"He chased over 40 points from mid-last year. I am sure 21 points is a lot closer to chase."

Much different situation this year. Last year Jorge never pushed to the limit after Misano because he knew 2nds were good enough for the title. So with Stoner injured Dani had nobody challenging him for wins. This year both Jorge and Marquez will be extremely hungry for wins, I wouldn't be surprised if Dani doesn't win another race. People who thought Dani had suddenly got stronger last year are in for a shock this year.

Machine, you are right. As I said, it will be tough to beat Marc, not impossible though. You saw how championship changed with an injury. Anything can happen, but I expect Dani to be more competitive as his favorite tracks are coming up.

Second vs Third in this race, could well be what keeps his challenge alive, can't help but think Jorge is a lil far back now, with the level of both Pedrosa and Marquez at the moment.

What people don't realise is Marc is still learning to ride the bike every track he goes to is his first time there on a MotoGP bike and he is still owning everyone.
If Marc does not win the championship this year and Dani manages to beat him what will happen next year when Marc knows the tracks and bike?
