Empty as always!! I am very much sure that you don't carry much knowledge about the sport. "only 4 bikes capable of winning" lol It won't be long till you disappear or change your voice here. Just ask Jorge, " This bike is even better than when Vale left, so it will be even easier for him. You will not lose talent ...etc" There was no dramatic change on the current M1, I remember when Jorge tried another version of M1( His own version) he failed badly and dismissed it, he said the old bike(chassis/engine) is the bike for him to ride, plus Yamaha will never it so dramatically since Mr Furusawa is not around anymore( go figure why!!). It will take Rossi at max Two races to get back to his old level and Jorge already knows it. and for Honda boys are being faster, lol It is the bike that makes Honda boys faster, Both Honda lads are nowhere near Vale/Jorge's talent. 2013-2014 will be shared between Jorge and Vale for sure.

Thats right Sam.. Honestly for me if i had to bet, i think Valentino will be the Champion im 2013 and Jorge will be 2... 2013 for me is Yamaha year.. I expect to Pedrosa get the 3 place and Marquez will have good battles with bradl , Cal and Bautista, i dont think Marquez will get the better of bradl, i know Marquez is good but i now share the same opinion that other users, Is ego is gorwing up to fast he know the expectacions around he will have some crashes has every new rider...

If Rossi wins the WC in 2013 Stoner's head will explode! Or he'll come back, lose and his head will explode.

I think it would be great, and great for motogp if Rossi won it, but I think that might be asking a little much. If Yamaha gets an edge on Honda, Rossi will still need and edge on Lorenzo.

It's just good to see Rossi back in it. The top 4 are on it and the next 4 will pounce on any mistakes - should be a good season.

I'm a huge VR fan. But I actually think the dark horse this season is Bradl with his 'factory spec' honda. He'll be battle for 2-4 positions for sure.

The highest pressure at the moment is on Jorge for sure. He is already under pressure from Hondas and now his nemesis Vale. Jorge is at his best yet Rossi(at 34 year of age) after two miserable year was only one tenth behind(as the #2!!!) Rossi might be #2, but his talent is #! for sure. Sure 500cc days are over and it is all about bike and Rossi/Ducati/Dovi showed it to us. I believe two years at Ducati have actually made him stronger in terms of consistency and concentration. He is the most consistent rider he almost never makes mistakes. If he wins the title at 34 this year...

I gotta disagree with you Sam in their respective motogp careers jlo has been more consistent. He hasn't won as many titles but he also hasn't finished lower than 4th while finishing a race, except a single 6th place when rejoining after a crash in 2011, since then end of 2008. Even in 2010, jlo out finished Rossi 11-3 when they raced together and was ahead of him when he had his crash. He now has 5 straight years on the yam to Rossis 7 but holds the advantage due to not taking 2 years off. He's too much for Rossi now. Rossi will get a few wins but not the title.

@Tommy

lol please next time come with something smarter! For your information Rossi crashed in practice session ana not in race. So Jorge was in front of Vale when he crashed? lol :)) I bet you have not watched even a single race of 2010. Remember Sepang from 11th spot?? lol Dani destroyed Jorge last year and proved that Jorge is not that much strong!! You can be sure that Vale will bring them hell.
