The Honda is a rocketship..fk all to do with Pedrosa, who is getting beat by his rookie team mate, and is the least accomplished of them all.
Pedrosa was fit last season and rode a bloody good second half of the season. Didn't do enough in the first half and if he had he'd have walked the title with Stoner out of the way, maybe would have won it with Stoner still in.
So he was fastest at Sepang and because MM has finished in front of him in Texas so far you have Pedrosa being beaten by his rookie team mate and rating him as the least accomplished, without having any idea of what their respective programs / approaches are. It's testing not qualifying. If you're saying Pedrosa's in trouble, where does that leave Rossi.
Give the bloke some credit, he beat Rossi in 2007 to finish 2nd in his second year and thereafter has had to contend with injuries until finally being injury free last year. He's comfortably beaten all team mates following his rookie year until Stoner arrived. MM has huge talent no doubt and watching who comes out on top of the two this year is one of the more interesting aspects of the season.
As for the video, you don't see the bikes going into the corner, don't know if the Yam was slow in, slow out, made a mistake or whatever, so how can you draw a conclusion from that one shot. Lorenzo is faster than Pedrosa isn't he, so how can that be, based upon your assessment of the Yam / Honda performance?
