You're deluded. It's up to you if you want to convince yourself that Rossi is 'concentrating on race set-up', just as it's up to you if you want to peddle that crap to everyone else.
Fact is he has proven time and again he doesn't have the ability to set up his bike with the soft tye to get a decent (relatively speaking) start position.
You really believe that he's doing 'race set-up' in qualifying with a soft tyre that won't be used in the race?Dream on or better still, explain the logic of race set-up with a tyre you won't use. He's 1 second slower than Hayden who didn't benefit from the track at the end of the session and 0.3 slower than a detune WSB hybrid ffs.
VFR, another deluded fan that can't face the truth and accept what you see. Yet again you throw the age gambit. Bollocks. If you're going to use that excuse, then the 5 back to back championships you cite as proof that Rossi would be riding differently now on the Ducati if he was 26 apply equally to the riders he won his 5 titles against. All been around a bit too long, a bit jaded and at least 7 years his senior and not really riding with 100% equipment.
Stats mean nothing when comparing riders from different eras. They're a headline with no context. To keep clinging to something that happened before Lorenzo, Stoner or Pedrosa were even in Motogp is truly desperate and irrelevant. In the here and now it's been demonstrated beyond any argument that he is nothing without a well engineered bike under him and further, that bike must allow him to ride exactly how he wants - he can't adapt.
As for development skills and feedback - Priceless. He can't even set this one up to use two different tyres
