We will see. I don’t admire all of Jorge’s behaviour, but you don’t beat the likes of Stoner or MM, or even a Rossi of latter days in 2015 on the same bike, and win rising 50 premier class races without serious talent and application, even leaving aside the two 250 titles, with 250 GP bike racing imo perhaps the purest form of GP bike racing.

Two more things, i think going forward JLo wont get equal treatment at Ducati any longer....and MM will do all he can in the run for the title to beat everyone but specifically JLo (if he leads anymore races)....
A bridge too far. He crashed because he was inspired to run the hard tire.

No. In around 2009 or 2010, Nakamoto said that the path for Rossi to return was open.

I believe he was yes....but in Biaggi's case he was a hyper primadonna that after his Repsol time he ending up leaving MotoGP cause no one wanted him....

You and Honda (if they are) are kidding yourselves if you believe George is going to play second to anyone! Last season and a half shows he gives zero fucks about your ďmapping 8Ē. If he thinks he has a chance to win, he feels it is your job to stop him, not his job to hand it to you. Regardless if you are on his team or not. It is racing.. If you canít beat me, fuck off slow poke.

Honda has seen this and they know what they are getting. If they think he is going to change his personality to have the opportunity to ride with Mark, it is going to be a long two seasons for Honda.

I feel they know what they are getting. The are getting the only other guy to win a champ since 2011. A guy that if they give him a bike he can ride (and yes, he needs a particular type of bike), but if they give him that bike, they have a great chance to finish 1-2 in the champ in the coming years.

Not saying it is a lock. Probably 50/50, but for only $4mm investment.. Great return on investment.

Fun fact: The thing that made Rossi finally make the decision to leave was that HRC promised to give him his championship winning NSR500, made excuses for two years and then finally told him that itís not possible.
