Seems Rossi is showing a lot of BS this year with his let's stick together promise on his helmet

actually the bike that won the mosr was the YZR-M1 not the D16

the d16 won 24 times 23 stoner 1 capriex
the yzr-m1 won 39 times 21 times rossi 18 times Lorenzo
check your facts before you say anything please

ha ha ,love to hear this puppet jarvis tryin to back peddle,early in the season his mantra was ,rossi wont be back at yam,we dont need him etc blah blah,he has no chance in returning.the background talk he now refers to,are talks way above his pay grade, by yam top brass and rossi,then yam told him to make it happen, ha ha.this man hates rossi,probably because rossi always went above his head to get things done,with his jap friends.

It will have been 3 years since Rossi was on the Yamaha riding at full strength. It is more than plausible that the competition may have just moved on since then...

It's hard to tell since everyone blames the Ducati for Rossi's lack of pace, but before his injury Lorenzo was still improving and Stoner wasn't on a Honda either.

Personally, I think it is very interesting that Rossi is heading back to Yamaha, not least because there is a lot at stake for his reputation. If you think him struggling at Ducati has left him with his tail between his legs, being beaten by Lorenzo at Yamaha will probably be worse...

So respect where it is due, because I actually think THIS is his biggest challenge yet.

I for one actually hope to see Rossi winning races from the word go on the Lorenzo developed Yamaha.It will prove once and for all that he only wins with the best bike.Which is exactly what his fans have been spouting about Stoner for the last 6 years.
