Including a 4th place in Losail when he said he would have preferred the harder tyre. Marc likes hard tyres.

You mean Losail where he was fastest in FP4 on the hard but due to strange conditions was told by Michelin not to run the hard? That Losail?

You're missing the point Dani, I(and others) used DORNA/MotoGPs track record to predict that with Rossis struggles on the new tyre Michelin would bring a new stiffer carcass for Valentino. They did.

It was the consensus among all the riders(including Marquez) but Rossi that they preferred Michelins new tyre. There's only one reason to bring a new one for Argentina.

Yes and the whole grid were told the same.
There was no fp4, you must mean warm up practice.

One of the things that 2015 proved to us after much speculation was that when encountered with a problem or something he doesn't like, Rossi will win to Carmello. Judging from how quickly he ran to Carmello and the nonchalant way he summoned Carmello to his motor home, it's logical to believe that this wasn't anywhere near the first time and it anything had become common practise for Rossi over the years.

Is it any wonde why Michelin have now brought a tyre with construction that Rossi prefers to Argentina?

They are only bringing the harder carsass on soft and medium compound, the two compounds Marquez never uses.unbeleivable. All riders said new tire was fine, one rider didn't , tire change.
