@ M1M I would say though that JL getting several 2nds behind DP in the 2nd half of the WC (when it was effectively a 2-horse race between JL & DP except for PI when DP fell off going for broke) isn't the same achievement as it would be in a more competitive environment. DP had to push every single race in the 2nd half to claw back a points deficit so was under greater pressure all season. Jorge though had earned his points cushion in the first place tho granted. JL's crash at Valencia was I think a result of it being no WC to protect & a desperate desire to win a race & beat Dani before the off-season (& he overcooked it). I wouldn't have objected to either JL or DP getting the No1 vote - tbh its a very close call in my book.
