re: "in one of the three laps before the end I made a mistake, lost around 1.5 seconds"

daniel ramal, the mistake you made didn't happen 3 laps from the end. i tell you with certainty, the mistake occured in the pits when you/someone fitted that white stripe. i smell a setup. there's no way on god's green i would've sent you out on anything other than what marquez was running. ffs you've run hard compounds on ice skating rinks (indy) and won...!?!? and we're doing it well before anybody knew from MM93. some of us not only pay attention, but attention to detail. rig alert...!!!

Dani already said his rear tyre choice was correct and he always looks to use a softer compound if he thinks it will last the race.
Remember it wasnt a soft it was a medium he used and lots of riders went with the same tyre. Also reported post race MM tyre looked much more worn up than Danis.

Did think there would be people thinking i was wrong about pedrosa, yes he has been top Honda in some years but is that a surprise ? The Honda has been developed by him and FOR him so should suit him best. Comments about 2nd half of last year are only half right . A good half a season Will not win a championship! And pedrosa has never managed to piece together a whole one. Lorenzo put it all together, won at tracks that suited the Yam and limited losses at rest. Pedrosa is fast but he has had enough chances .

Pedrosa is going to end up being the Dan Marino (NFL) of Moto GP. Lot's of wins, close to sealing the deal, but in the end, "no dice"... Probably never going to win the Championship.
