I hear what y'all saying,but his focus should be racer first. He sounds like a downbeat economist/politician right now.
Doesn't suit his past style and reputation.
Lorenzo and Stoner didn't get into his head....they tore it off.

Michellin question?
Ducati and Suzuki would have six bikes on the grid each today if Rossi did not speak out against Bridgestone during his Michellin / M1 days!
Today Rossi would have the options of a winning Ducati, Suzuki, or even a Kawa!
Dorna should rule each manufacturer to team-up with different tire manufacture.
Dunlop, Pirelli, Metzler, B/stone, Michellin...and others
More major manufactures will draw more sponsors, will draw more interest, will lead to advancment, and spread the costs.

PeterPT some info for ya!
FACT 2011: Stoner has 1561 points, Rossi 1539.
FACT 2010: Stoner had 1211 points, Rossi had 1400
FACT 800 era: Ducati 2007, Yamaha 2008/2009/2010, Honda 2011
FACT 800 placing 2007: (CS 367/DP 242/VR 241)
FACT 800 placing 2008: (VR 373/CS 280/DP 249)
FACT 800 placing 2009: (VR 306/JL 261/DP 234/CS 220
FACT 800 placing 2010: (JL 383 /DP 245/VR 233/CS 225)

FACT Stoner had more points because unequivacably he had the best bike from center curve, exit and velocity. FACT Stoner hands down was the best rider on the best bike in 2011. FACT Rossi had the worst year on the worst bike of his career..even in 2006 and 2007 he managed to get on the podium and even win a few when Yamaha was not at its best. The FUTURE: once DUCATI gets it together in 2012 Honda will be a one song wonder!! and hey...if MotoGP goes to CRT...Stoner will back track and ride a CRT bike like he back tracked on going to Japan!

As Stoner uses 'less" electronic control than others, does this mean he is being nobbled by Dorna?

My view is thet Moto Gp should have minimal technical specifications (like midget speedcars in the US and Australia have).

Under current safety paramaters, allow an upper engine capacity limit, 2 wheels, maximum/minimim wheelbase weight, wheel diameter.

This enables 'free thinkers' to build and race 'prototype' bikes in THE premier class - not to be dragged back to "sanitised" racing as is being proposed and is happening in 2013.

I think Jerry Burgess would welcome the opportunity to design a chassis (CRT bike) to his own spec without having to go requesting updates/modifications/revisions via a factory team!
Jerry could even sell his chassis designs to other teams.
Potentially, he could be the most in demand person in MotoGP!

Yes what it says about one is he will grasp any publicity and will try anything to believe he still can cut it at the top.
Meanwhile the other is on holidays.

Posted by reality.

or reality it says that rossi is interested in the future direction of motogp and motorcycle sport in general, and all stoner can think of is how the CRT rules are going to affect him. It all depends who your rooting for would'nt you agree ?
Funny thing is when stoner opens his mouth, noboddy listens.

Rossi is right look at the grid this year it was dismale,its not ideal but its the way forward. moto 2 has been so good the last 2 seasons we need full grids there is no battle at the back of the feild to get points.
