At this level that's pretty much inexcusable.
When Jarvis let Uccio speak for Yamaha while he hid in the corner like a spineless jellyfish, he should have been sacked. The man has no set of balls.

I had completely forgotten about that and was pretty much just focussing on results. With that in mind then yes you're right, he isn't strong enough for management.

Jarvis was smart, you don’t get between a crazed bitch protecting her man.

I think back to someone like Colin Chapman who was brilliant but mercurial. He would have banned Uccio from that garage permanently...assuming he was ever allowed in to begin with. He took no shit from anyone. Lin Jarvis takes shit from anyone.

Except replacing Jarvis with a Rossi nominee would basically mean going all in with Rossi and Uccio, which seems to be what Yamaha have decided to do. It might be a good move in the long term to do so, once the anomaly that is MM is gone.

Jarvis is a baby sitter/ ego smoother, the big decisions regarding the team are made in Japan. I hope he is pissed enough to write a book once he is thru, that would be some interesting reading. He could call it ‘ Two Diva’s and a Clown’ centering on Rossi, Lorenzo and Edwards.

Yes, NZ is a good place, with a national spirit which seems to have disappeared in most places. Even the politics seem less ideological than elsewhere.
