MotoGP » 'You always learn' - Lorenzo looking inwards

"Last season Lorenzo was able to improve his style and now he rides half-and-half, between a pure 250cc style and the Honda acceleration 'trick' " - Valentino Rossi.

You can be shure about that m8.. all riders that are jumping to Motogp speaclly since 2007 that was where the electronics start to become allmost perfect even more clever, that the new riders that jump to Motogp is more a matter of learn the weight of the bike the tyres and all the phisick that they have to deal with one heavier bike because im terms of engine i mean trotthel control they dont have to worrie to much.. the bikes are very esay to explore the Power but offcorse to make a corner fast you need to be talente and to understand how the bike should worck but well talente we wach him every single class Moto3 Moto2 Etc.. Its fair to say that the new riders have better chances now to Win the first race of Motogp or te be fast since the beggining because of electronics that have been developed by the best riders all the telemetry worcking to correct the usual roockie mistakes.. Bikes are very inteligente now..

The trouble with todays Motogp machines is they make too much power!
They are shoving out approx 250bhp,and that simply has to be controlled to make them ridable.Can you imagine all that power in such a light weight bike with no elecrtonics?
You would have to station ambulance crews at every bend to catch the riders after their highsides!
They would be too dangerous to ride.Whether we like it or not,electronics are here to stay.

In my opinion that trick about acceleration that Rossi speaks about, its what is missing on his riding style to stay with Lorenzo and Pedrosa. Both are fast on corners exits, and those tenths Rossi is behind might be due to that.

Yes, i agree it has something to do with that also because he had some issues on 2nd test.
I talked in the acceleration because we could clearly see on the videos dorna posted onboard on Youtube of previous session, that he was the only one going slow out of corners. I know this was also because of ducati , but he been 2 years like that. He has to get more kilometres with M1.
As Marquez said we will see their levels in Austin, hope he cuts those tenths!
