Rossi clearly believes in himself. After the first few laps, his times often equal the times of the leaders. If the variable is bike set up, perhaps someone who looks at things with a new set of eyes can get the start of race set up better for Rossi. Besides, I wouldn't want to continue working with someone who really does not think I have it in me to win, when I feel/think otherwise. So good for so many years, hey, lets try a new approach.
