Simo would have to have 10 kg's on most riders, his hair would be another 5kg's, how will he win a race?
Best bet I'd say is him causing trouble from about 4th heading back. He's also hard on tires and inconsistent, but his battles should be good to watch, he'll be like a heavyweight backstop for the Honda riders.

Simoncelli will be a revelation this year.The bike is very good and towards the end of last season he seemed to stop throwing the thing down the round.That picture made me laugh when I saw the difference in height between Aoyama and the top of Sic's hair though! :)

Had to laugh at his size, as someone said he'll be like the bouncer at the local pub, the honda boys will take off at the start and if you get stuck behind the big bloke it won't be easy to get past.
Honda have really thought this year out well, thats why they've given him a factory bike and probably a fatter contract...lol...the other riders may need to carry baseball bats.

I am really starting to like Sideshow Bob.

I don't know about Aoyama. I thought Sic was way better on a 250 and would def overhaul Aoyama before the end of the season, but when it came to the crunch Hiro won fair and square. You have to respect that.

But, although Hiro was injured last year, you can't help but feel Sic was by far the best of the newcomers, and I don't expect Hiro to get close to him this year. Harsh on Hiro perhaps, having beaten Sic only a year ago, but Sic was very impressive last year. I expect he will be looking at Dovi's bike for 2012.

@Al, re: ..I think Simoncelli coul be the revelation this year!GOOD LUCK!!.... (Hope Rossi gets it sorted SOONEST)

me thinks not he (his tires) won't last the race.

expect him to entertain first 1/2 of the race.
