So who are we going to see standing at the podium during the year? and how is the final standing going to look like? To recap, the only rider leaving for MotoGP was the 2014 Moto2 champion Tito Rabat. Up from Moto3 comes the following: 2015 champ Danny Kent, runner-up Miguel Oliviera, Efren Vasquez. Luca Marini (Rossi's half brother on his mothers side) also joins, but I have no idea how fast he is. Marini had a 2013 WC in Moto3 and one in Moto2 last year; both times he failed to score points (DNF, 21st). For reference, only Johann Zarco (8), Alex Rins (2), Sam Lowes (1), Thomas Luthi (1), Jonas Folger (2), and Xavier Simeon (1) won a Moto2 race in 2015 (besides Rabat). The same "usual suspects" also did a clean sweep of the 2nd spot. Can the 'upstarts' from Moto3 pose a threat and not just grab podiums, but even wins and take a swing for the championship?
