No hard feelings here, you can like which ever rider you want. But only one will win this year, llike last year and every year, and it will not be Max.
Did you hear his last comments on the M1 Yamaha?
He said in a few words that he congratulates Honda for the bike they built (the Rc211V) and that he needs 20 more HP to be able to keep the pace of Rossi!!
If you have 20 HP to spare please give it to him
PS. Since you like him so much take a close look to this picture and tell us what you see:
I'm for Rossi too. I like what he brings to the sport. He's fun.
I think he will take the championship too but there are a couple of people to watch out for. The new Honda rider(I think it is Katoh) that bumped up from 250GP will be riding the two stroke and in his first outing on the bike he was 2/10ths of a second off of Rossi's new time(ie, broke last years record in his first ride on the bike).
Also watch out for Roberts on the new Suzuki. They brought it out a year early so I'm thinking things were going well in testing. The old bike handled well and it is basically the same chassis so he should be watched.
I don't believe a thing Max says. Horspower is only part of the picture. All of the four strokes are going to have more power than the tires can handle anyway. What happen to Yami engineers saying they were detuning the engine so they get usable power.
As long as the V5 Honda holds together Rossi will blitz it. If not he will revert to the old NSR, and still blitz it.
I really rate Nakano and Katoh, but the real surprise will be Checa. The guy practises rear wheel steering on a wicked R1 the Marlboro team built up for him, and he is a much better 4-stroke racer than Biaggi ( who can't rear wheel steer ). High corner speed won't help you with 200+ hp pushing you down the shute.
