Factory Honda or Yamaha return unlikely for Valentino Rossi

Honda has joined Yamaha in distancing themselves from the possibility of signing Valentino Rossi in a shock deal for the 2013 MotoGP world championship.The Italian’s future is already the subject of intense speculation after his disappointing and frustrating start to the new 1000cc era in Qatar earlier this month.The 33-year-old struggled home in 10th place and expressed frustration after the...

CCB - not that i've heard.  on the contrary, Chris Curve has just had a series of improvements made.

the big fuss i'm aware of isn't at Cadwell, but at Brands.  apparently, it's driven by the 'needs' of DTM, so there are advanced plans for a hairpin curve at Graham Hill bend.  it looks like bollocks to me, but money talks these days, and the planning permission has been approved by Sevenoakes District Council, so what this space ....

getting back on topic, Rossi is at a dead end with factory MotoGP rides, so it looks like stick with it until it works, or retire.

This is the chance for BMW and Aprilla to enter motogp and have Rossi as their lead rider and possibly lead the development of the bike to be competative.

How about this???

Rossi takes Max Biaggi's seat at Aprilia in WSB for next year.  I seem to recall Rossi once saying he fancied WSB and he could certainly say he wants to go there for closer racing.  He also has history of riding Aprilia and we all know how much he likes to p155 Biaggi off.

Then the following year he brings the Aprilia to Motogp, surely the rules will have changed by then making it easier for Aprilia, BMW, etc to bring modified WSB bikes into MotoGP.

Done :-)

Aprilia ? They are not even subject of the topic. They will not entertain him and pay him  (beggars belief ..millions of Euros'). He's past his sell by date at his current price by a country mile. At a hugely diminished price he may be an option for a sattelite team. Why would anyone bother ? 

Strictly business and Rossi's pretty astute at that. So he will understand why Yamaha and HRC will not even entertain  the notion.
