Looks like Rossi's contract with Yamaha will end next year. He is currently in talks with Suzuki

His contract was to end of 2016 season.   I doubt he will go to Suzuki,  or even continue in MotoGP. Getting a tad long in the tooth.   My guess is really cars.

http://news.superscommesse.it/motori/motogp/2015/12/motogp-rossi-suzuki-probabile-mossa-per-il-2017-119899/

Not saying it is not being written about.   Just saying I doubt it.  Just this past weekend Rossi apparently indicated that he would like to move to rally.   Of course,  not dates were mentioned. Suzuki will do great to get him for a year or so as he is extremely good at development.

Ja, just look at what he did for Ducati...

Sorry, but Rossi can't develop a cold, neither can Lorenzo for that matter. Their current bikes and gear boxes were developed by Colin Edwards, known to be the best development rider in Moto GP.
I just don't see Suzuki forking out that kind of big moola for Rossi and there certainly no obvious guys to step into the factory team, YET.
Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

Let me rephrase.   He is good at development for a team who actually takes input from the riders.

Well,  there you have me.   Colin Edwards known to be the best development rider in MotoGP?   Known by who?   Also,  to say Ross is useless at developing a bike, makes no sense as he is known to be a good developer.   Note!   Not once did I say he is the best.

He is credited with being the originator of important ideas and changes that first made Yamaha competitive in the 4 stroke era when he first joined them from Honda.

Not the role of somebody who does not know how to develop a bike. Who would of thought that changing the firing sequence of an engine would make a bike more balanced and easier to handle. Not many riders would have the know how or confidence to push that kind of change through the engineering team. Rossi has been acknowledged as one of the riders with most technical knowledge and ability to convey what he wants to the engineering team for many years. Maybe Colin can too.

To be totally real Valentino and Schumacher are the only 2 racers to have had the courage to leave a winning team and go to a losing team and make it work. Schumacher took his whole team to Ferrari. Valentino did not have a Ross Brawn and Rory Byrne to take with him. He still got the Yamaha to compete a lot thought he would fail at the time. He can develop a bike.

Just looking at the position of the front sprocket - what's below it in terms of engine?

Anyone got a pic of one of these GP motors?

This is quite a common misconception. Rossi rode the full 2003 season for Honda, then won the 1st race of the 2004 season on Yamaha. So he "developed" this bike for Yamaha over christmas 2003 so the Yamaha can be "competitive?? :eek7:
People seem to forget that 2004 and Rossi was not the first time that Yamaha has won Grand Prix's. Rossi got handed a winner from Yamaha, and I say this as a bit of a Rossi fan.

The Yamaha Factory racers for 2016 all together.  See Sheridan Morias shown by the red arrow who will be racing for the Yamaha Austria Racing Team in endurance racing again.  I wonder if Rossi asked Shez for his autograph?

See that skelm Rossi taking centre stage on the pic while the reigning world champion gets sidelined to the left. Interesting times ahead.
