@ Chris Zarate.

Clearly you have no idea what your talking about. When was I talking about people getting a tow. Actually watch a Moto gp race and you will discover Marc does not follow Dani, nor did stoner, nor did hayden. And even if they did they all have beaten Dani to world championships and race wins. Dani is a good rider I never said he wasn't buy he's had that bike for 8 years and not won a championship and 2 of his team mates have. That's the fact.

"Marc looks more like Elias than Stoner, but you guys can keep trying to associate the two names to make yourselves happier"

(EDIT - removed the original start to my post in response to changes in the post the post I'm responding to.)

Getting back to actually talking about what we're talking about... I'm not saying anything about MM looking like Stoner. I'm saying, in comparison to Dani, MM and Stoner get their ass and bodies off the bike more - and there's no disputing that, it is as plain as day. Dani keeps a good portion of his ass on the seat and leans his body out. MM and Stoner get more of their ass off the seat and lean out from there, leading to a more 'off the bike' position. What's arguable is whether this has any affect on rear tyre wear between MM/Stoner and Pedrosa. My opinion is that it does. You're opinion is that it doesn't. I can live with that. We're both just guestimating.

Again @ Nate44,

Getting a two or following someone doesn't mean to copy everything that he does because that is impossible because of different riding styles. You are the one who's not watching closely, following someones mean you can break just a little later than him, getting a bit of slipstream... those little bit can make atleast 2 to 3 tenths, and in Motogp that is great advantage. If you play racing games you would know that it's easier to follow someone than lead, that is common knowledge. I guess you are a Marquez fan and you don't want to listen. then so be it.

@Jimmy Jimmy,

Good point... But as I've remember, some commentator in Eurosport or maybe other TV Network commented that if you are going to compare Stoners riding style, then it's Dani's style is the closest rather than Crutchlow's. I think they said that when Cal is linked to Ducati and if he can ride it like Stoner. Many would not agree with that and oppose that theory but if you look closely, it made sense, specially the way they accelerate out of the corners. But in full lean, it's not really that visible cause of the physical limitations of Dani, he legs won't reach what other riders reach so fair play to him. And all the buzz is about Marc, let's not forget Dani got 2nd on his first race at Jerez in 2006 on a 990v5 monster, and even got a podium while badly injured in Japan that year.

Dani is stating that If marquez is good then his team have to do by themselves not by copying his telemetry data and bike set up.Has his previous team partner said dani copied their bike data's,the answer is No..but nicky hayden did copied dani's bike set up.So dani may not have won world championship but he never relied or copied others bikes data...Dani is true rider in all aspects..Dani may win or may not the championship but he is one of the best rider in all aspects.
