That is very interesting stuff. Thanks for sharing.

and a couple of more lessons in mortality will scrub a couple of tenths off him too.

Never really been a big Lorenzo fan, but his ability to run strings of inch-perfect laps with metronomic precision is incredible. Pedrosa is in that camp also, but he is just a hearth dog up against a pit-bull Lorenzo.

This year Marquez already has, among several other crashes, the fastest get-off in grand prix racing history under his belt (Mugello Friday), and that didn´t seem to slow him down that much at all – once again on Suday he was on his way to 2nd place in the race, when he binned it.

A serious injury might turn things around, and yes, you could argue, that he´s been lucky to avoid those (his young age might help there, he sort of bounces better than his older rivals). But crashing, even if it results in minor injuries, does not seem to affect him noticeably, he can still remain fully focussed for victory. He was this way in Moto2 and 125 as well.

I think Honda would suite Crutchlow riding style better.
For the same reason I think that Marquez on a Yamaha would not be that fast.

Finally, I really think that Pedrosa would have never left the 250cc category. He could have won championships year after year. He's incredibly fast, he has showed his ability to overtake in a "surgical" way, but he really cannot "wrestle" the MotoGP bike through some of those incredible manouvres that we have seen from Rossi, Lorenzo, Stoner and Marquez as well. I wonder how he would be on a Yamaha, though...

That´s just speculation. For all I know he could be faster on an M1, even though I doubt this, (because of the bike, not because of him). The reality right now is that MM has now surpassed almost everybody´s expectations on a Honda. Probably his own expectations as well.

Remember, just last year people were accusing him of cheating in Moto2. Of course he had to cheat in some way, there is just no way anyone could possibly have been so superior compared to everyone else... right?

68kg on a 240bhp bike.

Mebbe sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, especially if the rider is hurt.

I was at the GP yesterday and there was pretty much silence for Pedrosa, from the stands. For such a long-serving rider his lack of fans was spooky.

Well, they haven't had Spies racing for them this year either, so no change there...

I'm no expert on MotoGp that's for sure, but I do kinda keep up with it enough to see that riding a Ducati doesn't do much for one's career. Seems too bad that Spies is taking that route, though his career didn't ascend the way many thought it would in his first season. It's his best option? (Must be if he's taking it.)
