Imagine this: Lorenzo is not good at race launching. Pedrosa will take holeshot, followed by MM, followed by Lorenzo. However, MM will go in too hot and take Pedrosa down. Lorenzo shall win. MM will start next race from pitlane.... Just kidding!

Prediction: Bradley Smith gets another incredible start and is in-front of Nicky Hayden and Crutchlow before turn 2.

Oh and Marquez wins by a country mile and jorge lorenzo finishes 2nd, DP26 complains about lack of grip/arm pump and finishes top 4.

here you can see who is the actual MotoGP- master.

1) basically an inferior bike
2) home track of the best bike's manufacturer.
3) put it on a good margin.

Lorenzo's talent outweighs his ambition and he still can do this without even once having put a foot wrong...MM outbraked himself again a few times...

i think the rear wheel bouncing is proof that MM relies heavily on electronics. on a dry surface under heavy braking the rear wheel lifts and the front wheel grips. on the wet, the rear wheel lifts but when the electronic detects the front wheel slipping due to the wet track, ABS kicks in pumping the brake several times. i think thats the ABS working heavily when you see the rear wheel bouncing under heavy braking on the wet.

From the regulations
"6) Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) are not permitted. Braking inputs must be powered and controlled solely by the rider's manual inputs. Conventional hydraulic hand/foot controls such as master/slave cylinders for brake systems are allowed (refer also to Art. Control Systems) but no increase or control of brake pressure by electronic or mechanical systems apart from the rider's direct manual inputs are allowed. Specifically, brake systems designed to prevent the wheel from locking when the rider applies the brake are forbidden."

Ive bounced rear wheels like pogo sticks on old telescopic fork type of machinery, and they didnt have ABS. Its just sheer last minute braking and using none to minimal rear brake. Perhaps MM cant back it in during wet weather so it bounces more.
