MotoGP » Rossi jokes at chance of repeating 2009 pass

Alvaro Bautista says his first lap pass on Valentino Rossi at the point where the Italian overtook Jorge Lorenzo to win the 2009 Catalunya Grand Prix was the most pleasing moment of his ride up to sixth in the 2012 edition of the race. “...The most pleasing thing about the fight with Rossi was that I passed him in the same place he passed Lorenzo for the win in 2009.” We want more of this!

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi's salary still highest in MotoGP

@Motojunky They pay him that money on account of his pr and marketing services, because they know and hope that money will back to them + more. They know very well that he is not championship material any more, so his job is marketing and JLo job is to win the title, simple as that. He contact them first, so he was so desperate to rid from Ducati, and was not in position to dictate contract clause. They offer him option for superbike 2015 which means they count him on R1 (no more MotoGP) for pr and marketing services in future.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi's salary still highest in MotoGP

@ Ammar Because that info is in Forbes that not necessarily means that is a truth. And even it is a truth, that's probably salary for two year deal, IE 6 m. per year. @Motojunky ... most people thought Rossi had "burnt his bridges" at Yamaha, and would never again get a start. Makes you laugh doesn't it? Yes and no. He got deal only at the insistence of Yamaha's pr and marketing departments (because they need money). Racing department was against his services, Furusawa said that. This means that they need him only as cash cow, and i am sure he knows that very well.
