Edit: ha, that said, here's one of Pedrosa doing a milder version (turn 2?): http://youtu.be/KXqe7x-_cyk?t=1m7s

Yea, I just meant MM is usually looser and a bit more on the edge when he puts down his fast laps whereas DP is a little more composed. It seems like DP needs to get closer to the edge more often.
