Talking the talk is starting

I guess yamaha and everybody else is FINALLY realizing what i have been saying since the ducati days. 10 will never happen. results are getting worse and you need to actually win races to be hopeful for the title.

Zarco saying exactly what i have said for years. you HAVE TO be on a factory bike to have a shot at the title. I deserve 46 seat and it would be a dream come true. Zarco knows he is a better rider. Yamaha knows it. 46 knows its and all of 46 fans know it even if they dont admit it.

MotoGP?
Thanks from Halo2 and vinstep

This reminds me of the Schumacher scenario in F1. He should of left it, he should never have gone back, he should of left while he was on top.

This is no different. I saw what he tried to do, to get an Italian on top on an Italian motorcycle. I get that, quite a noble cause, just didn't happen.

Time to bow out.....

Rossi has a contract for life cause he IS MotoGP!


....Nah, but he has his Moto 2 & 3 teams to build, market and manage so he'll be around and involved.

Rossi is still competitive thou.

He hasnt slipped down the order into obscurity.

But there are other riders who are coming up (Miller, zarco) But they would be snd pick by the top teams against the bigger names.

Im enjoying watching Vinales out in front, rather than the Marquez/Rossi two-some. (I work with to many Rossi/marquez fan boys)

Then Zarco will get the seat in 2019 and Rossi will start his own race team, which may even include a MotoGP effort on top of Moto3 and 2.

One minor flaw with that line of thought, Valentino riding around at the back of the pack will generate 20 times more revenue and 100 time more fan interest then 10 zarco's running up front. MONEY makes those bikes go round.
