MotoGP » Marquez in favour of banning winglets


007: Some of you really need to have a a wider perspective of things. Don't be so narrow minded. Now it's because Lorenzo is going to Ducati that Vale and MM want to have these banned. This has nothing to do with Lorenzo going to Ducati. I honestly want to wait till the next round at Le Mans to see how the Ducati performs there, to form my opinion on how JLo's next season will pan out. If the Duke is in trouble like they were in Jerez, I feel that JLo will be thinking hard about the decision he just made..
I agree with your overall perspective. In many ways, I want Lorenzo to struggle a bit next year on the Ducati. My reason for saying that is........humility. Stoner struggled. Rossi struggled. Last year Marquez struggled. J.Lo has never really had a struggle in the premier class, and I think struggling on a bike will humble him. He'll know what it feels like to have a bike underneath him that doesn't act the way he wants it to.

MotoGP » Rossi: We’ll continue with conventional fuel tank


Luvnit: I would say that Valentino's attitude has definitely changed because he is more determined than ever! You can say what you like about forgetting what happened to him last year but Valentino says himself, he never forgets and he never forgives!! He uses the track to seek his revenge!
I think he buried the last three races of last season deep within him, and is using that to fuel his 2016 title charge. He has mentioned it in recent interviews that "what happened last year will stay with him", and that is telling. On top of that motivation knowing that he should have won last year, he has finally orchestrated a J.Lo exit, so effectively he's preparing to take his team back. His front row starts/qualifying have improved this season, and I do believe that he is out to prove a point. He said it himself, "I'm going to prove that last year wasn't my last shot at the title".

Realist: Fun read.... w w w.sportrider.com/motogp-back-story-on-jorge-lorenzos-move-to-ducati?src=offramp&loc=region-4&lnk=txt#page-8
"Yamaha has a yellow heart..." that is, at Yamaha, Rossi is always bigger than Lorenzo. It is true that Lorenzo never made Yamaha his home. Part of it is because of his unstable and suspicious character, but mostly because the presence of Rossi is too strong. after all, it was the hand of the Italian that changed the history of the company.. "Suspicious character", wow.... spot on. nobody wants to have a leader like that..
After finding that article, I started searching for stuff using the heading "Yamaha doesn't like Lorenzo", and there were quite a few articles that popped up regarding Yamaha being displeased with his behavior last year (and how they felt following Valencia last year). It's really interesting stuff.

MotoGP » Scott Redding: I was worried


gammagamma: “No wrong choice,” insisted Redding, who was one of four riders to pick the softest rear compound. “The tyre was falling apart. I probably shouldn't say it but it is the truth and it's cost me another race." LMFAO!!!!! So, to the detriment of almost all the other racers, Michelin constructs a different tire that can withstand the "heft" of Gigantor, and he proceeds to choose the softest tire available and then rips it apart and blames Michelin. He should be given a penalty point.
Good point!

MotoGP » Official: Jorge Lorenzo joins Ducati


GlazingVegas: I look at finishing position . As teammates Rossi beat Jorge in 08,09,14 Jorge beat Vale in 10,13,15. Somehow you think this means Jorge has dominated.... I see it differently. And 2 of the times Jorge beat him one was 10 when Rossi missed 4 races and the other was only 5 points. Hard to say Jorge has his number . Looks even to me
Exactly, and world championship (and WC position) is all that matters at the end of the day. People who try to side step that very simple fact are grabbing at straws. It's funny how people dismiss WC position when it's a Rossi vs J.Lo debate (and start ushering in nonsense about most wins, laps led, etc.), but are quick to slag off Pedrosa because he doesn't have a WC (but he has a lot of wins), or slag off Hayden who has a WC, but very few wins.

ccwn: @lux and @Sete, This post from lux as a reply to your posts Sete, I couldn't have said it any better myself. Your constant attempts to belittle Rossi on this forum, every chance you get, just show the smallness of your own mind. Let it go, the man has given and is giving everything to this sport. And the fact that you, and others like you, keep coming up with the same five or six controversial moments during his twenty year career, is laughable to me. Controversial things happen when you are at the top for so long. And a guy like Marquez already has the same number of controversial things in a career that is a quarter of Rossi's in length.
...and it's funny how they conveniently forget J.Lo's transgressions in the lower classes, and his issues with Marco Simoncelli.
