It is good to see Rossi back to a piece of machinery that can win, the Yamaha, even if the only one who may be able to win on it is Jorge Lorenzo.
I’m a big Valentino Rossi fan, but Lorenzo is the best rider at the moment in MotoGP.
Almost indistinguishably, another Spaniard, Dani Pedrosa, riding factory Honda.
The Honda looks like it has a slight edge over the Yamaha, at the moment.
I have a feeling about Marquez; I believe he could win the whole shebang. It is the style; it looks like an emulation of Casey Stoner, and it works like n emulation of Casey Stoner on a HONDA!
It’s going to be an interesting season with these four riders close; combined the four of them should win over 95% of the races this year; the only question is, the spread. The current pecking order: Lorenzo, Pedrosa, Marquez, Rossi.
We’ll get a better read on the machinery, and comparatives of the players as they get more experience on the bikes. If Rossi and Marquez can’t start to make up deficits to their team mates at Austin, this coming week, it could be a season of number two to the incredibly strong Lorenzo and Pedrosa. Maybe Pedrosa is on the ascendancy against his gifted countryman?
I’d like to see Stoner move to Formula One by 2014. I’d like to see what he could do. I have a feeling that it would be impressive, if in machinery capable of winning.
