BBC: Matt Roberts sees Simoncelli as the potential surprise

In his BBC Sport blog the British broadcaster’s new main presenter of MotoGP, Matt Roberts, weighed up the early pre-season prospects following the first Test in Malaysia.

Speaking about the San Carlo Honda Gresini rider Marco Simoncelli, Roberts said: “The surprise package could be Marco Simoncelli, who was quickest in the first pre-season test at Sepang, Malaysia. And if you're after a dark horse for a surprise place on the podium, my tip is Hiroshi Aoyama.”
