As for Stoner v Capirossi, has anyone considered that Stoner was a much better rider than Cap. While he won WCs in the minor classes and look close in 2006 (remember the year before Stoner came on) he has never really been an alien or a serious WC contender. That explains the 200 points. Also I watched a race from 2007 with Rossi and Stoner the commentators went on endlessly about the acceleration of the Duc over the Yam with Rossi getting close or passing on the bends simply to be nailed on the straight, but to fair the commentators agreed that patently obvious acceleration advantage was due to Stoner's innate ability over Rossi.
