Some of course would say, he's just another ex racer, who managed to get a lucrative pension working for Uncle Caramelo.
To me he's the Dani Pedrosa of the end of the 90's and early 2000's, good but no crown.

I never liked the guy due to the infamous Harada-episode. But he's a rather known face to anyone that's followed the sport for a while.

Not saying there's anything wrong in having followed the sport only since a few years obviously..

To be fair to Dani, he's a lot nicer guy than as my daughter who is a Rossi fan says about Capirossi (Crappyrossi.)
