If Rossi does end up back at Yamaha i dont blame him for it. But even if he does win again with Yamaha, it will prove that he needs the best kit inorder to win.

He couldnt even get close to doing what Casey did with it, and is even struggling to beat Hayden, and that will never be forgotten, especialy by Rossi himself.

Either way, he has had to eat a huge slab if humble pie, so maybe this will make him more more humble and have a btter attitude and opinion of other riders, so at least there might be some good come out of it.

I just hope for Rossi and his fans sake that he can still win on the Yamaha, otherwise all hell will break loose!

Ducati(in holland we call it stukgaatie) 2 years, were only stoner could win because of the trellis frame(all the other frames had absolutely no feel) only 1 time with all his years with ducati.
Rossi couldn't eighter just like stoner, wanna know why? HUMANS. both of them. need to feel!!! get it.

When Rossi lost his title in 2006 and 2007...the talk was he is a fading star! I remember well...

I also remember him taking the 2008 and 2009 title! Still the only successive winner of MGP titles within the last 12 years!!!!!!!! PS he was a contender in 2010 until the accident lest we forget.

Rossi will stay with Ducati but if he goes to yamaha then as he said money is not the objective. The dude wants to win again and yes, his best bet for that now is Yamaha! However his chance for cemented greatness lies in winning on the Ducati...not just races but the title!
I am a Rossi fan and Title with Ducati seems to be 2-3 years away (I was hoping sooner). At any rate interesting to see his decision.

I think this is what both Rossi and Ducati need.

Rossi needs to be on a good bike and go head to head against the best in class to help forget the last 2 years.

Ducati needs to focus on development with a solid satellite program and a young rider willing to take big risks and with Rossi gone they can afford to.

The big questions is how he will handle the pace that has elevated over the last few seasons. Jorge had some huge crashes lat year chasing Casey and hit another level this season. Will Vale be able to jump up to speed without learning some lessons the hard way like the other "aliens"? They've been riding in a different solar system then they were when Vale went to Bologna.

And why did Stoner leave Ducati? Why did Stoner increasingly drop the Ducati? Good luck Vale, wherever you decide to go, and let's hope for some exciting racing next year :)

In all fairness, going to yamaha is hard decision. He has put himself on the block, he could of stayed at Ducati and round around in 6th. You cant knock his spirit to be competitive again.
