Buriram, EN runganSport — Throughout 2018, Movistar Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi has never won again.

More precisely since the Dutch series in 2017, Rossi and Yamaha no longer feel the victory.

Yamaha’s main problem is with electronic systems, which greatly affect speed when going in and out of corners, and sometimes always have problems with Michelin rear tires.

Yamaha’s condition is still the same since the beginning of the season, it cannot win and is increasingly less competitive.

Even Rossi himself reminded Yamaha, that good results in Thailand could not be a benchmark for the actual performance of M1.

Rossi stressed that Yamaha’s competitiveness in Thailand did not necessarily solve the fundamental problem of the Japanese manufacturer.

This condition also raises rumors that Rossi will soon retire because of Yamaha problems that have not gone away.

Rossi’s contract with Yamaha will actually end at the end of the 2020 season, but lately the Rossi issue will soon be retiring sooner than the contract period.

However, these rumors were directly challenged by The Doctor.

“The difference between Yamaha and Ducati and Honda is huge, because they work harder lately.

“We have to focus on fixing our motorbike package in general, but it seems that machines and electronics are our most lagging zone,” Rossi said as reported by Corsedimoto.

Rossi also denied that he would retire because of the Yamaha problem that had not been lost?

“I have actually signed the contract officially with Yamaha for two more seasons.

So, I am very confident that I will continue to perform in 2019 and 2020.

I certainly will not change this plan. I still want to race as long as I’m still competitive, because I really enjoy the feeling of being a racer after winning or taking the podium, ” concluded the Italian rider. (DN/eV)

Madrid, runganSport — Spanish sports media, Diario Gol reveals that Movistar Yamaha MotoGP team, planned to release their flagship rider, Valentino Rossi, in order to bring Marc Marquez later.

The plan is predicted to materialize for the upcoming 2021 season.

This speculation is further strengthened by the arrival of Jorge Lorenzo to Repsol Honda starting next year, this condition will certainly heat up the atmosphere on the Repsol Honda team, between Marquez and Lorenzo.

So, this will be a kind of encouragement to enlarge opportunities Yamaha easier to get Marquez.

On the other hand, Yamaha is seen as a wise choice for Marquez, because two other manufacturers who also want Marquez, namely Ducati and KTM, do not have a motorcycle as good as Yamaha.

Plus Rossi is now aging, will make Yamaha consider to remove the Italian man.

Since joining the main class in 2013, Marquez always appear to dominate with Repsol Honda.

So, it will be very interesting for viewers to see how the action is on other bikes.

Also 8 years with Repsol Honda has been a long time for Marquez to be in the same team.

2021 could be the right time for Marquez to feel another color in MotoGP, as well as proving if he is good on different bike. (DN/eV).
