I love some of the comments on these forums...especially how people turn every thread into Rossi propaganda.

If you are going to liken that move on Lorenzo by Rossi as proof nothing is impossible please tell me why Rossi is "choosing" not to win let alone get on the podium?

Please accept that Rossi and the Ducati are not gelling. Though if he doesn't beat Lorenzo on equal machinery it will be interesting....

Back onto topic - Lorenzo did what he had to do and rode at his limit. Yesterday Pedrosa & the Honda were the better package. Credit to both

nothing is impossible,
look at Catalunya 09 JLo,
after turn 9 it was all but impossible, noone has ever passed at turn 13, even you said "you cant pass there its impossible"

Rossi showed you the impossible is never impossible....posted by lol 27.

Please go to vimeo.com, type in valentino rossi catalunya and watch the last two laps in glourious HD with comments from fellow gp riders and pit crews.

Seperated.
I'd argue that the Honda 'Uncompetitive' years where down to Pedrosa as much as anything else, Honda know how to make a winning motogp bike, I think at the time Dani just wasn't riding like he is now. (IMO of course) He joined in the year that Hayden won the championship on the bike so the bike was definitely good that year, and his start was nowhere near as sensational as Lorenzos was.

Hahahahaha @ Hahahahaha

Honda's upturn in 2010 was because they poached a few key people from Yamaha. Pedrosa has always had the speed, just not the bike, until the people who were with Yamaha sorted the electronics. What position are you in to say that Pedrosa wasn't even trying before?


@ Andrea

Clearly my opinion isn't welcome, why else would people be mad?

Luck always plays a part. Not sure what the controversy is. Lorenzo and Yamaha do not need to push for wins, but Dani sure does. Unless someone can get between them, and only Stoner can do that, or something bad happens to Lorenzo, then the championship is effectively over. Anything can happen but Dani needs a lot of luck to pull this off.

Always baffled that people here think the number of world championships translates into who is the best. Certainly it is a measure of that, but you could be the fastest rider ever and not have the most world championships, or even one, that takes consistency, not just outright speed.

sorry Pam, you are so wrong, the guy with the best bike/tire combination always wins, except some times Casey breaks that rule.

Jorge has been on the best bike since 2008-2010, Dani was injured most of last year and injured the second half of 2010, what you are seeing now is how Dani would have been all of last year and the end of 2010, the Honda is the best bike on the grid, only the tires are keeping it back, and next year when the freak show that is marc marquez shows up, Honda will get those tires, and Marc will get priority and stomp on Lorenzo like a wet rag.

Its a rigged game, and i feel like only slaves really think its anything but. I feel so sorry for you poor b@stards. You guys really believe what the tv tells you.

07 ducati & bridgestone was a continuation of the rule and so was the 11 honda & bridgestone.

We all feel sorry for you that you cannot rationally sense check your thoughts before posting.
