Does this mean he won't be competing in MotoGP?



I love Rossi but now that he switched to the Yammer nail and proved that he could still completely dominate it, maybe its time to move on?



Not that I want to see Sete win anything.

Makes perfect sense. The F1 guys get obscene money to wheel those things around. Vale knows it and wants in. Ferrari needs a new hero and Vale will comply. It gives Nicky a chance at a GP championship for '07.

Bikes are cooler...besides F1 spoilers ruin potentially great front stretch wheelies.

That might make next year interesting.



It couldn't possibly be worse than this year. Rossi circulates for 24 laps, passes Gibernau on the inside and pulls a 2 second gap on the last 4 laps for the win. Nicky sweats blood to just make the podium.



But next year, he isn't going to risk his new multi-trillion lira contract with Ferrari. Riders with nothing to lose and everything to win might make some risky passes on him and he'll just have to pull back, ya reckon?

Wouldn't that make the MotoGp championship a little hollow? Sure it would be nice to win, but I would rather win against the very best. Can you really call yourself the best motorcyclist in the world if the guy who truly is the best didn't race.

Rossi pull back? I wouldn't bet on it, I'm not sure it's in his nature. I don't believe he likes finishing in second place.

It is the classic case isn't it?Everybody wants to race and beat the best,but time moves on.How I would like to have seen Rossi in the eighties championships against Lawson,Spencer,Rayney,Gardner,etc.

Sadly not to be unless some gamemaker makes a what-if game

Agree. Accept for Leguna, it looks as if Rossi just toys with the opposition. But he hates to lose. And his comments after Leguna show how it irked him to finish 3rd.
