Ifs and buts Livio, everyone of the contenders lost big chunks of points for one reason or another. Marquez tossed away a probable 40 -45 points, with 25 of that being lost on sheer stupidity. Would you rather be unlucky or stupid. I should say Marquez's team is stupid, i seriously doubt riders are taking the time to count laps. Still cant believe a head didnt roll over that one.

@ Brain.

True MM also had bad luck as did JLo.

However Suppo was right about luck playing a major part in some championships Nicky Hayden's comes to mind.

Now so as not to make me anti American let's look at Randy Mamola 13 wins 57 podiums out of 151 starts WCs 0.Runner up twice
Nicky Hayden 3 wins 27 podiums out of 185 starts.
WCs 1

Now tell me who's CV looks the best.

Luck plays a part but this season was mostly fair,, top4 all factory riders had their own bad luck atleast twice throughout the season... Dani is never gonna win championship in his carrier... Next year battles are going to get even tougher with production riders coming,, if vale can modify his M1 to his liking then he will improve aswell,, Dani has the history of failing in tough battles and against Rossi he easily gives up whenever Rossi runs with Dani's pace...
