Did you watch the race last week?
How can you say that Yamaha own Honda when the nearest was 15+ secs way way back and could not even get close.

They only got 2nd cuz one Honda crashed and by the time Yamaha had got over the line Dani was showered, shagged and down at the boat club bragging to his mates.

I think if Honda do well this weekend we know that everything has changed at the front and the Yamaha early victories were down to bad Hondas

Marcos Hirsch -Lorenzo's former manager- explained in a radio interview this week how the negotiations with both HRC and Yamaha went. First they spoke with HRC, and their first and only offer was very large and, in Nakamoto's own words, "more than what (he) offered Stoner when he went to Stoner's motorhome" to try to change his mind about retirement (rumored 12mil at the time). Nakamoto said they wouldn't get into a bidding war with another Japanese manufacturer. With this offer in hand, Lorenzo and Hirsch met with Jarvis and told him about HRC's offer. Jarvis response was "I guess it's a goodbye, then", because he thought Yamaha wouldn't be able to match it. Days later, Yamaha not only matched the offer money-wise but also improved other points of the deal. And Lorenzo signed.

So apparently Lorenzo will earn "Rossi money" for the next two seasons. It speaks loudly about how much both HRC and Yamaha value him as a rider.
