There have been some contradictory news on the nature of Rossi's technical problem at Valencia. Rossi said that his bike's engine just quit. But some news came out the next day, quoting Burgess saying that no trouble had been found.

Now more news have come out through Brivio, confirming that the problem was not a mechanical one. They say it "might" have been a software glitch blocking the rear wheel momentarily, and giving Rossi the impression of an engine failure.

So in the end, Yamaha's ECU could be blamed both for Rossi's crash in QP and for his retirement from the race. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ph34r.gif[/img]

Or, one could blame Rossi's brain for opening the throttle too much out of that turn, and for misjudging a bug for a mechanical failure... [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/animal_rooster.gif[/img]

this is the trouble with traction control imo. it give's you a false sense of security,fine when it works,you can give it full throttle in a corner with no worry s or busted bones when it doesn't.
anybody come's on this thread and trys to say rossi made it up or sandbagged is an idiot (pinky). ask youself how many times your computer has crashed,and what evidence is there it ever happened after a re-boot.

Rossi != Quitter

If Rossi claims a mechanical (which would also include software and electronics), I believe him.

He was riding with a broken hand and climbing up into the points to secure second place in the championship when he pulled in. It's not like he was that far off the pace.

Even if he was running in last place reading our names on the KR bike, I bet he would still finish a race. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img]

Idiot I am....
I think that Rossi may be playing games to get his way again...
Think about it.. he doesn't really care about 2nd place.. He wants the championship and he feels that he has not gotten the support from Yamaha that he felt that he needed during the season.

He whined and moaned and got the tyres.
Why not fudge it a bit and get the extra attention that he did not receive this year...

Rossi wants Yamaha boss at more races

By Michele Lostia and Glenn Freeman Wednesday, November 7th 2007, 11:31 GMT


Valentino Rossi has asked the boss of Yamaha's MotoGP project to attend more races next year.

Masao Furosawa's role with the manufacturer for the past two years has led him to be more involved in more aspects of the company, preventing him from fulfilling the same role that he had during Rossi's title-winning years with Yamaha.

"I have asked him to come back to the races," Rossi was quoted as saying by Italian magazine Motosprint. "He and I have a great relationship.

"I told him we must re-create the group that we organised in 2004. We must work together more."

Rossi believes that Yamaha's only chance of winning the MotoGP title again is to bring Furosawa back into a more specific role with the project.

"He knows how to motivate the group, he knows how to obtain what he wants because he is very powerful," the Italian added.

"We need an engine with more horsepower and we must develop it well, with the aid of the racing department. Only Furosawa can give us a hand."

Rossi won back-to-back titles with Yamaha after he joined them in 2004, but in the past two seasons he has finished second and third respectively in the standings.

I thought he hit a bump that everyone was hitting???

He looked "squirelly" coming into the corner thats all.

Must have hurt though ... anyone else would have pulled in I would have thought.

He gave it a go though.

I can't say he was a cert. to get the 2nd either, although I was convinced Edwards was sandbagging a bit .... just in case Rossi needed an extra place when the finish line came.

It wasn't TC thats part of the Engine and Burgess has said .... it wasn't the engine. These things have very comprehensive data aquisition to record what happened ...... so .... work it out. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif[/img]

i said it last week there was no prob with his engine but was shot down.

he just wants to let other people know that there is mechanical problem when the bike isnt 100% perfect. he already did it in the wet race. now again.

i see heaps of people do that when racing. when they go shit i pull to the side and start swerving their bike and looking at the front end or rear end, indidcating is wrong, but then once they pull thier head in they are going fast again.


rossi wants to keep his aura of invincibility, so when he isnt competitive what else to say than his machinary let him down. i think rossi has let his machinery down equally. crash this year, crash last year. did he apologise then?

end of day rossi dont give a shit about 2nd. no he doesnt he has won 7 wc. as if he would be rememebered for his 2nd in 07? when your so used to wining, coming 2nd just dont cut it. it hurts. yes it does.


actually a 3rd would look better than a 2nd in 07, it would say look how bad my bike was in 07, i couldnt even get a 2nd, yeat i am the best rider.

now does Rossi would like to apologize to yamaha?

Any link to the actuall report of what Burgess said? I find this hard to believe, given that Yamaha has already apologized.

If they spent their $10M on the bike instead of the rider, they might have more success.

Yamaha said it was a software problem pinky. You only seem to come out with your own statements
