I hope that Dani doesnt turn out to be one of those sportsmen who never get to the top of the tree but always seem to be there or there abouts.The bridesmaid never the bride if you know what i mean.Like Ivan Lendl.Won everything there was to win in his sport except Wimbledon,THE title he most craved.There are several other sportsmen i could name but you get the idea.I just hope Dani gets his name on the Motogp trophy at least once in his career.
