"Aggressive" ? Maybe in the terms of the very, very top riders. But remember they can feel the difference that 1/4 of an inch wheelbase makes, or 2 clicks on a damper. So when JLo says "agressive" he is commenting on an infinitessimal element that mere mortals wouldn't even notice.

"We cannot control the performance of the other riders ...."

YES, in fact you CAN. by moaning about them being faster than you are and giving the riders who are faster than you a BAD JOKE.

i start to lose respect for you.

It's no big deal, no need to take it out of context. When he says 'aggressive' he could mean lacking stability mid corner, perhaps their traction control systems aren't dialled in properly, wheeling too much, leaning too quickly or throttle response is too abrupt needing something new with engine mapping. This year he's had problems before a few races and generally come good, no need for it to be different this time.
