at 34 if Vale wins only one race against Hondas and other youngs. he proves that he is the GOAT. he'll be fighting for tirle for sure right from the beginning. and he'll be better as we go toward the end. Nice to see if jorge and dani can win the title when they are over 30.

I tell you something, if Bradley Smith starts matching Cal's times never mind beating it (however marginal) or outscoring him in races, that could easily do Cal's head in as he's a bit fragile in that way....he's a rider that needs to be psychologically ahead of his team mate to deliver his best performances, especially if that team mate is a Rookie! He could cope with Dovisiozo beating him consistently in 2012 as Dovi was an established and experienced Motogp rider, but Bradley is a different kettle of fish!
Hmmmm...this will be an interesting one to watch!

First test of the year but already it can be seen that realistically, nothing separates the top 6. Now factor in the following,

The satellites will drop away through the year (yes/no)?
Yamaha's are easier to ride (yes/no)?
Honda will support dani, mark or both equally?
Yamaha will support Jlo, vale or both equally?
Vale after 2 crap years is 0.1 of reigning WC...a boost to vales confidence, a blow to Jlo's or irrelevant?

What a year this is going to be...:):):)

Rossi the goat for winning just one race? Shouldn't he be dominating if he was such a thing? Hell, then i can say Dovisioso is the GOAT if he can get at least two podiuns with the Ducati, wich is more than Rossi could do last year...

looks like the top six are all strong podium contenders next year. Smith will be doing well if he can get in amoungst that lot. Overall good showing from the Brits plenty to cheer for next year.

Colin should head back to WSBK and forget about the cheques. Hes got more than enough and right now he cant say its because he loves racing. 2 WSBK could be bloody entertaining

Can't understand how some people are getting excited & predicting a great season.

So far we've seen 3 days on track & all the riders have pretty much been in mostly the same positions throughout.

Times are not really that close either, considering that the difference between 1st & making the Superpole cutoff in 16th over in WSBK will most likely be about 1 second.

Looks to me like we're in for a procession, with the only unknown being Dani's head - which seemed to come right towards the end of 2012. If he stays focused the title looks to be his.

Looking at these results, I'm starting to pray for rain already!
