Valentino Rossi will be driving for Fortuna Yamaha in next years
MotoGP Championship... :eek:
During all these years he's been given a great Honda bike and
most importantly he has been given special treatment when it comes
to newer, more optimal parts for his bike from HONDA!

I'm really surprised when I saw the headlines, ROSSI changes team...
Even though I don't support him, I was hoping that Ducati had signed
him, seeing it was Yamaha (Fortuna) I was really surprised...

Let's C how Rossi will do for Yamaha... Yamaha that for years have felt
like 2nd hand next to Rossi's Honda and all the other Honda's for that matter, will now for sure put more time and
money to make better bikes and especially for Rossi!

Interesting will also bee to C if Honda chooses to open their arms and
pick another Honda driver as their #1 pet or they will give the same stuff
to all the top drivers at the same time...

Hope Ducati can find a way to keep their BEAST for a bike balanced!
if U saw any of last championship races U could see how the rear end just
would loose grip...

yeah i couldn't believe this either.

Im a big fan of Rossi and would have loved to see him stay at Honda.... but i guess its a new challenge for him and lets see how it works out.

I also heard that Ferrari were trying to lure Rossi into a full F1 test. Rossi's father was agasint it but who knows ! Its worth a shot. It would be fun to see Rossi in a Ferrari :D


anyway, bak to Moto GP, im pretty sure Rossi will do well in just about any bike .... what a great champion !

(too bad hes an Inter fan ...... :( )

I'm pretty sure he will :thumb:

Could be he's just trying to prove a point that it's not just the Honda that has made him 3 successive world champion :D

Though I'm sure he'll miss very much Jeremy Burgess and Doohan in his new team :down:


ps: I think Rossi hates Ferraris ;)

Yamaha did win the Constuctors in 2000 i believe.... but they haven't won the Riders championship since they won it in 1990, 91 and 92. Since then its been all Honda with the exception of Kenny Roberts who won it for Suzuki of course...

So Rossi could be the man for the job :)

naaa ! Rossi said it would be an honor for him to drive a Ferrari :)
:wallbang: Yeah I forgot, he wasn't anti-Ferrari, but more like anti-Schumacher :)

Heh, I once made a website on him...but I was too lazy to update it :redface: I think the last time I updated was in 2001!

Back to Rossi, actually I was hoping he'd try out the Ducati....:)

    FORZA BIAGGI! :D
    CARLOS "crash KING" CHECA! :D

    I read something about Rossi beeing linked driving Ferrari F1, lol!
    I don't know sounds more like something Perugia's president
    would had done if he ran FERRARI F1...

    Rossi drove a Rally race, if I remember correctly he didn't
    do that well!!!

    Forza anyone that can beat Rossi except Gibernau (spelling) :yuck:

    GO DUCATI!!! They are working alot with Ferrari, so lets hope they can
    improve the bike cause the beast got SPEED, ACC and is controled by great
    driver! Give it some balance and wohoooooo! ;)
