Actually, if it WAS up to Valentino, then Lorenzo would never have got on the Yamaha in the first place, & after he did get on it, Rossi would have got him chucked off it in 2010. Rossi tried to veto Lorenzo off the bike, but failed.

He did manage to put the kibosh on Stoner getting the chance to ride it before Lorenzo though.

We'll see if the Yamaha is "Valentino's bike" or not soon enough. Right now it is most definitely Lorenzo's Yamaha.

Good for Rossi hopefully he'll get a decent result this race as half a second from the leaders isn't too bad. Dovi should thank Rossi for doing the grunt work as he may (again may) have given Ducati a route to improve there bike. Let's see if the remaining races Rossi can start moving up the board and get a few podium spots before the end of the season.

Of course it is Lorenzos Yamaha.The 1000cc bike has had no input whatsoever from Rossi or Burgess.So lets cut the smack talk!
And Talent fan,you are quite right.If it was up to Rossi,Lorenzo would have had the heave-ho from Yamaha in 2010.The guy just doesnt want a team mate who has the ability to beat him.Just wait and see till next year.He wont be able to dominate Lorenzo and i wonder how that will affect him.I bet he has his bricklayers already booked to come and rebuild the wall.
