Valentino Rossi: Jorge Lorenzo staying is better for Yamaha

Valentino Rossi has accepted that if Jorge Lorenzo rejected a lucrative deal to join Ducati that it would massively benefit Yamaha. It is no secret that Rossi and Lorenzo don’t get on, but the pair have formed a formidable partnership in Yamaha’s factory team. Rossi and Lorenzo have won seven out of 11 races in 2009 and Yamaha is dominating the Team...

Re: Really?

I have to agree with Richard67, the "It is no secret that Rossi and Lorenzo don’t get on" comment is careless.  They are obviously very competitive against one other, but it's nowhere near the equivalent of the Toseland/Edwards spat.  The comment makes it sound like they're at each others throats.  Clear case of journo sensationalism.

Not true

MCN yet again talking rubbish!!! After just finishing reading Jorge Lorenzo's autobiography its clear to me that they totally respect each other and are civil to each other but they are not good friends and have a very professional relationship. That is along way off from saying that they dont get on!!! Time and time again we have to read MCN crap written by Matthew Birt. Start telling the truth or maybe you should get a job with some Sunday gossip paper!!

Just the facts, sir.

Next it will be how Rossi is actually a space alien and he is using alien technology in a massive conspiracy to dominate MotoGP. ;)

Getting on????

If they get on so well why is there a wall built between them??? Seems to me that getting on and tolerating each other are two different things. Not too sure who exactly Lorenzo gets on with as he is so focused on doing well that he doesn't seem to have to much time for bosom buddys in the paddock. Then again what racer does? Maybe Rossi prefers Jorge to stay at Yamaha as he is easier to control there. Rossi will be No.1 and Jorge No.2

The Wall

Yes Eddy the wall is there because Rossi sees Lorenzo as a threat. I also agree with you in your 'easier to control from within' comment. Whilst Rossi is at Yamaha and winning his comments development wise will ALWAYS carry more weight. I presume this is one of Lorenzo's big issues along with ego and the No.1, No.2 thing, although they seem to have pretty similar riding styles. The guy is young (a bit impetuous at the moment) and very driven in his desire to succeed - can't knock that attitude. I couldn't care less about the state of their personal relationship, but cordial & respectful seems mature - unlike the much older CE11's child like behaviour.
