Must wait for the blessing of the king of Spain so that he can earn the title. Marquez will certainly be more blessing because it can carve more new records. In time ago sometimes very surprising when the title race between Pedrosa, Lorenzo and Stoner. Looks like a sense of nationhood more talk. But hopefully I strongly hope that Pedrosa could become world champion this year.

I would love to see Dani lift the title,even if it is only once.
But you have to wonder how long he is going to stay on a factory bike without bringing home the silverware.
At the end of the day,he is being paid to win the title,not just be a consistent point scorer.
If he doesnt win it this year i think he may never do it.Marc will only get stronger and stronger and harder for Dani to beat.
Plus Dani is so prone to injury.It has dogged his Motogp career.

re: "But you have to wonder how long he is going to stay on a factory bike without bringing home the silverware"

till he retires I reckon. most teams run 2 bikes, but at the end of the season, even after all these years, they still only crown 1 rider's championship.

many a lucrative career has been made of being a "bride's maid". dani's not the first and he sure as hell won't be the last. life's good.

sorry guys but this year is already over, its been over since at least mugello.

the only thing keeping Marc from winning it is him making even more mistakes or the guys at the top wanting Jorge to win an emotional comeback.

Dani's tire issues are going no where, and this class of racing will be following him in to the grave as soon as Dani retires, which hopefully is sooner rather than later, hes just diminishing himself being a whipping boy for Marc's credibility on the track.

MotoGP = Walking Dead, some people will persist in wanting to believe in the con that it is, but its so very obvious whose got the tires to make the race and who doesnt, and its not even a matter of setup or particular bike, cause Dani's rear tires just do not have the same level of grip as his teammates, and you do not need to be an expert to notice the clear lack of grip and suspension load on the tube.

You can still win it Dani, but just know, you were never really meant to amount to anything ... Dorna

Likeable yes, flamboyant no. Other than Rossi I'd like to see Pedrosa win a championship because he's been fighting for so long for one and has always had injuries or bad luck get in his way. He's very talented and fast and tough dealing with injuries. He's also quiet/reserved and works hard at getting the job done without fuss. If he can finally get a little luck his way he may have a chance eventhough Marquez, Lorenzo and Rossi won't make it easy.

Not sure I'm on-board with exactly the reasons, but in general I'm in agreement with pcxmac.

MotoGP is dead, or at least on life-support. I also agree that the probably outcome is a Marquez WC.

Why? Simply because the market research will tell them that this scenario works out well for the numbers - the bank balance of those in control will do best out of this outcome.

The fact that such things can be manipulated and determined away from the track, and without the riders being able to have a say with their riding on track in who wins - is WHY I agree that MotoGP is dead. Its dead simply because its not real Grand Prix Racing, but an imposter, a FAKE.

I'm done with MotoGP (but reserve the right to comment if I wish - you lot can make up your own minds). Don't say no-one ever told you though!

"You can see the trend of this World Championship, that he who makes fewest mistakes gets the most points" - Dani Pedrosa.
No $hit, Sherlock !
I should keep that little gem of wisdom to yourself, 'cos if the others find out then your tactical advatage could be lost and the whole game could change.
