Rossi to Yamaha - Edwards to HRC!

This is all posted on euro sites right now - looks like the rumors were close:

Valentino Rossi will communicate Italian medium messages to consequence on Sunday after the Grand Prix of Malaysia its change to Yamaha. This reports the on-line sport magazine datasport.it on its homepage. Contrary to the previous weeks, when the Italian press sealed a change Rossis to Ducati or into the formula 1 here, now facts are presented. Rossi, for which in Malaysia a second place is sufficient for title defense, is to receive a work Yamaha in the Gauloises team of the Frenchman Hervé Poncharal. The Gage is to amount to 10 million euro. Cigar advertisement would accept the 24-jaehrige Italians. It is not excluded that Rossis past main sponsor Repsol likewise changes to Yamaha. In this case it would not be impossible that Carlo Checa, which has still another valid contract in the official Fortuna Yamaha Werkstteam became Rossis team companion. Alex Barros is to free the place in the Gauloises team for Rossi and be used into the Honda Gresini team beside Sete Gibernau. Rossis freed place in the official HRC Honda team was received to Colin Edward. In the Aprilia team however the Frenchman is Olivier Jacque in the discussion, which will dismiss in the Gauloises Yamaha team.

more bad translations of a quote:

Rossi: ' With the Honda it is not a problem of money '.... "

WITH the HONDA It is not PROBLEM OF MONEy" still Lacks the official announcement, but Valentino Rossi is to a step from the Yamaha. "I will reveal my future in Malaysia, I do not know if before or after the contest - it has declared in exclusive right to As - With the Honda it is not a problem of money, but of mentality". The great challenge will be to equal Lawson, winner in the class Queen with two different Marches. "they would not dispiacerebbe to follow its passes to me and to gain World-wide with the two motion various ones" has confidato sorridendo.

It is not so crazy that Hayden might have an excellent season next year. He will probably step up on the Honda team and WATCH out. GOUSA

Rossi's bike is the flagship of the 211V fleet - he gets first say in any new part and also probably gets the highest quality components (i.e. piston machined to .00000001" instead of .00001" or some such)

Or for example exhaust parts that he did not like and turned down so it was given to gibernau (s/p?) and was beat with it! so he may get first crack at it but the parts do trickle down.

I would love to see Edwards back on a Honda

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

Rossi interview

http://www.as.com/articulo.html?d_da...&anchor=dasmot

Did the pressure on you by Sete and the media affect the soap opera that has surrounded your renovation of the Honda contract or the alternative of Yamaha?
-- (Thinks long about the response). No, it's only a sporting decision. But surely the pressure from the press has an effect on everything.

What can you tell me about piloting the Yamaha next year?
-- I'm not going to reveal anything about my future until Malaysia. I don't know if before or after the race, but it won't be long before an official announcement is made.

How are the negotiations?
-- The first option I have always preferred is to continue at Honda, although we had to change some things.

What things?
-- It's said that I want to be the number one rider for the factory by contract, but that is not the point of the conflict, because I'm already that. What I want guaranteed is that I will carry the weight of developing the motorcycle. To be the one who makes the decision about what direction should be followed at all times.

And they haven't permitted that?
-- The hardest thing about closing a contract with the Japanese is that they have a different mentality.

Aren't they giving you enough money?
-- Money is not the problem with Honda.

In addition to the offer from Yamaha you had another with Ducati.
-- I can't talk about that.

In Italy they said that Ducati tempted you with the option of going on to Formula 1 with Marlboro in the near future?
-- It's true that they offered me that possibility, but that's not the principal motivation for taking it. I race motos and the principal factor in making the decision is the moto, not cars.

Do you see yourself piloting a Ferrari in the future? You've always said you like rally more.
-- Yes, it's true, I like rally more than F1, but I think for me and the future it's easier to drive an F1 car than a rally car.

Do you say that because of your experience in Great Britain and the crash you had on the second stage?
-- Yes, the world of rally is completely different from that of road racing. In Great Britain we had a lot of bad luck. I think I could have done well because we tested before.

Going back to your jump to Yamaha. Do you know who the last rider was to win the premier class with two different marques?
-- Yes, Lawson (his eyes shine and he smiles).

Would you like to follow in his footsteps?
-- It wouldn't be bad to emulate Lawson and win with two marques.

Biaggi doesn't believe you'd dare leave Honda and Capirossi says he's the only one brave enough to change manufacturers.
-- I think Biaggi ought to talk about himself and leave Rossi in peace. What he says doesn't influence what I do. And Capirossi is the only one who's had the courage to change marques because he was out on the street. He had to do it, he had no other choice for continuing in MotoGP.

From AMASuperbike.com...

Q. Your bike occasionally sucks eggs in terms of trap speed as compared to the other Hondas. Do you have the same spec bike as Rossi, or what do you ride?

A. I have the same bike as Max and some of the others. I don't know, to be honest, where it is as to what Valentino rides. I did get the new exhaust recently which is good, because before that, on the line I couldn't hear my bike or tell what it was doing on the start. It made it difficult, lets say that, because the Ducati and some of the other bikes are so loud. The new exhaust helps.

I don't think it's my place to ask for the same stuff Valentino has—this season I'm supposed to learn the tracks and the bike, learn how the team works. Valentino is the world champion, I'm sure he gets new stuff as quickly as they can develop it. That's the way it works.

Going into the season, I thought Edwards had a better chance. Hayden has made me a believer though. He should be winning races next year. Escpecially if he gets the #1 HRC ride.

Moto GP rule

Isn't it a rule in FIM that you can't have 2 riders of the same nationality on the same team? Meaning Hayden and Edwards can't both ride for the Repsol HRC team.

Holy smoke, the little Italian went and did it. Well we now get to see if it's the bike or the man. I still think he is going to be TOUGH for a season or 2.

I'm mixed about Colin. In one breath I'm glad he is back "home" and it's a great opportunity for him. In the next breath he should have flipped Honda the bird. Oh well, next season should be interesting.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Kawi'd be better off using their ZX-10 superbikes in MotoGP than their MotoGP bikes. There's a reason Eboz isn't over there.

Edwards leaves 'prilla - it's offical!

THE FUTURE IS COMING

This is the last round of the 2003 season for the Alice Aprilia Racing Team. The Ricardo Tormo circuit is hosting the last race: the track is very slow but very exciting for the crowd as they watch the whole track from the grandstands. This is the last chance to get the best result of the season before the vacation but the Italian team there's a lot of work to do anyway: in fact they will test on the Spanish track since Tuesday with Marcellino Lucchi in order to improve the 2003 MotoGP project creating the 2004 bike. This is going to be the last race on the Italian bike for both riders: Colin and Nori will say good by to RS Cube this week end.
GIGI DALL'IGNA (Project Leader): "We have only the time to say good bye to Colin and Nori with the best wishes for their career and then we start immediately the 2004 season work. In fact we are going to test here after the GP with Marcellino Lucchi in order to arrange the future MotoGP bike. We will test the new engine soon but in the mean time we are working on the chassis setting. New chassis, new swingarm and different solutions to test and to complete. This work will allow us to create the bike for the next season. Now we are ready to end the season with a good result even if we are a bit nervous because of the tests".
