MotoGP : Rossi : Zarco should reject 2017 Yamaha M1 next season.


Johan Zarco should turn down to ride Yamaha M1 2017 next year if offerred. says 9 time world champion Valentino Rossi 

Satellite tech3 team rider zarco outcome both factory yamaha on 5 occassions this season,finished 3rd behind ducatis Andrea Dovizioso and lorenzo at sepang last weekend.

Rossi and factory Yamaha team-mate Vinales continued to struggle with the 2017-spec M1 in the wet, ending up seventh and ninth respectively.


Both have compalined of a lock of rear grip, something yamaha's engineers failed to fix so far.

"Riding the 2017 bike in wet conditions is impossible and Zarco isn't stupid," said Rossi.

"The 2016 bike works well in the wet, so I understand why Zarco says he hopes he doesn't get this bike next year.

"He got his first Moto2 title in 2015 and when Kalex wanted to give him the 2016 bike, he rejected it - and he won the championship again."

Asked if he could be given a 2018 bike next season rather than a '17 version, Zarco said he trusted Yamaha would do whatever gave it the most competitive presence on the grid.

"If Yamaha has made some mistakes with the bike of this year, I don't think they will give it to Tech3," said Zarco. "There's no sense for Yamaha.

"The target is to have four bikes on the grid and Yamaha needs to have four bikes competitive."

Vinales agreed that Zarco should be reticent about the 2017 design, and suggested that Tech3 getting a current-spec bike next year would actually help Yamaha.

"Zarco would have more problems with the current prototype," Vinales said.

"However, it is always positive to have more bikes on track and I think he has already demonstrated that is able to give us useful information.

"We hope to have more information next year about what we try on the bike. It is always better to have data from three bikes, than just from two.

"This year, Zarco's data brought us nothing."
