“So seeing Valentino on a competitive bike - whether Honda, Yamaha or Ducati - will bring benefit to all riders and all teams. "

I repeat this one, because this is exactly what is wrong with motoGP today, and in the last 10 years. This guy sells t shirts, and somehow, people here still try to tell us that his markting potential had no weight whatsoever on this unheard cathering of a single rider? :? Benefir all riders and teams?? Jarvis couldnt' be more clear here! :-o

Lets just remember Valentino IS the GOAT and has been one of the reasons Moto GP is what it is.
Am slightly dismayed by some of the disrespectful comments made.
Lets celebrate and enjoy his presence on the grid.

I think he didn't start very well the new relationship with Vale. Jarvis, you should pay some respect to Vale. After all, he is the reason Yamaha is today in that position - Yamaha was total crap the previous years - was seeing the back of the big H, and he is the reason you have work today. Even if he is the one made the first step to you, it's humiliating to say that in public.

The arrogancy you show here is going to "hit" you sometime... Just pray to God to have Jorge healthy, otherwise you''ll kiss his a$$ for good results and the stone era you're seeing the back of the big H, might return!

Valentino: Are you sure you've made the right decision ???

Lorenzo is the clear favourite for the next two years but Rossi won't let him have it all his own way.

To those putting Rossi down I think you are very foolish, you should never ever write off a man who has achieved all that he has on a motorcycle. His talent hasn't suddenly disappeared.

Some horrible comments on here from people who clearly do not love motor racing. Valentino Rossi is a global superstar who surpasses his sport. There are precious few like this (Jordan, Bolt etc).

If MotoGP is unhealthy for any reason, it is most definately NOT because of Valentino, who brings with him viewers, sponsors, teams and manufacturers who want to be part of the show. This is why the best riders are in MotoGP, they want to test themselves against the best and that was Valentino.

He's had a tough couple of years and is showing a lot of humility returning to Yamaha, which I am certain a lot of people including Jorge Lorenzo did not expect to ever see happen (including myself).

There are some amazing riders in MotoGP and Valentino Rossi is still one of them. Enjoy watching all of these riders (Stoner especially as he is leaving) whilst you can.

“Valentino has an enormous global awareness and popularity. There is no doubt he did great things for the Yamaha brand and there is no doubt he can do still do great things for Yamaha and this sport."

Amen to that.

That's simply true - Rossi's branding sells stuff.

Quite what has gone on at Yamaha beyond that we won't know for a decade if then.

I can't imagine Jorge is quaking in his boots - He knows he'll be the guy to beat.

As for the posts about Rossi's 'humility'.
Be serious.

He IS still a class act.
He knows it and he has to keep believing it.
He really IS the GOAT and he won't do humility.

But is he the best at riding all the modern electronics? I doubt it.

Would he remain the GOAT if Stoner stayed?
That's probably the wrong question - By my reckoning they're equal but different.

The traction control up until 2006 at least was very undeveloped. Otherwise how the hell did they spin out every corner.

Now its just spoiling the racing.
