Now that we have a place for this, maybe the MotoGP thread can deal with the racing aspect...
I'll start, and these are not necessarily my opinions but - hey, it's trash talk.
Rossi - loves to ride and have fun and a PR
and merchandising machine. Still a top competitor at an age when most have hung up their leathers
Lorenzo - rides like a machine, fast and clean, confident in his riding abilities but unsure about the rest of the things in life, which makes him a big azzhole with a body attached.
Marquez - young, fast and just starting to mature, probably regrets his part in the 2015 season-ending antics and the damage to his relationship with Rossi. It will be interesting to see his evolution and his maturation over the next 3-5 years.
Pedrosa - gentleman racer, fast but not consistently so, keeps knocking on the door but too short to be seen when you look through the peep hole.
Simoncelli - too bad he's not around, can you imagine how the 2015 season might have gone?
Spies - hard luck Ben. Racing is hard and sometimes unforgiving.
Stoner - Talented rider, Ducati tamer, 'nuff said. (besides the whining)
All right, that's a start, next?
