Jorge Lorenzo wont be beating Dani much for the rest of his career. Mark my words. The only thing keeping Dani from beating Jorge is Bridgestone's weak sauce tires. Dani will keep beaing Lorenzo for the rest of the season, bar PI, unless Dani can really get the bike to turn well through that last sweeping turn up on to the straight.

re: "I don't think Dani will want a championship gifted to him like Stoners was in 2011 either."

dani shouldn't knock till he tries it...!? :) tell ya what, he should go ahead and WIN 2012 with help from stoner... and if a few weeks should pass, and he has an "attack of the conscience"...? i give him permission to swing by and drop the trophy off at dorna headquarters. no harm no foul. how's that...? :D

Its unlikely that stoner would help anyone,he is only in it for himself.
Because he is leaving at the end of the season he wont necessarily take orders from Honda either,what they gonna do,sack him.
He hasn't had the consistent pace of dani or Jorge since the tyre change anyway.the most he can do is spoil the fight for the championship.

I am with the camp that feels Stoner should lend a hand....even if that means simply placing his RCV in front of Lorenzo's M1 to hold him off. He knows that he is out of title contention, so why not help HONDA?

Yes, he should help. They are team-mates after all. What else would teammates be good for? I personally like the factor of team orders in racing. It adds a bit of a more 'dramatic' feeling to races, you know, like some conspiracy / spy hollywood movie :). And I like the following discussion about such move.

Not sure what the post was that got deleted but it wasnt written by me!

Back to the poll.No,i dont think Stoner should go out and artificially assist Pedro to lift the title.Noone wants to be remembered as the man who won the championship only because he was helped by his team mate.Pedro is quite capable of winning on his own.If he does go on the beat Lorenzo this season,he will want to be seen to be doing it off his own skill,not through outside assistance.
