Valentino Rossi: Marquez not Honda making difference

Valentino Rossi says it is the man and not the machine that is propelling Marc Marquez effortlessly towards a successful defence of his MotoGP world title in 2014. The Spaniard was unstoppable again in Le Mans yesterday when he recovered from an early off-track excursion that dropped him to 10th to win for a fifth successive race from pole position. With just...

Speaking of fairies Wosi

Are you perhaps a woman pretending to be a man pretending to be a woman, since we seem to be down to triple levels of meaning now in regard to the old debate. 


What I have never done is claim that any of  Valentino Rossi's titles were illegitimate. If  this gives me the high moral ground, so be it. If crediting riders who won titles against him for doing so makes me a Rossi hater, again so be it.

Dear oh dear Buell

Have you nothing to say about Motogp, interesting or not doesn't matter, anything would be a start.

Or do you prefer acting the fool with your double persona nonsense.

Wosi is in the closet, therefore his first insult is always to accuse others of what he hates about himself. Classic projection. Probably ex military and a self employed working class tory to boot with a sexual preference of anyone young and boyish.

Why did Bridgestone change the tyres yet again when we had such a very good title fight last season. Can't see that it was to suit a huge increase in the performance of the 1000's, can't see that it was to improve the performance of the non factory bikes, can't see any safety reasons, natural progression of their product ? can't see that either but I did see their employee Valentino being totally outclassed by his team mate last season. Go figure.

I don't attack Rossi as a non fan, in fact I though he was great when he first came into the sport, but when Iooking deeper I saw favouritism from Dorna and Michelin, Bridgestone and even within the Yamaha factory team. I like to see him doing well, the more at the front the merrier but I don't subscribe at all that it is he and only he that brings the series to life. It doesn't matter who is battling at the front as long as there is a battle.

yes bulto

plenty to say but I get a bit despondent when I read some of the crap on here especially all the hypocrisy.

Once again what year were you referring to?

Simple question really.

Don't like hypocrisy Buell?

You're having a laugh surely, it was such blatant hypocrisy I was commenting on that you once again saw as Rossi bashing - about as far of the point as you could get. In addition, you made no comment yourself about said hypocrisy which you claim to hate.

As for the year I don't remember but as Rossi and Lorenzo were only at Yamaha for 3 years together it shouldn't be too difficult for you to find a Mugello result with the finishing order I gave

I share your view about the tyres

Same as in 2012 when they changed a perfectly good front tyre (twice) for one that didn't suit Honda, supposedly on safety grounds the second time, even though there hadn't been a single safety issue raised by anyone.

Where are the ethics in having a single manufacturer supplying a control tyre to every rider, but allowing that manufacturer to use one rider as an effective employee to promote their brand. Wouldn't it be natural for the manufacturer to want that rider to get results in the promotion of the brand, which itself just raises questions about the integrity of that manufacturer and the intentions behind repeated changes in tyre construction

maybe 09?

I think you were talking about 2009 the year Rossi won the championship and Stoner was fourth.
Maybe he did look a bit fed up at one point but I can assure you he was full of smiles later.

As for tyres....safety issues were very apparent at the time...get a grip eh!

Safety issues Buell? At what point in time exactly are you referring to?

As for Mugello, looking a bit 'fed up' at one point is not the same as sitting on the bike in the winner's enclosure, not taking your helmet off, not talking and having a damn good sulk because you've been beaten in your home race after a good scrap with your team mate. What happened to it being 'fun', regardless of who finished in front? There was no attempt to barge into Lorenzo's TV interview and congratulate him on his performance.

Contrast that to Rossi's behaviour at the next race - Lorenzo's home race where he beat him with that last corner overtake. It was a brilliant last couple of laps and Lorenzo took too wide a line and left just enough of a gap on that last corner which Rossi brilliantly took advantage of. It should have been enough that he'd won an enthralling race but he had to make a point of it by interrupting Lorenzo's live TV interview to 'congratulate' him.

And that to me sums up the hypocrisy, of the man himself and his fans.

you are a biased clown with a big hatred of Rossi.
The garbage you type is monotonous to the extreme.
I am off to Mugello on Monday and I am sure all proper race fans and riders will be smiling...I certainly will...:lol:
