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...

Shite article - worse comments

I can't believe I read the entire article when it became obvious that Rossi was not going to be quoted at all.  But then to optimistically read all the comments in the hope of some nugget of thought shining through ...... what a plonker I am.

That said .... I would take a bet at even odds that Rossi will win a race this year.  At any track that suits Yamaha he only has to beat Jorge (OK - maybe Cal if he is "on it") and the way Marqy Marc is riding he may not even have to do that.

Load of bollocks Wosi. Furusawa told us the main reason Yamaha signed Rossi: Given the doubts of the racing department, the marketing and communication of Yamaha became the greatest champion of Valentino's return Not to say they're not aware of his technical abilities, this role was created with the GOAT in mind.

Leecho, you're optimism is admirable..

..although I don't think there's space for a colostomy bag and Brylcreem on a modern era GP bike. I think Ago's hip's giving him jip too!..

Ha ha ha

It's quite obvious CHR during the two years Rossi was away Lorenzo turned the M1 into a one rider bike that only he can ride - look what happened to Spies last year.

Rossi and Burgess are at this moment down in the garden shed trying to work out how to convert the pizza oven into an autoclave for the new carbon frame they're building for the Yam.

Funny thing is Rossi is pushing the front end at the begining of the race and losing rear grip at the end of the race,sort of reminds me of the problem he sufferd for the last 2 year

All said and done

I guess Rossi just has to ride around M1 front end issues. Surely he has no business complaining about good old horsepower. Ducati gave it to him by the bucket load including seamless gear shift.

Blame it on Brivio and the Bridgestone tyres that had huge advantage circa 2005 and henceforth.

You got 'em,developed 'em Flo,use 'em. This ain't even no merry go round no more. Its fucking boring. Same old,same old.
