This, I certainly agree with you on.

We all agree that the factory squad has suffered. But what we do not agree on is why. You blame the riders - but factory riders were
in fact getting consistently good results prior to the last two seasons. So . . . what is more logical to assume? Both riders have declined
in talent? Or that Yamaha has dropped the ball? How can you watch them ride and not see the problem is the bike???

You say the issues with the bike are "so-called" despite people more knowledgeable than you and I repeatedly point out the failings of the bike,
virtually predicting at numerous races, at which point in the race the Yamahas would start to fade, which can only lead one to think either you really believe you know better than the pros in the paddock - or you're just deeply in denial. Or you're just too stubborn to admit when you're wrong.

Well SOMEONE is certainly in denial. I said the FACTORY squad have suffered since Lorenzo left meaning they have suffered BECAUSE he left. Someone better inform Fabio and Franco that they're on rubbish bikes....they don't seem to have noticed.

Let's see . . .

At Qatar Morbidelli took an 11th and Fabio took a breathtaking 16th place

In Argentina Fabio was 13th and Morbidelli a fabulous 19th

At COTA Morbidelli took a 5th @ 19 seconds behind the underpowered Suzuki and Fabio took 7th 26 seconds back

In Jerez Morbidelli took 7th @ 8.3 seconds back and Fabio's bike crapped out mid-race.

Just a hunch, gonna go out on a limb - but I reckon they have taken notice.

That underpowered Suzuki seems quite powerful with its win at Texas and 2nd at Jerez, got away from Dovi no probs too...anyway Fabio and Franco 1 and 2 in qualifying at Jerez, Fabio smashing the lap record and topping testing...looking like a sure podium at the weekend bar a suspicious gearbox issue, both running at the front...damn those useless Yamahas.

Wasted enough time with you on this. If you still think a couple hot laps are an indicator of a likely podium, you've learned zero about the history of the sport.

Not always nice having the truth pointed out I guess.

What is wrong with your brain? In one post you say how the bike has declined after Lorenzo left the team in the next you say the Yamahas are the best bike in the field. You are contradicting yourself. Then you say the Petronas riders are hot shit, but then in the next post you say Yamaha's suffering because they don't have good riders, once again contradicting yourself. The factory squad bikes that were being run in seasons following Lorenzo's departure and the same bikes currently being used by the Petronas team. Further still, you ignore the lack of podiums by the Petronas team blowing it off with some bullshit comment about a "suspicious" mechanical problem.

Oh yeah . . . the "suspicious gearbox issue".

What's that quote from Marc Maron?: "Conspiracy theories make dumb people feel smart."

Hmmm..looks like I've struck a nerve there. If you read my posts you'll see that in actual fact I said the factory squad bikes are perfectly good, Lorenzo romped to the 2015 title on it. Funny how the bike is rubbish since he left. The satellite squads performances pretty much prove it. Stick a decent rider like Fabio in the factory team and you'd have a serious championship contender.
