Next year could be really tough

The engine changes next year are quite extensive, and this could be a problem for Yamaha.

Yamaha has neither 'confirmed or denied' the use of DFI engines, however, one of the rules next year is the banning of ultra high pressure fuel pumps needed for DFI

So far Rossi and Lorenzo have tested with the long life 09 engine but not the long life non-DFI engine.

There could be a big step down in performance trying to get to the end of races without their trick fuel saving technology and having a litre less fuel

Well I agree very much on the upcoming MotoGP 2010 season might be the toughest but we all know by looking at the quality of the competition, isn't it :)

Roll on the 2010 dice, my money is on Valentino for the 2010 title :)

I don't see Yamaha doing it again. Honda will double there efforts and Ducati with Casey will be in the front. But of course Val will be tough as well as Jorge, if he doesn't crash from trying to hard.
Bring back the liter-monsters!My money is on Casey.
Go Ben Go!

lets just get on with it. Too excited with anticipation. I know there are some geezers that would disagree, but from someone who has followed motorycycle racing now for 15 yrs seriously, I still think next year should be one of the most competitive seasons (on paper). The talent level is ultra high. These new engine regulations scare me. I hope all the factories get it right so everybody has a fairly competitive bike.

Absolutely 100% correct Morgue! How many times over the last few years have we all thought the next race would be really close and exciting, only for it to be a boring procession come race day? Just when you think it's gonna be a very close race (as qualifying was decided by 1,000th of a second) only for it to turn out to be a boring race?

But it's worth waiting for, as every now and again we get a rare gem. Stoner and Rossi at Catalunya in 2007, Stoner and Rossi at Laguna Seca 2008, Lorenzo and Rossi again at Catalunya 2009...

Most of the races will be dull, but we tune in for the rare gems that make it all worth while... Viva MotoGP!
