Also 6 more seasons. However, even as a keen stoner fan I think it is unlikely in the extreme that he will end up with anything like this number of wins, so your point is valid [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img] .

Also, Vale's win total obviously comes at the expense of those who competed against him - there aren't that many wins left for others when he's winning all the races over an extended period of time. Whether you attribute that dominance solely to him rocking, partly to being on the dominant package for a significant portion of his career, or to everyone else sucking there haven't been many wins available for the taking during the motogp era.

I'm not much for guys bailing out of a bad situation that they freely chose to be in. What team will want him if he gives up after 3 races? Hayden has never given up and keeps plugging away under less than ideal circumstances. Every team has problems.

Marco should have gone to Suzuki [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif[/img] . He would have been far happier. Big mistake for him since Capper looks set for 2009.

unless your a lacky like edwards, its never good to join a team where your teammate is the current world champ.

unless you can beat your teammate or atleast be competitive you are making the worse move of your career

racesport.nl is saying melandri will have his last ride on the ducati in shanghai this weekend! and it'll also be the last ride for west with kawasaki, melandri is supposed to take his seat after this weekend?! they say that Alex Barros, Max Biaggi or Nicole Canepa is going take the seat in the Pramac ducati team.

More amazingly insightful facts from someone who spends too much time in the company of their own package.
