champions on the same grid on 3 different bikes is better than having 3 on 2 bikes.

He fully deserves a MotoGP championship.

Well done Dani,
Its actually nice to see riders chatting and having a laff with each other heading up to the presentation area many years ago they all just ignored each other,
A lot more respect for each other these days

@Mick.
Me too I guess we'll just have to grin and bear it and I will accept
defeat as long as Casey still keeps up the pressure and not back off but I think Honda will be having a word in his shell like
ear.

Great race from Dani! good work all round from HRC wonder if Jorge is feeling a little pressure

He cant afford to finish second too often then again he wont want to crash.....
