Oh of course he will! Rossi was just an ar$e with Lorenzo, so anyone would be better than Rossi! Rossi just couldn't accept being number 2 to Lorenzo!

Georgie, is just Rossi wanna be. He's just not that original.
I did like the Neil Armstong tribute, once.
Can't wait for next year, Casey/Honda, Rossi/Ducati, Spies/Yamaha, It's gonna be anyone's race. Throw in 2 wins for Pedrosa somewhere, maybe and you have season.

"there will not be a wall built between Lorenzo and Spies next season"

My understanding is that there WILL be a wall in the garage next year, as both prefer it as a way of working.

Unless you mean a metaphorical wall...

Sadly, I agree. Vale hasn't done himself any favours in that regard. I too was disappointed in his dealings with Jorge.
Sure, Jorge can be a bit cocky, and too fast for his own good, but Vale should have kept quiet in my opinion.

That said, with any rider, it only takes a couple of harsh (physical) pass attempts on the race track, to reset the relationship counter to zero....

I think JLo doesn't not recognize the threat that is approaching next year! The poor boy thinks he will have it a lot easier next season, but rather the opposite is most likely. Spies is a rising star and even his first year with the factory Yamaha could be victorious. SO god bless JLo
