I wouldn't even say I'm displeased.. More like disgusted, at the lack of recognition towards Petrucci. Horrible bike that even the manufacturer couldn't care less about and yet he was always near the top of the CRTs.

Alvaro surely deserves to be rated higher than Rossi and Cal for sure... cal made the most out of injures and Dnf's of factory guys... when top guys were starting to mean business in the second half to make up for first half season's mess ups, Alvaro looked the best satellite rider... If it was not Rossi and someone else Alvaro would have finished in fourth in few occasions from those last lap duels... Also dovi deserves to be in top 10...

I usually agree with your comments as I know your a Realistic Rossi fan. As am I. I gotta say I'm shocked with your opinion here. First I want to say that I think Alvaro's RCV was absolutely just as capable as Rossi's M1 . In fact at times it looked a bit faster on accel. With that said and the fact that VR beat Alvaro at almost every GP and won every duel I don't agree that AB should be rated higher than VR. He's not a noob anymore. Hes a world champion and he on a good bike. If he would have beaten Rossi on the r

Bautista was developing Showa suspensions on a privateer bike with Nissin brakes. In no way, shape or form it can be compared to a factory M1. I don't agree with Guna4699 but it's still a complete shame to believe Alvaro should've had business at racing with a factory rider. It was a great season from Alvaro, especially the dominant 2nd half. I can't believe people rated AB lower than Bradl, Smith or even Espargaro (which one I think is a tad overrated here).

Me thinks a racing incident at Mugello has something to do with that...

Yes alvaro's bike was mostly better in acceleration than Rossi's bike but when the duel comes down to final few laps nerve holding is more important than biyke capability.... that's why Rossi won against bautista every time.... considering the experience and history of Rossi thrashing his close rivals in duels , bautista was really impressive... my opinion about him was totally bad after his catalunya stupid heroics trying out brake Rossi but now I feel he has the stuff. he sometimes tries too much but learns...

Yes Yes Yes Leave Me Alone ......I have to agree on Dovi. Why Nicky was voted above him beats me. That's from someone who likes Nicky btw.

There is an 'interesting' article in MCN this week, an interview with Dovi.
Dovi managed to swerve every question so either he is a loyal Ducati servant or he is being gagged.
