If it had been a matter of giving Biaggi another slap in the face, I bet he would have won the championship on the Duc as well.

Steady Jorge?

Despite all the buzz about Pedrosa's late season charge and Stoner's PI dominance, I still can't help but be totally impressed with Lorenzo...a worthy world champion again, not due to anyone elses failure but his own impressive performance. When he doesn't win, a bad day is second place. Other's can win races on a given day but can be nowhere to be seen in the results the next round, while Jorge chalks up the points a la Eddie Lawson. Totally impressive. Rossi back on a Yamaha next year could make it interesting but if their last season together is any indication...super consistant Jorge is at least as fast and more likely to keep the rubber side down then the reasonably consistant Rossi. Pedrosa will have to stay healthy and learn to finish second or third occasionally. A third MotoGP championship for Lorenzo is not out of the question.

The old line that Eddie used to quote is true today more then ever...."to finish first you must first finish"!

There were of course numerous failures by others that contributed, but no-one can deny his consistent appearance on the podium.

Without diminishing his prodigious talent, it should be noted that the current formula absolutely rewards riders who can start near the front and robotically ride lap after lap within a couple of tenths. It also punishes any rider who deviates from that formula. Racing only statisticians can love.

Takes a hell of a man to be a robot. Like... an ALIEN?.

Rossi back in the front fight would mean Jorge & Dani will need to handle the dogfighting tactics more than they've had to do recently. In fact that is something I'd like to see them prove they can and will do, if required, and not start bitching about being raced unfairly. Dani has shown glimpses of this in -12, but out of the four "original" aliens, Rossi is the master of close combat. Be interesting to see, what MM might bring to that, he certainly does not mind if it gets close, and he has to fight.

Note, that I don't wish they'd ride dangerously, but I'd want to see some close racing up front in the closing laps.Does not happen too often in motogp these days.

Is the ECU also provided by HRC? If so and if I understood the article I suspect HRC would not be in a hurry to investigate.
