I can't recall JL complaining about the first two points on your list last year Bulto?
The second two points are the same thing and have always been Lorenzo's stock in trade..until this year.
Also, it may surprise you but Rossi isn't an engineer, he's a rider. He does possess an idea of what works for him though and communicates that clearly, which generally improves a bike making it easier to ride for others too, as has been proved in the past.
Some corners are not high speed, they're hairpins. Most overtaking is done into such corners on the brakes. This is what Rossi and Lorenzo, the parrot, are talking about.
You can't be so dull as to expect an official statement from Jarvis slagging Lorenzo's development skill, surely?
His own crew chief, Forcada, says he's weak technically. It's rumoured Honda didn't sign Jorge earlier in his career because they were unconvinced with his capacity to develop. Yamaha were concerned. Rossi led them from the wilderness 2004. They know he's good in this area.
If it was all about money/marketing, where are the big buck new sponsors like FIAT and PETRONAS?
We know it still irks you that Rossi took the pish out of Stoner like fans did too.
As for Rossi just being as fast as most, but only on a bike he's comfortable with?
That's the general idea..it means consistency. You don't crash and burn your championship aspirations by overriding to make up for the motorcycle's faults.
He's the most winning top class rider of all time. 9 titles, winning on 7 different bikes in 5 different classes. Is that a myth too?
If he wins again before season's end..will you do a disappearing act like you did after Qatar and Assen?
