So MM will be straight away better than the two current “aliens”, and a 9-time world champion.. (means that he´s basically expected to do just like Stoner on his prime, but unlike Stoner, do this while he´s a rookie in the top class)?
Yeah he´s definitely shown some truly extraordinary talent in the smaller classes, that´s why he got the most wanted seat in MotoGP. And I´m sure he´ll do well, and spice up the action on the track nicely, just what the top class needs. But if he takes the title this year, then he´ll do something that not even Rossi, Lorenzo or Stoner could do. They all needed at least one learning year.
