...passing Dovi on the track, and looking back as if to say "I know your pain"...

But seriously, a top 3 standings finish to the year with a win or two would be a good way to get back on track. Keeping people interested in MGP is a success, be it love or hate for the man. I wish him the best.

anything short of a WC would not be deemed a success IMHO. He's not over the hill by a long shot. I think he is still in his prime as he has raced with these bikes and riders before and won.

You know that I know that you know that all it will take is one win for Vale to drive Stoner's fans to the brink, and that's all that matters (every other win is icing on the cake - or shrimp on the barbie if you prefer).

**** you all that say that Rossi fans are getting less exciting now!! Rossi on the Yamaha will be major problem to the top guys of this year and 4sure he can win but people are not blind, Pedrosa and lorenzo are riding good without mistakes and really showing that they are extrakting the best of the bikes.. Is not like Rossi will get the Yamaha and will play like Spider man or Super Man, all fans have said that will not be esay but 4sure Rossi can still win to this guys, Rossi is fast, Consistente and Smart but all is fighths against Lorenzo was most of the times hard battles and Rossi have to make miracles like im catalunha 2009 to take the best of him.. Noboday say that Rossi will joke with this guys on the Yamaha.. Some people dont sean to understand that, the major smille for fans is that we allready will be waching Rossi fightingh for the Top again but to Win the WC will not be esay job, if he can he can but is not esay.. Fans wil be happy because with yamaha Rossi can ride happy

As a fan of Ducati and Rossi it was very disappointing to see that marriage not produce the results it should have. But as that chapter is over Rossi is back to Yamaha and his results should be much better as he get's used to the new bike. However, if you consider age, past injuries and the damage to his confidence it will probably take a few races for him to improve his confidence. A championship while not impossible won't be easy but a top 3 should be within reach.

@Maximusproxx Regarding the livery, it would be good if Yamaha incorporated Rossi's trademark yellow by returning to some variation of the classic 'speed blocks' in the traditional Yamaha USA yellow and black. The red and white version they had at Laguna to celebrate their 50th anniversary of racing looked great.

success is beating Jorge more than losing to him. In 2010 they both had some injuries and were close in performance.

That gap should be smaller if Vale has success and the target on Jorge's back won't just be from Rossi since he is the WC.

Since Mike the Bike is considered by many the best of all time, do you think those that think that expect him to rise from the grave and win races?

(Sorry for the extreme bad taste, but some arguments here deserve tough answers.)
