Rossi slams Honda

Rossi joined Yamaha last year after falling out with Honda
World MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi has hit out at his former Honda team.

Rossi has switched to Yamaha for the 2004 campaign but feels Honda did not give his achievements due recognition.

He told Motorcycle News: "Honda did not treat me like I deserved. It's possible they would have won without me, but the RCV was made by me.

"Honda Racing Corporation people treat you like a state employee. You can win 30 GPs and all they do is try and belittle the achievements you had."
