Brian.....Unlike Dani, Marc was in the frame for a win at most races. The fact that, according to the Honda big cheese, he still had some tyre left with a couple of laps to go, must have helped his cause. It didn't seem quite such a benefit in the second half after the Yamahas got their act together.

Brian.....I thought the issues were Honda tyre longevity, and the improved results of Yamaha in the 2nd half of the season. I apologise...I didn't realise we were addressing who is the better rider out of Marquez and Rossi. Marc being afraid of Rossi came from you, not me. (I like the sledgehammer analogy though) Early season Marc 10 wins out of 10 races, late season 3 wins from 8 starts. I say the Yam improved, ( both Rossi & Jorge )...what's your reason ?

Good points Brian......I offered up the original comment as a talking point. Where the extra tyre at the end came from I have no idea and you may well be right in what you say. Dani, for whatever reason, doesn't come into it as he couldn't put himself into a position to take advantage of the tyre longevity. In several races he did, however did finish races very strongly. As for Marc's mistakes are you referring to him falling off, once when he was trying to stay ahead of Rossi, and another where he fell off trying to keep up with Rossi ? I don't know whether that was because Yamaha had sorted themselves out, or whether Marc did in fact make errors. I come down on the side of the former. Incidently, Marc would probably have won 10 in row anyway, but the HRC disclosure on tyre life sure helped him. That's all I'm saying. (would have helped Dovi & crazy too:) )
