i think hayden is hands down better this year.. i think rossi was kinda screwed this year with his bike and it popped his bubble that he was in and from then on he couldnt regain his mojo.. i think hayden was completly opposite and once he started to get podiums he got that mojo and started to kick .... i think he is deff.. goin to be rossi's replacement and be the new king of MotoGP. but i think as of now rossi is still a more talented rider he just isnt doin all that well this year.. ..... also i thought the last race he was racing with a broken hand. that wasnt 6 weeks ago plus he has been riding on it so im sure that is still not heeled yet..


***cliff notes.. hayden has mojo rossi doesnt... rossi still has a lil more skill and expieriece then hayden but hayden shall be the new king soon***

Hate to say this for you Hayden lovers, but Rossi was just having bad luck.
(though I still think Hayden would've won the race with Rossi on podium)
Two of Val's races, he couldn't even finish them because of the bike died on him.
This year, he sure is having a difficult time.
But there are 6 races left before the season ends.
If his M1 can hold up for next races, you never know.
I think Rossi has a good chance to win this year again.

Remember.
He won a race with a broken wrist.

Confidence certainly does help to win races.

give rossi a working bike and he can beat hayden. rossi has fallen behind a few times this year and also did not finish 3 or 4 times (no points earned) and was behind hayden 26 points up to the last race.

hayden is good but maybe 4 years away from being compared to rossi. its like comparing labron james to michael jordan. if labron has a few good games all of a sudden hes compared to MJ. please.

Rossi is great but I think Hayden just has his number this year...not to mention the shytty luck he is havin...I think Hayden wins it all this year, next year may be a different ballgame

This is great !! Haden is right where I predicted him to be. Rossi is still the King but has had bad luck.

yeah rossi is still on top and the most talented rider this year hes had some bad luck and hes still riding with a broken hand...... but when rossi retires, i think then itll be all hayden. again it might be over this year but if rossi comes back next year and has a bike that EFFIN works i think he'll own all again.

Hayden is not a lock for the title (YET). Although momentum and confidence are on his side. With 6 races to go and ONLY a 30-something point lead, it's not hard to figure out that 1 DNF by Hayden would put 3 guys within a EASY reach of the title.

Go Nicky!

After Rossi, I'd go for Pedrosa.
I've been following him since 250cc and that guy's just amazing.
See how well he did at Laguna Seca after rode the track for 4 times (3 free practices and qualifying).
Nicky's the one who knows and rode the track the most out of 19 racers.
He definitely had an advantage of the track.

Not to mention Dani has the physical advantage as well.
5'1" 115lbs is pretty good number for a racer.
Hayden weighs at least 50lbs more than Dani.

i strongly agree. 1st year riding on that bike and already showing glimpses of gretaness.

i like hayden too but not as much as the Euro riders.

Given time and experience in MotoGP, Pedrosa will best Hayden. The best I can remember, Hayden didn't enter MotoGP with the same momentum that Pedrosa has.

And 69>46 THIS year due to mechanical problems. You can't ignore how close Rossi has been to Hayden this year inspite of all the problems and DNF's. I love my Yamaha, but Rossi's bike suckeths the mostest this year.

Also Hayden skipped 125cc and 250cc.
Coming from different background.
Which made him struggle first 3 years.
