Simoncelli is really promising and exciting but he will still have a lot of learning to do this year. Even at the end of last season when he was doing well I thought his riding looked a bit jagged compared to the class leaders - this might be due to those long limbs. Podiums would be the target in what hopefully will be a super competitive year He is only starting his second MotoGP season, Stoner, just over a year older is starting his sixth on the big bikes and five of those have been in factory teams. Lorenzo is a similar age to Simo so he is certainly behind others in the experience stakes but that won't worry him if he gets a chance to barge past.
