Rossi needs Michelin to come back :) Not because Rossi needs 'special' tires, but because his bike does not work with the tires the way Marc Marquez' bike works with the tires, and forcing people on to the same tire is dishonest and manipulative :) dani even agreed with Lorenzo about the tires being DANGEROUS, while Marc Marquez retains +1/2 second in pace for most of every race this year.

Rossi himself has said he doesnt prefer the tires, Lorenzo has said he hates the tires, this year is Honda's year because Bridgestone DEEM IT, not because Honda have a better bike, all you have to do is go back to the first half of last year to figure it out, or back to 2009/2010.

This isn't racing, its a pure spectacle, and its SO BLOODY OBVIOUS you would have to be a supreme dumb **** not to see it. Only the most fool hardy people are believing MotoGP has any integrity so far as racing goes, or those who depend on it for their living (ie they take a cut from the lie )

... Trust me, I have worked for the government in my own country, I know the depths to which people will go to earn a pay check, how they will lie, accept deceit and deceive others to pick up a penny, its a shame those guys are being exploited so obviously, the guys who operate this class of racing should really be ashamed of themselves for how little respect they have for anyone with half a brain and the guys who risk it all for the guys profiting off of their backs.

Aim one of the dumbs who bealive in Motogp, For me the only thing that is obivius is what riders do on track, and for what i wach from marquez was obivious that he would be a Top gun.. yes sometimes tyres sucks, sometimes what they bring to each track can feel better or for Honda or for Yamaha or for Ducati, but in the end they all use the same tyres and aim not worrie about conspiracy theories because we are talcking about Manufacters here and will not be Ducati or Yamaha that will be dumb enaugh to be fool by bridgstone playing games to favor each manufacter when they whanted.. They allways teste the compounds, Teams have telemetri, and Bridgstone show there anylises to Teams when the race is finished, Teams and riders have meetings to talck about the future ETC.. The world is not perfect and offfcorse some tricks can be played but has far aim concern i wach true races on Sonday and the rider that Win normaly is the rider with the best Kit, with the best setup and with most t

Amazing, to haters Rossi is a fake and arrogant, to fans he is a legend and a charismatic person.
The fact is Valentino Rossi drags people along international borders to see him race.

@Balance you did watch the first half of last year right :)

lolz. Ask Ducati what they think about being told to completely redesign their bike to work with a tire that worked for a bike that was the complete opposite of what it was.

It's not fair, and if you think it's fair you believe being told what to do is fair :) Think about it, dont just believe what you are told :) Because there is no logic in being forced on to tires which suite certain bikes over others.

And if you believe one tire fits all, you know nothing about bikes, mechanics, physics etc... Different bikes work the tires differently,

A REAL control tire only is fair when everyone is on the same chassis :) Thats all there is to it.

btw, Dani's lack of tire performance in races this year speaks volumes.

Someone is playing games with the tire spec, and its for promoting the same irrational behavior that followed Dorna's success with Rossi.

Not meaning to contradict you but when you say :
"btw, Dani's lack of tire performance in races this year speaks volumes."
Marc is a couple feet away in the same garage and he is destroying the paddock. While the veterans and elders whine about the track this, the tire that, Marc rides through all imperfections and goes for the win. Bike balance and setting is paramount, but plain adaptability and rider improvising is that last 1%.

"There's not a single rider in the field that can go head to head with Rossi and come out on top... I'd sure love to see Marquez try though."

Guess you must have missed Marquez use use the Rossi signature move on it's creator at the Corkscrew a month ago?

@ GP1 - Most pundits would state that if Rossi wants to re-new his contract with Yamaha, there is no way in hell they would turn him down. You're entitled to your opinion of course, but you're wrong.
