Vinales: Everybody is going faster this year, only Yamaha is going slower. So how comes they are slower now? What kind of development results in slower bike?

Much as I dislike both Rossi and Lorenzo, Yamaha made a big mistake in letting Lorenzo go, they should have pushed Rossi out the door when Vinales joined as there certainly wouldn't have been the animosity that has made Yamaha revert to its long period in the 90's of no wins.
As for whats happened this weekend, yes Yamaha have definitely stuffed a spoke in the wheels of Zarco and Vinales who have been so much better than the fake doctor, just so i imagine they can sell a few more tshirts.

At some point they must realize the tactics to keep the yellow fastest Yamaha is backfiring and finishing outside of top six is not that glorious nor helps it sell their bike.
Vinales is tight-lipped when asked what's wrong. Maybe one day he starts speaking.

He needs to open his mouth pronto, otherwise next season will be worse regardless of their WSB electrical genius.

I like to read morons thinking out loud.

A genetic lottery which seems to have gifted you with the capacity to be wrong about gp bike racing most of the time.

In his case, more like a genesiological raffle at a carnival side-show at an in-bred circus.
