“There is so much to look forward to this season! We have talented riders moving into MotoGP and many established stars changing teams.
“Jorge [Lorenzo] will be determined to defend his title, but Dani [Pedrosa] showed last season he will be hard to beat, while Valentino [Rossi] moves back to the team he won two world championships with.
“Ducati have also put together an extremely strong team with four excellent riders, so I anticipate some fantastic racing this year.
“Of course, fans will watch with interest to see how the CRT teams develop in their second season.
“Last year we had new bikes, teams and riders coming together for the first time and so with a year of experience under their belt these teams should start to show their real potential.
“Also, the new practice and qualifying format should create a real competitive edge among the riders throughout all the sessions, so I think MotoGP fans are in for an exciting season.”
