Sure it does sound great when you say he was runner up 3x but he came second out of 3 riders realistically.

Last year there was 6 healthy riders on 6 competitive bikes and he came 5th.
When Rossi does well: His bike was great!
When Rossi doesn’t do well: He sucks!

Hahaha get shafted.

The four bikes that could win the title had the best riders on them - and that fact has been true for most of GP history.

Everyone can make excuses. Rossi was injured last year, the Yamaha wasn't working properly, etc.

Nope, so who gives a shit.
Whether he won a title is not relevant to the point I was making (which was in response to Keshav's comment). Your comment is a non sequitur.
