now if thats true then

Vale 3-4 races and he will be fighting for a win

BYE BYE DOVi (not a champ material he will always be consistent but cannot win races)
Ben go to WSBK

And if AUDI put a hell of $$ and in 2 yrs duc is sorted then it could be worse for jap becuz duc is fastest it just need to be agile
more bad news for VALe but it is started with IF :)

I think the last couple of years have taught Rossi how to lose. He has learnt humility. This will make him stronger but more balanced in his attitude. If he is no.2, so be it.

He will come back determined to win but realise there is no shame in losing to a rider like Lorenzo.

The Ducati experiment was a disaster as he went against his original instincts (c.f. his book) but now he will fulfil his desire to end his motogp career with Yamaha.

I look forward to competitive racing.

Should be an interesting season for 2013, should Rossi go to Yamaha.. Might have some good racing between him and Lorenzo, but not sure if it will fix the problem they are currently having with the race's being close from the top 4 back...just have to wait and see I guess....race on!!!!!!!!!!

He may have one or two good races on the Yam, but he will not be winning the title... No way.

So much for "I have no interest in leaving Ducati, we will make this work..."... PFFFT! HAHAHA

As for the first poster, Dovi has 3 straight podiums on the satellite Yam and 4 podiums in total this year... Tech3 are NOT a new team, and he's already given them their best season ever just about. I bet he would've won on the factory bike. Anything to make yourselves feel better I guess. So I guess results really DO mean NOTHING!

it makes sense Ducati signing Rayden so early. Rossi leaving the team will be a major morale blow for the team. I think Rossi should stay with Ducati if he wins the title next year with Yamaha its gonna be just another title and people will say he had the best bike. If he stays with Ducati and win the title in 1 or 2 years time his legacy will be much bigger than winning 2013 with Yamaha. I feel for Dovi as next years Yamaha won't be the same for the satellite teams. Hope he goes back to HRC!

And let's. It hear anyone talk about Rossi being a quitter!.. He wants to go out trying to be the worlds best then good luck to him. If he stays with Ducati then the next two years may be a waste. I'll respect him no matter what, but let's face it, if you had two years left, wouldnt you want them to be possibly the best you could get out of them?

Man Motogp is going to be dire next year!
with Casey leaving and also probably Dovi and Spies its just going to be Lorenzo domination. really hope Rossi can be competitive again.

IF Rossi leaves Duc, Crutchlow to Duc, Spies gone, dovi gone. Then Tech 3 is ????? Bradl.
The endless theories. Lets go racing and stop the drama.
MotoGP losing all the up and coming riders. Oh No.
