Its either less power so they can't fight with the Honda's to the end or blown engines and a repeat of 2006. No braking or transmission will solve that problem when they are already behind in the standings.

Lolz, Sorry Lorenzo, Bridgestone have more influence than your factory :) You and Yamaha have no chance, you are lucky that Marc is trying to make it look good for the fans cause he could have gaped you last race.

*unfortunately Lorenzo, you are not in control of your destiny, and thats the point isn't it :) Thats what its really all about :)

Nice post m8.. I guess is in perfect inglis for everybody read... Lets see what they will say now only to upset hower minds.. Maybe they will say Foruzawa was lieing and was uncle Carmelo that payd him to say

I won't disagree with Furusawa there, but I'll just make a slight change to the quote to put it in the true context.

"I have huge respect for him. He was the genius behind the bike.".

It's stunning how one word can make a big difference.

"Yamaha held the edge over honda for seven years with Rossi as lead rider, now in two years with Lorenzo as the lead rider they handed the dominance back to Honda...blah blah"

Or maybe because MM is a hell of a generational rider and Honda is the most prolific manufacturer in the gp that was due to bounce back sooner rather than later ???

What did I say already, yeah, empty arguments.

Let me translat what you think.. Well HE WAS THE GENIUS BEHIND THE BIKE..

So your are saying that was Rossi was the only responsable for the M1(was the genius behaind the bike) and thats why Yamaha SIGN in AGAIN.. Because he is the Genius that will fix Yamaha again Because since he leave Yamaha the bike is becoming SO ROSSI REMEMBER Foruzawa words and DECIDED to end is Carear ON YAMAKA=).. NOW M1 is Happy and FORUZAWA TO..

Rossi's style, hard braking for corner entry, hard acceleration out of the corner

Lorenzo's style softer on the brakes, highest mid corner speed and due to his high mid corner speed he isn't as aggressive as Rossi is on the throttle.

With knowing this info, who would suffer the most when riding the Yamaha?
My money is the guy who needs the brakes the most in this case Rossi. Give Rossi a bike he's comfortable with and he can ride how he wants it and you will see Rossi matching the same laptime compared to the frontrunners.
Rossi developed a bike which Lorenzo could win on, Lorenzo is developing a bike only Lorenzo can win on. I wonder how much already has been changed compared to Ben's bike.

Rossi didn't develop anything. Yamaha just doesn't Have a seamless gearbox to brake better and accelerate better, and hey can't compensate that with engine power because their reliability is worse than Honda's. All that crap about Rossi developing the bike this way, and Lorenzo that way is exactly that, crap talk. If Rossi was such a "god developer", the Ducati would be winning races by now, and not only that didn't happen, we now know that they should have listen to Hayden instead.

What's happening is Honda using their tech might to bounce back, as was due to happen sooner or later. And Yamaha, rightly so, listens most to their number one and faster rider, Lorenzo.
