"Jorge is playing his cards right in that he knows when he needs to play hard, take risks and win races."

Marc won't have it easy @ all..Dani will fight back n obviously Jorge the Champ will be right there as always..I think the next few races gonna be the best!!! Watch the space

Can't make my mid up whether this is mind games, or just plain honesty and level headedness. Either way, it affirms for me he is still, by far, the favourite.

Poor Dani. Thats a lot of pressure to take, but you can't take your eye off him. He'll always be fast. However, I still think Jorge is his main threat. However, JLO's going to have to "win it or bin it" a couple of times, therefore arguably handing the advantage back to Marquez.

Marquez is quite right but Pedrosa had to do the same last year, the year before, the year before that and the year before that and the year before that. Oooh wait Pedrosa isn't championship material in MotoGP. At least Dani has to win the championship next year otherwise it's bye bye Dani at Repsol Honda ( to be honest that should have happened a couple of years ago )

As a Pedrosa fan I'm finding this season hard going. He's correct in that this year his injury and rear tyre issues are affecting him more than others. at Silverstone he was losing soooo much ground on the exits to the straights - it was painful to watch - I've rarely seen it happen to #26 before. Hopefully the new rear tyre will help! Oh and to people like DrWho - may I remind you that his throttle stuck open, arguably costing him a WC, which was Hondas fault, as was the tyre warmer fiasco last year. Fact is, he's always fast, and has demanded lots of TV coverage for Honda & Repsol, due to him being in the top 3 for most races since he started. Let's remember he finished 2nd in his first race, and must've been on the podium for at least 70% of his race starts. Who else has had to beat team mates like Stoner, Marquez and (WC Year) Hayden? Answer = nobody. The lads done good IMHO, and silencing the haters with a WC trophy would please me more than him actually winning it!
