Fully agree that he should get the surgery done now. It is obvious Yamaha are not going to release him from his contract early to allow him to test the Ducati so he should think of himself & the future. I think the way Yamaha are behaving after all he has done for them could backfire on their brand and do them more harm than good, especially after Ducati have been sporting and have released Stonor early

It's not Rossi's fault that idiot Ezpeleta is ruining the sport and has made MotoGP so reliant on his presence, even in a year when he is not challenging for the championship (the grids should be unrigged and twice the size). Wayne Gardner's advice would appear to make lot of sense.

He's got nothing to gain this year so why not finish early and be ready for next year, he's done more than enough for Yamaha. How many R1's and R6's have they shifted thanks to him. Colin has helped ship many Diversion 600's too :) (kidding)

True to form, its crap advice from Gardner. Rossi was fast enough to match Lorenzo's pace at Sachsenring and Misano, there's no reason why he can't score a podium or two yet. Wait and see how the next couple of races go.

He doesn't have anything to prove with a Yamaha but he'll need to be at the top of his game for next year.

MotoGP has been so dire this year they need the big names there to pull in the crowds thanks to the woeful running of the sport by Dorna.
