MotoGP » Jorge Lorenzo: 'It happens'


ProfessorX: lolz, ever the villain, he doesn't even have to try, the fans follow the lead of the commentators. Funny how things really are. Forza Jorge, a shame about what GPs has turned in to, I hear the fishing is pretty good near about Australia :) Perhaps a run in WSBK? A world championship for a Spaniard in BSB has to be worth about 2 or 3 GP world titles :) Maybe he and Max can hook it up with Aprilia. Maybe Yamaha has the balls to drop a couple bikes in WSBK, that would probably be the best bet. Max Biaggi and Jorge Lorenzo, who would have thought, both careers running so close in parallel. Checks WSBK Lorenzo, GPs are dead, and loooong gone. Some guys just are not cut out for the clown act.
Obviously you didn´t follow JL in 250cc... He was the "bad boy" of 250cc. Obviously you missed JL block Dovi (when he was with RepsolHonda) down the main straight at Qatar. Not very sporting wouldn't you say? Dovi had to back off or be forced into the mid straight barrier. That was one of the most un-sporting acts I have witnessed in motogp. Did Rossi do that to Casey in 2007? No. Rossi was straight as an arrow down the straight when Stoner blasted past him with Ducati power. With JL´s whinging it is a case of "the pot calling the kettle black". The "King of motogp" is no longer. He is becoming the bad boy of motogp and that achievement has been earn´t unlike the self crowned "king of the hill" bs. Rossi has taken criticism like a man in the past and his ego permits admissions of mistakes. Morning setting didn't work for the (afternoon) race..... hmmm I think JL will bounce back if he can chill out a bit. But his massive ego has taken a almost mortal hit, especially after that abysmal start. The mending process will take time. motogp is not the complete package without the handbags flying around.... Personally I hope JL stays in the freezer and we see more brain explosions. Great to watch. Sete´s downfall was juicy, as was Stoner´s dummy spit exit from motogp and with a bit of luck JL will follow the same path. Handbags ready ????!!!! :-)

I find comments like these amusing. Do you actually think large companies such as Michellin and others care about nationalism? And if so does the location of the headquarters a company has any effect on a rider's performance? Do yourself a favor and don't post comments like these, they make you sound.... less intelligent.
You find comments like these amusing, do you? Well you're easily amused then. Do YOURSELF a favour, and get a life. And the correct grammar is "have" any affect. Learn to read you *****
Nationalism is one of and probably the pre-requisite driving force behind Repsol´s selection of Honda Riders for it´s flagship motorbike team. Bradley Smith is another example of nationalism selecting a rider. Dorna is very mindful of making motogp appear to be a global sport and selecting riders from as many different nationalities is one goal. Before I recieve a smart arse reply to the effect that Tech3 didn´t hire De Puniet bear in mind that as with Honda it is the relationship the rider has with sponsors that matters the most. Certainly the nationality of the team and where it is based also matters to but that takes a back seat to the rider/sponsor connection. That one backfired a little didn´t it... lol

MotoGP » Michelin named new MotoGP Tyre Supplier


Yearby23: Will Rossi, a Bridgestone ambassador jump ship over to Michelin for the final few years of his career? Even though he jumped from them to Bridgestone in 2008. Think we will see a broader quality of tyres in terms of suitability across the paddock. Lap records might not be broken instantly but I think racing will be closer and hopefully Honda are crying right now.
"jumping ship" in the context of your statement is completely wrong. Rossi and Yamaha changed to Bridgestones after the completion of the 2007 season. Obviously Yamaha, not Rossi, terminated their contract with Michelin or took advantage of an escape clause in the said contract. For me at any rate motogp is a sport and a business. Jumping ship implies a breach of contract which is something that carries with it penalties. If any manufacturer is to blame for breaching contract it is Honda in 2008 when Pedrosa´s Honda/Repsol team changed mid-season over to Bridestones. Interesting to note that Honda knew about the Bridgestones from the data that Nakano´s (Honda engined) team gave them. Even more interesting is a video which disappeared not long after it was inserted into motogp.com in which Nakano said that if his team gives Bridgestone data to Pedrosa´s team he (Nakano) would like full HRC backing in return. Nakano performed very well for the rest of the season with full factory support... No way Honda is crying. Of all the manufacturers they are the best equipped to handle changes. Why? they have the most resources to deal with new rules, tyres etc. IN the future Ducati and Yamaha may jump ahead in terms of speed around the track but when the people responsible end their contracts Honda steps in the buy them. Quite rightly too. They are Consistantly the best manufacturer and offer the biggest contracts. If I was a ECU programmer I would want to have HondaHRC in my CV. Wouldn't you? That´s prestige that is second to none in the motorbike racing world.

mrfill: Immediately before Marquez arrived the team consisted of DP + an Australian and an Italian. Before them there was an Italian ( a different one) and an American. In fact since 1995 Repsol Honda have had 16 riders of which only 3 have been Spanish. (5 Japanese, 3 Italians, 2 Aussies, 1 American, 1 French). I don't see any 'Repsol effect'.
If there were any good Spanish riders then Repsol would have taken them. Truth is there hasn't been much Spanish talent in between Criville and Pedrosa.

Rockstar84: I agree with the posters who say testing for the new season's tyre should be way before the pre-season tests, because that will only cause confusion for riders. And, no reason to fix something which is not broken, I understand Bridgestone wanted to provide a tyre which provides a balance of all sorts, but they should've introduced it earlier, not so late. Some lessons to be learnt, but I believe it will be a mountain to climb to meet the benchmark Bridgestone has set!
Corporations which have a monopoly don´t tend to increase quality as much compared to a situation where there is more than one "fox in the hen house". Quality tends to become the second priority on more than one occasion with monopolies and the "bottom line" corporate types win out all to often with cost cutting techniques. I think it was a good thing that Bridgestone left. Why this happened is still a matter for discussion. Maybe Bridgestone felt that any more involvement was unnecessary for whatever reason, maybe Dorna and/or the manufacturers and/or the sponsors felt it had to be done. Those who know their history would certainly agree that the advances in technology during the Second World War were incredible. Would we have had atomic bombs and jet planes in 1945 if there was no WW2. No way. So now the pressure is on Michelin to deliver the goods. Not as much pressure as a two tyre contest but hopefully the teams etc can keep all the ships sailing in the same direction. Note the word "hopefully" above.... Hope for the best, plan for the worst. That´s my motto.

nikisan: This is like Rossi-Gibernau all over again.
Not exactly. Marquez joioned in too. :-) I remember JL criticising other people pretty regularly in the past. As the saying goes what goes around comes around. Furthermore statements to the effect that he want´s to stay at Yamaha with love and kisses sounds ominously like he is ready to go elsewhere if he needs to. Fair enough to. For the riders it is a business which lines the pockets of the top riders with millions.
Huh, I meant Marquez-Lorenzo is like Rossi-Gibernau
I am fully aware of what you meant... O M G
