I accept that Pedrosa had little competition aside from Lorenzo, who was still trying to win judging by some of his post race body language. It was more an argument formed on the basis that Pedrosa was matching Stoner for points and beginning to match him for speed by the time Stoner had his accident, and seemed to be on an upward curve anyway, particularly after his relative struggle in the first four races.
I don't think Pedrosa would have won all those races with Stoner present, however I don't think Stoner would have outdone him either. The likely result would have been that they took points off each other and Lorenzo would have won the title. For the record, I think Lorenzo was number one this year despite Pedrosa's record, he blitzed the first six races and only made one big mistake when the championship was already won.
