Most Underrated?

In your opinion which Motogp Or F1 Driver is the most Underrated?
Personally I think Alex Rins and Romain Grojean

Rins isn't underrated at all,

Rins isn't underrated at all, IMO... Suzuki hired him as a rookie for a reason. Everyone knows the guy has talent, he just needed to get fit after his injury.

I think Miller is probably the guy who's proven the most wrong about his jump direct from moto3, so he'd get my vote.

I know he's a good rider and a future world champion but not much got said about him last season

Prior to last season I would

Prior to last season I would have said Dovi, always there or thereabouts, been in the paddock a long time, etc.

Now I think I'd probably go with Aleix - I know how many downvotes I'll get but he's had such a slating in the past for not having really done anything before his GP career, yet every time his contract comes up for renewal he gets a ride, and he appears to be really, really good at development work.

After the top 6 he is probably the second best rider. What he did on that Aprilia last season was quality yet no one seemed to care.

Absoluitely agree about Pirro

Absoluitely agree about Pirro, hadn't thought of him because of not being a regular championship rider, but just been singing his praises on another thread.

After last year's riding, I know he's not in the top class, but I think Matty Pasini deserves a nod as well...

Mika Kallio as well, he had more points than Smith and about 15 races less at one point.

Agreed 100%, he didn't win

Agreed 100%, he didn't win the moto2 title, but I bet he would have had better results than Rabat.
