Yamaha ‘happy’ to keep Valentino Rossi until end of 2016

Yamaha boss Lin Jarvis has spoken of his delight at securing nine-times world champion Valentino Rossi on a new two-year contract. Rossi’s deal to remain on a factory YZR-M1 for 2015 and 2016 was confirmed earlier this afternoon after the Italian’s impressive run of five of form in the first eight races of this season. The 35-year-old has scored five podium finishes...

"Saturn, if no one can beat Marquez, then why spend millions to come second/third/seventh"

I've long suspected you of being a simple cnt Bob, but that confirms it. Do you really think the powers that be race motorcycles because they're interested in who's fastest? Its a circus you fuggin clown.


Now stop talking shite so that I can continue my correspondence with my good friend Rolf Harris.

 Just like this place then.

Or a shop-window for the manufacturers to help them hawk their wares?

First thing sensible Know-all Coward has said in a while...

poor Bob

 Missing his fallen weak hero. Rossi got in his head after Laguna 08. Rosdi gave him s couple of  years rest when he failed to tsme tame the Ducati.  But now he's back up the front and racing again. Rossi has destroyed Jorge this season you just can't argue with that. Just because of the fact that last year you and dump foook Nostro kept saying how Jorge destroyed Rossi in 2013 you can't have it both ways


But Bob. And here is the big but. The weak fisherman will never return and race wheel to wheel with Marquez.  MM would send him straight back to peg 27 on the river un-bongo.  All things being = MM will = The same amount of MotoGP titles that Stoner left with


At least Rossi has the guts to stay and fight. Looser

F*cking yeah

Let's just gloss over his two years of abject failure on a race winning bike. He's no big deal.

Hello, hello

You can speculate all you like about what Stoner may or may not have done (this seems to be a preoccupation of Rossi fans rather than Stoner fans, oddly) and it will remain speculation.

Good luck to Rossi, he will win if he can, and enjoys being out there and still being competitive for its own sake. However, he isn't going to beat Marquez this year, and is rather unlikely to do so in 2015 or 2016 either.

DF. The fastest rider doesn't always win the title.

 A Stoner fan should be more than aware of this fact.  All sorts of pitfalls present themself over the course of a season.

Neither factory Yamaha rider seems to have an answer to the Marquez/Honda dream team at present - can't argue with that.  

Pol, Redding and Iannone didn't mind going toe to toe with MM in Moto2 and could challenge him again on the right bike IMO.

There is a simple way to know who's faster.

All years for decades Moto GP have been cumulating data on partials and lap times.
Last year the SloMos were jumping up and down claiming that Lorenzo was the best rider, best at developing bikes in the world...Blah.
Never bothered to look at the real world, while at Yamaha and Honda racing teams this is exactly what they do for a living.
No matter the number of wins, the kid was in is FIRST season in Moto GP, didn't know the bike, the tyres, the team, had to figure tyre and race management and learn everything while competing with No 1/2/3 in Moto GP.
Compared to another guy who had the factory wrapped around his little finger for the past 3 years and couldn't figure how to beat him bar starting from front and making a fast chicane of himself.
Because for those who haven't noticed, once the top 3 are passed him, he can't pass on the brakes, even his team mate if faster there. I wonder why?
