Jorge Lorenzo tests 2013 Yamaha YZR-M1 in Brno

Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo has made his debut on Yamaha’s factory 2013 YZR-M1 prototype machine at the Brno circuit today. Lorenzo started the one-day test lapping on his current YZR-M1 1000cc machine before he switched to the new bike at the mid-morning point. The bike was in full black carbon bodywork but featured a new chassis and fuel tank. Lorenzo will be joined by...

Next Year YZR - M1 will really

 

be Rossi's input. That's what Masao Furusawa said:

 Q: There used to be quite a lot of tension in the Yamaha garage from 2008 to 2010 because of the rivalry between Jorge and Valentino. How will it be next year?

MF: I presume the tension between them will rise again. I wouldn’t be surprised if Valentino thinks to beat Jorge before his retirement. He is such a determined rider. I feel sorry for the boys in their garage because they have stomach ache once again!

Apart from that, I think YZR-M1 could be more stable. This competitive bike had been developed with the help of Valentino by taking a lot of time. With his coming back to Yamaha, a course of its development will be even clearer.

Rossi is sorely needed at Yamaha

as Moon man have been beaten by Honda's latest RC213V, three times in a row by Dani. Yamaha cannot afford to wallow in it's development at mid-season and hope to win. Especially with Honda churning out version after version to cure the chatter.

Jorge has got to be able to guide them with his de-briefs so that they can machine the parts needed or the electronics required. Right now the RC213V looks like a rocket on the straights and what's more scary is the cornering is almost on par with the M1.

Analyse this,analyse that

Apparently George is not too taken with the 2013 chassis. Not knocking it mind you.

Ah what the hell ! Rossi and Burgess will fix it. Deja Vu.

Twice by Dani. Casey won at Laguna. Agree with you otherwise.

Your having a laugh !

    Rossi is needed at Yamaha ! Youre having a laugh ! Rossis sponsorship money is needed at Yamaha more like.If Rossi is so good at developing a bike then what the hell has happened at Ducati ? Two years & nothing to show for it thats what.

    As for Moon Man LOL,What do you expect him to do when the Honda is more powerfull ? Ask for a set of peddles to be fitted to the bloody thing ! You obviously think that Rossi is the answer to every thing ! Well sorry to bring you down to earth but he isnt.

    Its people bigging up Rossi all out of proportion & talking trash about other riders that results in Rossi getting such negative posts on these forums.But I supose that the whole point,thats what people want isnt it.
