No, Nostro, No!
Most of what you have written below is fair and I agrre with it but, I'll have to take you to task a little on a couple of your comments.
VR's competition: To name a few of them, and they are / were on the top of their game at the time, Capirossi, Biaggi, Lorenzo, Hayden, Pedrosa, Stoner, Melandri, Checa, in the more recent years, Gibernou (the feckwit) earlier on, Kenny Roberts, so to say he had weak competition is not right.
Also, I watched it as it happened in front of me, MM at Silverstone last year come off big style and his bike slammed into Cal Crutchlow's bike whilst the marshalls ran off with Cal to safety. I can think of a few more occasions of his highsides etc, but you are right, it's not often- he is a special kid. As Julian Ryder said reading out somebody's tweet during the race, if the others are The Aliens he is The Predator!
