After seamless the focus now shifts to braking and aggressive corner entry which are purely Rossi's strength in earlier years,, yamaha have trouble with brakes which even lorenzo agrees who uses less brakes than most others... Seems like yamaha is starting to recover lost ground against honda in terms of development...

Lorenzo is always working to get the best out of himself and care least about the rivals progress... PERFORM AND EXCEL
Rossi on the other hand is always searching for the rivals weakness... FIGHT AND ATTACK

Can t agree more with Rossi.. For me the way the Honda riders exit the corners so hard is due to the worck they did on electronics that manage very fast the Power and torque of the Bike.. I guess that the way there riders are able to worck the bike on corners and change direction faster is a result of the diferents design on bikes.. Wille the yamaha is Longer bike it loocks like riding on trails the Honda is a smaller bike and there riders are able to play diferently on corners, the bike can be more unstable but i guess that Honda is managing to Fix that problemes.. I like more to wach the Yamahas on track because they loock perfect very stable and smooth, Honda riders loock more unsave but somehow they manage to slow down the bike, and then they use the electronics very well to put the Power down and exit faster... Honda has been worcking on this since 2007 when they introduce the super small Honda, over this years that they where lossing they manage to fix there problems and is cle

I just told what i think aim not Pro enginer=), i just like to talck about this, engeniring is very exciting and is also part of the reasson for i wach Motogp, i whant to see the real weapons for Track of each manufacter why and how they build the bikes that way ETC.. And its caind true that the Honda HRC now feels a lot more like one Moto2 bike at least there riders are able to dance a lot more and Yamaha feels like Rossi say a more normal 1000cc bike more stable but at the moment slow because they can t worck the agilaty of the bike the same way..... Is like Cal told the bike is very fast but is more esay to ride alone and make the rigth lines for the bike insted of having a real Dog fight where we have to play around changing lines and turning the bike faster.. This video is from Kawasaki in 2002 but i enjoy a lot to wach because of all the excitment around one Motogp bike, have a loock is from 2002 but is very nice to wach and i like a lot kawasaki..
