This isn't about Rossi, but for all those that keep posting about the collusion and conspiracies. You guys are probably (be honest) the guys that said Rossi "burnt" his bridges at Honda and Yamaha. Well guess what? Yamaha took him back. Why? You will find out in 2013.
And Claes let me re-write your last post.
Hi "Jenky" just because Stoner was the only fast rider on the Ducati, does not mean others can't be.
lol.

Remember the statement from Ezpeleta the week before Assen, "I want to assure all his supporters that next year Valentino will be back at the front fighting for the win"

Well despite people pouring scorn on it, I said at the time that this is the guy who runs the show and when he says something will happen, it happens!

The whole Dorna, Rossi, Spies, Yamaha (or whoever at Yamaha was involved) affair was a dirty business and a disgrace to ANY so-called sport.

These days, it seems your face has to fit regardless of your riding skills! Like it or not, Valentino is Mr. MotoGP and has a massive amount of power, more than any other rider there I would think and rightly so with 9 world titles to his name. It is who you are and what you bring with you that puts you in the top spots. Riding skill and ability are a bonus!!

I cant see Dorna letting Dani run away with the show next year. Expect some sort of rule or tire change. Dani is the wild card thats not supposed to be, hes not Marc Marquez, the next MotoGP god, hes not Lorenzo, arch nemesis to Marquez, and hes not Vale. Valentino is just there to fill seats of the yellow fandom who have not become disillusioned, Vale will have better setup/tire life, but he wont be on the best bike, and Lorenzo will get preference courtesy of Jarvis. A shame Honda wouldnt give him a factory bike at Gresini, but to be honest, I dont think Dorna want Honda destroying Yamaha this year.

Dorna need Yamaha vs Honda, and the only thing keeping that the way it is are the current set of tires, and as of now, Jorge will be lucky to get any wins this year.

I cant see how Gresini wouldnt have wanted Rossi, I have to imagine the powers that be needed him at Yamaha, and Ben needed to be shown the door, hated and despised in order to let Vale back in the back door.

Hi
Face it Dorna is paying for Rossi to be at Yamaha, and Yamaha get free publicity for peanuts, Rossi did burn bridges but if someone paying the guy why should Yamaha turn him back, they'r not rolling in money
Cheers Claes
