Best bike on the grid this season is Yamaha.

Yamaha is best handling bike since 2005. He had not enough power. Power comes in 2007 and since that the Yamaha comlete packege is the best.

You were incorrect when you said that even Toseland qualified 6th in his first MotoGP race as he actually qualified 2nd. He was just pipped by Lorenzo in the last minute of qualifying and that was on the Tech 3 which was nowhere need as factory as the current machines. He finished 6th in the race and was on the pace the entire race.
One second back on a factory bike is not as incredible or unprecedented as people make out.

However, I really hope he goes well in the race and shows them all what a racer he is. Just keep it clean tho!

The key point to getting a set up with a bike is pre-season. The laps that many spend getting the controls right, never mind the new technologies, tyres...... One second in that respect is NOTHING. I'm no JR fanboy, but he's performed exceptionally so far. No Troy Bayliss, but MotoGP is a much more advanced arena today.

@bladeyboy if you know that much about motogp you will know that toseland had winter testing to learn the bike and also the start of the season would be the best opportunity to get close to front of the grid as development of satellite bikes isn't as fast as factory
