People seem to be too focused on Yamahas results without taking Marquez’s absolute dominance into account. The results themselves aren’t even bad, it’s mostly centred around the fact that Rossi isn’t winning. Yamaha is trouncing every Honda that isn’t ridden by Marquez, they’re competing strongly with Ducati and are comfortable in front of Suzuki. Their riders aren’t performing as consistently as their bike so some people are using the rider standings as the argument for the bike being bad. I believe the evidence suggests otherwise.

They’ve been on the podium nearly every round so far, at Qatar Rossi was only 0.6 off the win despite coming 5th. He might not have got the W or a podium but in assessing if the bike is ok at Qatar the result says it’s capable of winning. Last week Mav was a bees dick off being on the podium. After 14 rounds they’ve only been non contenders for the podium 3x. Ducati have been quite similar. We don’t even have to touch on how Honda are going without MM.
