Pedrosa was an injury away from at least one motogp championship. Doesn't change the fact that he hasn't won one but he's got the wins and consistency to prove the caliber of rider he is and you can be sure the guys lining up next to him on the grid aren't thinking he's 2nd rate because he hasn't won a championship and nearly all of them can only wish they had the career he's had. Beyond all that the guy seems to be pretty decent dude. Just low key and is not out trying to be an attention whore or blaming others or making excuses when shit doesn't go right for him. You don't see people here posting shit about him the way the do about Stoner, CC or, JLo.
