Valentino Rossi never an option to replace Casey Stoner at HRC

It was heralded as a potential HRC dream team with Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez together in a master and apprentice scenario for 2013. The reality though was Rossi was never even considered a serious option to return to the Repsol Honda squad for the first time since 2003. Having announced Marquez and Dani Pedrosa in its factory line-up in Mugello last...

@RawDawg

Thanks....yes, I'm never surprised at the Spanish connections and goings on. Given the state of their economy, and deal that keeps a Spanish company and rider in the ascendancy is going to get priority.

Interesting

In an article over on superbikeplanet titled "Dovi fires Over Yamaha Bow", it looks like Dovi has gotten feed up with Yamaha dragging out it's decision and has voiced his frustration. One would think he would have learn from his teammate to keep his mouth closed. As it has been written, Cal essentially closed the Yamaha factory door shut on his own face after he was told not to talk about contract negotiations in the media yet continued on about Ducati whenever he was asked. I wouldn't be too surprised if Ducati hasn't been impressed either and put off even more after this weekend with Cal point blank saying that they are the hold up in the negotiations. But anyway, Dovi says if he can't get a works bike to fight for a title he might as well do something else - WSBK. It is no secret that if you aren't on a works bike you have zero shot at capturing a title. Getting either Dovi or Spies or Hayden or Cal would be a good coup for WSBK. But Dovi especially as it says MotoGP is essentially on pay per view in Italy and WSBK is on a major network. As MotoGP and Dorna is run by the Spanish let us not forget WSBK is run by Italians - they would love to have Dovi.

you were also convinced John Hopkins would be a WSBK title challenger this year.

Ironically Rossi's best shot

is to stay put - and he knows it too if the groveling Mugello hat is anything to go by. At a remarkably glacial pace he's inched his way forward over the past 18 months. Although with his heady fortuitous fifth at Mugello I believe he may well have peaked.

Lorenzo would have him for lunch each and every Sunday if he was on a M1, and frankly I should imagine Rossi is a little scared at the thought of racing the RCV in it's current guise. Three chassis' down and still no chatter fix for HRC. Rossi would be wobbling worse than he is now if on a RCV. Go on Mr Honda - give him one please!

If you keep sounding the same shit, one day you might believe it.

Rossi would not be trounced by Lorenzo, it would be the same battles that it was when Lorenzo first went to Yamaha. Rossi might of lost credibility after the Ducati fiasco, but he hasn't lost the ability to ride a decent bike and if he was back on a Yamaha, handling how he likes it, he would be battling at the front again.
