I developed some serious respect for this guy in the last two years or so. He's very strong mentally and i think it's his best quality, but i'm pretty sure he would be very strong no matter what he do for living. Everyone can learn a lot from this young man.

i love this site. some posters are like little girls arguing that justin bieber has better hair than the guy off one direction. jesus h christ, it was a reasonable informative article about lap by lap consistency, and the comments degenerate into utter garbage. just waiting for the 'if stoner was there he would be the best!! omg lol wtf' etc. get a grip.

Last year in the first half of the season the Yamaha definitely had the edge but by the second half of the season Honda got the tyre issues sorted and inched it over the Yamaha. This season the Honda still has it so it is just as well that Stoner is not around or it would have been a one horse race. As it is with the 5 top riders being so close it should make for good exciting racing this year.

Last year Jorge on his Yamaha secured the championship in the first half of the season as long as he finished 2nd or 3rd in every race. Even though he was an engine down this was fairly easy for him to achieve, especially with Stoner hurt.

Would Dani have won races, sure thing. Would he have won as many if Jorge needed to, well he never did in any season before...

Jambop, I agree rossi is more of a "racer". But will he have it in him week in and week out to bring it to jlo? He has definitely done it before no arguements there but has he done it consistently?.. I think the question is not whether rossi is capable of beating lorenzo in a tight battle, but how often can he do it? Right now lorenzo has what it takes to finish 1st or 2nd every week. I'm just not sure rossi does when you also factor in marquez and pedrosa. He will have some wins for sure, but to win the title, as lorenzo has shown, consistency is the ultimate factor. Woudln't you agree?

I really think it depends a lot on how close the top four are in the opening ten or so laps of each race. If they stay close then I really do see an opportunity for Rossi to win races he defo knows how to do it. I honestly think that pedrosa and Marquez will be very significant throughout the season the Honda is a very good bike as shown by Pedrosa last year, you could actually say that with a little bit of luck he could have been the champion. It took a number of races to get the bike working and he ended up chasing it because of getting taken out. It will be very interesting lets say that much!

jambop and johson, interesting back and forth.

Sometimes it can happen also on to read some interesting conversation (and since not many are into serious talk on the yellow community, here I am... :D ).

I would have no doubt Rossi could bring the fight into close quarters to Lorenzo week in week out and eventually clinch the title thanks to superior fighting skills / racecraft..... in his YOUNGER YEARS.

If he can do it TODAY... That's the question for me. Honestly, I'm afraid that at 34 it's a little bit of an uphill battle...

Lorenzo's method is different to Pedrosa, that is all there is to it. Lorenzo just do the race simulation for more than 10 laps like some races last year but pedrosa just make atleast 3 to 4 consistent laps and that it, he already knows that he can do that lap times consistently and not do a 10 to 15 laps race simulation. Pedrosa may not have that "fearsome" pace in practice but he did win 7 GP's last year.
