How in the hell does a non-winning racer stay on a team (factory Honda for that matter), for that long blows my mind.
Anyone remember when he took out Nicky during the championship run? I guess I'm still bitter about it.
At least the Roman made things interesting when he wasn't winning championships.
I was kicking around the same thought. I came to the conclusion, he is still quicker than anyone not on a Yamaha factory bike. I do not know how accurate this idea is, since we have never seen Bradl or Bautista on the RC213V. I would guess if this wasn't the case though we would have seen one of them on the factory ride. One could theorize if Marquez and Lorenzo were absent, Pedrosa would win the Championship.
I do remember Pedrosa taking out Hayden.
