not pedrosa,lorenzo is probably the man to beat bcoz he is the most consistent and very fast as well.
I think rossi will also be in the spotlight straight away from the first races. so this year the WC will be very much open to 3 guys OR 4!!

Lorenzo gets his energy and calm from practicing Sophrology. He doesn't let fame and huge fan following to affect his purpose on the track.

Rossi gets his energy and calm from watching his fans shove and spit on his closest competitors.

thats funny I remember Dani's consistency, consistently beating down Lorenzo in the second half of the last season, only losing two races (DNFs, one of which was not his fault) after Indy. Dani gets better rear tire life, and hes better on the brakes and out of the corners. The only thing keeping Dani from blowing down Jorge is Dorna, Repsol and Bridgestone.

* to include the victory at Indy. Dani's pace at Valencia should tell you everything you need to know about what that Honda can do, WHen B-Stone decide to give the pilots some better front tires watch Honda roll all UP AND DOWN Yamaha. Its only a matter of time, anyone who can get away with running people over during practice and races, running people off the track in races is not bounded by 'the rules.' He is meant to be for Dorna, he can do no wrong, Honda will DESTROY Yamaha after Dani leaves Honda/Repsol. Probably not before, I cant see Dani staying any longer than 2014, even if he won 2013 and in 2014, its not in 'THE CARDS.'.

@prof-x: Dani better than Lorenzo on the brakes? Are you out of your f-ing mind? Don't mistake Lorenzo's style of early braking, early releasing, to get maximum corner speed with weakness breaking. Lorenzo is one of the top 3 brakers of the grid, together with Dovizioso and Rossi. Pedrosa? Meh!

Pedrosa isn't better saving the rear tyre, the Honda just has more traction than the Yamaha. This has been so for the last 3 seasons at least. That traction is the only reason Pedrosa is better out of the corners. Bradl, in his rookie year and on a satellite bike, was also faster out of the corners than Lorenzo. That's the Honda vs. the Yamaha.

Lorenzo is one of the most, if not the most, complete riders of the grid. And better than Pedrosa on EVERY SINGLE ASPECT.

Period.
