MotoGP » Yamaha confirm Valentino Rossi’s return


Great news, Rossi back on the M1 his M1. Well I think that Rossi will be competitive, within a race or 2, I can't see it taking him any longer than about 1-2 test's before he is back up to the top. As many have said plenty of times in the past, you suddenly don't forget how to ride a bike. Many of corse don't want rossi to be succesful but for me this is great to hear, I don't expect Vale to whip everyone like he did before especially Lorenzo, Dani has had it easy whilst Rossi has been on this lame duck, he will have his nose pushed out abit next year in terms of podiums as Rossi will be taking them. It will be interesting what Marques does next year. Good luck next year Rossi.

MotoGP » Date set for Rossi to Yamaha announcement?


HJC, fair point about this year, yes Hayden is 2 points in front of Rossi so please accept my apologies about that point. for last year though as facts are fact's Rossi finished ahead of Hayden so he was not out performed at least on race day by his team mate was he? I don't expect to get agreements as many that post on here are anti Rossi & dont like things his supporters have to say. All i would add is we are all entitled to our own opinion and we beleive in what we write. for those that support Casey great, he has proved to be a good talent, same goes for lorenzo too. If it's true about rossi re signing for Yamaha then let's see what happens then, i think one thing is for sure we are all surely excited about him being on a competetive bike again.

MotoGP » Date set for Rossi to Yamaha announcement?


HJC, erm, i think you had better go and check back the results of last year, then get back to us with why you think Hayden has out performed Rossi in 2011, so far in 2012 Rossi has finished in front of Hayden more times. Don't muck about trying to justify qualifying either because Rossi has never been a super duper qualifier. There are many on here that will not like the news that Rossi is moving back to his M1, it wont take long to re a quaint himself with the M1, they have hardly changed it since he left as it was such a good chassis. As for the comment regarding Rossi can not develop a bike, my a$$, I'm a big beleiver in it is a 2 way thing, you need a good machine & a good man to get the best out of it. There is no doubt that rossi has not done with the Ducati what we all expected, but hey we are not privy to what that bike is like, I can not beleive for 1 minute that if the bike was capable then Rossi would have extracted that out of the bike, the fact is the bike is simpl

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks tenth place start


I hope he does not re sign for them ducati, they really are useless, I'm staggered Hayden has re signed, even he is complaining about the distance to the front now. Listening to lot's of things I'm picking up I would be amazed if rossi stays at Ducati. There is 2 options 1, and this must be the best, re sign with Yamaha works team, this I believe has been discussed with all parties concerned & I think it's a done deal. 2, if it's not a done deal there is a place still available at satellite Honda team, now that is not bad as Rossi will be on a competitive bike. We have to wait another 3-4 weeks I think before we all know for sure where Rossi is going, one thing for sure is he has 2 offers on the table.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi, Marlboro and Yamaha


This is no rumor, Lorenzos crew chief has been interviewed about the possibility of Rossi returning. He has stated that they are discussing it, the discussions are taking place with Yamaha boss together with Lin Jarvis & they have even included Lorenzo. So in my opinion there is no question this is gossip, no B S the only stipulation is that rossi comes back as No 2 rider, do many of us think it matters didly sqaut whether he is No 1 or No 2, no i don't think so he will still whip Lorenzos candy A$$. I can't remember the poster that said age was not a barrier, and it's not, the Rossi haters bashers call em what you will have to try and justify why they bash rossi. Lastly, I'm a Rossi fan through and through and for those have you that have said rossi can't ride the Ducati, I have to say I completely agree, there and again there has not been many has there that can ride this piece of junk.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi, Marlboro and Yamaha


My money would be on Rossi any day, Lorenzo may have won a few races against a injured Rossi on the same bike, but now Rossi is fully fit I would not give Lorenzo that much of a chance. If Rossi stays at Ducati then they must have promised him something good. I personally don't care what he rides so long as it's a competitive bike he can fight at the front with. We are all going to have to wait and see what happens with the ducati line up for next year.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi, Marlboro and Yamaha


Yes I read that on the Spanish site and it's certainly a interesting read. I don't see any reason why Marlboro could not sponsor Yamaha next year, I didn't realize there was a limit as to how many teams a sponsor can sign up to. Can anyone think of a good reason why a rider like Rossi would want to stay with a losing team? I personally would love to see Rossi on a Honda because it would be a different bike to Lorenzo & I think it would be interesting to see them battle it out, I know who my money would be on.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: New engine 'not ready', ECU fall


It is about time we had some good posters on this site, it is great to post and have no one bitching back. Now as you may or may not know, i'm a huge Rossi fan and have watched him like many of us have since the start, so for those of us that have & I mean I have not missed a single race or qualifying in about 13 years in motogp. I would say looking at rossi he still has it, I can tell you that reading one of Rossi's books he in one determined man, I bet he is seething inside, but you can only work with what you are given, i don't care how good you are sometimes if something is just not right then man & machine can not get on, this is the situation at Ducati. I'm certain that Rossi is doing the best he can, I'm not so sure that Ducati are, rossi has stated he is giving direction to Ducati, but they are failling to deliver what he wants. Remember when he went to Yamaha, the first test they give him the bike, he told them that there was various issues to deal with suggested certain f

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: New engine 'not ready', ECU fall


Ted, yes I think we are really saying the same thing, reading that report on the dutch site I would say there is mileage in Rossi returning to Yamaha works team. Think about whats been going on and said, Lorenzo has commented about working with him again next year, there has also been a couple of new sponsors announced at Yamaha in the past couple of weeks. Now Honda have come out and said that they would give him a bike & back him in a satellite team, it does seem as there is behind the scenes a scramble on to sign Rossi, I mean what team would not want him. Anyone watching the last race & I picked up upon the commentators remarks of, just look at the crowd around rossi on the grid, he is still a top draw and a magnet for sponsors. I would not give him any more than a couple of test's & maybe 1 or 2 races if he re signs for Yamaha before he wins again.
