“For the moment we didn't find any improvement, any positive things, so we still have some work to do” - Jorge Lorenzo.

OK, this is interesting. Honda gave DANI a complete NEW BIKE with NEW ENGINE at Laguna Seca and it was allowed, didnt affect his allotments, and all new engines for the remaining 3 he can use.. Why then would it not be possible for Yamaha to do the same? Hmmm... HONDA pulls the strings behind DORNA finances. FOOK HONDA and thier SOULESS CORPORATION. This is all about getting HONDA the Championship they purchased. They will ruin this Race series just as they did to CART/IRL...

@ Schnertz

Instead of making an off-the-cuff statement, maybe you should research the rules FIRST.

As for J.Lo not noticing any improvements, I wonder how different - on paper - the 2013 bike is from the 2012 bike. Maybe the Yamaha is at it's developmental peak??!!??

I thought Lorenzo and his crew are the best and have developed the best machine. I thought they don't need Rossi's input, I thought Lorenzo himself has valuable data in his pocket. Jorge used Last years setup which means he has not made any improvement in setting up that bike. lol lol now all fosterer schoolboys will be here braging about what a good developer Jorge and his crew are. I wonder, does Jorge has any crew?? if does, are they active?? or just there to be there?? well thanks to Rossi and Yamaha for handing him that title winning machine and valuable data. Yamaha realized how important Rossi is. Bring on 2013 and big shell of free range eggs.

Sorry Lorenzo, you wont be able to improve because the tires are made for your bike and if you improve braking or acceleration you will develop chatter or instabilities. SOrry Lorenzo, either suck up chatter and go faster or keep on your precious bike/tires and pretend your the best.

@pcxmac: buddy, you should really look into getting a life.

re: the engine allocation comment: the point with the new chasis being compatible with the current engine means that Lorenzo could use it with the engines he is rotating at the moment. If the chasis wasn't compatible, and was a huge improvement, he would only have one engine available to use with it before he was forced to start from pitlane, because he's already put into rotation 5 of the 6 engines allowed (because of what Bautista did to him at Assen.) HRC introduced the new bike earlier in the season and had more engines not yet in rotation, so they could introduce newer models.

Its clear that Rossi will once again show the way for development.
Lorenzos inouts have hit dead-end and Rossi can pull something out of the bag.

For all those thinking Rossi is going to be number 2, think again!!!
Check out the pass he made on Bradl immediately after Bradl overtook Rossi.
Rossi is an old-fox. He is going to wipe out the competition.
I am sure that after trying to tame the red piig, the yamaha will be rather too easy to ride.

No Rossi, no improvement. Even Masao Furusawa said (at the end of 2010) for JLo:" Jorge is still young and a 'curious boy'. He is still growing up. So far he has almost no knowledge to develop the bike, to be honest, but I'm very much expecting to look at him for the next couple of years. He is changing a lot." The whole iterview is here at

This is another Furusawas statement from the same interview: "And, thanks to Valentino again, he and I developed the bike and all we need from now on is just a little bit of set-up and modification."
