@ Fairplay & RG500. Yes, whether or not his personality and antics are popular outside Italy anyone with a brain (Brit or other) would admit that Max is a Class Act.
However - you are overlooking a couple of relevant points, such as..
* the fact that TS made few errors & took a Kawasaki to Poles & Podiums like no-one has managed for a very long time.
* Max was on the Aprilia - a fully developed bike originally designed as a MotoGP bike - would he have taken the title if he was on a Kawasaki?
* Max dropped the ball and made rider errors that nearly threw away his WC (Melandri managed to it away) - Sykes brought the Kwak home always - it took a machine failure or a Badovini for Tom to DNF.
I didn't vote, but I'm happy to see Sykes get the kudos for a phenomenal effort.
