Back to top


Four races into the season with enforced DNF's from Stoner and Pedrosa.
Simmo needs to have a look at this. He's on a factory Honda,but stone cold last Honda outside of Toni.Now he is over one race win behind Dovi. Languishing behind Hiro and duking it out with Colin,Cal and Ben.
In spite of the hype and his ferocity on track, the stark facts make him look pretty average for a factory Honda rider thus far 2011.
A word for Karel Abraham. Thus far, a superb effort and keep it going.
Ducati need young blood desperately. Hector is also handily placed.
Pramac disaster continues.

...in the first years had almost no points....

Yamaha is going backwards a lot and if this could be a point against Lorenzo as a "developer" should also put a hype on him as a rider since he is still topping the standing with a clear inferior bike. And if you look at internal rannking (1st - 2nd rider points):

LLo +58
Sto +5
V46 +9
Aoy +14
Cal/Edw =

Still Yamaha has better come up with something because I don't think #1 skills are enough to make up for the bike (and not because of JLo lack of talent).
