He certainly has potential. I'm looking forward to this year too, not least as Rossi is back on a competitive bike with a burning will to win another title, after 2 years of not having a decent bike with proper factory support. Shame for the Italians!
He's already not too far off the pace despite not having ridden the Yamaha fo 2 years. Meanwhile Pedrosa & Lorenzo are at the peak of their careers and although they know Rossi's ambitions, will do everything they can to stop him. There's going to be some good battles. Marquez might be in a similar mould to Simoncelli, but more competitive & on a factory bike. Roll on April's first race!
