We all know Lorenzo and his quick and smooth riding style, no surprise here, what many want to know now is if the flamboyant Doctor still has it to entertain us at the top end... :).

Anyway, not to be off topic, Lorenzo confirms is amazing long run pace in this second testing session and the man to beat at part with Pedro.

Lorenzo doesn't need the consistent propping from the press and from a whole bunch of non race fans who say and believe Rossi is Motogp.

Money talks and bullsht walks. Let's see by the end of 2013 how much malarkey will be coming out of their mouths when Rossi is forced to retire by the Spaniard Club Sandwich. And pray Stoner doesn't come back.

@ deaf ears

While you are a "true fan", right?

Hoping to see one of the most successful and entertaining racer ever to retire and leave the show..

Yep, that's definitely the hallmark of a "True, unbiased fan"..

Lorenzo still prepared to put in a full simulation even in far from perfect conditions.The guy works hard and its his hard work that paid off last year.I still have him down as the man to beat this season.

There is little between them to be honest.Pedro is always fast and Marquez has impressed me greatly with his ability to adapt to a new bike.But i think Lorenzos consistancy is what may well grind them down.
The one to watch however is Rossi.Its taking him a tad longer than expected to get back to grips with the Yamaha.But its only a matter of time till he does.Then,who knows what will happen.
Its not going to be an easy title defence for Lorenzo.

But i still have a tenner on him to win!

Pretty solid assessment, although I think it's a matter of fine-tuning for Rossi than coming to grips with it. The fact that he's circulating within the top 4 (...3rd here, 4th there....only a half second off, etc.) demonstrates to me that he and the bike are fine, it's finding that last 5% (arguably the 5% that will give him the ability to fight for #1 spot in the WC) that he's working with. The bike gremlins didn't help him any though. Electrical issues, riding the 2012 bike, brake issues, etc. just caused a hindrance. Alas, this is what practice is for though. Make your mistakes in set-up here, not during the season (..cough, Ducati, cough).
