rossi is such a crap magnet!

And even when folk near him dont seem crap at first ..... they get there ... like Jarvis.

Im wondering if its why Burgess and rossi parted ways ..... I cant see Burgess with rossi any more and cant see Burgess ever being an arsehole.

Factory dominance comes and goes in cycles. The rule changes are designed for this.

When the 800cc switch happened, Honda suffered. The 1000cc switch happened and Ducati suffered. With the tyre change and the common ECU, Yamaha is suffering. It doesnít mean that they have a terrible bike. It just means that they are one step behind in adapting to the new rules. Racing now is closer than ever and even the ďSufferingĒ Yamahas are just about a second behind the best bikes.
That is not a huge margin if you think back 10 years or so ago.

Yamaha will get more people to work on the electronics and they will be back on top. People who have watched this sport for a long time know how this goes, only the virgin mouth breathers on this forum (not including you in this category) jump up and down about it.

If a garbage truck decides to give you the kiss of death, not a single tear would be shed. In fact, Iíll be rooting for the truck.

You make a good point and, with hindsight, I think I was swept up in the thread title a bit. Last year they seemed to have lost their mojo a tad. But there have only been 2 races so far this year, one that yielded a podium with 0.7s off the winner and the 2nd race where not one session had the same weather as another and everyone suffered, as was evidenced by the top 4 bikes, (although that isn't to detract from Cal, Alex, Johan or Jack's achievements.)

Donít worry about it, itís easy to get swept up in all the soap opera drama thatís all so prevalent in these parts.

No bike or rider is infallible now. Thatís excellent for racing. Marquez looked head and shoulders above everyone else in Argentina and might do the same in COTA, but no one knows what will happen in the other tracks. Yamahas looked miserable during the Qatar test and they were seriously fast in the race. Ducati was untouchable in Qatar and way off in Argentina. Suzuki might win a race this year.

As a racing fan , this is as good as it can get.

Because rossi has the influence on Yamaha. The last thing rossi wants is a team mate who beats him. Mav. Was going great, rossi wants bike changed .... Zarco is going great and should get a factory Yam. rossi anounces he wants a Yamaha team and wants more than Tech 3 are getting. Zarco no longer has any Yamaha next year. Its always how it goes with rossi ...... and its costing Yamaha.

I'm sorry if it offends, but I have taken a real dislike of Rossi and he should be pushed out.
