"I am Valentino Rossi. If I stay in MotoGP it is to try to win. When that is not possible it is time to stay at home and work in the garden!"

The best rider ever in MotoGP. He's already a legend and I think he will win his 10th title this year, but it won't be easy with the other big 3. I think Stoner is his biggest threat but he's gotta watch out for Lorenzo and Pedrosa. Maybe newcomers like Spies can give him a fight and take some points away too.

Hi, I'm Valentino Rossi, you might remember me from such actions as "No more data sharing for you - every season" and "why cant I get my michelin's flown in just before race day"

I sense that Vale will be at his most ruthless this year, and will be all business.

In years past, before the three "other" aliens, he was a bit more playful with the grid, toying around in 2nd or 3rd at most of the races knowing he was going to catch up with the rest.

The last two years, we have seen him change his racing style a bit, and getting in front at the outset (he knows he can't let the other three take off, because he won't catch them like he used to with the likes of Biaggi and Gibbers). His starts have also greatly improved compared to three years ago.

These changes show his respect for the young ones and more importantly, shows he is capable of adapting and improving still.

Obviously you don't know much about MotoGP! Michelin was not doing it for Rossi like your're implying, back then, riders and team would take it to the track and test, and at the same time engineers were gathering all sorts of data, come saturday, top teams with money willing to afford, would then hv michelin bring for they riders a specific tire that would suite that particular riders stile, circuit, byke and weather, Michelin did that for years and teams that had a chance of winning the chapionship all did it. It would never work well at race tracks away from Europ, as transportation would be a proble, hance, Bridgestone fitted bikes would ascend as they would do the same at their turth.

I bet Rossi will eventually go into rallying once he retired from MotoGP. At mid 30's aged for Rossi, it will be just fine for him to compete in rally for at least a couple for years before he totally retired from work and figure out how to spend the millions he has earned throughout his career.
