Valentino Rossi still not comfortable on YZR-M1

Valentino Rossi is still not 100% comfortable and confident on Yamaha’s factory YZR-M1 after an up and down return to the Japanese factory in 2013. The Italian made a fairytale return to Yamaha in Qatar last month when he produced a rousing recovery from seventh to second. But the 34-year-old struggled to a disappointing sixth in the inaugural Circuit of the Americas...

Caseys one and only piece of set up advice..."put a stiffer front tyre on it, without it I'm nothing"

How things change quickly I am not writing Rossi off completely but I think its gonna take time for him to get comfortable on his M1.

Superm....that had to hurt....I could almost hear the defeat as you wrote that. Chin up son, VR was great in his time but that time looks to be in the past...what a shame he didn't leave while he was winning...like a true champ :)

Rossi hasn't been comfortable on any GP motorcycle since the day Lorenzo was given equal equipment to him on the 800 M1. Haven't you noticed how it's taking him longer and longer to pluck his leathers from his arse with each and every outing? Not that I mean a David Emmett gay rider witch hunt style outing; although it wouldn't surprise me to read DE has offered his services to endeavour to alleviate this little problem of Rossi's.

SM. As an owner of one of the most hideous motorcycles ever produced (the mk.1 Multistrada, which you believe to be a thing of beauty?!) I hazard to think what you lie next to each night. But then perception and judgement have never been strong suites of yours have they?

Too late

To quit on top,only bayliss has done it by choice???? Give cal his bike so we can at least watch a Brit ride a factory bike without watching bt rip off sport.

Well with his experience

And his record he should be back on the pace in no time,However I think it's simply old father time that has crept up on him ,after his last two years his ego must be battered and bruised and then to find the rate at which the likes of Jorge,Dani,Cal and now Marquez have come on it must be another shock to the system,I have thought all along that Rossi will make the podium again and maybe even win a gp again but his Championship contention days are over,nothing can stop the clock ticking and the hunger and desire of younger riders,Get Cal on a full factory bike it's starting to stink that yet again a British rider no matter how good is denied the right equipment to do the job and if rumours are right those rules are not the same for the next tech 3 rider it's wrong especially when at present the 46 factory bike is underperforming

On top?

Never understood that quit at the top balls. It's human nature, and a competitor's nature to keep pushing 'till the party's over. It might be over for Rossi, it's certainly over for Stoner, and he didn't quit at the top. Third if I recall.
