Rossi bringing big sponsor to Yamaha?

Question in the title. Anyone heard anything of a big sponsor coming back to Yamaha with Rossi coming back? I was just curious since Yamaha hasn't had a big sponsor since he left.

2006 GSXR600 sold, 2006 R1 sold, 2008 Busa traded 2008 ZX14 totalled.

Supposedly a drink mfr. whether that is Coca-Cola, Pepsi, or an energy drink such as Monster is anyone's guess. Rossi's personal sponsor is Monster but they already sponsor Tech 3.

Ok, I wasn't sure if there was some news I had missed. Does anyone think a big sponsor will come with him? Or do you think Yamaha will be without a big sponsor again?

That's very true. He actually doesn't have the best record of all riders, but he's got the most public attention. That guy could get an old man in a white suit to buy a ketchup popsicle.

He's got the most premier class (MotoGP) wins in the 63 year history of the sport.

+His 9 world championships, 7 of those in the premier class. I'd say he's pretty good.

Seriously? Dude check your research. He's one of the most winningest riders of all time. You've got to be joking, right?

what does "winningest" mean? Is it total number of wins? That would be Agostini. Is it highest winning percentage? I'm not sure, but I'd bet he's not number one in that, either. There's any number of ways to consider what "winningest" is. That said, everybody on the planet knows (or should know) he's the greatest of all time.
