Horhey...get rid of the X, the dorky red leg missmatch leathers, with the red boot. Surely you can do something more unique that goes with your tremendous skills. be something normal bikers can relate to. and get back the killer instinct that goes for the win, not championship.

It's a difficult one. Lorenzo is super strong and in his prime but it does become boring when the race is over after first couple of laps when he clears off , but what can he do,he's there to win. It's not good for spectators though. Role on the next races. I'm praying for close,fairing bashing racing between them all at the front. And if its close like we hope for, we know who will come out on top. Vale. COME ON!!!!!

Play it safe, that is bla bla. I don't think he means it.

Rossi, Lorenzo, Marquez, once the red light goes off, they go for the best they can. It's in their blood. They like to race.

If he really means it, than the championship could be boring...

Although I like a lot Pedrosa, he indeed showed some weaknesses under pressure and maybe he doesn't have so much racecraft as the other 3.

To those stating the situation is as normal, with Jlo in control, just a few thoughts,

1. MM is there this year who wont simply avoid overtaking manouvers.

2. Rossi (like him or not) is back on a competitive package and will be there or abouts at more tracks than not.

Proof is in the pudding...everyone was stating on her pre-season that Jlo was 1st or 2nd every race he finished last year, well, only 3 races in and already he has not achieved that...

Before you all jump up and down, all I am saying is that you cannot simply assume that this year is going to be a copy of last year...it hasnt happened yet....

Jorge knows fine well that winning the title this year is going to be hard work, even harder than normal. Reason is, he not only has Valentino Rossi back like the proverbial thorn in his side, but he also has Marc Marquez to deal with - and he is a real unkown quantity for Jorge. It seems Jorge is going to try to settle for consistancy to increase his point score instead of going all out to win each race which could always end up in disaster and no points at all. I have always been sceptical of a world title winner who doesn't actually win the most races - Nicky Hayden was one of them - only won 1 race but added points through consistant finishes. To me, you are not the best if someone else has always beaten you more often that not!

Seems to me that Jorge is the thinking mans racer. He does what he needs to do when he needs to do it. He watched Valentino in his early days picked up the good bits, threw away the bad bits and honed his skills to the point where Valentino is the one now playing catch up.
My prediction, if he can avoid being barged off the track by Valentino then the championship is his. Hopefully with Cal in the mix!!
