MotoGP » Rossi, Lorenzo: It's not over yet for Marquez

theeagle: They're only saying this as there is nothing else for them to say. If he (Marquez) were winning all the races both Rossi & JoL would only be complaining. Fact is, - while its not impossible or out of the question- Marquez would have to win the next 2 races in a row and hope neither Rossi or JoL would finish just to recover the points alone. All the same, I welcome JoL's very good recent form and wish him well.
We haven't even reached the midpoint in the season yet, so why does he NEED to win the "next two races in a row"? All he NEEDS to do is keep it upright and get on the podium and score some points. Two non-scores are what has hurt him. Imagine had he taken the 20 points behind Rossi and had he not crashed today. He would be right there in the thick of it.

MotoGP » Rossi: Lorenzo's form is bad news for me

I wonder if cossiegaz is watching the same races we are. Saying he is "unable to improve on his qualifying" is the most retarded thing I've read today. An inability to improve to see him FINISH THE RACE LOWER THAN HE QUALIFIED, NOT FURTHER UP THE GRID THAN HE QUALIFIED. The man has been on the podium all season long. The only rider to accomplished that so far this season. With that said, Rossi needs to qualify better (or be closer in the opening laps) to get next to Lorenzo and rattle him. Running at the front with no challenge is Lorenzo's strength. Good damage limitation though. The old dog is in for a fight.

MotoGP » Redding disappointed with sixth row start

tuonogeorge: are you also applying this comment to MM he is also doing ****.If you take out the soft tyre Redding easily qualifies top ten.
The RACE is what matters. Why are you going on about qualifying? He lucked out this race because of attrition, so well played to him for keeping the bike upright..... ..but, add Dovi, Marquez, A.Espargaro and Crutchlow (and possibly a few others who didn't finish), and Redding would have been back there in 15th-ish. Poor riding for a factory rider. That's a certainty.

MotoGP » Rossi: It’s my fault

AyrtonSenna: I don't think you can make a statement like that. You will never know.
Oh save the rhetoric. Most of what is posted on this site is supposition, assumption, fantasy.....or a mixture of all three. One can LOGICALLY deduce that JL would have a problem BASED ON HIS RIDING STYLE. Here's what we DO know: Lorenzo is a very smooth rider and likes the bike inline. His strength is corner speed. The previous GP was not a smooth bike and it didn't have corner speed stability. It moved around a lot, required heavy braking and favored the Australian rear wheel steerer. Lorenzo does not like a bike that moves around a lot, if at all, and he is a front end rider just like Rossi and Dovi. He suffers big time when the bike isn't planted. He is not a late braker. It is SAFE to assume that he'd do no better than Rossi or Crutchlow, both of whom don't mind a loose bike and who are heavy brakers. Leave the emotion out of it and focus on being objective.

MotoGP » Rossi: It’s my fault

AyrtonSenna: It's also funny that you're quick to point out that "J.Lo has nothing to prove" [by riding the Ducati], but everybody tends to rate Stoner so highly because of the Ducati ( if riding the Ducati is the end all, be all), and people are quick to slate Melandri, Dovi, Crutchlow and Rossi because they couldn't get on with the Ducati ( if the lack of success on the Ducati somehow proves that they aren't worth their weight in rubber or championships). In my humble opinion, if a rider is considered/proven to be a "legend" because of a Ducati.......and a legend (Rossi) is disparaged and his illustrious career diminished (hater's words, not mine) because he couldn't ride the Ducati, then surely J.Lo DOES have something to prove by riding it. Until he does, he will always be lesser than everybody else who ever threw a leg over the red pig. [/devil's advocate]
