Rossi on defeating honda.

copied from the wera board:
------------------------------

Well, yeah, its in a ferrigners language

http://www.tgcom.it/sport/articoli/articolo232752.shtml

But from what I can make out it says:

"With Honda the humianty is almost inexistant"
"With Honda, if you win you have done your job, if you come second it is a tradgedy"
"Initially, when I made the switch, I was full of doubt, but after my first race I had demonstrated that determination is more important than the bike"
"Those at Honda are all bourgeous, whereas the Yamaha people are more down to earth"
"Previosuly the Yamaha had seemed hard to ride, putting everyone one their ass as soon as it got out of shape. However, by the end of my first race, I had shown that determination is more important that the machine."
To conclude Rossi says "Sure, the Yamaha is at fairly well optimized, and for sure I could not win on a mediocre machine - however, my champinoship shows that the machine is not fundamental, adn answers all those that said I ONLY won because I rode the Honda."


Anyway - thought you might be intrested........perhaps his comments have already been released in English speaking press elsewhere??

Rossi is just an unbelievably talented rider. He makes winning MotoGP races look so effortless.

I'm really happy that he won the championship. Honda didn't realize the talent they had and didn't give him the respect he deserved. Not only him, but his crew as well. They made the Yamaha a top performer. The machine was good, but the human factor made it a champion.

Rossi is also quite likable. He's gregarious and outgoing, so unlike Biaggi. Rossi stays after the races and hangs out with the press. And he's always smiling; he genuinely enjoys what he does and it shows on the racetrack. I hope we see many more Rossi wins in the next years.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

translated: (edit: his name is Red translated, lol)

"To the Honda the humanity is nearly nonexistent". The neo champion of the world of the MotoGp, Valentino Red, it has explained also therefore its passage to the Yamaha the past
summer. "With the Honda if I won I had made spell - it has said taking part
to" Controcampo "- if instead I arrived second were one tragedy. To the beginning I had many doubts, instead end from the first contest I have demonstrated that the
determination is more important of the vehicle ".

Red it is much hard one with its former square: "Those of the Honda are more bourgeois, if they pull it a bag. Instead to the Yamaha they are more ' campagnoli'. With the Honda if I won I had made spell, if instead I arrived second tragedy was one ".
On the passage to the house of Iwata, Red it has added: "This motion seemed difficult to guide, to put to point, a motion from which all fell, as soon as they tried to dare a little more. Instead end from the first contest, even if we were not totally to place, I have demonstrated that the determination is more important of the
vehicle ".

In order to conclude one stilettata to some its you avail again in the
circus of the motomondiale: "Sure the Yamaha is optimal an average one and I could not gain with
one mediocre motion, but he is not fundamental: this in answer to how many said that I won only why I guided the Honda
". Valentino is already ready in order to face the new season.
