Honda not planning Dani Pedrosa axe

Honda has denied 2014 will be Dani Pedrosa’s farewell season as a factory HRC rider after rookie teammate Marc Marquez wrapped up a historic MotoGP world title last season.

Mmmmm PC...

and with JL being the absolute finished article of the complete motorbike racer... and MM defying and overcoming the natural laws governing of what can be done on a bike ;)) He isn't gonna find that luck any easier to come by... although personally I still think he is worth a bet for 2014, but mainly for the better odds you would get with him.

Always the victim..

..is Pugwash, bless his little cotton socks.

8 years and counting on a Factory Honda..treading water.

Hayden, Stoner, Marquez..all world Champs.

Who is faster than him?

JL, MM and ??? Maybe a change of scenery is what he needs... I would like to see him on a factory Yam to see how his style would suit that bike... but it's undoubtedly true that he has been beaten by teammates to the title three too many times.

I don't care..

..how fast the bike makes him look. Pedrosa's time's up. It's getting embarrassing.

You could say..

..5th alien elect, Speez, couldn't manage it in 2 years? 

Wonder what he'd go like on a Repsol?

Would Bautista or Bradl win a SBK title?

Would Marquez have won last season riding a Yamaha?

mmm..questions..
