MotoGP » Yamaha: Each day reduces chance of Lorenzo staying


juggaknot: Yep, and 2010 Rossi requested to keep it up so Jorge can develop on his own. Look it up man...Asphalt and Rubber has an article on this. Don't make me quote on here.
By then Lorenzo already had two years of his own data to work with, so that's besides the point. My comment still stands. Lorenzo inherited all of Rossi's data and a bike that he had fine tuned to get him up to speed. I don't have to look anything up as I'm already aware of that article (and I've been watching GP since 1994/1995).

MotoGP » Yamaha: Each day reduces chance of Lorenzo staying


Outinfront: Pretty simple - at those times it was Honda vs Yamaha only. Pedrosa was out for much of it and was going through surgery and strugling with arm pump issues etc, Lorenzo was out for a heap of races / unfit after shoudler surgery and Marquez had more than a few crashes. He needed 1 of those people to be unfit or crash out to guarantee a podium.
What? Out for much of it? Dani didn't miss any races in 2014 due to arm pump, and he had 9 podiums (1 of them a win). Lorenzo wasn't "out for a heap of races" in 2014 either, and he had 11 podiums (2 of them were wins). Rossi came in 2nd that year. In 2015, Dani only missed 3 races, and still netted two wins (and 6 podiums). Lorenzo wasn't out any races in 2015 due to shoulder injuries. You are a horrible statistician. Please don't quit your day job.

Outinfront: Yamaha need a rider faster than Rossi to replace Lorenzo - no point having Yamaha finish somewhere between 4th-6th with Rossi in that higher position
It's almost like you didn't watch the 2014/2015 seasons AT ALL. Rossi was on the podium, what....20-ish straight races before he was knocked off. He was on the podium 13 of 18 races in 2014....15 of 18 races in 2015. How on God's polluted Earth do you get finishing between 4th & 6th regularly????

SmoothCriminal: Racers like Biaggi and Gibernau were basically pushovers for Valentino. He was the top dog in those days that's for sure, those 2 couldn't beat him even riding a superior bike.THings started to go awry since Stoner came to the fold, The reason Stoner and Ducati started going backwards is that Bridgestone start designing tires around Vale's Yamaha when Michelin left.
So Biaggi was a pushover eh? From 98 to 05, Biaggi came in 2nd, 4th, 3rd, 2nd, 2nd, 3rd and 3rd in the WC. Max was competitive against Doohan, Kenny Roberts Jr....came in 3rd behind Doohan and Rossi (he was only 39 points shy of Rossi in 2000). He came 2nd to Rossi in 01 and 02, etc. Again, were you even watching racing during that time?!?!

Garcia:
SmoothCriminal: EDIT by CRASH.NET! Please do not post incorrect facts about the wall. This was erected at request of Bridgestone.
'Rossi requested that the wall dividing the Yamaha pits in 2008, due to a difference in tyre manufacturer for Rossi and Lorenzo, remain in place even after MotoGP switched to a single supplier in 2009' ht tp://www.crash.net/motogp/news/181371/1/lorenzo-no-wall-if-rossi-returns-to-yamaha.html#rPdBg9vvH8BE7SsW.99
You're not comprehending what you read Garcia. The WALL WAS ERECTED AT THE REQUEST OF BRIDGESTONE due to multiple tire suppliers. The wall stayed in place the following season at Rossi's request because J.Lo already demonstrated that he was up to speed and Rossi didn't want to share data. The Crash.net moderator was 100% accurate with his/her statement..

Guna4699: Deal has been done, Agostini was amongst the first big names to smell it out that Audi-Ducati has offered him a deal he can't refuse. Lorenzo has informed about his departure from Yamaha and that's why Lin Jarvis is attending the jerez Thursday press conference. Dovi was likely to get the axe for JL entry but Ducati's plan to renew Iannone's deal is put on hold after Argentina race. Lorenzo has a say on who he wants to team up with, VR has a say who can replace JL. Vinales is the front runner, Iannone is in the list of riders approved by VR to replace JL is MV is not available. VR-MV for Yamaha,, JL - AD for Ducati is more feasible at this juncture... AI possibly for Suzuki or KTM.
Interesting. Bring on the Jerez press conference and the news of who's signing where to see if you're right. :)

Twissta... Agreed. It's like saying Jordan doesn't deserve to be held up in such high esteem because there was no Kobe, or Labron, or "insert new wave player here". All the while, people who make those claims about Jordan weren't around to see the Kurt Rambis', Patrick Ewing's, Karl Malone's, Magic Johnson's, Kareem Abdul Jabbar's, etc. of that era, and how competitive the competition was when Jordan was putting up records. Kids, I tell ya!

crashnetdummies: JLo is already the highest paid bloke on the grid and Yam's contract offer is bigger than ever. I'll let you do the math...
No he isn't. Marquez and Rossi both earn more than he does...........significantly more. Even his new contract doesn't have him earning more than Rossi. In 2015 Lorenzo was the 3rd highest paid rider. His salary was $6 million and his net worth was $30 million. Marquez's salary was approximately $10 million, and he had a net worth of $35 million. Rossi's salary was around $10 million, and he had a net worth of a whopping $135 million. Talk about doing the math!??!?! The actual figures vary somewhat depending on the source, but J.Lo is #3 regardless.
