@Ich I did not say Rossi crashed because of pressure, so please don't twist my words.

Yes you are speculating that he could have won the championship in 2010 had he not broken his leg, but I could speculate that JL would have trounced him regardless :P

Rossi wasnt even pushing when he crashed in Mugello. It was a cold tyre outlap issue. It has nothing to do with pressure.

But i also dont think he is sandbagging. This is the reality. Pedro and Jlo are faster now. And i also think the Honda is the best bike by far so vale is not even on the best equipment. Its just Jorge makes the Yamaha look better. Lets hope VR at least can win some races. WC will be dani or jlo probably.

@HRC: and I wasn't saying he would have won either :), just repeating that if one speculates that he was under massive pressure (as you did, which is possible, but how can you be sure?) or that he crashed because he was under immense pressure (as someone did and still think, which is most likely not true), then one could even say that he could have.. and bla bla bla..

OK now, argument settled, sorry for having misread your post.

no worries rossi you are just disappointed with how the test went once you get more familiar with the bike you will start topping the times i say you be in the hunt for podium for the first three races and then you should be ready to start challenging for wins.

Valentino probably wants everyone to think he can only manage fourth fastest, but when it comes to a race, then it will all kick off big style!! He's not the kind of man to go all out until in a race and he knows just what he is doing, just you wait and see!!

I myself think that the RCV might have a slight edge over the M1. Of course it's just my opinion . I think that Jorge Lorenzo and Dani P are very close in speed. Meaning on the same equipment I think they are probably close in lap time. Dani went faster on 5 of the 6 days so far and the fact that Marquez is as fast over a lap as Rossi/Lorenzo that is why I feel the Honda might be faster

The BIG problem is the


As Ben Spies found last year, Yamaha seem only capable of producing a reliable bike for ONE rider only

This will hurt Yamaha worldwide SALES is they don't IMPROVE RELIABILITY
