@the bad Guy
80 secs.
They did try to fine tune the bike ,didnt they?
And you've seen Rossi on a wet track, being at the top in fps, tat shows that he does try hard to stay at the front.
While Honda brought new bike and new engine to test, did u see what Ducati brought?At this rate,what would you expect someone to do, other than look out for other options?

Do you even know why casey went to Honda from his c'ship winning Ducati? And why he didnt win again until he changed the Manufacturer?

I think it would have been great for rossi to do the business on the ducati but the bike is not up to it, im surprised that rossi would go back to yamaha but at least we can look forward to some competitive racing again.

I really am bored of hearing people talking about Stacey Moaner retiring, never liked the mardy girl, it wasnt so many years ago that he was throwing the bike at the scenery every race, his success has been down to good timing, being on the right bike at the right time, bye bye Stacey, dont let the door hit you on the way out

I'm not sure about that, I think that Rossi has realized his limitations and Lorenzo has matured. If Rossi does well and is competitive then he'll have more say on making sure he gets the same or similar "go fast" parts. If he doesn't then that will limit the amount of pull/weight he'd have with Yamaha brass. If Rossi beats Lorenzo consistently then you may have an issue with JLo throughing fits but can't see if from Rossi.

@Realist
Wasn't it Rossi himself that said the Rider was more important the the bike? Stoner put the bike on the podium and won a championship on Ducati,Rossi has no grounds to defend his performance in the last two seasons..but his fanboys will continue to defend him blaming everything on the bike and nothing on the rider.
Only the GOAT when riding better equipment then the rest of the field!!!
Take off the Yellow Blinders!

@ Pedro boat cruisrs to the title

You "assume" that there will in-fighting and instability and you "assume" that Rossi won't get the same parts as Lorenzo. Fortunately assumptions aren't fact. Rossi's bike will be just as competitive as Lorenzo's.

So all bets are on then.......

MotoGP is now no better than WRC, its completely lost direction, very soon, very few will really care irrespective of Rossi

C'mon enough of this Honda got a new bike for Laguna, Ducati got nowt. Rossi and Hayden have been riding the 2013 bike since the beginning of the season, Hector is riding the GP 12
