Pedro rode that Honda like he stole it. Seriously, he looked like Casey sliding and manhandling that bike around the track. He may yet give George a run for the money, but only if Casey comes back and starts taking 2nd place points off of Lorenzo on a regular basis. And then Dani's big worry is that Casey might be taking 1st place points off of him. Maybe thats why he is riding like Stoner. Or maybe he's been watching Marquez ride in Moto2?
Anyone can bitch about Misano all they want, but most riders have at least one bad result a year. And GL had his too, so all else being equal, Lorenzo has simply had a better year than Dani. It's tough to beat a guy who is always on the top 2 steps of the podium.
