What it says on the tin, I'd say mate.

Rather than go for a fast lap on stickys, put on race tyres and go for consistency over a race distance.
You probably learn more about the bike and tyres that way, makes sense.

This is where my money is going.Lorenzo is machine like in his lap consistancy and this is what wears people down.I think he has matured over the years into a truly great rider with a level head on his shoulders.He will be a tough nut to crack.

Great set of laps but it means not a lot really. In that set of laps he had nothing to think about but lapping fast. In a RACE he will have to get to the front first and then put in fast laps while thinking about other riders who will be snapping at his heels! I don't for one minute doubt his ability but to think that he is just going out to reel of fast laps and hey presto he has won is just wishful thinking on some peoples part.

Most people are overlooking the fact that jlo now has 5 years exp on the yamaha to rossis 7. But he holds the advantage due to staying on it for 5 years straight while rossi was not on it the last 2 years. This along with the fact that jlo is the most consistent rider on the grid, only finishing a race outside the top 4 on 1 occasion since the end of 2008 - 6th when he rejoined the field from last. in 2012, he didn't finish a race outside the top 2! There is no way rossi can deal with that sort of consistency nowadays. He might finish ahead of pedrosa in the end, but certainly not lorenzo.

@johnson
Not going to disagree with what you have said BUT for the last two years JLo has not had anybody to race for the better part. The fact is that neither Pedrosa or Stoner are racers they get to the front and try to head off is it does not work they go backwards. Rossi as has been shown and proved more tiimes than anybody cares to remember, just ask Stacey, is a RACER and will give even the fastest rider a tussle even if his ultimate race pace is slower!!
