of hearing this lame excuse after every race
Rossi has finished ahead of Cal in 3 of them, he is on his 6th race on the bike, starting each weekend with zero data.
He hasn't got zero data, he's been riding in Motogp for a decade and Yamaha have base settings plus Lorenzo's data from last year as a starting point. The set up of his bike looked fine, like it was on rails. At the moment he's just not fast enough to win or podium.
What data does Marquez have for his first year in Motogp, first year on the Honda and first year on any Motogp bike whotsoever. What data did Lorenzo have when he took two poles in his first three races, took podiums in each including the top one in the third?
Stop snivelling out excuses that you wouldn't entertain for any other rider and stop being so dismissive of the abilities of other riders. Rossi isn't performing up to the expectations of some at the moment and their, like your, disappointment, is being masked by looking for justifiable excuses. There aren't any.
This is Rossi and Burgess, the set up kings of the paddock. Saying they are struggling for set up is blasphemy amongst the disciples of St Vale, surely?
Cal is doing a good job at the moment, an unfortunate mistake this weekend but he's still holding fourth in the championship, one place better than he should be as a satellite rider you might say, but it's not, he's there on merit and he looks to have the pace to keep it too. Let's hope he does.
