Rossi starting his assault on the title for real. Gonna be a much bigger player than most think I suspect. You don't forget how to win races overnight, nor do you discover a huge wealth of talent you never had before.. They'll be little between the front 3 this year though the honda is a slight technological favourite. The big question is who will Marquez the human cannonball favour most, better hope it's not you!

He knows he is the underdog of the four, whether his fans or the media think so you can read it in his comments. Personally I can't see him taking the title this year but I'd be surprised if he didn't snatch at least one win - and that would be sufficient to make it a good deal for Yamaha to bring him back.

It's good to see that they do share settings too, good on Jorge for being fair and open despite what happened all those years ago with the garage wall.

Stoner is GONE, he has nothing to do with Rossi at this time. No reason to even bring him up. It's old and boring at this point. Were about to see the best year ever in Moto GP, and people want to bring in retired Racers. Rossi's challenge is with himself to get back to top form, compete with his team mate, and stay in front off all Honda's. Stoner is the past, Rossi is still the present and future of Moto GP. Anyways I'm not even a huge Rossi fan, but bringing up Stoner everytime Rossi says something is not adding any current value to discussions of Moto GP 2013. STONER IS GONE......................

Why bring up the wall when it wasn't about settings per se. Using different equipment brought about the wall. Rossi shared his data when Lorenzo came to Yamaha. Let's not forget that.

Nonetheless.....I can't wait for this weekend.

re: "However he got a better response by going in a different direction during the final Jerez test - when he set a faster lap time than the young Spaniard on the two days to feature dry running."

of course. 'cause like i've said in the past, rossi (and spies and now grinner) deliberately exploit in their riding styles a physical law known as conservation of angular moment. no, lorenzo's settings won't work. but we already saw a season's worth of evidence when ben was surreptitiously being forced into using them and spent all last year wobbling... that is when bits weren't flying every which way and ricocheting off spectator foreheads.

re: "For me it is quite difficult to ride exactly with his setting"

yeah, no sh%t.

re: "but the M1 is very suitable for different styles, because at the base it is an easy bike to bring to the limit."

god bless you furusawa, burgess, rossi and the 7 year span 2004-2010. oh and god bless the (now depleted) yamaha coffers. spent like mutha.

@Realist, Yes you are right about the wall everyone seems to forget, but most likely they're just sheep without the ability to think for themselves or do their own research. The wall was brought up in 2008 initially because Rossi had decided the year before in 2007! to switch to Bridgestone while Lorenzo was still using the Michelins and the two tire manufacturers would/could not have their tire data leaked to each other.
