The 'Marc vs Rossi' feud may attract more media attention but I personally find the 'Uccio vs Max' feud playing out in the Yamaha pit garage to be far more ruthless and interesting. There has always been bitter and savage rivalry amongst Rossi's friends as to which one will be selected as Rossi's 'No.1 best friend'. A title that earns you a 100% all financial expenses paid carefree life, as well as a front row seat to Rossi's life both professionally and personally. Amongst Rossi's friends Uccio has clearly dominated this area since childhood but behind the scene his position is always under constant threat from fierce competition.

After Uccio's post race performance in Argentina he received an official warning from Yamaha to curb his behaviour or face permanent expulsion. A blow that could seriously cripple his ability to remain top dog. The 'No.1 best friend' competition could smell blood and none more so than Max, Uccio's strongest and oldest rival. This was demonstrated clearly at the very beginning of the FP1 session. When analysing the footage its clear from Max's body language that he is asserting himself as the dominant friend for the media and camera's. Within seconds Uccio administers strong retaliation, drawing the cameras away from Max and almost removing him from frame completely, then delivering a cheeky 'thumbs up' to draw all attention in on himself ... Being Misano and home ground for both Uccio and Max I have a feeling this could get uglier than Sepang 2015.

I didn't watch the Thursday PR rubbish, seems to me its a slag fest as to who is top dog.
Having watched FP 1 and 2, even though the duc's came top Marc was easily the best rider out there and I imagine that will annoy Rossi. If Marc wins will we get more yellow idiots booing?

He gave VR a cross to hang himself on and unfortunately VR grabbed the opportunity with both hands.

Of particular interest is the way he offers the hand. Clearly there is no real effort here as he maintains a closed posture and only gestures at the shake. Upon the (obvious and sheepish) rejection he immediately shrugs as if to say "see, what can I do?!".

I think VR has been very naive here and upon watching it back will probably be aware of the powerplay by MM.

Very subtle and quite well done by Marc, a bit clumsy and not well managed by VR who was looking for any reason he could find to avoid the hand shake and MM didn't need to be a rocket scientist here to predict VR's response.

For all that think I'm seeing things here, I'd like to point out that you don't get to be a world champion at this level without being a very shrewd operator when it comes to interpersonal relationships. MM has 5 premier class wins and I would bet the house on him using every tool at his disposal to ensure his place at the top perch of the sport.
While i agree with what you say i don't think Marquez needs to play any games with Rossi to beat him and have dominance on track,he's already got the beating of him and will prevent him from ever winning another title,i reckon he knows Rossi has had his day as far as championships go.

And this little prick want to shake hands? Wow. Talk about a 2 face shit. If Vale ever shakes hands or trust this guy again, I stop watching.
I'm sure there are some good mental health professionals in Canada who could help you out.
