There is no doubt in my mind re-Dovi's potential.
He's just got to believe in himself and stop looking after the press..got to find his 'Casey' side quick.
Greatest strength...the best 'late braker' since Barros. Very good in the wet. Dovi...do what you do best and to Hell with the rest!!! Take a leaf out of Aoyama's book.

I seem to recall him doing fairly well on his Sat. bike during his rookie year. In fact, im sure that is what earned him his factory ride. I see no reason why we wont see him on the podium this year. Seeing as how every 'alien' made significant enough mistakes to drop them off the short-list at least once last year.

beating one of them hands down? not so much... maybe.

When will people stop posting this sh1t about how Spies overtook Dovizioso? I'm not going to post any excuses here, but your words are the same if I post here 'Bayliss is better than this stupid clown ***** Rossi because he won Valencia 2006 and Rossi fell'. Don't get me wrong, Spies is a cool dude, but these posts show how much brains you have

He's defo got the speed. But as with alot of these riders all they want is the blessed factory ride, and when they get it where else is there to go. They get far to much far to soon at such young ages. We forget Rossi is the old man of the championship and he's only early 30's. Why would Dovi want to go any faster he's already on the HRC Honda. He was quicker on the Scott bike.
