oh and to the people who say that jlo developed the bike to his style, whats wrong with that? Its not as if he knew rossi would come crawling back from ducati after 2 years.. should he have developed it for rossi instead? ask yourselves this, would the bike be all that different had rossi not left???

@crystal ball 99 you are being too defensive trying to protect JL... Accept the fact that development under JL is not upto the mark against honda. If he had developed M1 so well why did two Honda comfortably defeat yamaha in two consecutive races... Two hondas owned yamaha in what was claimed to be yamaha's circuit... Of course in jerez marc came second only in last corner, because JL was too good in holding him behind,, if not that great riding from JL, marc would have ran away in front with Dani because he had that pace but JL was awesome with his race lines...

I am not blaming JL'S riding potential but his development strategies... Those were days when yamaha was the lacing only top speed, but today it is only good in corner speed...

I wish let yamaha don't get exposed by Honda...
Two great riders on seconds best bike in the grid... That's team yamaha now...

Yes, it's not fair... the Honda has an unfair advantage. Yamaha needs to fix the's the bike, it's the bike...

Whoops. Still, let's not let the facts get in the way of discussion.
So, "Bike developed by Lorenzo, wrong direction" etc. Apart from the mere fact that riders only give feedback to developers, the bike was the fastest bike on the track. Myth busted.

Rossi is talking about his own performance more than anything else. He's riding faster now than he's ever ridden. It's just that the other guys are faster than him. But blame the bike. It's more entertaining.

Rossi is no miracle anymore, in my opinion some of the problems are in his own team. Burgess is too old for the job and less sensitive than before.

They have trouble just to make the bike "work" while Lorenzo and his team always find a good setup everytime.

At least that's what I've seen so far.

JL has destroyed VRs M1 in 2 yrs making it almost unrideable, same like CS did to the Ducati. Rossi needs to design his own bike then he can win 9 more WC. If not he should go fishing.

Why the surprise? Jorge has been appealing to Yamaha to give him more straight line speed for 2 years now. Remember when Spies lost a win when Stoner out drafted him to the line? Remember his comment when asked why he didn't win? He said " I wasn't riding a Honda "
The Honda gets out of the corners better, so gets down the straight better, and now has the required braking stability. No more 'Yamaha' tracks.
Lorenzo's 'Scalextric' racing lines are now compromised, he is going to have a tough year unless the Honda boys rob each other of points like they did last year.

Pretty impressive I think...and just goes to show that outright speed doesnt make a race winner and hence, winning any particular race doesnt make a WC...

So just imagine the consistently high level of performance required to win 9 of them...

they blame the bike isnt the same as 2010 ,jb too old and less sensitive,jlo made M1 almost unrideable, soon they will blame the marshals, the weather, the umbrella girl, the commentator, the blue flag, etc, hohohohooo...
the fans moaning before their hero,eh?
