Yamaha expecting less friction between Lorenzo and Rossi

Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo’s relationship will not be dominated by the friction and animosity that existed between the pair between 2008 and 2010. Rossi’s return to Yamaha’s factory MotoGP squad in 2013 has inevitably sparked talk of a renewed bitter rivalry with former foe Lorenzo. In their previous three-year spell together they had numerous on and off track clashes and Yamaha...

Yeah pretty much did shit himself! And then had to leave for a few races and essentially bitched out of the Championship because milk and cheese made him poorly sick!......oh wait....

You're right bud. But it doesn't explain how his 'poorly sick season' produced more wins/podiums than Vales 2yrs aboard the thing? Tata.

I think your comments underpin my point - age does count. All the riders you mention apart from Gibernau were on a downward spiral - that's it - Rossi is now in decline - he was the young pretender who took the crown and kept it longer than most - but will still show a bit of class before he finally bows out.  Every champion in every sport finally gets beaten by a young pretender and age is the key.

You are a cracker the way you twist and wriggle things about.
Was that the same HE that you talked about in a previous post but when I asked for a link to prove what he said you just ignored it.

a bt of spin, a bit of laying down the law, perhaps?

I'd say his comments are a combination of PR (standard corporate spin to suggest everything is fine and dandy in Yamaha world) and the real message of management; talking to his riders via the media, i.e. we expect you two to behave, okay?

There is always tension between team-mates, some more intense than others.

Neither man has won world titles because they are shrinking violets. Casey Stoner was another. He often spoke his mind, as did Lawson, Sheene and Roberts. Gardner once called his Honda a 'bag of shit', or words to that effect.

I think being a competitive (note that word) team mate to any of that lot would be a frictionfest of mind-games, if not outright hostility.

Once the season is under way, I reckon they'll be more concerned with trying to reel back the Honda's than fighting with each other. The good news for them is Casey isn't riding, and Marquez is something of a rookie, although that may turn out to be wishful thinking.

Either way, I cannot wait.

Buell old son...

To quote dear old Bob Monkhouse from Family Fortunes:

You said:

I think we know now it is not true because most of what you post is twisted bollox.

There were quite a few websites carrying the interview, I'm sure if you google it you'll find others. Contrary to what you'd like to think, I don't make crap up. I'd have thought with your 'connections' you'd have known all about this...

The analogy to Family Fortunes is quite apt seeing as how Rossi believes he's returniing to his family - that would be the marketing division then, not the race team...

By the way, I didn't ignore your request, I hadn't been back on that topic, so hadn't seen it.

Yep - sounds like typical modern day management, unable to tackle a problem head on..
