Yamaha hoping for more wins from Valentino Rossi

Yamaha hopes that Valentino Rossi’s long-awaited return to winning form in Assen last weekend is the catalyst for the Italian legend to claim more victories in the 2014 MotoGP world championship. Rossi’s brilliant victory in Assen was his first since the Malaysian Grand Prix in Sepang in 2010 and came just a time when doubts were creeping in about his potential...

An article about wether Rossi will win again or not and no comments. I'm mystified.

Obviously they are hoping for more wins, why do we need an article to tell us this? In other news, Microsoft hope to make a profit this year.

like the amount of attention articles about Rossi attract. It keeps the punters coming onto the site.

The post-win article attracted about a squillion comments.

Poor old George

Done his damndest for Yamaha, a focus unsurpassed within their ranks since Rainey,Roberts and Lawson and the thanks he gets from Jarvis is...'I hope Rossi wins more races'. Hullo !!! I hope Lorenzo wins many more this season. Afterall Lyn, it is a team sport and Team Yamaha need Lorenzo to win a hell of a lot more races than Rossi to keep the riders title. Maybe time for George and his management to talk to Paolo Ciabatti. Clearly this Jarvis comment suggests Valentino's single win in 2 years is eclipsing Lorenzo's star within the camp.

His retort would no doubt be that within the interim,given George's injury we need to take points off #26 and #93.. Defensive fool. Lorenzo needs to be in a position to attack HRC. Anyway,for the sake of an HRC championship lets hope Rossi wins the next couple of events prior to the summer break up North.

Yamaha pay's him the most chose him above rossi he ride's hard and with passion and is as we all have withness a strong guy to. see how fast jorge was in assen.... even rossi thought : he's realy close now. if he was healthy no doubt about it Jorge would have won the race easy.! but then again rossi won the race. no could should would have.

JL doesn't necessarily have to win races, he just needs to finish ahead of the Hondas. It will help as well that MM will take a few points of DP.

If there is no could, would, should have, then why bring the subject up. Also, the other 4 are very competitive, so to say that JL would of won easily is a stupid statement.

Not sure

that it is that stupid a statement to say Lorenzo could more than likely have won. Easily is probably overstating it and another matter altogether.

When you consider the lap times he was putting in with a plated collarbone and all the tissue damage that goes with it, the lost set up time and starting 12th on the grid to reach 4th in as many laps, you'd surely bet for than against a fit Lorenzo winning that race. Fourth fastest lap of the race, just a tenth and a half off fastest and lapping in the same times as the riders ahead of him for the first dozen laps or so.

He'd have taken some beating.

Is this Jarvis fella who is saying he had no doubt Rossi would win again, the same guy that was ready to re-sign Spies and made no attempt to sign Rossi. It was Rossi who approached Yamaha which hardly suggests the race team actively sought to bring him back. As for "But the fact that he can win races, be a great team rider, great ambassador and animate the sport, we always believed in that" 

Well why didn't you make the move to sign him, knowing he was ready to leave Ducati, as opposed to wanting to retain Spies? When asked why they'd taken him back there was no mention of winning, there was some corporate and opaque blurb about how they'd had good times in the past and how it would be fun to have those good times again, plus the usual reference to promoting the brand and the need to 'animate' their business.

Is Jarvis really this two faced or has something been mis-reported in previous news items

Lorenzo can't win them all. If Rossi is there to step in when he can't , go for it. It's called RACING not hand the title to out.
