Time will tell if he is fit for moto gp.

Where is stoner going next year???
FUCKING NOWHERE THE PANSY CUNT!
Look at their respective results in the lower classes, Marc is miles faster. He raped people so hard in Moto 2 that they were constantly checking his bike and accusing him of cheating. His brother is improving though and I'm sure Marc will eventually start slowing a little.

Of course not,neither would anyone else.
Thing is,his fans shite on about how he does it for the love of racing
when it clearly isn't the driving force in his career.
If it was,he would step aside and let a younger,faster rider take his seat.

Any one racing at this level has a drive to succeed and to win first and foremost imo.

True but people are driven by different aspects of sucess.
Lorenzo is driven by a need to win.Nothing else will do.
Doohan was the same,as was Stoner.
Marquez loves racing,as did Biaggi,Schwanz,Edwards,to name but a few.
Rossi is different.His motor runs on the adulation that comes with winning.
That's why he won't retire,as long as people are queuing outside his motorhome,he's going to keep at it.
He has so much hype going on now he doesn't even need to win,just turning up is enough.

Nothing stopping Yamaha running a third factory bike if they want to - it's been done before and Crutchlow currently has a full factory backed Honda. The Petronas bikes are also very similar to the factory Yamahas. Rossi clearly loves racing, the fans came as a result of that. He has always enjoyed the battles and overtaking (shit qualifying all his career meant he has done plenty). Why the hell does he have so many fans if he is just a money hungry cynical non racer that hates racing? His popularity dragged the sport out of a shitty period with terrible attendances and boring races and brought public interest back. I will say that I think this year he has definitely lost some pace and it might be a good time to retire.

Marquez is actually the most similar to how Rossi was, just with the ruthlessness turned up a notch. You see the likes of Stoner - he hated racing, hated close passes, moaned about everything if he wasn't just left alone to go off into the distance. This would be somebody that never seemed to like racing - he just liked going fast and winning.

So how comes he's still ahead of the much younger Maverick in the points table?

So he is indeed ahead of his much younger team mate on the same factory bike.
And also the leading Yamaha rider in the current points standings.

Thanks for clarifying that .

And yet he qualified 14th while two of his compatriots were on the front row.
They finished 1st,3rd and 5th.
But yeah he's the goat.

Yes thats a fact.
1 race is different to the 1 before and the 1 next.
Riders have ups and downs.
Sure wasn't long ago that Maverick had lost his mojo.

But your posts of Rossi moving over to make way for a younger faster rider is blown out of the water when you look at the factual points standings.

The chap is 41 and still ahead in the points standings,when compared to a much younger Maverick and he is still top Yamaha rider in the standings.

Do you want to acknowledge that as being fact,or try and gloss over it with your flip flop posts??

WTF has Suzuki got to do with Yamaha?
Nothing got to do with it,so that's total waffle right there.


Rossi is not so slow or past it after all like you like to claim. He's there to race as hard as he can and to try and win,just like the rest of the grid.

Points mean prizes and Rossi is still the top Yamaha rider in the championship,even if he is a slow aulfella now,like you claim.

You've been at this bullshit before "SoulX". You made a lot of stupid Rossi race performance
comments before and he ended up making a cunt of you with his results.
His results aren't good now so your loving it but I remember when he shut you up a few years ago.

Maybe it is time for him to retire but as your girlfriend says don't be premature... again!
