...and if he ever decides to come back, he will find a warm welcome waiting.
Who am i, I can only hope. I really don't think he belongs in the v8 racing..
And to the haters, too much love will kill you, and so will hate.

Don't give capirossi all the cedit. As soon as Rossi moved to Ducati he became the "Tire Ambassoador" and still is. They changed tires many times to try to suit him and the GP11/11.1 through .46/GP12, added weight for Ducati and it didn't help.

If a tire is designed for the Yamaha JLo will stomp the field.

Nice one Crash. Undoubtedy the truth is being exposed bit by bit and thanks for the contribution.
On to 2013. Rock on. Sepang 1 testing will be telling a tale within its own right. A tale of George,Marc,Dani and who knows? Ben and Dovi,I suspect.

Nice work blaming the tyre development as a reason for not winning the championship, Dani had his best ever season so they cant have been all bad!

The fact is the other Honda riders took the time to test the new spec of front tyre during the races it was available before it came the standard. Repsol Honda spat the dummy and refused. If they weren't so stubborn I think Dani could have got used to it earlier and pushed Lorenzo even closer.

How can all but two riders praise Bridgestone's tyres from last year, its not like the Honda is that much different to everyone else!?!
