The main championship is the INDIVIDUAL Riders Championship, not the Team Championship.
The majority of PAYING spectators want to see a proper race, where ALL riders are trying their hardest, every time.
Team orders therefore deny these spectators what they are paying to see - that's called CHEATING.

Very likely Pedrosa will go all out on this last 4 races, he's got nothing to lose while Lorenzo will ride out conservatively, just fast enough for a 2nd, so Stoner CAN help by putting Lorenzo behind him and allowing Danny more points.Now it would get really interesting if Spies could put his bike ahead of Lorenzo but I don't think Yamaha would give Spies a fast bike, you can see clearly in Aragon that Lorenzo's bike was clearly faster in straight line than Spies.

I bet with everyone that you guys will never see Stoner saying something like this: I started the season as the No. 1 Honda Pilot and of course I made mistakes and lost my title bid, now is clear that i dont have any chance so i will not disrupt this oportunaty of Pedrosa, if its him my reach to help Pedrosa fighthing the diference to Lorenzo is what I'll do, We pilots have until the middle of the season to find out who has the best chance of winning the championship in this case was Pedrosa then my duty now is to help him, Pedrosa would had do the same for me if i was in front of him, on Honda we worck like this the Team is allways him 1 place thats why they pay us a lot of money.. Stoner will never say somethingh like this..eheheh

Doubt Casey will help Dani ,as he has been quoted recently in australia as saying no one has ever supported him including his homeland Australia. A little bitter is Casey

Those with short memories should remember last season, Dani never backed off, if you have ever competed at an elete level in any sport you want respect amongst your peers first and foremost, not to be gifted any win or title.

Casey is still under contract till the end of 2012. Nakamoto may well tell him to back off or else. Nothing Casey can do about it. I don't think Dani will want a championship gifted to him like Stoners was in 2011 either. But thats politics.
