"I will speak to the (Yamaha) Japanese guys, but I'm Valentino Rossi so it doesn't feel right that I should race with the slowest bike that breaks down too. We've seen today Pedrosa and Honda, so if we don't make a move the tyres are not enough.
"We could have done without this, because I deserved to get three or four points and get second. For sure it wasn't me losing second place but it was lost by Yamaha."

Yamaha boss Davide Brivio has apologised to Valentino Rossi for the Japanese manufacturers' poor 2007 MotoGP season.
Yamaha were no match for rivals Ducati for most of the season, and the Italian marque's rider Casey Stoner dominated the championship with 10 victories.
Rossi, who only needed one point in the season finale at Valencia to secure the runner-up spot, went on to finish in third place in the championship after retiring with a mechanical problem from Sunday's race.
The Italian's exit, together with Honda's Dani Pedrosa victory, left the seven-time champion in his worst championship position since 1997.
Rossi, who raced with a broken hand at Valencia following a crash on Saturday, was furious with Yamaha after the race.
Brivio apologised to the Italian and admitted the team will have to work hard during the winter.
"We must apologize to Valentino," Brivio told Gazzetta dello Sport. "Throughout the season we have always analyzed the season in a clear-headed way.
"It's obvious that in 2007 we've had problems with the performance of the engine and tyres. All of this can, in fact must, become a stimulus for our engineers.
"During the year we were unable to quickly improve the performance of the engine. We have a big job to do at home during the winter.
"To have Valentino Rossi in the team puts enormous pressure on us, and to support him we must put the maximum effort in. We did not hide behind Michelin problems, even when we could have done so."
Here's something interesting:
He had merely disagreed with the claims Biaggi made about why he wasn't winning races - Biaggi blamed the bike, the tyres, the engine, and Rossi felt that Biaggi should have accepted that sometimes he was the one at fault.
Maybe if he'd worry about his job as a rider, and not about doing the bike/tire engineers jobs, he wouldn't have these problems :shrugtho with broke motors and such, i can see how it would get u down and worry about riding bike past limit, it break and not finish race.
i'm just talking about what people think about him....I won't go that far..... Next year will be the real test imo.... if he fails to be up top then I would agree.
