Underrated.

Look at what Sic failed to achieve on a factory bike for two seasons,two podiums gents that's it, and was being heralded as "the future of MotoGP" until his untimely death. I doubt Dovi was enjoying the same level of support as Hondas favourite three as well....

Maybe Dovi needs to grow a crappy hair cut and crash into people and act the silly Italian a bit more?

Good solid rider, hope he goes well on the Tech3, I'd expect him to be beating Crutchlow from the off - at the minimum - and threatening Spies too (until the satellite team falls too far behind the Works team).

Dovizioso took not more than 2 podiums in his first two seasons, just like Simoncelli did. A lottery victory and a 3rd in his rookies season. Only Dovi peaked early and Simoncelli was still progressing all the time. But for this poll I think Dovi should have been placed higher, because he did finish 3rd in the championship and was very solid. Personally I would have rated him 4th.

"Dovizioso took not more than 2 podiums in his first two seasons"

Yes but in '08 he was not on a factory machine. It's not just about the podiums, look at his consistency when comparing the two.

I couldn't believe that Dovi deserved the 6th place in this voting...It was his best year in the MotoGP category and I suppose he has given some exciting results and experiences...He has beated one of his teammates and the beated carried out before? to my mind(as a Dovi supporter) it is an unacceptable result and i couldn't understand how pedrosa and spies finished higher in the voting in the topic of MotoGP 2011...are u blinds?javascript:insertTextCursor('comment',%20':-o')
