Actually if you read the book "wide open" by Jeremy McGrath he speaks about this at some length with Honda. Yamaha had always been looser with this type of rule. I also suspect with Rossi running a school Yamaha likes the brand feeder from such a setup.

Whose going to replace him? Lowes and/or VDM from WSBK in to the factory team as a thank you for Suzuka. Or move a tech 3 guy up and one of those two in at tech 3 instead. Their test rider? Beaubier? Ellison?

Personally I'd like to see rossis greatest fan and star of this forum mark have a go just so he can prove how slow rossi is.

The problem is that all these guys on the Moto GP grid, even last place, are riding at such a high level they have to be on a bike constantly to maintain their edge.
They can't let their reflexive response lag, they are way beyond exercise and diet, with a couple of creative visualization sessions thrown in for good measure.
Thats what makes Rossi such a freak of nature, most humans can maintain that level of intensity for 10 years or so, before they're done. Then throw in travel, media and sponsor obligations on top of that!
