Yamaha dont want to be world champions this season??
Why did they sign up for then?

Really embarrassing. Hampering their own progres isnt the way to fight for the wins.

At least they could give it to the their least-scrorer factory rider, in order to test it in race conditions. This way, they could keep the other on the fight for the title, while they develop the upgrades.

I really dont understand this decision!

I think from now till november, it is damage control for the Yamaha Factory Riders.
By the time Yamaha finishes their own reliability testing and redesigning prior to race of their new box it will be too little too late.

I love racing but withought the fun side of Rossi celebration style wins and big wheelies after close battles to the finish line, where is it going? A celebrating little finger off the grip over the line? A nod of the head? A foot off a peg?

Maybe this is why a lot of the Rossi fans out there are praying for him to keep winning?(me included) Not necessarily the rider but the way the rider wins is an important entertainment factor in the sport.

I love GP for the racing of course but miss the days of Rossi climbing fences, dressing up for a laugh etc even lorenzos effort was a
