He is too big, as is Petrucci.

I recall reading a Jarvis interview in mcn Sport magazine, where he says a team visit to Valentino’s ranch, for some riding and a barbecue and bonding session, has become a tradition in the week before the Misano race.
I can hardly see Lorenzo and his crew being invited up there and have never seen any mention of it.
Surely if Jarvis as team boss is visiting the ranch for this “tradition”, he takes his whole team?
Of course just because Jarvis is a minion through a through, it doesn’t mean team orders are enforced, but it could mean one rider has more say on how the bikes are developed.
Lorenzo had been complaining how bad the Yamaha was getting in the wet for years, but all this was dismissed as he was scared to ride in the wet. He also complained of poor rear grip at some tracks too, where Valentino had grip.
Now it seems the Yamaha is poor in the wet since Valentino is seemingly running the show, and the bike definitely has rear grip problems.
Maybe Lorenzo wasn’t wrong?
The 2017 bike is bad in the wet, the 2016 bike was not. Rossi was a country mile ahead at Assen 16, and almost won at Sepang 16.

Rossi whinged about the 17 bike from day one.

I'm sure that there are team orders, when I did amateur racing there were what would be called team orders, especially at the end of the season.
Rossi should now be doing the decent thing and not get in Vinales way, after all he will be lucky to finish 4th.

Bullshit, Rossi whined about the Michelin from day one and even said he didn't have issues with the bike, just the 2017 Michelin front. After the tire change didn't bring the desired results, then he started blaming the bike.He eventually got the bike to where no one could ride it.
Gaz and Theo like this.
