Dani started injured last year and was most of the year and was beaten by Stoner. This year both riders started the season fit guess who got his **** kicked this year and even crashed out this year yep you guessed Casey Moaner.

At least the old man Rossi can defend a title not like one shot crasher Stoner

Both Dani and Jorge have done enough this year to deserve their shot at the Title.
As regards the heading...This is a prototype class and only 2 riders have a chance of a win. A waste of everyone's time, money, and effort. What is the answer? In my view there isn't one. How can you balance the task of keeping MotoGP faster than WSBK and yet slow them down in order to keep the costs down? Constant rule changes don't work, it drives away Manufacturers, and Casey Stoner. As it is the bikes are too powerful for the laws of physics, carbon brakes are no longer effective, Electronics are needed to control the engine, and different tyres are needed for every track (even stupid asymmetric ones for goodness sake)

Stick them all on road tyres, that will control costs.

PS. Ease up Casey fans, I haven't counted him as he is retiring, so only 2 winners.

Pedrosa's right and I also think it is a pity. Back then there where 4 guys above all others it seemed than the rest where not that far away from the top. Maybe my memory is not what it used to be.

Anyway, with only 2 guys capable of fighting for the victory and with such a lead as Lorenzo has, it means that noone will be fighting for victory as Lorenzo will be content with a safe second place letting Pedrosa to win easily.

I am surprised, though, that noone comes close to those two. For current standars, Bautista and Crutchlow were not that far off today, but what that means is that they weren't some 10 or 15 seconds from the top. Are Lorenzo and Pedrosa that much better than all the rest (I am not counting Stoner or Rossi, because it is difficult to quantify their current value of today)? If not, what is the reason?
