JL is the best candidate for any available Yamaha seat.

I'm just pointing out that those who had an issue with Carmelo's (alleged) intervention in 2012, seem to be rather silent about Carmelo's intervention now.
Carmelo's intervention? I havenít read about it, please direct me to it. Is Carmelo subsidizing Jlo's salary?

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.

He announced that he was going to leave Yamaha shortly after Qatar 2016 (I don't remember the exact point but it was the beginning of the season). So yeah, Jumkie is right, he was coming from winning a title.

I'll bite.

Big difference as Caramello was the first to say that 'I am not worried, Valentino will be on a competitive bike next year' and then a few weeks later Rossi went public with the Yamaha move (there were rumbling throughout).

As it stands today I have not seen Caramello mention that Jorge will be on a competitive ride next year (please point me to any article that does state this).

Now, if you look at the timelines it is clear that Caramello knew before Rossi went public that he was leaving but as yet, no such comments from Caramello.

What one can make of this could well be as simple as MikeM's comment being that Caramello learnt from last time (be he have played a role or just been aware), or one could surmise that he has played no part this time).

Sources for timeline

Rossi on competitive bike - 'Rossi on a competitive bike next year' | Visordown

And then Valentino rebuffs the comment - https://www.crash.net/motogp/news/18...s-more-than-me

Make of it what you will.

June: 2012 - The latest rumours leaving Italy have Marc Marquez already signed up with Repsol Honda, as the Rookie Rule is all but certain to be abolished at Assen, with Rossi returning to the keep the HRC camp in winning contention, whilst helping to nurture the Spaniard's talent in the top flight.
