MotoGP » Lorenzo: I was better than Rossi in everything

Yes, Jorge is the fastest. Can't argue with the stats. But he's also quite fragile and prone to crises of confidence if things don't go his way. That doesn't necessarily equal a world title. Fortunately for him, things went his way this time (it didn't rain too much). I do wonder sometimes though if he might not be slightly on the autistic side. A prodigious talent on a motorcycle but seems completely unable to engage with people in a normal and natural way (i.e. without sounding rampantly narcissistic or egotistical). He certainly does live in Lorenzo's Land.

MotoGP » Jorge Lorenzo is 2015 MotoGP champion!

Brilliant ride from JL, can't take anything away from that. And his speed and race wins this year make him deserving of the title. But for me, he could have acted with a little more restraint and dignity during the recent controversy and just tried to win it on track instead of getting involved. I think that might have made him a more popular champ rather than just a hugely talented one.

MotoGP » Rossi blasts Marquez after MotoGP title defeat

I never really understood what Rossi hoped to gain by 'exposing' Marquez. It really hasn't helped him in any way, and all he's doing with each new accusation is making a lifelong enemy of Marquez, who is younger, faster and will be in the sport for many more years to come. It wouldn't surprise me if MM had resolved after all this to try and make sure Rossi never wins another race or title again. He's certainly not going to roll over like Sete did, that's for sure.

MotoGP » Lorenzo 'sorry' for Rossi rostrum gesture

Rossi may have let his temper get the better of him in the heat of the moment and made a silly mistake, but Jorge has made several errors of judgement in his response to the situation, even when he has had time to consider his actions. Consequently, he'll always be viewed as a rider that tried to politically maneuver the championship his way, even if that wasn't his intention. That's a stain that won't easily be removed, apology or not.

MotoGP » Italian TV ambush Marquez at home

cokerel: Don-R: It's not real life for you or anyone around you.
If I go to a racetrack and I'm surrounded by fans who are hurling abuse at a rider on the podium, or chanting for a rider to crash and hurt himself (and I've heard both at MotoGP circuits) then of course it becomes a real life experience. It's an unpleasantness that taints the enjoyment of the event. And it represents a real ugliness and extremeness that has crept into fan support over recent years.

MotoGP » Italian TV ambush Marquez at home

@ RealRacingCampaign "Rossi has form for standing by while his fans behave atrociously, when a few words from him would put a stop to it." In fairness, I don't think anything that Rossi said or wrote would have changed what these characters did, since their main intent was obviously to exploit the situation as a means of publicity for themselves and their trash-tv show. Oh and if they had bothered to notice on TV how excitable Marquez's father tends to get, they really ought to have known what they were in for.
