Given Valentinoís habit of using mind games with his fellow racers, Iíd be guessing heís trying to lull others into thinking heís weak and vulnerable at the moment.
Marc, Jorge and Dovi arenít the type to fall for any kiddums though. They wonít be taking him for granted and will race him hard.

MM apart from his general character and ability has something rather difficult to address with mind games, namely a 59 point lead inn the championship.

Sure he might be trying it on with Dovi and Lorenzo whom he leads currently, but as you say they are unlikely to fall for them, particularly Jorge who is pretty much playing with house money for the rest of this season.

Taking an underdog bike to the championship is not unheard of, itís happened three times in the last 6 years. The 16 Honda was sitting n the same spot Yamaha is today, couldnít out accelerate the Suzuki , no whining, no blame,just kept plugging and won a title. Rossi is giving up and forewarning his fans to blame Yamaha. This legendary mental toughness we have been forced to ingest has taken a beating the last 7 years. He quit on Ducati after half a season and he is quitting on Yamaha for the second time. Bottom line is , if Vale doesnít have a competitive advantage be it machine or tires, he quits, lays the blame at someone elseís feet be it a teammate , an opponent or his employer and the sheep lap that shit up like honey.

I have the feeling that a paucity of invitations to Rossi fan parties would not be problematic for Povol.

Keep in mind Rossi has a sense of GP history, and he wants to match or break any record he can....his riding days are nearly over so he has to look toward the next of his life in GPs and records books.....that has to be in my view as a team manager and winning titles like King Kenny (Factory Yamaha team manager)...but try to win more titles than KRSR as team manager.....
Nah! I recon Rossi wants to remane MotoGP to RossiGP.
