| Yamaha's chief of motorsports, Masao Furusawa, is confident current changes can help deliver a truly competitive package for Rossi.|
Valentino Rossi has been reassured he will have a competitive bike next season by his new Yamaha team.
Yamaha struggled this year to match the Honda, Carlos Checa was their highest-placed rider in last season's championship, in seventh.
Furusawa commented : "We've recently made a lot of changes in our motorsport organisation and we feel confident that we will be able to produce the right package.
"We can't make any guarantees and we know it's not going to be easy but we're working as hard as possible to make sure the package is fully capable to get the results we desire.
"It is certainly our aim to put him in a position to challenge for race wins from the first race of the championship in April."
(Just a passing thought, there’s a catch 22 in this situation, if Rossi wants a chellenge to prove he can still win on inferior machiney and Yamaha pull's the stops out and supplies a competitive/comparative machine, is that truely a challenge and does that make his point? Hardly, well I guess he gets paid more to help Yamaha focus on producing a world beating machine.)
