Sounds like much ado about nothing, to be honest. If the Yam engineers can still see all the riders data, they can just go put Rossi/Lorenzos settings on the other riders bike and just not tell them what was changed. Not only that, but Tech 3 has access to all the settings as well. So a Tech 3 rider can go and get Rossi/Lorenzos settings and then Rossi/Lorenzo can get them from the Tech 3 team. Really sounds like this new 'change' isn't really a change at all and is just being blown out of proportion.

At any rate, last year Lorenzo said Rossi copied his settings, so he should be happy about this.

"Rossi and Lorenzo stop sharing data"

Should read - "Rossi demands that Yamaha stop showing Lorenzo his settings"
Rossi now has zero excuses if Lorenzo beats him, could be a pivotal year. Roll on round one !

Ok..... time for a little education here.... Rossi and Lorenzo set their bikes up differently as a base setting. They are different weights and ride in a different manner. If you guys think that the bikes are set up the same, then think again. Shared data might point out the direction if there is a problem....
I was there at Estoril when Jorge smoked the field... Rossi struggled with grip all weekend... But Im sure Rossi didnt set up his bike to Jorge's base settings.
It doesnt matter what anyones settings are as long as you yourself are getting your own bike to work.

"Now Jorge has two years in MotoGP so everybody in the team are agreed that it is possible to make his own way."

i.e. Rossi has decided to stop sharing data.

I've been a bit surprised by Rossi the last couple of years. Last year he wanted to keep the wall up, complain that Lorenzo would get the same bike, and now he wants to stop sharing data. This is Rossi's what? 10th or 11th year in the top class? So why the changes now? Clearly he is threaten by Lorenzo.

It's obvious that he has lost any psychological advantage over Jorge - I would even say with Rossi's actions that it's on the other foot.

If Jorge wants to be the man at Yamaha than it's time for him to step up.
