Yeah, its very easy to label him a 'quitter' for giving up on the Ducati. Mind you its also easy to label Stoner a quitter for walking away from the championship.
There is one simple reason why Rossi MUST move to Yamaha... He has only a few years left in MotoGP, should he spend them fighting with a difficult bike which has no guarantee of being fixed in the next year or two, or should he not spend his last years in MotoGP with the opportunity to fight?
Whether that fight gets him podiums or wins or championships is irrelevant because he needs to be racing and not not 'fixing' at this point in his career.
