Ezpeleta said long before the end of last season that Rossi would have a competitive bike in 2013 - because he was helping to ensure that Rossi could move back to Yamaha. He has put his eggs in this basket and he is hoping he doesn't end up with egg on his face. It is these types of machinations that convinced Stoner to retire. Dorna is looking at the bottom line and they believe that Rossi winning again will draw crowds and improve television equity. For them to actively manipulate the series like this is not good for the sport in the long term.
