The 100hp advantage may be true but the current FIM rules allowed a weight change this year making the cars lighter, right? Rossi's been in a F1 car just a few times and has shown skills. He races Ralley cars for fun and does well at that. Why would he NOT be a top competitor in F1? When he makes the change he'll podium at least three times in his first season. I'd bet a steak dinner on that.
