Dani is a great rider no question. I just think that he is finding the limitations of his stature to be too much to overcome now. Just watch Stoner wrestling the Ducati around at PI. The physical strength and stamina to do so requires a certain amount of muscle mass. His weight advantage is huge from an acceleration, braking,and aerodynamic standpoint but he is just not physically able to throw the bike around like some of his normal sized competitors over race distance. He seems to fare best on flowing tracks without the hard transitions like Estoril. I predict his normal hole shot tomorrow only to be overhauled by Stoner and Lorenzo in short order.
