Such a perfectionist....he only got it right 2 out of 10 seasons....

If his standard is perfection, then he needs a padded room because there is no such thing as perfection.

The rest of us are dealing with our imperfect lives while he has quit something he was really good at (and used to enjoy) because he couldnt deal with the reality of what the sport is and just enjoy it for what it is.

Very much like people not dealing with the fact he has left and simply enjoy this site for what it is....a bunch of people expressing their opinions regardless of you agreeing with them or not.

PS - Im sure Bautista & DePuniet dont like idiots endangering their lives either...

@Moto,

Not sure but if they are milking this for so long, just imagine the articles for decades to come once rossi finaly retires....:)

There wont be much that happens in MotoGP that won't be linked to rossi after he hangs up the leathers if this is Crash's "blue-print"

:)

re: "With the soft casing of the front tyre - this front tyre was done for safety reasons, to have better warm-up, but with the 800,” said the seven time MotoGP champion,"

re: “Now the (1000cc) bikes are faster and heavier and the tyre is too soft."

ahem, item #896 pointed out by s1 a little over 2 years ago. the passage of time reveals all.

re: "Given that the championship allows only one tyre manufacturer I'd like to see them bring one front and one rear spec tyre to each race and have the teams do the best they can with what they are given."

really...? is that what you want...? mmmn, you may wanna think that through a little more.

re: "I really think it is time that tyre compound selection has far less influence on race results."

but then it would simply be the LACK of tyre compound selection that would be influencing the race results. see, the reoccurring them of "no free lunch"
shows itself.

if you're thinking this Is a variable you'll be able to completely ZERO out...? you'd be mistaken. the best you can ever hope to do is manage it in the way that's currently being done.

“Tetley - I'd like to see them bring one front and one rear spec tyre to each race and have the teams do the best they can with what they are given. I really think it is time that tyre compound selection has far less influence on race results." Shamarone -

Neat point, but I would rather see winners and fallers decided by rider skill and tactical savvy than a gamble on the esoteric invisible of tyre compound selection. As it is, after the race when a rider in (or out of) contention for a significant result says “I made the wrong tyre choice” that makes nonsense of all that you have just seen during the race, and all the impressions you have formed of rider and machine capability.
