I think tardozzi is right to say that the pressure will mostly be focused on Melandri. This year, Crutchlow was brought in as a rookie to learn while JT was brought in as a double World Champ and MotoGP rider, and was expected to deliver the wins. I think Laverty and Melandri will be undertaking similar roles in the team, with Laverty given more leeway to develop and learn. It'll be interesting to see if that plays out any different to this year.
