Keep in mind that Rossi's bike, regardless of how well developed, appears to be fundamentally inferior to the Honda's and not better than the Ducatis.



A Rossi championship on Yamaha is an upset in and of itself.



Goooooooooo!!!!!!!!!

It's debatable and I'm in no position to judge, but the trap speeds seem to suggest that Ducati has a substantial top speed advantage (5 km / hour?). I have been under the impression, possibly mistaken, that the Honda tuned for a bit more power than Yamaha is as easy to ride; with much more power it is somewhat harder to ride.



Rossi seems to be pushing harder this year, which could be due to better other riders, equipment differences or whatever. I personally think that the inline-4 engine configuration is inferior to the V-3/4/5 although I just think that - not a very scientific feeling.
