Now for my two cents on this season... Next season... And my pipe dreams of how (in deluded world) it should be...

2012...
-Casey Stoner... A couple of very minor mistakes that cost him dearly, but pushing hard every single lap like he does on those bikes... Something's gotta give sooner or later...
But still the fastest dude out there... A real shame for us he's goin, but can't argue with his reason...

-Jorge Lorenzo... The absolute master class of motogp... This guy makes results go his way, by way of always being at the front, and making a very limited number of errors... He is the epitome of consistancy... And the reason Stoner had to push so hard that he made those mistakes...

-Dani Pedrosa... he is having his best season in motogp to date, but maybe by default... He is riding well, and seems to have stepped up another notch with Casey gone... But let's put Casey back in the mix, add in Rossi, and also Dovi ( on last years form, and bike)... And suddenly Dani wouldn't be lookin quite so good... But this is racing, and he's making a good fist of it...

-Ben Spies... Lost !!!, he has had so much bad luck, and made a few mistakes of his own too... The guy seems so dejected by the whole gp circus, his results and performances have shown nothing of his potential... Watching the live timing though, you see most races this year he does match Lorenzo's lap times... But only the middle part of the race, where Jorge does it from the first to last lap... Ben has the speed alright...

-Stephan Bradl... I recon he's awsome... First year on the bike, and finishing in front of alot guys with alot of experience... Quietly spoken, and polite, I hope he gets on the podium before the year is out... (Bradl will become my new Favorite rider after Casey leaves)...

-Dovi and Crutchlow... They're both doin everything they can on the satellite bike... Scoring poles and podiums, what else could you ask for..? Again like Dani, maybe it's due to the fact a few of the regulars aren't there... But you have to be there at the flag I guess, so good on em...

-Team Ducati... Hayden has been the standout here... Usually the fastest qualifier, and often running further up the field than his illustrious team mate... But bad luck, mistakes from pushing so hard, have not given him the results eigther... Rossi is just a damn good racer, and works hard to make results happen... But the gloss has certainly gone from this team for the moment... A works team that is use to running at the front, and winning a championship, is now a mid pack racer...

-Alvaro Bautista... Had a very slow year, a couple of good results, but not enough to keep his job for mine... Bad luck and other circumstances come into play for all the riders, at some piont it's gotta turn around... But haven't seen it yet...

-Karel Abraham... As above...

-Hector Barbera... As above...

-CRT... Espargaro and DePuniet have really been a class act here, there is a few ART bikes gettin around, but none close to the pace these guys are at... The rest, well I find it all a bit boring when they're so far apart, and so far off the pace... I know each rider is doing a great job with what they have, but it doesn't make for good viewing...
