Yamaha didn't propose me anything for the future. I thought I would've had contats at the end of 2017, but it wasn't the case. There were rumors saying Valentino may have blocked me, but I didn't think so. I respect Vale to much to think so and I know that even if he's important inside Yamaha, the Japanese are the one who decide. So, no one close the road to Iwata for me. It's just that Yamaha wanted to work with Vale and Vinales and plan the future with them.
Shhhh donít present facts to the mouthbreathing brigade! Their little hamster brains are gonna go up in flames!

That's just PC nonsense. Edit: danski post above.

Also can you imagine that Jlo on a satellite bike offering the official team any feedback to assist Rossi? No I can't either!
If Lorenzo is on a satellite bike, Rossi's influence would be nil. It's ultimately a Yamaha decision, not something that Rossi or Jarvis could influence.

Then my second comment would apply.

I can't picture the factory team relying on data from a satellite team. Can it happen? I don't know.

Learn something about MotoGP.
The only reason Cal and Petrux have current year bikes is so that the respective factories have one more data point.

I can't make sense of what you said.

Still clueless as ever.

More than 2 current spec bikes being run allows for more data collection for the teams. If Pramac is running 2 GP17's, it does nothing for GP18 data collection. Ditto on the RCV.

Even older spec bikes provide valuable data such as tyre wear etc. which the factory teams can then compare to the current spec bikes.

So I am guessing it will be Moto2 for him.

I didn't know that Repsol were talking to Rea. Would be great to see him in MotoGP and on a good bike. He said previously that he didn't want to make the switch without a top ride, a Repsol Honda RCV fits that bill perfectly.
He has done nothing to deserve a Repsol factory ride . Being a multiple champion in a watered down series like WSBK does not gurantee a top ride in GP. If he canít take a top satellite ride to prove himself, fuck em, let him play in kids pool the rest of his career.
