MotoGP » Lorenzo pips Spies at Aragon MotoGP test


@rc46er...you'r right. I had high hopes for him and obviously Yamaha did as well. But he has performed very poorly this season and it's puzzling and disappointing. He says on his web site that he is building confidence. Pardon me but when a rider is elevated to a factory ride, confidence would seem to be assumed. Was he never really tested in tricky dangerous conditions? To some extent maybe. When he was on pole at Indy with Tech 3 that was a stellar performance but the track however slippery was dry. I fear if Silverstone lives up to he rep he will suffer another setback. It's because he raised such high expectations for fellow Americans that his performance on the 1000cc bikes is such a let down.

It's not so much as confidence as the willingness to risk his neck at the limit. Why does he always wobble around mid-pack in FP instead of being at the front where all the other factory riders are (can't count ducati--that's a special case. Ducati was lucky it had a rider like Casey who was tough enough to go to the limit KNOWING he would crash). as I said, Ben's soft.

@Pam...yeah he seems to be somewhat soft maybe spoiled. His mama seems to be ever present but that's not unusual: John Surtees also had a mother that drove him to all the race meets in the UK when he was learning his craft. I noticed Bradl's mother was with him at the Leguna track day. She wasn't identified in Soups pic but boy he really looked like a chip off the block. But Ben is not tough like Casey and JLo for sure and it may be too late to reverse that.
