...and then half a win covers the next 8 riders.

Head & shoulders, etc.
Not to wish harm on Marc, but if he could just slip off gently without damaging himself in, say, one of the next two races that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you. :-)

I dont see anything going wrong for Marc at the moment. He can well and truly manage the situation well and if anything to go by the trend of previous years, he only gets better. quiet alarming for other manufacturers and challengers.

He has already got one hand on the title.

It is a long season, and he isn't infallible. If he loses the front on a wet track, has mechanical issues or gets caught up in some of the bad luck that has plagued his rivals, then the season could shift again. That being said, he is consistently fast, and his lead means that he can afford to take risks others may not.
