MotoGP » Rossi: Marc’s wins the rider, mine the Honda...


Stoner for Honda the year prior to Marc joining and seeing as Marquez had been sponsored by Repsol Honda already and was always destined to join the team you can bet that they were more than prepared for his arrival. Rossi was previously an Aprillia rider and had to establish a working relationship with JB when he joined Honda and also was put into a factory supported satellite team before joining the official Repsol team unlike Marquez who was fast tracked into the Repsol team.

Good response from Rossi in my opinion. In one reply he gets in a bit of a dig at Biaggi (again), subtly drops the hint that if the Honda was supposedly the better bike when he was on it then maybe it's the better bike now and will also be planting the seed in Marquez's head that he should try a different manufacturer in the future if he wants to show that he is the one winning and not just the superior Honda.

SkyWilk: Funny how Rossi forgets how he himself said he would win on the Ducati..what happened to that?? Suddenly Biaggi took Rossi's leathers and was complaining it was the bike??...
He wasn't asked how well he did on the Ducati, he was asked how he felt about Marquez being praised for winning on the honda after people said he only won on it from 2001 - 2003 because it was the best bike. Truth is that since Rossi left Honda 10 years ago nobody has won more titles or races for Honda than what he did during his 4 year stint, nobody has won more titles or races for Yamaha than what he has despite 4 other riders having a chance on the factory Yamaha since Rossi joined in 2004 and since he joined Ducati in 2011 nobody has finished a race on a Ducati in a better position than his best finish of 2nd or had more podiums than him or finished higher than his best 6th position in the final standings and that was without extra fuel and softer tyres.

It's about the legacy you leave behind and what you did during the years you raced not about how many times a younger rider beat you towards the end of your career. If John Surtees was to race the Repsol next year he'd get beaten by the slowest of the open class riders, doesn't mean they'll ever achieve what he achieved or win as many titles as he did.

MotoGP » Rossi: Finally I can beat Marquez!


amakusa: It sounds like Rossi is afraid of Marquez. Keeps mentioning him and He chooses his words so politically correct towards MM, unlike others whom he has no regard for.
I'm a fan of Rossi but he did make a fool of himself in 2011 and 2012 on the Ducati after everything he had said about Stoner, he learnt a big lesson from that and picks his words a bit more carefully now.

alol: @sodesu Exactly right. Rossi did have 1st dibs on the overnight Michelin's and back then the satellite bikes of tbe Pons team & Sete (Prior to 05) Gresini were not as close in spec to the Repsol bikes. Rossi was also lucky to inherit Michael Doohans crew in 2000 after Mick had spannered himself at Jerez the year before. And before anyone mentions Marc getting Stoners crew they were nowhere near as pre emiment as JB's boys.
So first of all Rossi had the best bike, then he had the best tyres, then he had no rivals and now he was winning because he had Doohans crew?? Marquez didn't exactly come into the Repsol team unexpectedly with an inexperienced crew, Santi Hernandez worked as part of Criville's team in the 1999 title winning year and worked closely with Marquez in Moto2 so already had an established working relationship with Marquez, a lot of the rest of the crew came from Stoners ducati championship team and had also won the title with Stoner for Hon
