MotoGP » Rossi: I don’t regret joining Ducati


Rossi did it because: 1) Lorenzo won the championship in 2010, and that made Yamaha substantially lower their salary offer to Rossi for 2011/12. Lorenzo was simply the new #1 in the team, and Rossi couldn't accept that. 2) Rossi thought that if Stoner could win on the Duc, then so could he. And I'm quite sure Rossi regrets it actually, he just doesn't want to admit it. 11/12 could have been his last chance at winning the championship once more. Now instead he lost 2 years of his prime. In 2011 it would of course have been very difficult to beat Stoner, but then again Vale is a master of putting psychological pressure on his opponents.

MotoGP » Jubilant Aleix Espargaro has Open podium aim


Obviously Yamaha, who changed their deal from only leasing engines to leasing almost the whole bike, are seeing big potential in the FTR-Espargaro-package. This is most likely THE testing bed for Yamahas move to the "open class", which will become default in a year or two. Honda have made a wrong step with the RCV1000R, its not advanced or fast enough. They, and Ducati, need to do the same as Yamaha ASAP. I.e. make an "open class" version of their current bike, so they get it up to speed with the spec ECU and increased fuel. Otherwise they'll end up a year behind Yamaha.
