@ Stavros, I pointed out that Pedrosa was on an upward curve prior to Stoner's accident, the fact that Stoner got injured at that time was not, in my opinion, a reason for him hitting peak form at this time. Surely the fact that Stoner won at Phillip Island whilst injured suggests that he wasn't handicapped by that point, and makes Dani's win in Valencia and to some extent Sepang all the more impressive? I never believed that Pedrosa was only held back by injury as things were, everything has to come together to win a title and it still hasn't over a whole year for Dani, I do think that Lorenzo deserved the title most this year, but pedrosa is unquestionably riding at his best ever level. As for Lorenzo's token resistance? Well aside from Brno I think it's fair to say he couldn't beat Dani anyway. I have no doubt he could have been closer, but equally I have no doubt that if he really felt he could have won those races then he would have raced a lot harder.
