"Pedrosa won 7 races, Stoner 4"
What? I think you'll find it was 5... that's only 1 less than the guy who won the championship & quite a few more than the 2 Rossi won when he was absolutely anihilated by his team mate in 2010... 150 points?
Lets examine this statement...
Casey Stoner was odds-on favourite to win 2012 but came 3rd and was already in 3rd place BEFORE he made a silly error 7 minutes into QP at Indy. Nobody else involved. Own Fault.
Who would you say was odds on favourite in 2010 having just won back to back championships with Yamaha... & crashed on what wasn't even a fast lap after what he said was his own error in allowing the tyres to cool because he didn't want to be followed... by a rookie? Own Fault.
Dani wiped his arse for him and the MOST embarassing thing is that Dani has never won a title. He was always 4th best alien and he beat Casey riding the same bike.
... in 2010...
JL wiped his arse for him and the MOST embarassing thing is that JL had never won a title. He'd only been in MotoGP for 2 years before he beat Rossi riding the same bike.
The way Dani finished the season, Stoner would have been beaten whether he'd banged himself up or not.
The way JL rode the whole season, Rossi would have been beaten whether he'd banged himself up or not.
This is why some of us think he's over rated.
Do you... indeed? Your statement, not mine.
