MotoGP » Rossi: Title calculations irrelevant, focus on Australia

It's very interesting to see the tides change. It wasn't long ago that people were exclaiming that Rossi would never ride a Yamaha again. He proved them wrong, and then the argument morphed into claims that he'd never win another race, and that moving to another Crew Chief would be his demise. He proved the doubters wrong again, but the negativity continued. The doubters said he might win a one off race, but he'd never be competitive again. Last year he came in second (ahead of his teammate), won multiple races and had a pretty nice podium run. Then they said that he'd never win another championship again. We've witnessed him ascend and make a 10th title a very real possibility, and now they're saying it's because of luck. What next? We've seen him become more and more consistent since returning to Yamaha, going from being off the podium 12 times in 2013, to 5 times in 2014 and ONCE this season. Well done old fox. Well done!

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I'm the fastest, bad luck is costing me

Codger: Jorge has a knack of turning up at a racetrack and going really fast straight out of the blocks. He can also turn in really fast early laps. With the former he must notice that the others close the gap to him as things progress. With the latter he should notice that there are occasions when others are able to close the gap as the race progresses. To state that he gets bad luck is a bit odd in so much that his comments are directed at his team mate, not at other riders that beat him. His fans are too sensitive, every post that is against Jorge is valid, it doesn't mean that they come from 'haters' or Rossi 'fanboys'. Jorge should remember that he gained a shed load of points when Dani beat Rossi into 3rd place recently. Or was that bad luck too.
Very well said. I couldn't have stated it any better.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I'm the fastest, bad luck is costing me

DB8: Its been a season where the riders have had to adapt and be versatile. He cant do that as well as Valentino, and that's why he is losing the championship. Is that bad luck??? Debatable. Valentino has beaten Jorge this season in good conditions too. Its disrespectful, petulant and bitter. This is the attitude you would expect of a rookie Shall we disect your previous world championships to see if there was any luck there? Oh, it would appear that you only ever won a world championship when your main rivals suffered serious injuries (real injuries too, I would add, not fake ones). I guess if we use your logic, you didn't really deserve those championships. Throwing stones in glass houses is risky business Jorge!!
Love this as well.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I'll keep believing until the end

RealDrWho: I think the only thing that Lorenzo is concerned about the most, is that an old fart that was put in as the number two is beating the number one in the team and the number two took a large pay cut, but will probably get paid more next season than the number two then.
Rossi already gets paid more. Always has! He has been the highest paid MotoGP rider since forever, and is the only MotoGP rider who consistently makes Forbes top 100 highest paid athletes in the world. For the 2015/2016 seasons, Lorenzo will make 6.5m, plus another 1m in endorsements. Rossi will be paid 10m (a cut from 12m the last time he was with Yamaha), and he will earn 8-10m in endorsements. Marquez will earn 10m for the 2015/2016 season as well as a reported 2m in endorsements.
