The point is that MM had 3 DNFs that were his fault, and Dovi had 1. They each had a DNF caused by factors beyond their control.
No,he had 2 that were his fault,and like I said had it not been for an engine failure the title run would have been anti climatic .

Marquez's two crashes early in the year came on the front tyre that was clearly very inconsistent. Marquez and Vinales off the top of my head crashed on the tyre and said there was no change in the data from the previous lap.
Sorry, I meant two.

Ultimately, Dovi knew that about the tyre and opted to be more cautious.

Exactly. I didn't want to throw around the B-word so early in the season. And will be trying not to waste time arguing with blind, cult-followers who use the yellow goggles to filter out reality. To be fair VR did go from Honda to Yamaha - but as has been pointed out ad nauseum - the competition at the time was not comparable to what we're seeing in the last five or six years, with no more SNSs.
