cmpunk As with many other notable examples, it's because the people based their votes on expectations not just results - otherwise they'd just follow the world championship standings.

Yeah for dani

but seriously, dani rightly deserve to be crowned ROTY and given his year over year improvement ever since landing in the premier class, 2012 being the most significant.

now despite being stoner/lorenzo fan, one can only hope that in 2013 that dani steps up his game.

Forgot Rossi was 10th last year. 2012 was definitely worse than 2011 for him, I think because we were so disappointed that he hadn't managed to fix the duck as he declared he would...

Good poll, very tight between dovi and cal, just as it appeared on track. Overall I think the poll reflects what action we saw quite wonderfully.

Roll on 2013 (let's hope mm and bs can squeeze in near the top) :)

Rossi not in the top 10 is hate? i thought he was voted down because as the 'GOAT' and his 'cockyness' he decided he was better than everyone else and would humiliate everyone by winning on the ducati.. that went well didn't it.. he wasn't impressive at all.. infact he was just embaressing over the 2 seasons

This result is just bs and shows that everybody just woting on their rider total fanboyism if you ask me

Placing the champion after pedro just makes me sick.

about valentino not making the top 10 makes me think of all the haters and why.

he acually was the best ducati rider of them all this season,but hey that dosnt count

Im not saying he owns the top 5 spots either but come on having him out of top 10 is pure hate and fanboyism

Why is Petrucci so lowly rated? He had a bike with a massive horsepower deficit and put in some excellent performances, so much so he was in consideration for a Pramac seat. Deserves way higher than a 3.86!

@ Jack B....Good post. I also can't help agreeing on the Rossi point. He finished top Ducati rider, he scored more podiums than some others beneath him, when he felt that the bike wouldn't throw him up the road he proved he still has race craft in both wet and dry.
His detractors castigate him for not trying.... they castigated him in 2011 when he fell off 12 times when he was trying. Too many riders have suffered career wrecking injuries while trying to get better results than their bike would allow.
I wouldn't rate him in the top 6 by any criteria, but he certainly deserves to be in the top 10. Thousands voting with multiple names kept him out.
