Md Zane ,,,,the old saying you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink, rossi and jb can only ask or request changes to be made if they are not listened to so be it,remember you cannot polish a turd only sprinkle glitter on it.

I read a posting early inthe season that vale would only ride inside his limits and would push it when the duke reashed 105% of his rivals.
Well in my view he is just going through the motions.

re: "“We were pretty optimistic for the end, but when we put on the soft, it triggered a lot of chatter and I wasn't able to improve enough to be further up the grid."

jesuschrist, it's october and we're STILL talking chatter...!? meanwhile over in WSBK, pirelli intros an entirely different size of rubber and everybody's dropping a 10th here and a 10th there.

What's wrong with MotoGP...

Unfortunately it is laregly around this guy - and through no fault of his own (fantastic rider.

I still enjoy the sport, but for sure its changing and if you are really into seeing the best bikes possible pushed hard then its not change for the better.

Due to MotoGPs commercilisation we have a sport that follows its fans rather than visa versa. What's wrong with that?.....

Imagine if there were (and scarily there are) enough of the fan base to impact on the diection of the sport with attitudes like following.....

Nobody knows until when Rossi will want to continue, maybe he does not want to do as Loris who tried until the end to fight, he just whant a motorcycle even if it was a slow one, Yamaha Perhaps is the last chance for Rossi and yet after having done so much for the sport for me that gave me s
