VALENTINO ROSSI:

We have a great surprise for you and for all the journalist here today so
prepare the pen, next year I race with another bike. (laughter)

"This is a very emotional day but I'm very happy as well because I
don't have any regrets and there have been no bad moments or thoughts
throughout these seven seasons together with Yamaha. At the beginning
it was difficult because to bring all the team to Yamaha I have to
fight, not fight but to work a bit because all my team say you're
fooking crazy to go with Yamaha, we will remain with Honda because it
is a lot more easy. But in the end I convince all the people and
straight away we have a good relationship, so all together when the
result was not fantastic we still have a great atmosphere in the pits,
this is the main reason for our success. From the beginning it was
something great and we worked very well together. Like in life, in
sport the results are crucial but just as important is the enjoyment
and we had this at Yamaha. We had a great fusion in my team - the
Australians, the Italians, the Japanese, the English and many more...a
lot of people all together having fun. If in 2004 somebody had told me
that I would win four world championships with Yamaha and 46 Grand
Prix I would have signed in blood! I am happy. I have to thank first
of all Masao Furusawa because we went through some difficult moments
but we were able to improve the bike and make it the best machine,
then I just have to say a big thank you to everybody who helped me in
these seven seasons, and wish everyone good luck."


LIN JARVIS:

"In 2003 when we had our worst year ever in GP racing (1 win by
Biaggi) and finally we said that whatever we were going to do, without
him on the seat (points to Valentino Rossi) it wasn't going to work!
That was the point where we decided that we needed him. There were
some exciting and secretive negotiations with Valentino and it was a
very important decision but, with the backing of Masao Furusawa and
the President of Yamaha Motor Company, we made it happen. We took
Rossi due or die. With a huge commitment from Yamaha, the engineers
and everybody in the team we made it work. We are very, very grateful
because Valentino's arrival really turned things around for Yamaha and
we came back to victorious ways. We are incredibly thankful and
grateful to him for that. We've had so many exciting and enjoyable
moments with him and with the crew that he brought with him, who are
great guys. Today we will be saying goodbye to a great number of
people including Davide Brivio, Jerry Burgess and the whole crew.
We've had a super time, it's been a really excellent team and we will
miss them tomorrow, it will be a strange day."

MASAMO FURUSAWA:

I would like to thank Valentino Rossi. I was in charge of Yamaha
MotoGp starting 2003 and it was a terrible year, almost like I was in
hell and I wanted to make the YZR M1 a better bike but more and more I
investigate the bike I needed something else more than the bike. So I
found Valentino Rossi pretty close to me but the first time I did not
believe Valentino would come to Yamaha because Yamaha was a terrible
bike and Honda was a fantastic bike. The after we invite Valentino to
Yamaha we finally come up from the ground and then after South Africa
in 2004 I felt like I was almost in heaven. So from hell to heaven
very exciting and memorable year. So in 2004 only Valentino Rossi
could win with the YZR M1 so he contribute a lot to develop the YZR
M1. This year not only Valentino but also 3 riders run fast so this
year our YZR M1 is a pretty good bike mainly Valentino contribute so I
really appreciate that Valentino contributes.

Basically the engineer design the bike but the rider talks a lot and
even though the rider talks a lot Valentino is special. He is almost
like anaylizer or engineer and we talk with each other so frequently
but timing is a little bit different but talking the same. he is so
precise, we always check the computer with data, sometimes I make
mistake, always Valentino is correct.



Bye bye Baby... hello Speedy Red V4...

Well...you can say what you will about Valentino Rossi, both good and bad, and I am by no means an expert, but I don't believe any other rider will have faced the challenges that Rossi has during his career when all is said and done. And that includes many magnificent champions who have come before him.

He has done it all in every class. Switched bikes/manufacturers and still won. Gone through class changes, engine changes, traction control changes, etc. Overcome serious injury and still was competitive.

I'm sure that he...and everyone at Ducati Corse (and some folks at Ferrari as well) will be very, very busy this Winter. He is not getting any younger, and the young guns are nipping at his heels. I believe that Ducati will be his last ride in Moto GP. I also believe that he will want to leave in style and on top of his game (think the exact opposite of Bret Favre).

I would consider it a massive warning shot if he finishes in the top three at the conclusion of the frist race next year. If he pulls out another miracle and wins out of the box...then watch out everybody else.

i think ducati and rossi coming together right now is perfect for both sides.

ducati is hopefully willing to listen and do whatever is needed to win and rossi is desperate to get the tititle one last time:rockon

hope all goes well and this is great for racing

Now, now Larry. BSL does not engage in personal attacks.
Lets roast Big Jami... don't engage in nasty personal attacks... only do good
natured jabs to the ribs... there is a difference...

Tragedy is if he falls and hurts himself. Comedy is if he rides into a New York pot hole and ends up missing...

You have completely missed my point, and turned it into a thread jack. Start a thread about football if you wish, this one is supposed to be about Rossi.
