MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 1st


Sete: I get a strange feeling Jorge is going to dominate next season, Just look at his performance at the end of the season. Big turnaround as soon as the seamless gearbox arrived, and a much more agressive rider. Saw him at Motegi and he walked away from the field. The hammer has already been dropped. Marquez capitalized on Dani and Jorge being injured for 4 races, he got lucky stealing the championship by just 4 points. If there had been one more race then Jorge would absolutely have had it.
It looked more to me that in the start of the season, MM rode to win every race and after the penalty points, he managed the gap to take the championship. I don't think one more race would have given JL any better position in the championship.

JL rode well at the end of the season only and was not the best by a long shot. His (and DP's) way of trying to "manage" the championship bit him on the behind and he started performing after his own comment that he was going to push as he had nothing to lose. MM was the standout rider of the season, riding fast from race one and changing tactics after penalty points could ha en changed the positions of the championship. If JL or DP start riding to win from race one, then it will be an interesting season.

MotoGP » Lorenzo wins Motegi, forces title showdown


I don't have a problem with JLo's personality, it isn't why he is there, he is there to race. To me, my issue with watching both JLo and Dani are that they are both too conservative, with the "podiums win championships" attitude that used to get them through a season. JLo has improved this year since he said "I have nothing to lose" and started pushing himself and his bike closer to the limit, a place where Marc seemed to be happy to ride since Race 1 in Qatar. Now, if Yamaha stop playing the head games, it might get back to being a good season in 2014.
