'I found that I could not control the bike on entry to some corners and that made me lose touch, especially in the closing laps' - Dani Pedrosa

It was clear to me that Dani was riding for the championship and not the race, he doesn't want to crash and risk anything.

If that had been Stoner, then he would have chased them down and if he crashed so be it but that is not Dani style, like Lorenzo last year Dani will pick his times, risky strategy but I think that's what he will do

Dani had satellite Honda pace today, a shame, but it is what it is, if Dani can't beat Marc on race pace at Germany its going to be a long long championship downwards, not because of a lack of effort from Dani.

btw, Dani was a second faster than Marc at Barcelona, and still couldnt manage the race pace, it's not about speed, its about setup, and there is one guy who is consistently getting the better end of it, and his name is Marc, the #1 rider at Repsol Honda, not because the commentators like to pretend hes better than Dani, but because Dorna are counting on irrational people to glom on to Marc like they did Rossi, and unfortunately, Marc does not have that kind of personality or charisma, and the guys who write the script for this class of racing are very pooor writers, because they have very little respect for the fans.

Its look like something hapen with Pedrosa from begining of this race. I saw something deferent with him when camera shoot him at padoct and befoter race start. Its look like Dani don't like with something. Something wrote on the script.

@ pcxmac:

why don't you stop going on about your ridiculous conspiracy theories and go get some help, and buy a tinfoil hat while your at it! If you knew anything about motogp, you would know one of Pedrosa's weaknesses is riding on worn tires. That and low grip conditions. It always has been. He is better at it now than he was earlier in his career, but it's still there. Marquez on the other hand is known to be strong when the tires go off from his pre-Motogp days. He can handle a sliding bike like the best of them....

low grip conditions? like at Sepang last year? lolz. ...

Or Valencia? Or LeMans this year?

... and then you have all the people barking about how much better Marc is with his style for maintaining corner speed, where as if I rememeber it was Dani showing Casey how to do it around Sachsenring.

Maybe you 'guys' (people who don't question authority) dont know what you are talking about and like to feel solace in repeating what commentators (preachers of the GP religion) say?

Maybe if he got Puig out of his face before the race he may be able to relax. The guy is so wound up about Dani becoming a wc that he stresses him rather than helping him. Keep him off the grid before the race starts for the next couple of races and see how he goes then.

@ pcxmac:

You clearly don't have a clue what you are on about. When the tires go off, Pedrosa often in the past went backwards. Just cause he had a really good year last year doesn't change the fact. It's still a weakness of his even if it isn't as prominent as it used to be. He also used to be rubbish in the rain but eventually managed to improve his wet weather riding significantly.

Low grip conditions still affect him more than it does the other top riders(especially in the dry). That doesn't mean it is always 100% the case, but still he is weaker in those sort of conditions more often than other top riders are. Even Nakamoto himself at the end of last year said that Pedrosa is very sensitive to the slightest condition changes , and that it has often affected his riding and made him over cautious. If you had actually watched Motogp for the past 7 years you'd know this. You spout nothing but paranoid delusions and try to pass them off as fact.

Failing to muster up courage for some very bold moves might deny you an championship,, Dani by default avoids battle to the extend possible,, he either takes a thumping win or lose like something was seriously wrong,,

He is a great rider but he is too soft to force the result changes with battling,, don't be over cautious and respect your rivals a little bit lesser,,
