So far MM does seem to be getting the best of everything. Whether we like it or not, that translates into 'advantage'. Similarly, his position and teams have given MM huge political leverage - witness the fact that he's got away with some stuff that would have got many others much harsher penalties (e.g. Simoncelli RIP for one). Also he had clear advantages in Moto2 (a control class) - watching the races I feel sure that Espagaro was the better rider a lot of the time. So, regardless of his obvious talent, MM's performances will carry less weight and be less worthy than those of a guy who had to fight his way to the top without. Just like Vale. I think it would be better for the riders and the fans if blatant advantage and favouritism like this was not there.
