Lorenzo is digging deep. Even deeper than last year. A true champion at a high level and still growing as a rider and as a human.

It's hard to believe he's the lowest paid of the 2 Yamaha factory riders.

good job , he did have an extra 200cc to play with over the 2011 record but still jlo is a true champ that hasn't really got any faults apart from wet weather fear.
i like him big time.

he's not the lowest paid FATE, Yamaha pay him more then his teammate, only fact that he earns more comes from all his endorsements, Even if his teammate wasent riding he would probably still be earning more then JLo.

yes i know that bothers you lol

Jorge can be a bit of a diva and go into major little boy strops if he is having problems! Look at when he had to go get his 2nd bike after coming off in practise, he used it but went back to his number 1 in qualifying, but had some problems with it. He nearly head butted one of his team when he barged past him in the garage he was in such a mood! Not good behaviour from a world champion or anybody for that matter so there is still a lot for Jorge to learn !

they all do that herewego , there's a lot at stake and little time to be prepared , don't matter if your world champ or a backmarker because this is racing and how they all go about it , too many people are easily shocked at the most ridiculous things that have always been a part of racing.

I think Westie doesn't fear bad weather! :-) Too bad he ain't that great in the dry!

Lorenzo is a guy who expects a lot from himself. He has so many ideals and rules and regulations that he puts on himself. It does make him a bit cranky in some situations, but I think it also gives him a lot of mental strength. A lot of self belief. No matter what the situation is he looks at it positively, even though he doesn't state it. He doesn't doubt even once in his mind that he can't achieve it. That is what makes him very very dangerous.
