MotoGP » Rossi: Marc’s wins the rider, mine the Honda...


Bloody hell....what have I started. No I am not blind. My original post was to point out that to compare Lozzer and Rossi is not possible, NOT that one was a better rider than the other. Bringing in Doohan is irrelevant. Bringing in Stoner is irrelevant too. The comparison is between VR and JL. Why suggest that Jorge was better than Rossi when the Italian suffered a broken leg ? (I'm not saying he wasn't better, just that it is not a true comparison.) grantrd.......Rossi left Yamaha because, despite what he had done for them, they wanted to cut his wages to give Jorge more money. It was a principle thing, nothing to do with Lorenzo, and I'm sure you would have done similar in your line of work. I agree on Eddie though.

SkyWilk......I do want to go down that route. You can't compare. Rossi's stats are ruined by his 2 year stint on the Ducati, while Lozzer enjoyed 2 years on the sweet handling Yamaha. If it had happened the other way round then it's a whole different story. The 2012 Title would have gone to Rossi. ( I doubt that the 2011 one would. :) ) " He isnt faster or better than JLO, he never was.................." He was in 08 and 09, wasn't he ? So far this year too. ps.....Why did you bring Stoner into it ?

It was JBurgess who said the 80% 20% thing, not Rossi. At the time jerry was right, not so much now with how the bikes have evolved. Rossi left Honda because they never give their riders any credit, it was always the bike. Admittedly the 5cyl bike was something special as Rossi said it was like cheating. Others could win on it but no credit was given for the Italian winning the Championship on it. Stoner had exactly the same with Ducati not recognising his talents. They soon found out when Casey smashed them riding a Honda. Where are you guy's getting the information that Rossi is always boasting ?

MotoGP » Rossi, Lorenzo debut 2015 Yamaha


Can anyone enlighten me on why Jorge no longer suffers from the bad tyre syndrome, please. What has changed ? Can anyone enlighten me on why the Italian riders (ie not Cal) no longer suffer from unrideable understeer ? They are pulling tighter lines than Honda & Yamaha lately. Baring in mind that last year the softer tyres were exacerbating the problem, what has changed ? Whatever the reasons it's got to be good news for future races.

I feel for guys like Randy Mamola and especially Dani Pedrosa. Capable of beating anyone on their day but the Title somehow eludes them. The 'legend' name will probably, in the future, be applied to Randy more than Dani because of Randy's outgoing persona. Somehow Dani gets overlooked. Check out the all time stats and you'll find that the little man has scored many more podiums than some multiple Title winners ( some with as many as 4! )
