Stoner is going to make life very difficult for Lorenzo to retain his title this year.Even as a big Lorenzo fan i have to admit that he will need to be in fine form to keep Stoner at bay.This could be a truly great 2011 season.

Lorenzo WILL win though!!!!

Sounds like he has quite a bit more pace to come.Good news for bike racing fans that is for sure.
Going to get stronger and stronger as the season unfolds,if he can get some good results in the first few rounds he will be very hard to stop.Dani and Jorge mixing it up with Casey and Ben.Can't wait!

within the team, i predict he will finish 2nd to Pedrosa this year, battling hard with simoncelli for 2nd honda... sorry, just my belief. but he is damn fast though!

I'm looking forward to hearing his views when rossi beats him. it will be quite interesting.

I have massive respect for Stoner..he's so fast but since 2007 there has been a lot of unfulfilled promise. How many times have we went into a season recently noting casey as the man to beat...and somehow he never delivers. Sure he wins races and god hes so fast but theres something missing.

Perhaps 2011 might be different ..don't think so though

I'm just glad Casey is on a bike he (so far) feels happy with this year. Now we get to see the real Stoner, and what he's capable of. For better or for worse, it's time to put his cards on the table and show what he's got.

No predictions other than to say it's all going to make for terrific entertainment. I'm just hoping everybody stays fit, healthy and competitive. It could be the mother of all seasons if they do...

Nice feature to read- it's someone actually being honest and saying that Ducati did have its strengths.

Like someone was saying in another thread, the Duc got this reputation for being a pig with a good engine.
In reality, of course, it is far from a pig but just wasn't as well rounded as the RCV and M1.

When Cam Donald rode the GSVR at the TT he thought it was amazing! MotoGP is very subjective- we'd be foolish to think that a factory GP bike is ever going to be a pup.
Stoner is one quick boy, but I think for now MotoGP is still the thinking mans game.
That'll be Lorenzo (now he's calmed down)or Pedrosa (barring his few exceptional falls).
