That would be brilliant. If he was an asshole, he would offer to replace Viñalez on the condition they keep Rossi. That would be hilarious. Rossi's career was over in 2012. Everything from that point is artificial. Everything on the record should have an ** accomplishment as Dorna's rider. (The first * with SNS).

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.

Spot on. I can see a VR46 sticker on a Yamaha far into the future.

I just wish there was a prospect that was so hot, Yamaha would have no choice but to not offer Rossi an extension for 19-20. Of course it would be structured where Rossi would be allowed to announce his retirement instead of being tossed out. Speaking of 2019, Will Ducati offer Marquez the largest contract in history. With their current form he would have to at least consider it and Lorenzo would be the rider he replaces. That could lead to Lorenzo heading back to Yamaha and Honda looking to replace possibly both riders depending on how long they want to continue with Pedrosa.With him struggling the way he is on the Michelin maybe it's time to let him go no matter how much stability he brings to the table. If this played out, who would Honda go after. Take their lumps and go young, promote Crutchlow and hire a youngster or someone like Zarco, not young but a late bloomer. It could get very interesting
I think he should be chucked out then the yellow yobs would leave the sport, IMO a great idea.
