Fire Wall At Yamaha Should Favor Rossi

Jorge Lorenzo is not happy about it, but Valentino Rossi got his wish. Rossi will not share data, including his bike settings with teammate Lorenzo during the 2010 MotoGP championship series.

The only question that comes to mind is this: Is Yamaha too cocky? Slowing down Lorenzo (Rossi’s intention, no doubt) can’t help Yamaha’s championship chances. Now that Lorenzo will start the series with a sore throttle hand (having broken it on his motocross bike a couple of days ago), his task will only be more difficult. If Yamaha ends up with all of its eggs in Rossi’s basket, some other team could step in and take this year’s crown (Ducati, for instance).
