Even if he had the bike he wants I doubt he would destroy dani and Jorge they have both grown and gone up a few levels since 2010.
Realistically if he can keep up with Jorge every race he is doing great, as they will be on the same machinery just tuned to their particular styles. It's just Jorge has been riding it for the last two years, Rossi hasn't. Yes the bike has evolved, but so has Lorenzo with it.
Whatever happens I just hope we get some great battles just like catalunya and motegi, only this time, with the way the Honda was performing at the end of this year, I'm sure dani will be involved at the very least.

I love Rossi,
He may not win the title but he will give the young guys a run for their money.
Rossi is a very clever old fox, whatever he says I am sure he is eyeing the big prize at the end of the year.
Not the fastest one wins the title every year.
Haters are getting weak...

all anyone can do is speculate and give their opinion on what Rossi is going to do with yamaha.
the haters will openly say he will fail, the fans will say he will win.

noone really knows, we just have to wait and see.

truth is he cant do any worse then what happend with Ducati.

Success is a relative term in Rossi's case. Really speaking, there are only 4 competitive works machines on the grid, so anything other than a place in the top two must be considered failure. He won't win a race next year barring very unforeseen circumstances as he should be behind Pedrosa and Lorenzo on a regular basis, so, in short, no success for the old man. For success he should move to WSBK. He would be welcomed by both Ducati and Aprilia.

oh where oh where will the haters be hiding when Rossi wins the WC in 2013 and 2014.

JLo unbeatable??? i doubt it. Pedro beat him 6 times this year because Jlo doesnt know how to fight back, he's just a points getter,

Rossi will own JLo next season, and will fight with Pedro for race wins.

JLo will fight with MM for 3rd most most of the time and MM will take hiim out on most occasions.

thats the same bike he won so many WC's on.....lorenzo must be on it fo some time now...but the M1 still was developed from the beginning by rossi/furusawa

those saying just 1 win are expecting too less

those saying beat the ruk chuk fucati are plain idiots

those sayin world champion are thinking too far ahead too early

i would say multiple wins is a good enough guess
