Well perhaps it's just that Lorenzo has a smoother style, surely to beat Rossi and Spies on the same bike he has to be on the limit...

Personally I'd love Lorenzo to win this weekend and keep the title race going strong, but I don't expect him to win. I do, however, think he can podium and keep it going until Malaysia.

I want Stoner to win the championship from the "New king of MotoGP" sheesh. But not with a runaway. Having it come down to the last lap of the last race with a battle to the finish line would make things much more exciting in a year that was basically time trials.

A reality check for every motoGP fan.
Incidents regularly happen and riders often end up with a DNF and some of them with injuries that can see them off their bike for several races, some due to their own mistakes, worse for the mistakes of others and rarely due to mechanical issues.
Casey deserves the title for what he has achieved but if a self-induced mistake sees Lorenzo walk with it then he will also be a deserving victor for his tenacity.
Until Casey has a deciding points advantage he definitely hasn't got the championship in the bag and Lorenzo does still have hope.

Casey wouldn't have to push the honda turd so hard over the limit if the chassis was half as good as the yamaha. With all that power they should win every race but as you can see Stoner is making them look better than they really are. WITHOUT STONER HONDA WOULD BE LOST.

The other honda riders can't touch Lorenzo with a 10 mile stick.

Without stoner honda would have had Rossi or Lorenzo and still won the title at a canter, on what is the best bike of the 800 era, last few races it's been more dominant than the famous rcv211v ever was. Only a ***** could suggest otherwise..

I wish Lorenzo the best but it's a tall order to beat Casey riding this Honda on this track....

Confused, ya me too. Honda the best bike of the 800 era??? Not even close. Honda was the biggest disappointment of the 800 era, especially considering their 990 was the best of that era.

tools,
Lorenzo isn't making any claims or statements. Some uneducated jakazz from some wanabe media site asked another ultra dumb question and, poof,! the obvious was printed. Lorenzo knew a long time ago that Stoner/Honda was the best package. Any statements or BS quotes to the contrary are just tabloids way of keeping the non-fans of racing interested in a incredibly bad season in motogp (from the standpoint of good close racing).
