of corse Rossi does not deserve to be in the top 10. That goes without saying.

Daying that he should be because of his final standing is ridiculous. In that case, we may as well not even bother having a poll and list the final standings instead.

This poll is all about peoples opinions, based on the riders themselves, expectations, equipment, support, experience, etc. Its a complete package.

This is why Rossi was is out of the top 10, and that why Hayden pipped him. Despite having much more support, many more millions thrown at him and HIS bike, he really struggled to beat an injured Hayden this year, and only just beat him the year before when it went down to the last race. So given that Rossi was expected to beat Hayden by a similar margin to what Stoner did, and whilst having much more support, then thats why Rossi got 11th and Hayden 10th.

The same can be said for Bautista, and Dovi and Cal's positions.

I've always liked Dovi and am looking foward to seeing him on the dreaded Ducati I believe he will do a better job than the beloved one.
Hope Ducati back him as well as they did Rossi.

So Rossi doesn't get top 10 but Hayden does. So what exactly did Hayden do to place higher than Rossi? The bias of some people here is unreal. Rossi should have been 6th. He scored two podiums and set the fastest lap of the race at Misano. What did Hayden do? He was fighting with Barbera for most of the season.

Something puts me in both contradicting points of view over Dovi's last season performance overall.Let's not forget that he bought non team supplied suspensions to his desire out of his own pocket which I admire alot as it means he is a kinda high determined rider who would give no less than 100 percent whatever it takes to only gain his goal.
But to put Him in top 3 which would consequently eliminate one of the aliens is a real ridicule given His previous record with factory bike-skill term.Honestly said it was obviously the bike which is great despite its satellite brand.yamaha is every riders'dream bar Ben's last season oddity.
