Absolutly stupid race from Lorenzo, he didn't try to catch Dani. Race direction should impose fine on Lorenzo for simulation because as rightly Dani said no one else could be second apaert from Lorenzo. This is frustraiting. Honda need to put Rea and Haslam on factory bikes to make Yamaha star work.

People, the Racer who 'deserves' the championship is the one with most points.
It's simple.
The most important stat in Racing is the Racer and Bike that wins the Championship.
The Manufacturer's title is just a minor peripheral detail.

So let's be clear, Jorge is doing exactly what is required by managing his point accumulation so that he wins the championship.
Why risk crashing by trying to rein Dani in on the difficult part of the track only to see Dani pull away on the easy straights?

Jorge's job is to win the Championship. At this point in the season, a mature Racer will know when to back off and collect points.

People are just mad at me because I speak the truth. Lorenzo loses all of his on track battles. Back in Brno before the terrible events at Misano, Lorenzo the herbivore got preyed upon by the smarter and faster predator known as 'Pedrosa'

Laughing at the toolboxes posting here, really hard.

Complaining again ? You guys should know you are VERY lucky that Lorenzo's not riding for Honda-Repsol yet, because that would've been a landslide.

Some people don't like J-Lo ? Fair enough, that's understandable. But Lorenzo is still a great, fast, and damn smart rider.

Now, deal the **** with it, like grown-ups.

An oversimplified and baseless view. On the Honda he would have to deal with an aggressive engine and a bike that has to be man handled, not to mention the chatter. Lorenzo can only ride smooth arcs into corners, with the Honda you have to assert your authority on it.

The Yamaha is like a giant 250, the Honda is a different beast.
