"Did Nicky not have the same opportunity to podium as well?"
He did, and if he hadn't made a slight mistake in the last laps to let Ben past then he might have finished 3rd. Of course all the credit was given to Ben for pressuring Nicky into a mistake. But at Laguna where it was Ben making the mistake and Nicky finishing ahead we just hear excuses from Ben's fans and the mysterious visor problem. Spies gave it everything at Laguna and came up short.
Ben's a good rider but to say he is a better rider than Nicky at this point based on a single podium at Silverstone is pure hype and conjecture. Nicky has the points on the board.
