Motogp 2007

From a Yamaha/Rossi fan's point of view, watching this year's Motogp has been a painful affair...so far. The Ducati is breathtakingly dominant on the straights, while not being that-much-of-a-pig in the corners. With Stoner doing a solid job, so far it's been a demolition job.

Still, it's so very obvious that the Ducati scores only on the straights. Rossi's dominant win at Jerez confirm this, too. Anyway looking at the races with the length of the main straight in mind, here's my predictions. I might get every one of this wrong, but it's been fun. I know i've left out Hopkins, Terrible Tony, Hayden, etc. But anyway:

 Venue   Length of Main Straight
 Winner 
 Qatar 1068m 
  Stoner
 Jerez  600m  Rossi
Istanbul  720m  Stoner
Shanghai  1175m  Stoner
France  450m  Rossi
Mugello  1141m  Rossi
Catalunya  1047m  Capirossi 
Donington Park  564m  Pedrosa
Assen  970m  Melandri
Sachsenring  780m  Rossi
Laguna Seca  300m  Edwards
Brno  636m  Rossi
Misano  562m  Pedrosa
Estoril  986m  Stoner
Motegi  762m  Rossi
Phillip Island  900m  Rossi
Sepang  920m  Capirossi
Valencia  876m  Melandri

I've given 6 wins to Rossi. My logic is simple - Last year, he won 5 races despite coping with an absolute crappy bike and tons of other bad luck. The man's talent isn't going anywhere, his luck can only get better, and his bike is definitely better. So, on the conservative side, i've decided he is gonna win 7 races.

I can't imagine Honda not upping the game and Pedrosa not winning anything. Same with Melandri. So with Capirossi. So i've given them a few too, but i've left out Hayden - because i really can't imagine him wining anything. Maybe it's my lack of imagination. Anyway.
