swimmer's point doesn't seem controversial: the Yamahas go well at Assen and Lorenzo has consistently beaten Rossi so far this season. Numbers don't lie, as Hayden once said, but they don't tell the whole story.
All well and understood. Rossi might not just have not just the setup right, but also his confidence back. I personally think the incident with Simo nd two shit years at Ducati fucked with his head, and at this level you can lose if you don't have your stuff together.
