"it is much different and Rossi will have to work hard to not have to fight that bike during the whole of a race and to keep his tires"

@Prof X,

Rossi didnt look like he was struggling too much with the bike at the first test, a statement his times would support.

As for tyre wear, he didnt do a race simulation so no one (even rossi) knows how that will pan out (although I would bet rossi, JB & Yam have an idea...they are busy talking clutches NOT tires).

You seem to make statements suggesting certainty about many unkowns...dont expect rossi to not win a race before half season is just as credible a statement I would suggest.

@ Martin

A “good” Chef cooks by taste, not necessarily by a book.

@ prof-x

I'll take that bet. You and sud best be prepared to put up. Also, I'll believe Furusawa's word over the supposition of people NOT in the know. Fight the bike? Does it look like he's fighting that bike hard? He found nearly 2 seconds JUST by switching bikes. Against his philosophy? Do you even know what you're talking about?

So reading between the lines. Lorenzo has spoken to his friend Biaggi and said something like 'How the feck did he the ride I wanted Dozi 'cos I can beat him'. Or words that affect.

So basically if Rossi wins a race its because of Bridgestone modifying the tires just for him (like they must have been the last 2 years... oh wait)
but if Jorge or Dani wins its pure skill and Rossi never had it?

Well Rossi is the Bridgestone representative this year, have to think that counts for something, kind of like Loris being the safety rep last year. ha ha ha.

& yes, Bridgestone modified the tires in 2012 which gave Jorge the championship, when Honda figured it out, Dani pretty much owned Jorge. Just like Bridgestone modified the tires in 2009 and gave Yamaha domination for 1.5 years.

& Rickky, Jorge is overrated, he only had his second championship because of Bridgestone, and his first was down to Casey being on the Duc and Dani + Rossi being injured. Jorge is fast, Jorge beat Rossi his first time out, he might even be better than Rossi, but the tires are what determine the winners and the losers in MotoGP.

btw, if Bridgestone had made tires for Ducati in 2011 and 2012, the whole charade would have blown up in Dorna's face. MotoGP is more important than Rossi or Ducati. Doing as much would have completely shown how manipulative the tires can be, it would have made it unsafe for Honda and Yamaha, and Ducati would have blown away both of them and people would have known what has really been going on since 2009 when MotoGP decided its better to have King Rossi, the guy who pulls in the crowd vs an outside like Casey Stoner, whom even the commentators did not like.

@Realist, just wait till the first round buddy, and prepare to put your foot in to your mouth. The only way Rossi will get near the podium is if hes on a modified 2011 bike, with the same electronics. Jorge's bike is not Rossi friendly, Jorge does not race like Rossi, Rossi will be blown away on the brakes or crash if hes on Jorge's bike. Jorge will be much faster over a race than Rossi if Rossi is not on Rossi's own bike.

Rossi cannot adapt, this much was made clear when he went to Ducati, Nicky Hayden is faster on a Ducati than the spoiled King Rossi. Rossi gets promoted because stupid people like to believe in heroes, not because hes actually the best out there.

@ Prof-X

You live in an alternate universe in which the logical cannot return you to reality. You make up stuff out of nowhere (..the M1 not being Rossi friendly? Jorge not racing like Rossi when, in fact, aside from the racecraft aspect, those two look like dancing twins on bikes...Catalunya 2009 was BEAUTIFUL! ...Rossi can't adapt just because he didn't get on with the Ducati? etc.), and your logical deduction is non-existent. I'm tempted to believe that your posts are sarcasm at its finest.

have fun believing in your hero realist. Because your ability to reason clearly does not exist :)

Rossi will get owned by Dani and Lorenzo this year, have fun watching.
