Haters are always gonna hate. Plain & simple. The fact is that Rossi will indeed show improvement on the M1, but to assume he's a shoe in for the title is a little unrealistic. Dani is currently at his peak & Jorge is as well. Marquez seems similar to Rossi, as he's the only other rider I've witnessed to have obtained a win from so far back on the grid & he's practically still in diapers. Truth is, for us Vale fans, is that we would like to see him pull out the major upset next season, but would easily settle for him battling it out within the top 4 factory bikes, the 2 RCs & M1s. Ducati will most likely be in the same boat, at least through next season, until Audi influence really takes effect. Vale is the 2nd oldest rider on the grid now. Sure Biaggi, Checa & Bayliss won later into their years, but those were SBK titles.
