Have you noticed how skinny Rossi is compared to the other guys? Why?

His job is to wrestle a 250bhp motorbike around a track?

Ok, so hes not a stick by any means but he is thinner than the rest.

I think it shows that its more about 'moving' your weight about rather than size and power dont you think?

Absolutely. The camera on the seat of Rossi's bike shows how much he moves around and that as well as his size is a tribute to how much body movement and position play a part in a rider's success.

I don't think the rest of the drivers are exactly fat.

You need to be as slim as possible (but strong enough to handle the bike) to gain advantage with the difference in weight between the riders.

The bike's weight limit is stated without the rider on (in Motogp and 250cc, not in 125cc)
