MotoGP » Yamaha confirm Valentino Rossi’s return


@Poddy AussieNSW may have a point but its an obvious one, PR pressure is nothing new in any high profile sport and certainly was in full effect in bike GP racing long before rossi came along. As for the current situation in MPG, as bad as it could be viewed, its not any of the riders faults. I don't believe that rossi's PR alone has more control over this sport than dorna, the view that they appear to play up to it is simply because, rightly or wrongly, it suits them to do so right now. We cant ignore the fact that dorna and motogp is a business, they dont exist solely to give us something to do on a Sunday afternoon. there is no conspiracy, just greedy business men feathering their own nests.

MotoGP » POLL: Who should replace Rossi at Ducati?


@me its all fantasy anyway cos you may or may not have heard CS is retiring? Anyway, even if he went back in theory, he's two years older and wiser and experienced a much better bike now, im not convinced he would be prepared to risk the crashes just for the race wins and end up 4th in the table again, granted its better that 7th but this meant to be a factory bike and the sad truth is, it could not compete with the japs on a championship level even when CS was on it in 09/10 hence why he left ducati, for the same reason everybody eles did. All the posters who would love to see him back on it must really dislike him.

MotoGP » Yamaha confirm Valentino Rossi’s return


"now watch for all the major sponsors to start rolling in with offers now that Rossi is back" its interesting how many posters have missed this obvious point when they are quick to call VR and/or yamaha frauds. His results may not have been great for a few years but his record means he is still the biggest commercial asset in the sport, his persona also plays a large part in this. Contracts are not drawn up on results alone, some may not like this but it does not stop it being a fact. In any given profession, if an employer offers somebody a better contract than their current employer most people take it, motogp is no exception, those that think it should be need to wake up.

MotoGP » Yamaha confirm Valentino Rossi’s return


Out of 8 factory ducati riders in 10 years 6 of them have world titles to their name, of which 15 titles came from within grand prix racing. the fact that ducati only have 1 to their name says it all for me. the blind fanatics and haters of any rider need to cut the riders some slack and realise its the manufacturer thats the let down here. The riders should be applauded for having the minerals to get in to bed with them at all and not criticised when they take a better offer when it comes along.

@john 2007 is long gone, even if he was not retiring CS is not and was never the answer to ducatis problem, and neither is any rider for that matter. many folk imply on here that it only went wrong for ducati after CS left and VR joined but both riders have left this one manufacturer for a reason and its not that either of them are incapable, it seems clear, to me at least, looking at their 10 season record in MGP, regardless of riders, engine capacity, rule changes etc... ducatis problems are between the ears of the staff not in the wrists of the long list of riders who have walked away.

thats because they have a different amount of cylinders in SBK, in MGP they have a V4 so it shouldnt be a problem, but true, they did seem to get a few leg ups in SBK over the years, dont know if its still the case. They dont need help from dorna to sort their MGP issues, then need to change their approach to the design and certainly to their riders and their crews before they get any further forward.
