Although I agree with you, my question is how much was Dani's heart in it this year after missing 4 races?
Prior to Le Mans, Pedro had 61pts and Stoner had 41pts - admittedly Stoner was wiped out in Jerez, but Pedro would have had a lot more to go for then than he did after missing 4 races. Would he risk anything on a season that won't be fruitful anyway?

- Geoff Duke (Gilera and Norton)
- Giacomo Agostini (MV Agusta and Yamaha)
- Eddie Lawson (Honda and Yamaha)
- Valentino Rossi (Honda and Yamaha)
- Casey Stoner (Ducati and Honda)
The answer therefore is: NOBODY has ever won WC's on 3 different brands. This would be a first!

I think he will stay while ever he thinks he has a chance of winning the WC especially if he is able to dictate how much of his personal time he has to invest in it i.e. minimal media commitments.
