zx6rfuzz 26....... What? WSB regularly exceed 310kph using steel brakes and they weigh more. Just because a MotoGP bike produces 250bhp does not mean that the rider cant use throttle control. The power delivery of the two stroke 500's was much more violent than the 1000's of today. Riders just had to learn to ride within the limitations of grip. You are really missing the point. Racing is not about being on full throttle all the time and letting the electronics sort out the problem

Jorge is just playing it smart. We all wish for real racing, but a few years from now everyone will just count the number of championships, not how they were won. Just look at Schwantz and Hayden, they won their titles because everyone else had problems. Even Ago had some easy titles, but no one mentions that any more.

@ All the idiots without brains calling Jorge a Chicken.
Jorge said in parc ferme he gave 100% to stay with Dani, to try win the race. But obviously he figured he didnt want to crash trying to stay with Dani.
Guys when there is a championship at stake, you don't do silly things, well some of you guys probably would actually. Jorge has a mature head on his shoulders, and I am sure he will win another race before the season ends. So stop trolling him

@Redda Bulla

Then how you explain Jorge's pole? and his confidence during interview?

Do you really think he is incapable of a fightback? don't be naive you idiot!

it's not an insult for Jorge but a deep critique for his own promise.

Yes sure he's smart and aiming WC, but fans deserve to moans a boring race. FACT

I didn't really watch much of the race but when I did I noticed that Rossi was on the harder rear tyre. Does anyone know why he decided to go with the harder tyre than the soft? It may explain why he was catching the riders in front during the last few laps.

Glad I decided to look here instead of getting up to watch the race. My suspicions were proved right looking at the results and times. Not really a race was it.
On the other hand, the final BSB round is on later. Now that's going to be good!
