It is very clear why Valentino Rossi is MotoGP's greatest start, his charisma and persona has no equal in MotoGP, and the humble pie he ate at Ducati made him mature a great deal. Now, here is my theory, it is in Yamaha's best interest that Valentino starts winning sooner than later, I am a fan of Lorenzo, and I consider him a better rider than Rossi in present, but he does not pull the same crowds and sponsors that Rossi does, so I don't think Rossi will be handicapped, he'll get what Lorenzo gets, if not extra. After all, they(Yamaha) are all businessmen in a decaying sport, all eyes including mine are going to be on Rossi Tuesday, and I really hope he does good, for the sake of the sport and the show, I also hope Marquez brings spectacle and rivalry. Can't wait for 2013.

Goodness knows the paddock needs some competitiveness, now with Stoner gone. Bring it on! Can't see him winning a title though, he'll be 34 next year.

It'll be status quo for Rossi. 2 seconds per lap off the pace and a pile of excuses. He's been owned and exposed like no other rider. Unless he's on by far the best bike with special tyres he struggles to beat the CRT's.

Now we will know if rossi still has the level he need to be at the top, lets face it, he was on duc for 2 years wich isnt very user friendly, and the question is what is the damage? will he be fast out of the box or it will be another excuses i am not here to go for the times i am just trying to adapt my riding style to the bike :) i not expecting records breaking but if he isnt at least top 6 times on a factory M1 title wining machine he is in trouble but i thing he will do just fine :)

if next year he gets beaten up by his teammate (again),
his career will lose lots of shiny yellow...

impressive record results will remain, but talks about advantages and favoritism from bikes, media and GP organization will put a big shadow on him.
