FWIW, I saw a different Dani Pedrosa last year. Much more relaxed, much calmer, much more focused. Much more confident. His body language was different at the races, he stood much taller (insert joke here) than he had in previous years. Barring accident, he can win it all. Marquez is the wildcard here, he is a loose cannon, and fast enough to be wiping people out at the front.
I hope MM has learned from his first year in Moto@ that he needs to clm down a bit at the early races.
JLo is so consistent but would really like to see Dani win it this year as its probably his last chance. Even Nakamoto was overjoyed with Dani and his comments on how he was a new rider.
Here's to a safe and close racing season this year without any asterisks
