The guy leading the championship is now all of a sudden “psychologically defeated”???
I´d say the trick is to push very hard, but stay on two wheels. That latter is more important than the number of race wins per year, and especially when you know there will be many tracks coming up, where you´ll have a good chance to win. Sure Assen turned out to be a disappointing weekend for DP, but it´s far from a catastrophe. As long as he keeps doing what he is doing, he will have a very good chance to lift the title. And remember that last year his later part of the season was even stronger than first part.
BTW, Assen is not one of the tracks where Pedrosa has been very strong in the past, either.
