I agree with you! Or at least in prison for 20 years for not paying his taxes....

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.
A second is a huge deficit and Yamaha is nowhere near that far behind. You take qualifying for the rest of the season and there won’t be 2/10 between them . Race pace would average less than 3/10ths.

Selective quoting to change the meaning of the actual sentence is exactly what I expect from you lots.

Try again.

I'm sorry if it offends, but I have taken a real dislike of Rossi and he should be pushed out.
I think we agree on most things motogp,I too dislike Rossi immensely, bordering on hatred lately which probably isn't a good thing,i don't wish him dead though,i like to see him crash out of races but only if he gets up and walks away,any death in this sport i love is too high a price to pay,at the end of the day it's a dangerous sport and fatalities will happen but lets not wish them on anyone.

Are you referring to me? If so, let me take this opportunity to say you don’t know squat about GP if you think the Yamaha is a second down to the Honda and Ducati. All you’re doing is trying to build in the Rossi excuse 2018. Rossi might be a fucking second slower but the Yamaha is nowhere near that slow.

I guess you were out getting a lobotomy during the tests.
Fuck off with the rossi straw man argument. All you moles went quietly underground after Qatar only to resurface after the DNF in Argentina.

synn doesn't actually know anything about GP. He thinks Ducati only suffered when the 1000cc formula was introduced. Tells you he has no idea about Ducati and the 800 formula's trials and tribulations.

No point in trying to educate him since his minuscule brain only has time to spend on uttering weak insults while dreaming of being sodomized by Rossi and Uccio.

I think the proof of the pudding will be once the racing hits Europe, or, as I have heard it referred to before, 'the ground war.'
If the Yamahas are adrift in places like Le Mans and Catalunya, then they have a problem. But I don't think they will be, they were close in Qatar, ultimately time will tell.
