VR will never win another...blah blah blah. Not good enough. Blah. My favurite rider is better than yours. Blah blah. Too old. Blah blah. Not enough wins. Blah blah blah. Can't set up a bike. Blah blah. Yamaha ruined MV chances by listening to this 100 year old failure. blah blah blah.

There you go. That is all done so we can move on with sensible comments about this story.

 

Superb - the post of the Year !

Rossi will be World Champion in 2018!!!!! GO the GOAT!!!!

That's so funny. 

Nothing is as funny as JL99 unable to ride in the rain.

Yet he rode in the rain at Sepang and finished on podium equalling your guy's achievements during his 2 year stint on a Ducati with CRT as his prime competition as opposed to 6 other factory bikes now. Fun stat: Lorenzo in 2017 aboard a Ducati led more laps than factory Yamaha riders. 

That is a dismal perofrmance compared to the old bike. The Ducati versions from 2014- every riders from satellite to factory are competitve everyone can ride...even Jack miller showed in test with 5th position on ducati... Shows Lorenzo's dismayl performance when his team mate is winning races after races...JOKE of the CENTURY...

And how competitive was Ducati the year before Rossi signed?selective memory, with a huge childish attitude thrown in

Not very if I remember right

Is it as funny as a so-called "rain master" not winning in the rain for 2 and a half years?
