One of the most tallented yes, (lets not disrespect the ones before and the ones to come).

But also one of the most arrogant and insecure sorry to say yes. All the don't follow me and I am not testing and in track fighting. Remember its been almost five years since any rider has fysically attacked another in motogp.

So lets remember all.

Danis was always was #1 at repsol but last year Casey showed him how to ride,Danis performance on a GP bike this year was his best ever,he learned.Caseys 3rd in the pole is correct for me and I'm sure even if he hadn't lost races he still wouldn't have beaten Dani.The 2 Honda boys were up ainst it this year after the winter testing proved the Yammy to be a cracker of a package but watch out Yorgi next year has Dani aint gonna be starting on the back foot.

Tight lines to Casey and thanx for the entertainment:) :) :)

Casey did well and will be missed
Dani, lets see if he can continue, as they say, one swallow does not make a summer
Lorenzo should do well next year and especially since he has Side Show Val along for the ride.

BTW Side Show Val better perform or Dave, Villas and young Mr LC (I hate Stoner) Tanner will all be crying for months on end.

Maybe its time to repeat 2010 move the Ducati with their Side Show Val will show the world how good the Ducati is and he'll do it in 80 secs

Bring on 2013

@Green Monster "When Stoner signed for Ducati each year he won less races 2007 - 10, 2008 - 6, 2009 - 4, 2010 - 3. People hail him as the Ducati tamer, but the figures indicate he actually made the bike worse."

People also seem to conveniently forget the fact that Rossi rode the Ducati in 2011 with as fast or faster lap times than Casey did in 2010 on many, if not most tracks. 2012 is not comparable due to the change in displacement.

EX: Stoner was a top race lap of 1'35.577 while Rossi was a 1'34.273 at Le Mans or Stoner with 1'50.996 and Rossi with 1'49.301 at Mugello

Lorenzo #2
Pedrosa #1, he truly deserves it. He got rid of the wet riding ghosts, took racing face to face on a few ocassions. Even though he was on the best motorcycle ever, he went from a shy and too conservative rider to a very intelligent racer.

Honda have a problem. This season they gifted the Title to Yamaha because their two riders took points off of each other. As I feared when you have two number ones in one team.
Next season Yamaha are going to have the same problem.

@ Codger

Dani has yet to prove to me (personal opinion) he is a "number 1" rider, as you put it. (Remembering Phillip island - that was no #1 ride from Dani)

It was up to Dani to beat Casey for the points, it was not Casey's job to give them to Dani. Although that seems to be popular opinion from Pedrosa fans here at crash.
