MotoGP » Yamaha: Each day reduces chance of Lorenzo staying


I also stand by my statement that anybody who watched GP's in the mid/late 90's and early 2000's would not call any of Rossi's competitors pushovers, nor would they minimize his run at the top. It's mainly the new school teeny bopper GP fan(s) that came onto the scene around the time J.Lo came into GP (or even more recently) who conjure up nonsense because they have no perspective on it. They regurgitate that which they've heard passed down from other people who weren't around either.

MotoGP » Yamaha: Each day reduces chance of Lorenzo staying


TrueFan: Some of the other posts are pretty entertaining... Biaggi was competitive with Doohan. I can't remember a single race where Biaggi finished ahead of Doohan except when Doohan binned it, or Max was black flagged but kept riding, and Doohan just let him go. How is that competitive?
Read what is posted, not "into" what is posted. Competitive doesn't necessarily mean beaten (although Doohan binned it a few times which saw Biaggi win). Competitive means exactly that. In the sole year that they raced together, Max came in 2nd behind Doohan....being #2 to Doohan highlights that he was a competitive rider despite being beaten to the #1 spot. The top 3 spots are all "competitive rider" spots. In addition, the initial statement was that Biaggi was a pushover for Rossi. Despite both having multiple crashes in '00, Biaggi came out ahead 5 times. Rossi may have been a stronger rider, but to call Biaggi a pushover during that time is wildly inaccurate.

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. :)

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.

Planet:
Realist:
Planet: Motomatters reporting now that the deal is done & Lorenzo is going to Ducati, yamaha will make announcement next Thursday @ Jerez.
Can you post the link to what you're referring to? All I read on Motomatters was the speculative article from the end of March.
@realist see his Twitter feed
I don't use Twitter. I guess I'll have to wait for the official announcement.
