Maverick canít race for shit, heís an excellent rider but his race craft is terrible. He spends too much time behind guys he quicker can while he fails to make passes, then probably burns up his tyres in the process.

Yamaha has been getting a lot of shit for their bike but hereís the final standings from the past 3 years since Lorenzo left.
2017 - 3, 5, 6, 10.
2018 - 3, 4, 6
2019 - 4, 6, 7 which will likely be 3, 4, 7-9 by the end of the year. And their four bikes are likely to all finish in the top 10.
Sure they canít get a win often lately but that can be put down to Marquezís total domination, Mavericks inability to overtake and Rossi being past it.

Also anyone else notice how they kept mentioning that Taka was taking off the final rounds to have surgery and heal an injury for next season but not once was it mentioned he was injured after being taken out by Rossi.

Yes, I have a theory about this.

In Spanish broadcast they not once mentioned Rossi or talked about his downfall, not even after crashing.

Had it been any of the top 5 or 6 from the race they would have been saying how they are dropping the ball, doing like shit etc.

I get the feeling they are banned from talking shit on him.

I know many reporters still have their nose up Rossi's ass but I also know Criville hates his guts and would talk shitloads of shit if he was allowed to.

I remember back in the 2007-2012 era where Crivi only had eyes for Stoner, dude was so in love of his Riding and speed & was pissed at the bad luck Stoner had all the time.

I watch the foxtel broadcast in Australia and they also never mentioned Rossi dnf until after the race was run. I don't think the same as you though, I think the commentators were unaware. The cameras were elsewhere in the race at the moment, and the commentators missed the moment. Nothing more, nothing less.

They saw him fall and mentioned he fell, that is it. Not a single comment more.

Live btw.
