Well Lorenzo got beat by the Ducati of Rossi fair & square so we will see how he deals with the pressure of being the number 1 rider for Yamaha. From what all the riders said about the Le Mans track not flowing with lots of changes in direction would say that Rossi is making headway with the Ducati, and by beating the Yamaha which is known as a having better handling than Ducatis is great news for Rossi and Ducati fans.
The next step is to catch up with the Hondas who seem so far ahead at the moment could be more difficult. Stoner won a championship on the Ducati when that had the huge top speed advantage over the other machines so maybe he can do the same again this year. I dont think he can win a championship when the field is level, well not while Rossi or Lorenzo are in the running.
