MotoGP » Valentino Rossi to start Yamaha contract talks

Ah choo, look Marquez is the real deal but one WC or even 2 does not a make a legend. As I have pointed out before I seen articles about how Tiger after having won 8 majors was going to blow Nicholas' record (of 18?) out of the water he went on to win 3 more and the hasn't been in contention for years. Raf Nadal looks like he may do Feds record but he isn't there yet. It is not simply about talent but staying power Stoner didn't have it and I have always said 2010 for JLo was gifted by the other three aliens being injured and in 2012 a similar vein. Also I didn't bring up who was the greatest I just replied to Mr Fill.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi to start Yamaha contract talks

Yeah but mrFill the elephant in the room for Ago is that for an extended period he was on a bike with a mammoth performance advantage which makes Casey's 2007 situation pale by comparison. That and that while on said bike in a team with Hailwood he only won WCs on the MV after hailwood left. Certainly Rossi is one of the few riders (and certainly not Ago) who left the dominant bike at the time to ride a bike that had not won in 12 seasons. As Doohan said in his own autobio he didn't have the guts to leave Honda and try his hand. Ago only left after the dominance of MV had been eclipsed and did not take the WC on the other marque the very next season. Let's see if JLo has the guts to jump on the bike he says is superior and battle against Marquez my bet is he doesn't and will use the lack of performance to maintain the illusion that he is the equal of marquez.

MotoGP » Front row first target for 'pretty fast' Rossi

Yes I cannot imagine Rossi coming out with those kinds of statements unless he had the strong smell of blood in the water. I think he knows JLo has lost his cajones a little and MM is starting to think he can walk it in (which is not entirely unfounded) but as anyone with a brain can see the Yam (of Rossi's) is closing the gap and Rossi has driven that development and on equal machinery there is little difference experience versus youth.

MotoGP » Rossi gives tentative approval to new chassis

Guna, Agree Ducati's fortunes changed in part because of Rossi's departure and Gigi's arrival. Gigi could see that he needed to have full control over bike development and refused to come over until he could take an axe to the previous personnel and general approach. While speculation I wonder what would be situation if Gigi and Rossi were there together. I also maintain that JB was not up to the job of tuning the new motorcycles and I think it clear that Gabusera has also had an influence on Rossi's fortunes this year. I would also agree with Codger, the fact that he and Marquez had a battle in Qatar shows that Rossi is still competitive. I hope it shows again in Jerez.

MotoGP » Tyre ‘risk’ spurs Rossi on to podium

Actually it was 1.4 at the end and given it was out to 5 means he was catching him as you would not whittle a lead down to that on purpose. I think Rossi has wins on him if they can have a bit of luck with tyres and I have little doubt that Yam will sign him again next year on one year as I have a feeling that the advances are due to his input and working with Galbusera. I always said that JLo is a great rider but can't hack the cut and thrust, likes orderly races like Stoner and Pedrosa. See how many laps it took Pedrosa to get pass Jlo.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: Bradl cost me a podium

Look it may be a legit move and Rossi has done just as much but generally it was in the process of taking the lead. Also I think he made a pretty fair appraisal while he made mistakes at the start he was clearly coming through. Irrespective he has Jorge jumpy as there is nowhere to hide and is competitive on time with MM a clear track and him and MM and it will be awesome. As someone said it seemed very much like Jorge simply gave up and you can't say that about Rossi (who probably has more incentive to do so). Also there is no guarantee the Jorge will gel with the Honda. Interesting times. Cheers

MotoGP » Rossi tenth, but declares 'anything can happen'

Crashnet, Jorge is a racer of sorts he will if he has to but likes nice orderly races. You could see how he started to get rash last season when he saw MM was prepared to "race" rather than a nice orderly procession. As for Vale this is one circuit what worries me is what he has said about the performance. I agree that with so many close together race craft will be vital and in that department I still rate VA.
