Agreed and I think there’s probably some truth to his evaluation of the pace of progress.Hard to tell if he's not as hungry or if what he's saying is really true... that other OEMs have progressed faster than Ducati, and he's so frustrated public expression is the only way he can apply more pressure.
Either way, I don't think it's the right approach, and won't work.
Maybe?Dovi sounds awesome, like maybe the relationship with the last teammate was not his fault.
I think you’re spot on....I just wish Rossi would retire himself and make room for younger riders. I don’t dislike the guy (although I lost some respect for him last year when he complained about his bike) but he has very little substantive contributions during interviews and his tactics have been superseded by all the younger riders.I don't think anyone will cut Rossi, even if Rossi was running 2nd to his teammate today which BTW, he didn't. Yamaha needs to keep all 3. Probably sorry they lost Zarco too (but perhaps they still have a hook into him while he's loaned to 2nd KTM?). After all, the purpose of MotoGP is to sell new motorcycles, too much good will into Rossi. He'll retire on his own terms.
