Rider rankings 2017

https://www.motorsport.com/motogp/ne...17-981916/amp/

This should be good, especially with Rossi being ranked way ahead of his teammate, who showed he needed more polish after losing the tires and chassis he dominated pre season and 1/4 of the season on.

To be fair, Rossi had more to do with derailing Vinales’ (and Yamaha’s) title chances than Marquez did, so in terms of influence on the championship he may well deserve the ranking,

Not sure how you rank Rossi above Pedrosa honestly. He had twice as many wins, beat him in the championship. Had like 4 races where he either didn't finish(Japan) or finished quite low in the order thanks to being unable to get heat into the Michelin wet tyre and dropping well out of the points at the start. Despite that he still beat Rossi over the season.

Their ridiculous notion that Rossi deserves to be ranked above Vinales based on him dealing with the changes better than Vinales falls apart when you consider that he was the one that wanted the chassis and tyre changes while Vinales was very vocal about not wanting them.

And yet, at the end of the season, Vinales agreed with Rossi.

Some posters think they know more than Furusawa.

"This competitive bike had been developed with the help of Valentino by taking a lot of time. With his coming back to Yamaha, a course of its development will be even clearer."

Masao Furusawa reflects on MotoGP career | Interview | Crash

"That was Christmas time in 2003. Then Valentino Rossi came to Yamaha and rode for the first time here [at Sepang] in January 2004. He is really a genius. He rode the crossplane bike for just five or six laps and then came back and said 'this bike is the best one'. Even though it was slow, because the power was not so much."

Rossi has revealed that all three agreed at Sepang it should ditch the troubled 2017 bike and stick with the 2016 version that Zarco used to such good effect during his rookie season.

"We tried the old bike, the one from 2016," Rossi told Italy's Radio Deejay. "We deliberated and we were all agreed the 2017 bike was worse.

"We still have to see what the new bike will be like, there will be something interesting. But the base will be the bike from 2016."
