This one has to be the bike..!! On this one Rossi and is Team can put there hands and ask to yamaha for somethingh that needs to be improved.. This year in my view is not running bad, offcorse we fans expected more and it would be really nice for Yamaha if Rossi could chanllage Pedrosa more times but is not doing a bad job.. Rossi know that he need to worck hard and with the Data of this year and with the parts that Yamaha will bring i really bealive for 2014 we can see a new Rossi with a much better pace and speed... Its a matter of worck and Rossi know that if he dont perform clearly in 2014 Yamaha will not make one new contract speacly if Espargaro have a good start has Marquez had in Motogp..

I still think its an absolute mountain to climb for Yamaha (or anyone) to match Honda's data and budget, R&D advantages when trying to make a bike to maximise 20L of fuel and just 5 engines over a season.

These measures don't CUT costs, they create HUGE technical issues that demand VAST resources to optimise - which means HRC hold all the cards.

I'm hoping that (even if its for 1 season before Carmelo picks up his backhander & restores the status quo) that Aprilia rock up with a spec ECU and 24 Litres of juice a properly tidy pilot (Hayden?) and really put the cat among the pigeons and put HRC & Yam on the back foot.

It'd be great for the racing and for the series to prove that the technical rules as they are now are a lunatic menace and a benefit only really to HRC, NOT MotoGP as a whole. MotoGP NEEDS very even bikes which need rider skill NOT geek skills to restore the show & proper RACING.

That is the situation in a nutshell!
