stick an extra 10kilos on dani's on his back and make him wear 4in platform boots, see how fast he is then. The guy has an unfair advantage over normal size riders. Time a minimum rider and bike weight was introduced before we end up with midget racing

I'm a huge Rossi fan ... but I agree that Pedrosa has been the better racer for 2012! Lorenzo is leading with points and he is taking it easier to win the championship, but I don't like it when a racer "settles" for 2nd! Not when you do have the package to challenge for the top step. Your fight shouldn't be over till the chequred flag waves :)

re: "I have an advantage of 23 points. Of course if I crash in Australia the situation will change"

Didn't Jorge take himself out at Philip Island when he ran into the back of Nicky Hayden?

Turn 3 is indeed being named after Stoner.
For most of the season the corner will be closed as it will be a bit iffy round there and then once in a while it will be open and everyone will declare it the greatest corner in the world...then wonder why it got closed again.

Yes Jorge tagged Nicky in 2009, going into turn 1 on lap 1. Jorge ran wide, and went down hard. Nicky stood the bike up went miles off into the gravel trap, and rejoined half a lap down.

@dacron
Nope, Stoner got him on the run down to Honda corner on lap 2 (pedantic? yes)

Seems appropriate that the corner before Honda corner becomes Stoner corner (plus thats an awesome name for a corner)

6 wins each, 1 DNF each.......

Lorenzo 1st or 2nd in every race.

Pedrosa on fire at the moment.

...but can Casey win at P.I.?

Gonna be great to watch and as a Lorenzo fan.....I am going to be as nervous as hell! C'mon Jorge, bring it home.

I believe when it comes to drifting a rear end on a MotoGP bike at PI Casey on the Ducati will never be beaten he's good on the Honda but on the Ducati he was the greatest just ask Vale.
