I don't think he can catch Stoner who's 74 points ahead.

A lot can happen in half a season. If Stoner has to miss 2 or 3 races for some reason then Pedrosa could be back in the running. I'm not saying I think it'll happen, but anything's possible. Personally, I think Pedrosa is the greatest rider who'll never win a championship.

My thought too .. but then I read this:

Here's a number Dani Pedrosa probably would prefer to ignore. He earned the dubious distinction last Sunday of becoming the winningest premier-class rider in GP history without a world title at the top level. Pedrosa earned his 14th MotoGP victory at Sachsenring, breaking a tie with American Randy Mamola and the Mad Roman, Max Biaggi.

Keep in mind though that there's a lot more GPs per year now. In Mamola's day it was 10-12/year, not 18.

Pedrosa is also younger than Mamola was. He has a lot of years left.

Re: MotoGP 2011 - The Official Thread

Wow, B I G crash for Lorenzo at the end of FP3. Really bizarre, practice start after the session and as he went into turn five he had a massive highside. Apparently he had came out of the pits with only time for about a lap before the session ended so early guesses are a cold tire highside. After being on the ground for a bit he walked away (eventually) under his own power. Yet to be seen if he'll make QP, gotta be hurting...

Whether you like him or not, you have to admit, Jorge Lorenzo is a tough Mofo to put it on pole after that crash ..

Wasn't it him also (or was it Dovi, or someone else?) who ran a race a few years back with two broken ankles. Started something like 14th and either won or finished on the podium.
