If Capirossi hadn't stacked courtesy of Gibernau, he might be leading the Championship. If Rossi hadn't had 3 DNFs, he'd have won the title by now. And it would be his 6th MotoGP title in a row not 5th. He would also enter the record books as being the only rider to win all 980cc MotoGP tiles on offer. You can bet he is also aiming to be the first to win a 800cc title. Hayden is only there because the others have given him points, not because he is the best.
