Regardless, Dani is clearly not the caliber of rider as say Stoner, Rossi and Lorenzo. He's late for school every day but always has an excuse why it's not his fault. No one on the grid has a better bike or more number 1 rider support and loyalty from his team, not to mention this is the top team in the world... He only wins when he's clearly the fastest guy that weekend, he never "over achieves" and wins races when he has to battle it out bar to bar or fight with some difficult situation, say a poor qualifying result or a bad start or penalty. Nicky Hayden was forced out of Honda (after winning world championship in spite of Dani's clumsiness...) by Dani & Piug because of Pedrosa's insecurities. Hayden was never clearly outperformed until he was forced to use sub par tires to his Spanish teammate during the "wall" fiasco. It's my opinion that Hayden is a MUCH underrated rider, however staying on point I'd say Pedrosa is a much overrated rider by the same token. There's a clear con

@ Nuvolariii.....

".....Dani is clearly not the caliber of rider as say Stoner, Rossi and Lorenzo....."

This made me think so I checked it out.
In the 6 years that he has competed against Rossi and Stoner he finished the year ahead of Casey 3 times, and Rossi 4 times !!!
In the 5 years that he has competed against Lorenzo he finished the year ahead of him just once.
Clearly Jorge has the best stats of all of them.

Considering Dani's injuries during this time he has performed magnificently.

Dovi is my man but I really would like Pedro to get the Title this year.
