i think your wrong. i think he's more motivated now than he's been since 2000. the guy thrives on competition & he's as competitive as ever & has more competition than ever. the challenge is only going to get greater...... he my leave yamaha but he's not gonna leave bike racing anytime soon! thats good for all of us!!!!!

“Valentino is a very, very important rider for Yamaha, and also Jorge is, but especially Valentino…My goal in MotoGP is winning with Valentino,” Furusawa is one of the head of whole team, but too openly and often expresses his preference to Rossi over Lorenzo as if he really wants to get rid of Lorenzo to please him. He may be thinking of retiring at the same time as Rossi. I think it was Lin Javis who convinced Lorenzo to stay not Furusawa. No one will question how great Rossi is as a rider. But, as a person of important position in the team, he should be more equal toward both riders at least on public. If the technical director of the team said his goal is winning with Rossi so frankly, I do not think any title contender wants to stay there. I think it is Lorenzo who moves out of Yamaha and maybe join Honda.

Yamaha is family but Rossi needs to seal the deal and prove to the world that he can be champion on every single bike. It might be a little hard reaching 122 if he decides to move to Ducati, but the guy needs to ride the Italian before his days are over.

Hi everyone, I'm new here.. and thought this is a nice topic to also say hi to all of you.

It's funny how after 2006, we've drifted off from the oh-so-wondered-about man-machine equation into so many other factors.. no other sport throws us so many questions! These few years especially post-2006, post the 990's, we've stumbled upon so much variance, that attempt each time to fit Rossi "the individual" somewhere. Well, we can't.. be he Rossi, or anyone else.

Is it too far-fetched a fantasy to see them all shuffle across different machinery, just so we get to see how true the man-machine equation is after all!

Concerning the article, I guess it is too hard to read into media interviews. I personally would like Rossi finish on the Yam; will emotion outscore the intellect, I don't know.. but I hope it gets just as entertaining as it's so far been [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/cool.gif[/img]

Hello Sarira, welcome to the Forum, it’s fun even though sometimes we get carried away and to deep into discussions, but I guess we try to learn that it is not really personal, but part of other people’s points of view. Which, taken the right way, will always illustrate each of us so we all end up learning more.

On the subject, I think too that Rossi will stay at Yamaha (And personally hope so). Though Marlboro may throw the house out the window to get him!

Rossi: “"Some of those things make me smile. Sometimes rumors have a basis in truth, but not in this case. I don't understand where they come from, but I suppose they are based more on hope. Many people would love to see me go to Ducati, but there's no truth in this. I will 100% for sure stay with Yamaha in 2010".

Other statements from the Article:

…Crew chief Jerry Burgess has said that he will continue to work as long as Valentino Rossi is racing, but Burgess has expressed no desire to go through the rigmarole of leaving one employer for another yet again…

…There is good reason to doubt that Preziosi's approach and Burgess and Rossi's approach are compatible…

… Then there's the record books. If Valentino Rossi has a goal, it is to establish himself as the greatest racer of all time, and beat the records set by his compatriot Giacomo Agostini. Rossi is currently 20 victories short of Agostini's all time win record (or 19, depending on whether you count Ago's F750 victory or not) and 2 titles short of Ago's premier class championships…

… Rossi's best chance of hitting the record books therefore rests with stability…

…It could still happen. It's just not very likely.
