I'd say that injury really did a number on Rossi, it'll be interesting to see if he's on form like he was before the injury for 2013.
*after counting twice, I still haven't been able to account for the 53'rd race between those three seasons. I won't bother again, but you get the picture.
Of course Rossi had a whole season on the Bridgestone tires before Lorenzo did, the Bridgestone had such an advantage that Pedrosa switched tires mid season.
