MotoGP » Rossi: We are quite worried

Rossi did not win his first season in 125, 250, or 500 cc class and he lost three of seven with Yamaha in the premier class. And RawDog correctly points out the demise of former greats Agostini, Spencer, Lawson, etc. But everyone is different and Vale and crew and Ducati engineers will eventually figure out how to make their package championship winners. More is at stake now, I believe, than ever before. Rossi believes he has a lot to prove and he is striving to be the official G.O.A.T. Who knows, he may even change manufacturers again after Ducati! And don't forget about Mike Hailwood who came out of an eleven year retirement to win at the Isle of Man, 38 years old.

MotoGP » Ben Spies: 1000cc MotoGP will be better for me

It's possible they will return to the 22 litre limit of the 990 cc era (or more) if a certain amount of fuel is needed to complete any given race. They talk about wanting to cut costs but I think they are more interested in the spectacle finally and are paying a bit more attention to the fans hence the change back to big bore motors in the first place. SBK has taken much away from MotoGP already in terms of popularity and viewership. The change will be good for the sport and Ben and Nicky and most of the others I imagine.
