@WylieCoyote ”Please retire and give your bike to somebody who can or accept that your job is to get manufacturer points for Yamaha. What we are doing is questioning the waste of a factory ride when it could be given to a younger and potentially faster rider.” Rossi is much more than a rider. I’ll give two examples. Muhammed Ali hasn’t won a fight in decades, but everyone still acknowledges him as The Greatest. Many celebrities and even Royalty are happy to have their names associated with various charities and organisations for the benefits it endows, they don’t have to do anything, just have their names on the letterheads. Any MotoGP team would be ecstatic to have Vale on their team. He is an icon. He is doing everything that Yamaha want of him. Yamaha don't want VR46 to beat Lorenzo- yet. But when Jlo eventually moves to Honda, then circumstances will change and Vale's worth will be apparent to all.
