MotoGP » Official: Jorge Lorenzo joins Ducati


To my mind there are massive question marks over two of JL titles. 2010 not only did Rossi break his leg and was out for 4 races effectively ending his WC, but the other 3 aliens at the time Dani and Stoner were also out for multiple races which is why JL amassed the highest points title at that point. People seem to think this is his great racing but it was simply the other weren't there. And then we have 2015, sorry Jorge's efforts at race direction, cas etc and that last race make his 2015 title a farce, especially Valencia and PI, even with assistance it still came down to the last race and 5 points. And we have what MM does when he has a full shot at the title overtakes all the time...

MotoGP » Yamaha: Each day reduces chance of Lorenzo staying


Paisan, I agree with that appraisal JL was like a bear with a sore head until Vale showed that MM wasn't invincible. He then paid for this by colluding with their direct competitor. Also I think the concept of honour is more deeply embeded in Yam than Honda who simply will win at all costs. Like when they poached almost all of Yams ECU programming team. Yes you can do it but is that the way you want to win. Yes you can collude and come first but doesn't it feel like a hollow victory. I am so hoping JL goes to Ducati as while it has horsepower it will be interesting as I think he relies on handling more than most and while much improved if not for the horsepower I think they would not be as far up as they are.

MotoGP » Imperious Marquez reigns - Rossi, Dovi misery


I think it clear from VR response that the burnt clutch basically destroyed his acceleration hence coming out of turns he was getting blasted. What I am saying is that prior to essentially going backwards against the other 4 rides he was right on MM tail and so successfully kept or improved his position. Had he not burnt the clutch I think as he also says he was strong and vastly improved at this track and could have made for a brilliant race. I think he felt the need to make up places and overcooked the front trying to regain places. Which is a sign that there was a fair amount of pressure in play. Should have taken a leaf out of his own playbook and simply settled for a while until things came good as he did at Argentina and he would have an almost identical result as the front 3 and 4 took each other out. Which don't get me wrong is highly unfortunate, poor bastd Dovi.

Well well well. Jorge to Ducati. This is a good thing all round. However, Jorge went for the money as he deems money as a measure of his stature. He was probably offered similar money to VR who he considers inferior. It is a pity the Ducati is such a weapon compared to the one VR enjoyed as I think he has a shot of winning races, having said that I think JL will experience a similar outcome to that at Yam when Rossi left where development does not progress (and sorry but well articulated ride feedback based on strong experience and a good understanding of bike behaviour invariably improves bike design). Equally JL needs a scalpel which the Duc is probably not even now. I wonder what will happen to Dovi/Iannone? Will they run 3 bikes?

I am just glad to get to the bottom of why VR went backwards down the straight. It sucks but that is racing. It is a pity because in warmup he looked like he could challenge MM for the win but alas I think just as he has improved his qualifying he is also overcompensating on the start as he did at the last round with the fishtail. I think it slightly premature to say he is out of contention as while Jorge has looked good in some races I think VR has looked like he can stay with MM like in Argentina, until the bike change. Equally two of the top 4 have fallen so who is to say that MM won't do the same. What needs to occur is to place him under consistent pressure as we have seen what happens to MM when that occurs a la 2015.
