With Jorge's consistency and Vale's now that he's back on Japanese machinery, I'd bet the manufacturers & team championships are a viable prediction. Manufacturers may be more of an unknown with Dani, Marc, Bradl and Bautista representing HRC. Bautista & Smith's performances will be the deciding factor there. Smith's looking pretty good, given all the skepticism.

i am a massive massive rossi fan ive followed him from 125's but I fear that in the past vale could win races at 90% and only pushed to 100% in times of real trouble and most of the time it came off. now with the development of the bikes and the younger riders pushing so hard he has to ride at 101% all the time so im doubtful of another world championship (I hate saying that) but there will be races it comes off and he wins a race or 3.
please please let me be wrong and he can win another championship!!!!!
forza valentino!!!!

And with this you have to also believe in the tooth fairy... this year will be a deciding year for Motogp, if they play their one man games the true races will leave, they have made their money

Just because a rookie hasn't done it doesn't mean it will never happen. Marquez will finish higher than Rossi I'm putting money on that. I would not be surprised if he is contending for the crown towards the end. Still think dani or Jorge but I'm not writing him off.

yeah injuries and unforeseen incidents aside JL and DP are givens for me, the interesting bit will be VR and MM as far as the champ table goes, i dont think many people will expect either of them to take the title but then wouldn't be a total shock if one of them did either. hope cals consistent enough to ruffle some feathers this year too.

Everyone is going to be riding so hard to get away from marquez cos they know he'll probably end up taking them out a few times over the course of a season. Should make for some interesting racing!

I'm glad he publicly said this so Marquez sets his mind straight. Even though he might just be playing politics to make Rossi feel young and not to piss sponsors.

Rossi is going to be very competitive but that the end Lorenzo, Pedrosa and Marquez (after about the 3rd race) will prevail.
