Jorge and his crew chief have both said, separately, and before the race, that the Yamaha has to be ridden smoothly and maintain a high corner speed to actually be competitive. Lorenzo put it on pole and he knew whatever he did, he had to get through the first corner, in the lead , and then create a gap while on fresh tyres. To his credit he did just that and won the race. Rossi didn't have that luxury. Instead he used his own strength ie. braking skills. How he could do that to such devastating effect on Quatars' dusty track is amazing. All 4 Yam riders will need to go for it from the start in Austin to have any chance against Dani & Marc.
