I'm glad we are not seeing, yet, Honda with a big advantage as I was beginning to think they might have by this time.
Yeah, by the same token we can say that if Vale didn't break his leg in 2010, Jorge would not have won the WC.

Tsk, tsk, asterisks

This is racing, whoever gets the to the flag first wins.
