He didn't look hungry for a win. MM was faster. Rossi and Crutchlow were faster. He damn near got beat by the one-armed man.
Perhaps if he was transfused with a pint of blood from Hector he could
get more fired up.
He's not defeated. He's got a set-up problem. He's fast until he's not. You can see his bike losing grip after the half. They all lose a little pace, but he drops of pretty fast in the middle. He has a hard time even holding his lines near the end. Maybe he has to modify his style a little to get more life out of that back tire.
