Dani's had so many chances to win the title while he's been in MotoGp. Since he's been in the class we've had Rossi, Stoner, Lorenzo and Dani's team-mate, Hayden, all winning the championship.  It is'nt as though one particular rider/ team combo have dominated in the past 5/6yrs.

Dani is blindingly fast but as his record show's, also too frail. Honda must surely be fed up with Dani, what major corp. would'nt be? Would Honda lose their main sponsor if they replace him? Could they find another?  And as for this latest 'handshakes at dawn' incident, maybe Dani is trying to make it a bigger deal than what it really is to aide his 'Look boss, this REALLY could've been my year if only Simo'................blah blah. Just a thought.

He has never gone through a season without injury even though the bike is designed for him like I say his alien tag could be up for grabs.

I seem to remember Dani taking out his teammate Nicky Hayden when Nicky was leading the World Championship in a similar incident & I don't remember him getting punished...he does seem to have a selective memory, but good to see him back

latest from HRC

They are only keeping pedrosa on due to their new sponsor, yes folks calpol are taking over from repsol, pedrosa is the perfect rider for them, being a sickly whinning baby.

Good to see you back chris313nt. ??? Dani must of had a bump on the head in Lemans...... 2006 ambition definitely exceeded his ability to make that pass! I can understand his frustration but nothing can help or change his fate this year. I think he would be a worthy World Champ but I know he never will...... Just keep winning races Dani and keep the contenders honest.

Danny Pedrosa, if you want guarenteed safety in your races then get out of racing and go and try commentating.. Actually no, please dont try commentating.
