Well thought. The power to weight ratio of the Honda is huge vs. the yamaha on the uphills.

You know how to pick your battles. You can't win them all.

Wise thinking by Lorenzo.He didnt need to win the race and certainly didnt need to bin it trying.Let the others push and possibly make the mistakes.He has a level and cool head on his shoulders.

Jlo has to still take one factor into consideration - Casey Stoner. The Honda is good right now and that man is more than capable of slotting between Ped and Jlo every race. 4 consecutive 1-2 Repsol finishes with Pedro winning - Dani will be WC. So there is a decent chance given that Honda maintains its level with the M1 - Pedro and Stoner have the capacity to take it past JlO every race. But the bigger questions is - will Stoner play shotgun for Pedro given his high moral ground specially at PI????

yes jorge was smart today and if he keep riding this way the title will sure be hi's.
But Yamaha needs to step up and has to come with something good next year because honda sure is better.
but if not for the 2013 hrc bikes jorge would sure won have more.
Go Jorge Go Yamaha

Sure, fair enough, however the show is the biggest victim.

I think that even if Jorge wanted to really give it a try, this was Pedro's to win.

Wish Stoner was still here to make it more interesting, it could have definitely been a 1-2 Honda and he would have taken several points away from Jorge in these last races.

@Abhishek too many flaws in that argument.

The biggest being the fact that Stoner isn't even sure he'll be fit for Motegi and has stated he's not sure he'll be fit enough to win by Philip Island. What makes you think he'll be in any position to beat Jorge four times?

Next up is that fact that even with Stoner there Lorenzo hasn't finished below second all season.

Then there's the rumours that Honda have been throwing everything at Dani since he overtook Casey in the standings. Even if that wasn't the case when Stoner was still with us it has almost certainly been the case while Casey has been away. No doubt Honda will still want to chuck everything at Dani even when Casey comes back. There's no no chance of Casey overhauling Dani so Dani will be their #1. Given how close Dani and Jorge have been over the last few weeks Stoner will be hard pressed to beat Jorge as Honda's #2 rider.
