hes injury free and Bridgestone havent pushed it in favor of Yamaha.

Honda has had the best bike since probably 2007. Casey, Bridgestone, Simoncelli and a errant throttle being Dani's biggest obstacles since.

It remains to be seen if Bridgestone have taken some longjevity out of the tires to help the 'slower' riders out a bit (bar Ducati of course.)

Dani has always been a great rider. Stoner has nothing to do with this. He was a triple world champion against Stoner in the lower classes. Problem with Dani IMO is his inability to rise to a challenge. Unless he gets away at the front he has issues. He struggles to pass fast riders when at the limit. He rides very much like another hero of mine Max Biaggi. Blistering fast as long as long as nobody gives them too much grief. Unfortunately a certain Valentino Rossi is the master challenger and only gives these guys fits as they try and compete at his level.(ask Stoner)

I really do want to see Pedrosa win a MotoGP title but he'll probably need to wait until Rossi and Lorenzo retire. Won't be long for Lorenzo, his days are numbered with Rossi back in the mix. The fragile Stoner couldn't leave fast enough, lol.

if the tires dont change significantly from last year Dani will easily dispatch both Jorge and Rossi. Rossi is typically a lot better in Sepang than Jorge, and his lack of pace at Sepang is really 'showing' of whats to come.

Dani's biggest threats are Repsol's interests in Marc and Bridgestone, Honda I assume are still happy with him and will help him as long as their financial issues dont give way to interests (Repsol/Dorna) favoring riders like Marc. Not really sure how happy Repsol/Dorna would be if Dani owned Marc his first two years.

dani is quickest man on the grid most of the time but dont think he can handle the pressure he has had the pace from 06 when he was a rookie to be a champ but cracks under pressure take philip island he could of finished second easily if not won the race but he new it was the decider and made a mistake that cost him the championship

Come on man. We all know the Ducati sucks. Let's just leave it alone. Marquez, Lorenzo, Pedrosa, and just about anybody else would have suffered the same plight. Let's move on!
