Default Re: Valentino Rossi back to Yamaha in 2013!

made MotoGP a two team showdown.

Ducati is a great team but they never got around experimenting, they insisted with Carbon Fiber chassis and grunt but that is not how corners are carved. It was funny to see Rossi taking a totally different line compared to his earlier seasons. Now that he is out Hayden will be number 1 and his racing style is very akin to Stoner so might be he comes in 4th.

Hondas have done tremendously well with development to beat M1 Yamaha. The machines were improved and thus Stoner killed the field last year. This year Yamaha are closer but Jorge is fighting every race.

Those who say Rossi is not hungry might have to rethink once he is back at Yamaha. Competition is great but unless it comes from within, races are not won. Thus Rossi might be the wild card and Jorge will be working hard this fall to fend him as No. 1.

Yamaha Vs Honda next season becomes and Ducati will be hard pressed with satellite teams.

Looking forward to the season. Cheers!

In Car racing it is 75% Car and 25% Man. In Bike racing, it is the opposite. The ratio was further towards Man when 2 strokes were at play.

Let us wait till 2013. The whole world is having a field day.

To me Rossi wasn't natural on the Ducati and that it was someone else in his leathers, heck he appeared older. I always thought & friends, fellow enthusiasts echoed the same emotions.

Sharing two pictures which shows it him

Nice to see Vale back on the M1.

I still have the #46 Yamaha tee which I bought from Leguna Seca.

The first test was marred by rain.
