Ah ! The what if's. Yamaha 2nd and 5th. Given their lack of title sponsorship,the gloom and doom of an injury plagued season, you have to hand it to Yamaha/ Jarvis' canny head and the application of their riders in Lorenzo and Spies 2011. Against a rampant Repsol/HRC/Stoner Blitzkrieg...it was a remarkable defense by Yamaha.
Inevitably this seasons rankings will put the Ducati/Rossi/Hayden marriage under the microscope. Ducati's worst achievement since the 990 era. 7th and 8th and litttle to pick between the two factory riders in the points tally.
On a lighter note,congrats to Crutchlow on his 4th place today and rookie award. Abraham has against all odds proven to be a credit to the game in his rookie season. Well done to both of them.

Nothwithstanding the prolonged absences of the two Spanish Aliens, Dovi on the same machine is a good benchmark for Stoner's season. 1 x DNF each, although Stoner's was blameless, and a 122 point gap. A stunning season from the Aussie wizard left them all gasping.
