After 2008 the level of electronics upgrade a lot.. Even now with 1000cc we dont have the same qualaty of show and fights that we had from 2003 to 2006.. bsacly Rossi saying that what was reasonable on that years now is a bit to much.. Its the Playstacion ERA if it go faster this waay eveybody will enjoy but like Realist is saying sometimes it cross there mind and they remember of the good races of the past

why don't he just turn the electronics down like stoner did , no one is forcing him to use full electronics , last year at ducati he was eagerly waiting for the new electronics package to help stop the back sliding , and thats his words in interviews not mine , seems to be looking for a way to hamper MM and with a call like that carmello will hear it loud and clear.

So VIlas you think the electronics were OK back in 2003 when only Vale had them but they aren't now that other riders go faster than him with them He has always had the top flight electronics crew, and used them to his advantage when he wouldn't share his data with team mates. Now that they aren't an advantage for him and he's n equal footing for he first time in his career they should go away?

This is the premier class of racing and I'm all for the fastest bikes with the fastest riders. I would rather see more faster bikes o the grid but that hasn't been the Dorna plan since before he Rossi Era.

Poor m8.. For you Rossi is not doing nothingh special, for me he is battalling like a worrior to get is pace back, is him 4 place.. Did you read what i say the level of electronics is becoming to much higher and is boring but its not one excuse speacly for Rossi that WOn 2008 and 2009.. Everybody has to loss one time, maybe Rossi is finding that moments now, but is still capable and dont quit and even today he allready Won one race and have been making recoverys so good that i bealive when he find again is best feelings he will be fightinhg with Marquez and Lorenzo

He will keep using the electronics because everyone else will. If he doesn't he will not have the tyres at the end to handle the bikes just like any other rider.

Everyone is just looking for a reason to bash. We all and most the riders have called for less electronics. The field will be the same...top riders and not so top riders...I think Rossi's statement was just about the spectacle of MotoGP not bashing another rider.

Go Rossi, Go Lorenzo and MM..hope for a good weekend and good show!!

Joeski.
not bashing at all , lately there has been too much contradicting blabber coming from vale and his fans he says one thing one year and his fans give 10.000 explanations for it , then next year he says another that contradicts the last and off his fans go with another 10.000 explanations , he says less electronics , i say turn them down , you say if he turns them down he's out of tyres , now that just makes less electronics pointless if the tyres won't last right?
it was proven over the years you can win races with the electronics turned down and still beat the guys with there's turned up , sure the tyres can sometimes degrade too much and get beaten , but that adds excitement right?

As usual Dacron you take an intentionally simplistic view of the issue. Vale could turn his down but if the others don't he is obviously penalising himself and the thinly veiled allusion to CS and lack of electronics well we can easily what a lack of electronics has done in terms of the Duc win ratio over 4 years.

He has a point tho.... and is a good one.

250 are very similar to this bikes and riders dont need time to fit in Moto GP category.
Maybe they should bring back 2 strokes or 1000 cc.
