They are not about to spend much energy on going in a different direction for 46, he's there for optics, not wins.
Kinda sad, considering what Rossi did for the company. Not that they shouldn't brought on Jorge, but what we are seeing as a lack of "something" on the part of Rossi due to age, is really just a lack of something in the bike. He must be frustrated.
