Not a very positive vibe from Rossi. I'm starting to think that now at his age it might just be too tough for him to fight with those Spaniards, I hope I'm wrong though!

Le Mans is next and that's where he got two podiums on the Ducati fingers crossed he can have a very strong weekend there!

Expecting an yamaha win in Le-mans,, double happy if that winner would be Rossi... Hoping for a wet le-mans race for few reasons...
1. Relive Rossi-Stoner encounter.
2. To see how riders go about in wet this season specially MM, Cal and Rossi.
3. To see ducati mixing it up coming close to the front.
4. To see how dovi will respond on ducati in wet...

Yamaha seriously lost some grip in their bike dominance in trio years of his absence... Time for yamaha to rev up and post back a stiff challenge else I fear this would become a honda season...

Sooner of later Yamaha were going to feel the knock on effects of choosing Lorenzo over Rossi, the cracks in lorenzos development skills are starting to show.
I fear that by the time Rossi has got the development heading back in the right direction Honda (with Marquez) will have already got too much of a hold on the title and it will be too little too late for Yamaha.

Jl has led development to his style.he not a late braker like rossi.best braker in motogp is rossi.so losing that braking ability is causing rossi and yamaha problem. 2-3 yrs ago yam was best in braking and corner entry but now hondas r way ahead is braking stability.u can look yesterday's race hondas were doing stoppies and turn 1 .now yam only has corner speed which is jl talent.
corner exit,top speed, accle, braking all belong to honda.
yam need to go rossi way for their previous ultimate bike which only lag behind in top speed.

I'm confused. I thought that the M1 was virtually unchanged, and this is why Lorenzo won his championships.

Now Rossi is not winning and all of the sudden it's Lorenzo's fault.

@CRT - It's because the development has slowly gone more and more towards Lorenzo, in 2010 Rossi brike his leg and Lorenzo won on a bike made perfect by Rossi and JB and had no competition, in 2011 Stoner got on a decent bike and schooled Lorenzo on how to ride, in 2012 Stoner was injured and Lorenzo got lucky again, this year the Yamaha is the worst it's been since Rossi left and Pedrosa and even more so Marquez are the boys to beat and you can already see the pressure getting to Lorenzo.

stop bashing rossi.he need time.Jl has turned yam into his style which can do fast corner speed. it bas lost its braking strength that y honda r closing in. earlier honda runs away in STRAIGHT but yam catch up In braking but now only yam can catch honda is in flowing corners.jerez has2-3 flowing corners.so honda is far ahead of yam.le mans to is honda(not a fact my opinion) becuz of stat stop corners.
Rossi need good braking bike he need time to turn his yam into that if factory still listening to him.
I hope best for vale .few wins this season is my ph test for vale
I always wanted him to retire in 2010.perfect ending beating old boys and young guns chapter close buttttt.....
