nope, unless Dani's rear tire starts magically working and Dani+Jorge dont have issues with their front tire I dont see anything changing. It's a one horse race this year with the one horse just hanging behind to keep up appearances, in economics you might refer to this as a 'distortion' courtesy of the controlling interests in MotoGP.

Enjoy the show, cause thats all it is this year. At least last year Dani found new life (right after Casey exited competition???) and managed to be competitive for the second half of the year, looks like the weather forcast will be pretty lame for the next few years. I wonder what P. Espargaro is thinking about how little Dani and Jorge can do to Marquez, because I can't believe the other riders don't see how much disparity in grip there is for the two Repsol riders.

Well,we will soon see where Marc is in terms of race ability when Jorge and Dani are back to fighting fitness.
My guess is,he will be just as much of a title contender as he is now!
The title is by no means a forgone conclusion just yet though.
Jorge and Dani and Val will do all they can to put the boot in to Marcs plans of World domination!
Lets hope we get an exciting second half to the season.without injury.

No Balance / Vilas, he doesn't see Rossi as a threat.
The battle is between MM, Pedrosa and Lorenzo.
If conditions / injuries conspire in his favour then Rossi is capable of still achieving the odd win or podium but he is no longer an alien. If all are fit then it is between the three Spaniards whether we like it or not.

Its looking more and more that the main threat to Marquez lifting the WC Trophy is Marquez himself.

The kid has got everything in his corner and going his way. best bike, best team, best budget, best data, best technicians, best gearbox - everything.

And of course - best 'support' (which can and does mean any number of things - a Rookie WC is good for Dorna, good for ratings, and good for Honda's claim to build the best - so good a rookie can win straight out of the box etc.).

Unless he crashes and hurts himself badly enough to rule himself out, I think MM of WC is looking more and more like a done deal.

I dunno if pcxmac IS right about the tyres... but MM sure as hell looks to be more comfortable and have more grip than Dani & lap time in his pocket.

Now reminds me of how much talent Stoner has blistering on that Honda while Dani + Dovi couldnt play catch. All of sudden Dani is competitive and a rookie on top of the foodchain. Im guessing on his wildcard appearance in Phillip island, CS will kick MMS butt.

(im a 46er don't worry boys, just acknowledging the talent of the moaner for the first time).

Sir dont forget that Rossi can also crash and get injure is also human, but if that dont happen it must mean somethingh.. Riders need a bit of luck 4sure but riding motorcycles is not luck if riders know exacly what they are doing where is the limit ETC they will avoid crash, Everyone of then are on the same pressure.. at the end we will see who is the best!!

For those who question the rear grip between MM and DP remember they have completely different riding styles, which accounts for rear grip issue.

Rossi never saw MM as a threat, Rossi knows he is on his way out, and is really looking to pass the torch along.

Also, lets not forget his first win he was dealing with a fully fit DP and JLo in Austin, though it was a track that favored the Hondas.

And enough of the if, would, and could haves, all that matters is who crosses the line first on Sunday.

you are right Jixr, Marquez is much harder on his rear tires, yet he makes them last so much longer, I wonder how that is.

Marquez also has no idea why Dani and Jorge were complaining about their front tires being dangerous. Lolz. He just rides to the limit :)

In the end it only matters how many people you can get to swallow the sales pitches and lies taste better than reality.

* and oh yeah, there was only really one person who had a shot at Marc last race, and he looked to be achieving the same levels of grip if you were paying attention, he finished 2nd.
