a lot of you commenting mustn't take much notice these days.
jlo has a great personality , he has done actual dancing on stage and even sang at a press conference , may not of been great singing and dancing but he still did it when he was asked to .
on top of that with his polite honesty makes him a genuine likeable bloke in my book anyway.
he's a fine young man.

A Rossi wannabe? Perhaps once yes but that was years ago, he's grown up a lot since then. There's only one clown in MotoGP, he should have realised that straight away.
However, his spontaneous jump in the lake trumped anything that VR did,IMO.

I think he's wearing the hat to hide his alopecia, lol. It's true what mike's friend says, in Spain most people dislike Lorenzo, and most people like Pedrosa and Bautista better. He's just not a very likeable personality, although personally I think in recent years he has grown up a bit and seems a little bit more mature and less arrogant, but maybe it is just the PR work around him, I don't know.

Well deserved George. They should call it Character of the Year,rather then personality. Crikey,the bloke welcomed 'Mr.Personality' back to YamahaGP for 2013/14 for the benefit of the sport and YamahaGP. That is a sign of Character. The complete racer and well deserved World Champ 2012.All the best for 2013.

I Gg Lorenzo because he is one guy with strong personalaty and is atitude on fans, rivals , media Etc has to be recognised.. Is a kid becoming a man and he is taking is responsability very well!! No doubt a Top rider, people know me very well for beeing a Rossi Fan but unlicke many people think that aim a fanatic for Rossi and will not respect others i say they are wrong.. Lorenzo never was one guy that i would say i will like this guy he was fast but was to much crasy for i consider a great rider, but he growup and even if on the age we dont notice to much, from is atituds we can see that he whant to be better person and i think he is taking the right setps.. Edwards is a very fan rider and 4sure he also could recive an honor for is love and dedication to Motorcycle Sport but i think that when we give an honor to a younger person is allways nice and offcorse the fact that he is 2012 World Champion also weights a lot.. Thumbs up for Lorenzo, i wish him luck for 2013 but i whant Rossi f

Considering the lifestyle he lives, and his success as a rider, the guy could be a lot more arrogant... just sayin'. I'm not a huge fan but I do respect the guy and truth be told, he's not all that cocky. I think the award title is a bit misleading.

I suggest you Rossi fans keep your opinions to yourselves, or the organisers may be tempted to introduce a new category of Sports Failure of the Year. No doubt who would get that.

i dunno what is your idea of failure but let me tell mine, let me star from uppss who elso could we Star Casey Stoner, riding one HRC bike, the bike that won the manufacter title, fail to put is number 1 for one more year, this is biggest failure because we know why, for Casey fans the Mr is a GOD no one can beat him but i think Lorenzo and Pedrosa prove very well that Casey can loss, Failure number 2 is for Ben Spies that is riding one Yamaha M1 that give the title to is Team m8 but for Mr Spies give him one 10 place on the standings thats very good=), Failure number 3 this one is very good also the lad manage to make great races this year after is record of crashes last year Mr. Cal CRUTCHLOW riding for the 2 year for the well know Tech 3 yamaha manage to loss all is good campaing on the final of the year finishing 7 place on the standings wille is Team m8 riding for the 1 year one Yamaha manage to beat him finishing 4 on the standings Dovi very good.. Failure number 4 MR. Nick

Failure number 4 MR. Nicky Hayden wille everybody expect for him to prove that Rossi is Bad and old Etc Mr Hayden manage to loss on is so loved Ducati to one roockie this year after riding from what??3 years on Ducati he also manage to loss to is Team m8 that was clearly slow and unhappy riding this bike but Still Rossi with all this problems and also new experiences for him manage one 6 place even beeing slow riding this cheat GP12.. This is my Top list of Failures of 2012 and i dont inclued Karel Abrahan and Hector barbera..lolo People can complain about Rossi but people have to remember that what fail was the expectacions but at the end the fans know what fail on this reletion and the problem was Ducati..
