Rossi going back to Honda? I personally don't think so, Well Jorge maybe, Honda might offers him the same or higher amount of money than Rossi's. Honda is good with that and makes Jorge virtually couldn't refuse the offers.

Yamaha top man made it clear is wants to keep ROSSI so jorge wil ben on a DUCATI OR HONDA next year, i also think that HONDA already has STONER, So good luck JORG you wil be on a DUCATI SOON, i also thought it was really bad taste for the yamaha bosses to say they want to keep rossi at all cost.

It could be Splitsville for the mighty Fiat Yamaha duo as they are both taking away points from each other. Had it been one of them there, that rider would probably have gotten 2 wins. It makes no sense to have 2 riders changing at interval the 1st and 2nd positions. Sooner or later they may push they other further down the points ladder if Stoner or Dani manages to get in between like at Jerez.

Jorge may be the one to go as he wants equal terms as Rossi, meaning money. I can see him getting everything but the money. He is more likely to get Rossi type money from a desparate Honda as he showed them that he can fight and beat the other "Aliens". Which manufacturer would refuse him.

phff!! It's all pointless what ever the top 5 ride they will be the top 5 plain and simple.. I am more surprised by them wanting to keep colin??? Surely they have enough experiance in the Main team and a year of BS so they should bring somebody up or over maybe like Simon or Luthi. Ditto Suzuki who should ge a young gun inplace of Capirex next year!! :?

I don't really think that the Yamaha factory are too bothered who comes first or second because in the factory's eyes the manufacturer's championship is the most important to them because it helps them sell bikes.

Yamaha has got 2 brilliant riders and will be loving that their bikes are being ridden by them. Probably not a good idea to split that team but it looks as though it may happen.

Hey fellas..my take on the interview is that yamaha want to keep all their riders period! Rossi's name sells yamaha! period...and he is atop his game! I am not so concern with what lorenzo does because he will be good wherever he goes! I think to keep Ben Spies they will have to commit a 100% factory bike for him next year in tech 3. Ben is not going to be contented being just the best satellite guy out there!!Ben cannot acheive what Lorenzo did in his first year because he is not on a factory bike like Lorenzo was! Jorge is proven and at this point yamaha will not want to lose him! their back up is Ben if JL moves on but if not they run a large risk of losing BSpies, regardless of contract!
