I voted Dani top. I can't really disagree too much with those of the opinion that Jorge should have won, but this poll is based on opinion, not championship standings. In the first half of the season the Hondas had bad chatter issues with the new tire choice suddenly imposed. Stoner slightly outperformed Dani at first, but Casey is known for his ability and willingness to push a bike with handling issues. Nevertheless he did bin it a few times. Jorge made the most of the Yamaha's initial compatibility with the tires. After Germany Dani made hay, but with Casey sidelined for a few races and no depth of field (ie no other rider capable of beating Jorge except Casey) this made it impossible for Dani to make up more than 5 points per race. More than anything, I was impressed by Dani's ride at Valencia.
