Forget Stoner and Lorenzo's flip flopping ego's of a non bike related nature like..
No, I will not go to Motegi from Casey and Lorenzo wanting to validate his 2010 championship by beating Rossi in a head-to-head, getting what he asked for at Motegi 2010, then whining and complaning to Yamaha.
It's difficult to constructively criticise in a technical manner when you haven't got a clue.
Stoner tells us he asked for stuff at Ducati but was ignored. He won't divulge what it was though..why? Because he didn't ask and was happy to be the only rider capable of results using his undoubted ability to ride around problems. After his first test on the Honda, it was rumoured he was doing somersaults of joy the bike was so much better than the GP10 he'd just hopped off. He didn't know what a good bike felt like as he'd never ridden anything but Prezels bastard.
Lorenzo jumped onto a fully developed championship winning bike. He didn't have to steer development direction, Rossi was there. His technical understanding is limited..which is why Yamaha want Rossi &co. back. They are worried their bike will stagnate under Jorge's lead. Think about it..other than we need more power, what have you ever heard Lorenzo say that is remotely technical?
Rossi towed the company line for over a year, even taking the can himself. He ran out of patience at Qatar this year and fired a warning broadside at Ducati. The writing was painted in dayglo on the wall. Ducati brought nothing to the table, so he approached Yamaha..who yanked his arm off to sign.
I thought a lot of you Rossi haters were here for the wind up and knew your onions but, the lack of depth to your knowledge and grasp of all things MotoGP..you're inability to think for yourselves and join the dots into a coherent perspective, has got me fearing for some decent banter this winter.
Where the fk are you Bob..?
