So the unchanged Mistral chassis will be 4 years old next year and losing another 0.5-1s per lap to the 7th+ generation of Suter/Kalex/FTR etc chassis. Bad move, unless they are going to start from scratch with a new bike which is what everyone has been saying they need to do.

I thought the title implied he were going to see "Valentino Rossi" try a Freddie Spencer & try and win a Moto2 title & MotoGP title in the one year. That would be awesome to watch.

"Team boss Herve Poncharal, who has a record of nurturing young French talent having previously worked with Olivier Jacque, Sylvain Guintoli and Mike di Meglio, feels Rossi has a bright future ahead of him."
One retired after being dumped, one in WSBK after being dumped and one being shoved from one team to the next in moto2 after being dumped.

The track record suggests the future may not be so bright.
