moto1 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

So people which will be the first 4-stroke to win a Grand Prix?
The big 'H' Maybe?
Will Haga ride the 4-stroke Yam?
I know Ukawa and Rossi will ride the Honda.

I have not been following the 4 stroke developments but would like to think that Honda with their previous experience could do it.
Haga looks the obvious choice for the Yamaha.
I think the first rider to do it may not be one of the "stars" - I cannot see Rossi, for instance, despite his brilliance adapting to a four stroke quickly.
What details have been confirmed so far?

I'm not sure who will win next season, even leaving it as 4-strokes only to see who is quicker. It will be mostly down to who builds the better bike, not the better rider. For me that will most likely be Honda, just through reputation.

Haga is reported as probably riding for Suzuki in WSB next year. He is clearly not happy in GP. What is very strange is that Haga has not ridden the M1 yet, while Biaggi, Checa and Nakano have. strange when Haga was being promoted as the number 1 for the four-stroke next year, to say the least.
As for a GP win next year, possible but not very likely. There are still so many variables to consider, so many of them totally unknown. Tyres, suspension, chassis, power delivery..... they may do good flash laps at certain tracks, but for a full race? Rossi and Biaggi will only switch if the M1 and RC211V are clearly superior over a whole race distance to the YZR and NSR.
