Rossi: Broke leg didn't cost me title

Now if he would admit that Marquez didn't cost him 2015, it would go a long way towards restoring his legacy.

The cynic in me says that any admission regarding 2015 and Marquez will never happen as he needs someone or something to blame for his failures.

In 2015 it was Uccio's Marquez conspiracy
In 2017 it is Yamaha's failings

But hey, maybe I am just to cunical

They’re all blaming maverick for being too fast on the early bike and tyres. Funnily enough he was quicker on the 2016 bike too.
Maybe just maybe, Maverick was right....

Boy do the Rossi fans get upset when you argue with them about it. Especially because ya know they both got slower on the chassis Rossi wanted.

Absolutely correct, Rossi hates to have a team mate better than him, there was only one thing wrong with the 1st 2017 bike and its name is Rossi.

I do believe there was some issues with the 2017 bike in low grip conditions and the two Spanish tracks being totally fucked showed it. But those tracks have been anomalies both this year and last year(Rossi took his only two wins thanks to poor track condition) but Vinales fought tooth and nail to keep the chassis they started on because he said the new one was worse. He has been proven correct over and over again.

I'm guessing Vinales now knows why Lorenzo jumped ship...

It gives me joy in knowing that even after being hamstrung by his teammate, Vinales will decisively finish ahead of Rossi in the championship. I first and foremost want Marquez to win title and pull for him to win every race, but if that's not in the cards, I would like to see Vinales win just to rub it in

Yamaha seem to have gone to the dogs, the new R1 was a disaster.
