Talentfan.
I think thats about the size of it mate!

Hope Dani recovers soon.Those collar bones of his have taken one hell of a battering over the years.There cant be much left to fix.

This guy injures collar bone so often and more times than others but is still riding in the leading group consistently...

Other guy is breaking the same, gets a surgery and comebacks in just two days to finish with an heroic fifth...

Another guy faces a carrier threatening leg break in home surface, doctors predict atleast a 3-6 months time for full recovery, but completely stunned the world coming back in 40days walking with help of crutches...

These guys are all real heros no matter what kind of machinery advantage they get... All deserve to be champions,,

Lorenzo finished fourth after his "first" broken collarbone requiring surgery, then he races well on a track that seemed to suit the Hondas after his "second" break and "second" surgery. Dani races very well with a serious collarbone injury at Laguna. Who cares who finished ahead of the other? They were both competitive and both took chances with their long term health. Reading some of the idiotic comments on this thread, if a rider had to undergo an amputation some of the responses would claim an unfair weight advantage. Instead, why don't we just enjoy the golden age of MotoGP talent and hope the coming rules make things a little more competitive for more than the top five.

I didn't initially like Dani when he came along to MotoGP. But he seems like the most level headed of them all. I dislike Puig in his corner, but I think Dani would enjoy winning the title more than anyone else, and for that reason I hope it happens for him this year.
The pressure and expectation does seem to have got him to this point, though, and I'm sure it's now-or-never. It could be the first interesting title run-in since 2006.

Dani was fast and strong on the 2nd half circuits last year. So he shouldn't be written off.

But.....

1. Marquez has all the data for set-up that negates his 'rookie' disadvantage so he's a very strong challenger.

2. Honda might just choose to favour the new 'golden child' of MotoGP and the numbers might stack up that its in their interest to see to it that MM gets the title.

I hope Honda give Dani a fair shake and a clean run against Marc, who I think could be the only rival as Honda's advantage tells through the 2nd half and Yamaha fall away. He deserves nothing less.

@TalentFan don't be too hard on the muppets, most of them have only crashed a bike on Playstation!

I still think Dani's well placed this year, and he certainly deserves it. JLo is a long way from finished too. Props to Marc, but he faces some tough tests before the end of the season, like Indy.

I think its fair to say that Honda are going to lavish Marc with anything he needs to win the title now he has the advantage.
But people shouldnt be too hard on him.He cant help being supremely talented.He just happened to come along at the right time.Just as he was looking to come up from Moto2,Casey made his ride available!
Talk about the planets aligning!
Good luck to the kid i say.Make hay whilst the sun shines.
Its just a pity that the sport we love so much is never going to be fair.But we cant blame the riders for that.

He came along at the right time?
I don't know under which rock you were hiding, but they changed the rules so Marc could join the Repsol Honda team. Dorna did everything to get Marc in the Honda team, it was not that Marc was there on the right time, his passport has the right nationality.
