I would rather win a MotoGP Championship having to work hard for it, not be soo much better and faster than everyone else there’s no fun in that. I like a challenge, more glory winning it the hard way not the easy way. Lots of close wins rather than +5 seconds ahead wins, maybe that’s just me.

Odd thing to say. Winning is winning. Also, the word on the Honda is that it's no good in a battle this year, getting out on its own is where it needs to be.

Except when there's a dodgy points allocation (Russel Ingall, Rick Kelly supercars title seasons, or in nascar racing), I'm also a fan of the 2< win champion.

Emilio Alzamora is the king!

Ugh, I've always disliked Alzamora. He got lucky Melandri missed the first three rounds with injury. Then he sooked over Marco's race tactics in the last race (they were legit). Finally, he ended up the head of Marquez posse that prevented Stoner having two final rides to fill in for an injured Pedrosa. Emilio can get stuffed.

It's more exhilarating from an individual battle perspective but winning a premiership is no more satisfying whether it's tight or comfortable. Winning is winning (and crushing an opposition is usually more satisfying for an individual).
Well the 3 premiership’s we won I was happy we won them and yes one was a blow out the next one close and then another blow out but my favourite was 09’ because we had to fight till the end and it was more satisfying being only 12 points. The 07 was satisfying but because we hadn’t won for years even though it was one sided I just enjoyed it bc it was my first gf since being a cats supporter that we won, then 11’ is special because I went to that gf. So they were special but for different reasons.

Personally, Idk the status of "World Champion" doesn't count unless it's the big dogs in MotoGP.

How about when Nicky Hayden won with 2 wins? Four less than Rossi and Capirossi and Melndri won more.

Troy Bayliss competed in one race, and led more laps that season than Hayden!
