Dont you fans of Moto GP think that a rider can improve, and develope, or does he have a cut off point, or peaks at a point in his career when maybe a particular bike does not suit his riding style, I see no reason why Dovi cant continue to get even faster, more consistantly on the Yamaha, just as a certain ex multi World Champion is doing with a different bike.

What I see is that Yamaha has great traction control. That is how Dovi likes his bike. Nakamoto compared styles and said that Dovi runs TC at maximum, Casey controls the slip by wrist and Dani something between.

OK and what kind of rider is Rossi? Traction control? Its getting old guys. Lorenzo beat Kenny Roberts around a dirt track. Pretty sure that had no TC. Dani recently said the bike is on a razor's edge even with TC. Too much anti wheelie and the bike is slow. You all seem to forget these guys came up through the two strokes before MotoGP and won titles in the lower classes(Dovi, Jorge, Dani).If you can't beat Rossi without TC you can't beat him with it. Didn't Ducati just put more electronics on the GP12 at Aragon?Wheels inline riding would seem to be a result of TC but that style has also been around for years. Max Biaggi comes to mind, but 4 stroke power proved TC a necessity for GP's and Rossi was the first guy to get it and has the most experience with it. Not point and click like you think
