For me the only statistic that matters is in the 7 years Stoner raced in MotoGP he won 38 races, nobody else won that many. Did he have great machinery? Of course he did, you don't win as many races as he did with crap bikes.
Why did nobody else have as much success as he did with Ducati in 2007-2010? Simple, because they didn't try hard enough. Same goes with the Rossis teammates at Yamaha from 2004-2007, they didn't try as hard as he did, he just like Stoner put his **** on the line more and got better results than his teammates.
That's the difference between good riders and great riders, great riders take it to the edge(sometimes beyond) and none was greater than Mike Hailwood
