MotoGP » Lorenzo: It's impossible to be competitive


Codger, I agree that the tyres are having an unexpected effect on the racing,and in my opinion its not for the better. I have always said that i hate the control tyre/single manufacturer rule. Motorcycle teams should be allowed to use a tyre that suits their bikes and riders needs, NOT have tyres forced on them that can upset the entire handling of the bike. Bring back the other tyre manufacturers i say.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: It's impossible to be competitive


Codger,i was pointing out that Herewego insinuated that Jorge was only winning races on the Yamaha because it was a good bike that was capable of winning races,yet Val was consistently beaten by Jorge whilst on the same bike.Spmetimes by as much as 16 seconds. Yet i dont recall Herewego telling Val to "man up". He is one of those annoying fans who claims that when Val is doing well,it is down to skill,racecraft,cunning and determination.yet when another rider gets the better of him it is only because they are on a better bike! I think that the reason Val came in for stick last year is because his fans made huge claims that he was going to give everyone an ar*e kicking when he climbed on board "his" Yamaha. But it didnt happen did it. Perhaps people should stop making these big predictions because they are setting themselves up for a fall when things go wrong. Lets just sit back and see how things pan out when the races start.

MotoGP » 'Happy' Marquez breaks Stoner's Sepang record


This is not to take anything away from Stoner, he won in 2011 very well against a strong Lorenzo, but as said, his teammate spend 3 races on a forced vacation. Kenlucky. Funny how you conveniently forget that Casey also missed 3 races through injury in 2012. As for only winning because Dani developed the bike,i have argued on another thread that if Dani had perfected the bike,how come he hasnt won the title on it in 8 years? And how come his last 2 team mates turned up and won the title on it at their first attempt? Its like the guys who claim Casey only won in 2007 because of the bike Loris Capirossi developed. Yet on an identical bike that year he finished 200 points behind Casey! Go figure.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Fast lap wasn't our priority


Kenlucky. I am not talking about a single season. I am talking about the 8 years Dani has been on a full factory Honda without winning a single championship. Cokerel. That is pure conjecture. The fact is Jorge DID win more races than anyone else,which showed that he was prepared to up his game to meet the challenge that Marc represented. If we are going down the conjecture route,it could easily be argued that if Jorge hadnt injured his shoulder,he would have retained his title. But he did injure his shoulder and he didnt retain his title! Water under the bridge.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Fast lap wasn't our priority


If Dani had perfected the Honda to its very best,how come he couldnt win on it himself? As for Jorge not winning another title,i think you are hoping he wont! He has more than enough talent and time to accomplish another title win. Marc is the favourite in most books to retain his title this year,but as we have seen in the past,it only takes a single injury to ruin those plans. Anyone who thinks Jorge isnt in the running for the title this year is living in cloud cuckoo land.
