I doubt it will be the case, but if Rossi doesn't beat both satellite Yamaha's in 2013, he will have wished he retired at the end of 2010.
And according to rumours that said it was marketing that wanted him back on a Yamaha, and that the race team did not really want him, his task won't be easy.

Seems about right for CC - he continued to inch forward this season. Next year he's going to have to stop falling off AND pick up a bit more speed to progress further though...

Hard to argue (presuming the top 3 are as seems most likely) that VR isn't about where he deserves either - especially given what has been a very moderate level of effort on the Ducati.

Encouraging to think that people have read it that way though, i'd have bet my socks that the fan club would have voted him up regardless....

yuri... rossi ended the season in 6th position in the championship, 12 points above crutchlow in 7th.

Lctamer, i only have one gear...

we all know how this is going to end so i'll just say your guy quit when it wasn't all about him anymore.
And even though it looks like rossi may not be in the top ten its still all about rossi isn't it. Whether you or the quitter liked it or not motogp has always been about rossi and it always will be about rossi untill he decides to retire. Rossi didn't quit when he threw his leg over the duke in valencia. He stuck with it and tried to improve it. Racing is in valentinos blood he aint a quitter whos gone fishing.

Crutchlow deserved to be in the top 10 but not ahead of Rossi. Quick round up of facts:
VR 2x2nd and CC 2x3rd in terms of podiums
VR 41p AHEAD of his teammate, CC 67p BEHIND his teammate
DUCATI vs YAMAHA - no comment
Now either chicken or moaner is out or this is just radiculous.
