Valentino Rossi has nothing to prove on Yamaha return

Valentino Rossi has nothing to prove when he makes a return to Yamaha in 2013. After a nightmare two-year spell with Ducati in which the Italian failed to get close to recording a victory in 35 appearances, the 33-year-old will make his hugely anticipated return to a factory YZR-M1 machine next season. With his career stats and reputation taking a battering in...

VR wants

that 10th world title, and I believe it is possible for him to attain that next year, before Marquez gets up to full potential, he's hungry to win again, and with Stoner out, it's his best chance, and good luck to him.

The only thing Rossi has to do is prove it to himself that's all

Rossi has nothing to prove in terms of achievement. He's already achieved more than any other racer in the modern era and IMO his record will stand for a very long time.  What he does have to prove is just to himself and that is that he can still cut it with the best and that the ill-fated disaster with Ducati is not the end of his career. Good luck in 2013 VR your hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide will be routing for you.

Yes rossi has nothing to prove, bur it will be great to see him up at the sharp end again. If jorge makes a few mistakes next year( hes due) or gets injured and has to miss a race or two( again...due) then that is time vale will take risks and very possibly take the title. You have to have a bit of luck to win...10,11,12 all had luck play a part. Go will be fun again next year....dovi is in for a rough ride

Am I missing something here?

He's taking a vast sum of money to compete to prove he's the fastest to millions of people who are in part, however indirectly, paying to watch him do it... & we still have people saying he has nothing to prove or that it's only to himself. If he has nothing to prove why is he racing?... do you think he's turning up as a grid filler for a wage?... don't you think he wants to prove that he's still worth all that cash?... how would it feel to have millions of people suddenly saying "do you remember Rossi?" rather than "watch Rossi!"?

It's got to be one of the most inane, ill-considered statements to come out of the sport (though Rossi himself has come out with some pearlers). Maybe I'm wrong... maybe it's all over... maybe people are happy with the thought that he was the best... whatever...

My sincerest good luck to him... prove you're the best again Rossi... give us a spectacle worth watching.

..has nothing to do with it.

Pride and a legacy is at stake here..far more important.

If Valentino is fast and can mount a title challenge with all his experience and guile, the past two years will fade and become a temporary glitch with Ducati shouldering the blame. He will be absolved in the eyes of most, especially if Audi fail to deliver a bike their new riders can consistently improve results with.

Rossi has nothing to prove in terms of his pedigree. You can't take away the fact that he's won more races in the top class than anyone else in history, that he is a nine time world champ on six different bikes.

But..if he struggles and the likes of Dovi start beating him, leaving Hayden eating dust, Valentino Rossi's reputation as the GOAT will be forever tarnished despite the abvove and, the claims that he was lucky to have ridden when he did and against who he did to amass the bulk of his outstanding record, will start to bear closer scrutiny by more than just the orange pom-pom waving gumbies.

Careful Wosi

you're straying into unknown territory there. That was border line objective.

Haha..the question is Nostro, have you packed away your thong and tutu get up?

Is Rossi in with a shot of consigning a difficult two years to bad luck and pig-headed Ducati management with a change in fortunes?..or, is old father time tight in his slipstream looking to sneak by with the twin bogeymen of doubt and dilemma hard on his heels?
