    erm i wonder

    he's got a good chance as long as honda don't screw him over they didn't want him(as they wanted and eventually signed stoner) but had to keep him as when he signed his 1 yr contract (2009) he had a automatic 1 yr extension clause in his contract if he finished 5th or above and as he finished 5th he has caused honda a massive headache.

    I like MotoGP but not that knowledgeable about it, though I watch the races if I get the chance. I do like Rossi, I have no idea whether he is going to be in contention this year. I couldn't understand how Toseland never seemed to do anything when he had the chance to race in the other year.

    Thats perhaps the biggest issue as to why he wont do so well this year, is Honda.
    I'm still surprised to see him on the Honda this year and wasnt paid out of his contract like they seem to do in all other forms of motorsport when they dont want a driver/rider. That said Im sure he has the ability, and am looking forward to seeing him ride at Silverstone this year

    Gone for Stoner :(

    Really want Rossi to have a great season on the Ducati but I can't see them doing it this year.

    he'll be pushing hard that's for sure,this season is for him about putting himself in the shop window he won't be a factory rider next season but with the change next season there should be more rides can see BMW and Aprilia moving from wsbks.the aprilia even looks like a moto gp bike it's as if they have used the wsbks as a test to get the bike ready for when 1000cc's are introduced to the moto gp grid

    Voted for Lorenzo, as he is the most complete rider on the track - proved by last year's domination. He took the highly regarded Rossi to the cleaners even before Rossi got injured.

    I plumped for the mighty Marco, he's definately added a bit of spice to the proceedings............................although I think the more clinical Stoner will win it.

    I think Marco may have been told to cool down by the Honda fat cats, don't want a customer machine upsetting things. I thought Pedrosa let off the breaks and ran into him and Lorenzos incident with Dovi was far more cynical. Anyway, we will see......................onwards to Silverstone.
