Thumbs up Ducati + Rossi = 2011 champion?

The 2011 season is sure shot thriller as important drivers switch teams.

Reigning world champ Jorge Lorenzo will remain with Yamaha while Casey Stoner goes to Honda and importantly Rossi goes to Ducati.

What does that mean to you?

Rossi and Ducati steal the show from Lorenzo Yamaha?
or
Lorenzo and Yamaha sort out the deal with Ben Spies (joining Yamaha) and win cleanly?
or
Pedrosa and Stoner in Repsol Honda spoil the party or someone else will make best use of the new orders?

I think Italians and Ducatistas + Rossi fans like me will be going mad after all they have an Italian racer riding Italian stallion.

Cheers!

^100. Bang on target. It will be Rossi and Ducati all the way to the finish line. Classic rider with a classic bike = World Champion 2011.

History proves. Yamaha was down and trodden but, when the doctor joined them, he brought them laurels. So its the rider thats going to make the difference here.

I wont be surprised if it will bring the 1-2 podium finishes for Ducati when Rossi joins them. I am a fan of ONLY Rossi. So i will follow him whereever he goes

Casey Stoner was very inconsistent this season though he is a good rider.

And, i am willing to bet, next year it will again be fight between Rossi and Lorenzo. Would be exciting to see whether Ducati wins or the Yam.

Next year, it will clearly show fans, if the rider or manafacturer makes the MOST important difference

At malaysia, this year, Rossi drops from second row to the 9th position at the first corner.
And then, somehow, with the SLOWER yamaha, he goes on to win the race.

If the ducati works for him,next year, Rossi is going to be invincible.

+ 1. This year's Ducati is already a race winning bike and we all know what wonders Rossi can do when he gets on it.

The Rossi fan in me is gonna be very happy but not the case for the Yamaha fan in me. I might be wrong but I feel Lorenzo will be fighitng for 2nd or 3rd place in the championship.

Technically speaking, Rossi changed the Yamaha team. The new setup that even Lorenzo got as inheritance is said to be the best.

I think Rossi has to work really hard to tame the Ducati and I am sure he will, its will be history in the making. I saw Doctor to be complacent and bored in few races, I am sure after this year's championship the hunger will be back and he will prove why he is the DOC

I agree with nitrous and Snip3r. Rossi is the man and though I am all out Yamaha fan, I think next year will belong to Ducati.

Is it a speculating thread?

My 100% true speculation
J Lo won't win any further Moto GP championships.

The Yamaha isn't slower by any means and the hiccup whatever it has on straights is covered more than enough in corners and braking.

It is the most sublime handling Moto GP bike.

@sheel: Speculation, hardly my man

@vagu: if Rossi has his way and Ducati engineers can tame the machine's immense torque to work in the corners, he will be lapping most of the field. everyone say hallelujah

Haven't seen him lapping the whole field (or even half the field) since 2002.

Has anyone?

Well, Ducati are certain to improve their bike immensely due to Rossi's feedback, and also due to the immense pressure it would bring upon them. As Nicky Hayden said 'If Rossi's not winning on the Ducati, they are going to burn the factory down'.

Just imagine the benefit to Ducati's bike sales due to Rossi's brand value. Immense.

To be fair, next year I expect it to be Rossi + Ducati vs Stoner + Honda. I feel Lorenzo and the Yamaha squad may be third.
