Why: I don't think rossi lost his racecraft in two years. He didn't push the ducati because he knew the bike couldn't turn. Jlo is more consistent than most, but rarely delivers stand in the bleachers demonstrations of racecraft like rossi has. Agreed, rossi did this in the past but I would bet he still got it. Dani will be fast., consistent, but tends to have an issue or two that keeps a few points away. MM will win races, wow us, won't get the championship this year.
