Michelin had a contract with Yamaha to provide the factory team with tires They were promised their factory teams by Dorna. Rossi wanted Casey's bridgestone tires, guess what happened, domino effect then pedrosa who had Nakano test them on his gresini bike with factory kit so they could have data for him then switched mid season then next thing you know bridgestone is the spec tire supplier. Rossi has pull because he is the Dorna media darling. They did suffer due to his injury in 2010 and even more since the titanic left port bound for new york(switch to ducati, 80 seconds) So I am agreeing when you guys say that Rossi has more marketability than Jorge Casey and Dani,Rossi is the face of motogp at the moment, but smiling and doing wheelies or riding around with a giant chicken is not being the best racer.Carmelo sees Rossi as the goose that laid the golden eggs. So like the banks and insurance companies that caused the financial crisis.They cannot afford to have him fail.a
