JLO's fans are better at excuses than he is. Cal seem to have been in second place on the same bike. All it is is heart. He has no heart. Rossi is old and his mind isn't letting him hold that throttle open as long as it used to. If stoner was still there JLO would be in 4th place and sliding. 7th is not worth it, at that point it's ride hard or fall off. Just like Rossi did. JLO is finished!

Yes its because your rear tyre,but not because bridgestone tyre.
You can not use last year setup because the tyre has change, the bike weight has change,and your chasis has change.
Find the right setup.Do not complaint too much.

Clearly there was a problem with the tyres or the bike. Watcing Jorge one can see his bike was vibrating a lot. He was doing the best to calm it down. After having a great pre race, it must be a bummer to have such a s#**ty race. A race to forget.

Proves cal is'nt one lap wonder but he is dreaming when he says he could not catch pedrosa because dovi held him back. Love the staement where he says he knew dovi would CRACK under pressure theres somthing he dislikes of dovi.

@cmpunk: right mate. I was laughing when i read that 'catching up dani,dovi cracking under pressure comment'. Just when I start to consider Cal seriously I get to read such comments and back off. His mouth is a little too big than his achievements. He is a good rider. Bt it is different to be optimistic and different to be overconfident.

Yamaha had given him an oppurtunity of a lifetime to be in GP. Not many Wss champion get this route. I think he should be atleast considerate.

Yamaha develop the bike around JLo..he should know better the bike than Cal..but this result is obvious..I think Yamaha is going to the wrong direction..they need to find something or Honda boys will fly away..

I was a bit shocked to see Lorenzo struggling so much! This must be his worst result in years... I wonder if it is the new chassis he was trying. Rossi didn't seem to have the same trouble with the bike, he was using the old chassis. I am starting to think Yamaha have gone a step backwards with the bike this year. It may be true what some commentators are saying that last's year bike, Cal's bike, is actually better. Either way, it is becoming very clear Yamaha are in deep trouble this season. The fight for the championship may be between Pedrosa and Marquez!
