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.
I wonder if Vinales could get JB as his head mechanic, man I'd love that!

I dont think Burgess would go anywhere near the current Yamaha garage.

It doesn’t 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 “Suffering” 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.
Until Rossi jumped on their bike it had been 12 years since they won a championship, thats a long break if its cyclical.

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

I do not agree with your sentiment that Rossi milked anything regarding Simoncellos' demise. He certainly did not milk anything, in my opinion. If I could gauge my sense of loss against Rossi; himself the loss must of felt it in tonnage. I had a heavy heart and felt I lost one i'd known vicariously. And it affected me greatly.

we are only 2 races into the season... yes Zarco has been the best Yamaha rider, but he is also in a position to take risks and win a big contract.

One other thing about Zarco is that he really does seem to prefer the soft tyres and, as a result, does suffer with longevity issues i.e. Qatar.
However if they can last the duration, then he is in with a chance of winning i.e. Argentina

As Hollywood said, he can afford to take those risks.
The factory boys need something that will work everywhere. They need consistency to win the title, not just the odd race.

Zarco had a tyre failure issue in Qatar. He's been able to make the soft option work well at other circuits though.
