So far, MotoGP has been weird. Usually it's Rossi, then everybody else fighting for second. With Rossi having a few bad starts and not even qualifying well, it really seems to be up in the air. Hayden has been very consistant, I think that will pay off for him down the line. However, if Rossi gets things back in line, he'll have another championship, he is currently 4th in the points. Pedrosa isn't a chamionship contender IMO, but he makes the race very interesting.
I'll put my bid on Rossi. He went from 14th to 4th, if he could have kept from off roading it early, he would have been in the fight half way through the race. Its early in the season and he's only like 14 points out.
And that Stoner kid. Is it me or does he look like he's 13. I know he's 20, but he looks tons younger, and looks way too young to be in MotoGP. I think he'll have a better season the half of the 7 Rossi named. He looked great on Sunday.
Rossi will sneak up and grab it i'm sure, he won't win it with races to spare this season though, despite the start to the year you'd still have to be brave or foolish to bet against him at this stage.

It's good to see Suzuki finally get something going on their program in GP class. Definately making it a better manufacturer battle this season. Honda? Ducati? Yamaha? That's the true question, who's got the championship on the factory side of things?
