The first three represent the undisputed "Aliens" - Pedrosa (Orange), Marquez (Red) and Lorenzo (Blue), with him putting the Honda's out front because he believes they have an advantage over the Yamahas this year. The last caricature is his trademark yellow color, and his character is "struggling" to reach out for the first three. How cool is that for a guy that should have an Ego the size of his garage (or equal to Stoner)?

I must say that is funny!

He has scored more points than Stoner has this year. At least he's not a quitter.

I doubt that statement would be true if KC was still racing. Rossi is barley outpacing his bike from last year.

Another interesting stat is that Rossi is only 2 points better through the first 6 races this year as he was last year and he's in the exact same position Dovi was in (5th) standings wise. Although Dovi was on an inferior Satellite Tech 3 Yamaha compared to Rossi's full works bike. But, I think it's cool that he can poke fun at his own declining alien status, I'll give him that much LOL.

ok drone number 2. stoner retired he didnt quit big difference. if he quit he would have stopped racing after the indy crash. instead he came back and made the field look foolish at philip island. also it is very possible that if he didnt crash he would have won the whole thing but if my aunt had balls she would be my uncle. he didnt retire because he wasnt winning he retired because he didnt like the prez of motogp and he didnt enjoy it. Is there any question that if he didnt retire rossi would be even further back. not in any racing persons mind.
