Yesterday night the local radio of Tavullia (where Rossi Lives) announced that Valentino Rossi may begin next season without his legendary chief engineer, Jeremy Burgess.
Here's the Translation: (translated via internet tool)
TAVULLIA - Radio Tavullia never lets you down and when it launches its news these are real "bombs." The time of the evening between 22.45 Monday, November 5 and Tuesday 6 when the "bomb" comes to the reporter, precise, dry: "Valentino does not want Jeremy Burgess as its head coach."
The blast is large and that the impact and damage can produce will evaluate it later.
Butwhy a relationship that started life in 2000 between Valentine and "Jeremiah" (as Vale calls his crew chief) has enjoyed getting to this point?
Question from a million dollars and we look good in dall'addentrarci analysis at this time are difficult to verify, what we can say is that when results do not come, while your teammate in the same bike arrives at the finish line about twenty seconds before you, the relationship will inevitably fail.
If we add to what was stated in an interview that Burgess has issued to the Spanish newspaper Marca on June 13 of this year - "Valentino starts to feel the weight of age, time passes and if he wins another world would be a miracle" - we may have a clearer picture.
Perhaps that day, and the uncertain is a must, maybe we said Jeremiah had made one beer too releasing an interview that - certainly - did not do happy the Doctor who knows perfectly the theory of Burgess which states: "The result of a race depends on the pilot from 80% and 20% from the middle."
And the Vale National is one who does not appear but if you take it when someone close to him is not nice to him, and when he takes bad, you're in trouble. Serious trouble.
Bargess, was born in Australia, Adelaide Hills, born in 1953 (April 16) and has a degree in engineering. Bargess arrived in motorcycle world as a technician in February 1980, supervised the Suzuki Mamola. With the Suzuki worked until 1982, then switched to Honda where he worked for 21 years. Before becoming chief engineer in 1985 as a "simple" technical won the World Cup with Spencer.
From head coach has won with Wayne Gardner, Mick Doohan and Vale Rossi.
In 2000 Bargess arrived at the court of Rossi to "cure" the yellow Honda 500 cc. two-stroke 4 cylinder. A beast, a motorcycle for real pilots. Jeremiah did not trust much of Vale, was used with Doohan, a pilot edgy, Australian like him.
That is when he tested for the first time the two-stroke beast said to his crew chief, "Jeremiah, this bike to me you have to put (set) as I say." The second test, in Malaysia, Burgess since that was the bike that Doohan won everything changed nothing: It made us three laps went back to the pits and insisted: "Maybe we have not understood, so the bike I do not want it." At that point, Burgess knew that Vale had talent and also the "Zebedee" and the romance between the two began.
Until this year.
We do not know what will happen next year, what we know for sure is that from 2000 until the last Grand Prix this season, Bargess is not on the side of Vale on the track only twice: at Mugello in 2011 and in the next race at Sachsenring the poor health of his wife Claudine.
