MEETING the OBLIGATIONS of your contract and deciding NOT TO RENEW are not components of the definition of quitting. Rossi isn't a 20-something whipper snapper new to the game of GP. He's an early 30-something multiple world champ who knew that his time in GP is limited to just a few more years. Deciding not to continue on an ailing bike (with shoddy developmental probability) and ENJOYING his last few years in GP riding a competitive bike was the proper decision. Any smart rider/racer/driver would have done the same thing (a'la Stoner...he knew he wanted out, and decided to go out on a good bike).
