"@Mr Flossi and others 'speed' no-excusers
Can you please tell the all of us the height and weight of JLo and Rossi and compare in reference to speed and bike handling?
Maybe I will hear something smart because so far I did not while reading all these racket science mature comments.

Cum' on boys, if you are seriously watching MotoGP, you should have realize that those two Yamahas are not the same. Just one thing, for example in electronics section, is enough to make them different. Don't forget, Rossi and Lor are separated by a wall in the garage.

If Rossi had beaten Lorenzo at this race we wouldn't be reading this kind of smart logic. Unfortunately you're way too late to pull these kind of conspiracy theories off because Rossi himself said Lorenzo was just too fast for him @

Nice try though.

Oh, and Rossi said the pass was too hard but quickly retracted saying "but that's racing".

Go to and read it straight from the gallina's beak.

"He squeezed me out a little bit - Rossi said - but that's racing and that's ok."

yes you're right...JLo was "just too fast" - this is the fact! But the question here is WHY Lorenzo was faster! I think this was combination of things including bike settings. When you have even the same bike (in general) but riders with 2/3 kg of difference in weight and 10 cm in hight, bike settings MUST be different. Compare with that Randy Mamola told about small weight distribution correction which gave Casey much more confidence of his Ducati front (Mamola Blog). So size really matters!

Stoner was operated from his wrist (no one mentions this) and since then he has been unable to ride at the limit and loose the bike when pushing which is the reason ducati has (too late) decided to take weight off the front and extend the seating distance a bit because Stoner says he's been too beat up at the end of the race. It has been working with mixed results.

Yes, a small change in setting can make a difference but if Rossi could not keep up with Lorenzo because of setting then he has to blame his "80 second" crew for it not yamaha. After all his crew is the best in the world when they win so I'm guessing they'd assume responsibility when they fvck up.

Lorenzo was clearly faster. He had a better set up, was more comfortable with the conditions. It's not rocket science.

Rossi wanted the wall and the stoppage of data sharing, a decision I'm sure he regreted on race day.

I'm not going to begrudge Vale a possible win in Valencia.Would round off his Yamaha days nicely. Welkom to Valencia.
However,its Spain,its not one his best tracks and and..
Advantage for him is that Pedrosa is no threat for the win.
Disadvantage for him is that George is on fire and you can't rule Stoner out.He'll want to give himself and Ducati a big farewell...mmm,Now some clown will predict a crash for him. Honda grunt could play to Dovi in a dry race or wet one.So,plausible,but unlikely unless he's willing to send it to the extent of bending it.

Not hiding the fact, I am a long time #46 fan. I find it hard to fathom that Rossi, finishing almost 15 seconds a head of third place, but still 10 seconds behind the winner. Like lorenzo or not, He had blazing speed. I feel confident in saying, lorenzo is not a better rider than Rossi, at this point, I would dare to say, they are both equal. A 10 second gap has to do a lot with the bike, and set up. There is no way, 99s bike is equal with 46s bike. Yamaha has no desire to see Rossi win again. Just my thoughts.
