The set-up 'fight' reflecting a change in Rossi's standing
By:

Valentino Rossi returned to the MotoGP podium in the Andalusian GP, but it came after 'political' wrangling over bike set-up with Yamaha which represents another change in approach from Yamaha surrounding Rossi

The so-called "fight" that Valentino Rossi had to have with Yamaha at Jerez to be able to change the set-up of his bike is the clearest reflection yet of the change in stance taken by the Japanese factory in recent months.

Last Sunday, the Italian returned to the podium for the first time in over a year. Seventeen races had passed since the US Grand Prix last season and immediately after expressing his joy at the result, Rossi revealed that the key to his improved performance in the second of back-to-back rounds at Jerez was a modification the team had made to the set-up of his bike.
