Where are the people now that were defending Yamaha's choice for Wataru Yoshikawa. I even read a post of someone saying he would give Stoner a hard time (when Stoner was quoted saying Wataru Yoshikawa is a nobody)

This is !!not!! a Valentino Rossi replacement, he even is a second behind the next riding chicane :?

Yesterday there was talk of lack of grip issues due to the hot track surface. This morning they are all slower on what I presume is a colder surface. :?

yah, thats what I thought also, I hope he can get a good setup on a harder compound, it may not be this race but I hope in the coming race he has to work on this ASAP, he really needs to work on this. its very crucial. I wont be expecting too much from this race, its pretty clear that he is stuggling on a harder rear compound.

I'm sorry, but how can you expect a test rider to be fighting for the positions Rossi was? People are slagging him off like he personally disappointed them.

The team had a hard time finding a replacement, for such a multitude of reasons that I doubt we as fans will ever know half of them. Going with a test rider after all that is a logical choice. Sure it doesn't add to the spectacle for the fans and both test riders are running around the back of the field, likely to get lapped in the race. But for the manufacturer it is the most sensible choice. He won't do anything silly, he won't destroy the bike or the engine. He collects a bit of data and they fulfill they're obligations. Easy as that

@calm down I'm happy to slag off Yamaha's choice of Whatareyou Whothefukareya thanks very much. Stoner has won a world championship and beaten Rossi more times than anyone else, but people still slag HIM off! So I'm proud to say what a sh*t idea it was for the premier team in the top class of motorcycle sport to pull someone out of the retirement home for failed kamikaze pilots to ride Rossi's bike. I say with a clear conscience that his performance so far has been an absolute debacle and it is an abomination and an affront to fans and the other riders that he was chosen. Thank you for the opportunity to give Yamaha an unapologetic barracking.

Let's see, make sure you are here when the race finishes in case..... It's so easy to say these things and disappear when you were wrong.

Garry McCoy would probably have ridden Rossi's bike for free, paid his own airfare and hotel bills into the bargain and at least put on a half-decent show.

McCoy, the first rider to score points in MotoGP on an 800cc bike, was available the moment Rossi landed in the gravel at Le Mans. He seemed such a long shot at the time given the other potential choices - Edwards, Crutchlow, Spies etc - but now McCoy seems like an obvious choice who was totally skipped over in favour of, as Stoner put it, "a nobody". And McCoy is actually a fair few years younger than the old Japanese geezer who got the ride!
