Tactical genius in close combat. That is (or at least was!) probably the best side of Rossi's racecraft, he always had a plan, and could change it very quickly. Not afraid to do some ballsy moves, even in the last corner, if necessary. Pedrosa showed similar determination a couple of times this year, but that's new for him. Like the rest of the "three aliens", before his title challenge in -12, he's been at his best, when he's able to ride his own race, preferably break away at the front and not get tangled up in a fight. Rossi can have it either way. But of course he'll need to be able to stay with Lorenzo&Pedrosa first.

MM seems to have that ability to fight hard, but sometimes his judgment fails him. But the dude is barely twenty (or is he still under that?) so he will learn. Just hoping his learning process isn't a painful one!
