Therealdave.

jlo not popular with fans?? He has plenty of fans.
and out of everyone else on the grid hes the most likely to beat Marquez.
Rossi has early pace and drops off, pedrosa has late pace but its always too late.
Lorenzos problem was his start, he never usually is 6th into the first corner. If he had catapulted into his usual 1st or 2nd place he'd of had a chance as Marquez's fastest lap was only a single tenth faster than Lorenzos...

Brno is a good track for Jorge and the Yamaha maybe just maybe Brno could the the one.

It was tye right move for Jorge and Yamaha to continue on Jorge is top notch but Marquez is just a freak rider the only question is whem and where he will be beat I have the feeling that Marquez making a mistake on his own is how it will end.

He
will never beat MM. I still remember that Jlo was fastest rider but now
the time changed he don't even stand a chance against Allien boy and
thats the fact. I think he will have a fight with Vr in upcoming races.

Jorge needs a miracle, or at least a huge slice of luck. To finish the year above Rossi he'll have to win ALL the remaining races and hope that Rossi doesn't finish second, otherwise they would tie on points total. Obviously Dani and Marc are going to have a say in things.

The reality is that Jorge has to earn 5 or more points than Rossi in EVERY remaining race.

Even harder to catch Dani, of course.

If Marc thinks JL is getting too close he will just move the goal posts and drop his lap times quarter of a second Marc is just playing with them all he has plenty in reserve just look what he does in qualifying

beastinblack: too late too early too cold too hot too grippy too slippy....

*yawn*

Marquez just says every time he goes to race he feels so strong. Regardless of grip levels, weather, or temperature etc.



Slippy yes...Did you not see when he lost front end? Feet off the pegs yet he saved it and fought through and finished 2nd? A nice contrast in confidence to Assen.
Marquez says all that because he's yet to have an accident where he seriously gets hurt...Lorenzo, Rossi and Pedrosa have had theirs.

whats wrong with JL getting stronger? seems some vr and mm fans dont even wanna hear that! but you can see JL getteing stronger and faster and getting more confidence. jl is at least capable of repeating mugello at every track.! Rossi getting stronger and yamaha is getting stronger.!
it wont be easy beating mm because honda has a massivly good bike. that Dani cant perform on it its nothing new he never could use the full power and never been motogp champ! dani is no rider like mm/jl/vr so please leave dani out of the conversation if we talk about the honda! even NH could beat him! stoner in his first year mm in his first year. so that makes dani a regular rider.
