MotoGP » Iannone ‘eliminates doubts’ on Ducati


Codger: Realist.....thanks for the link......as you say, a good read. Not much that we didn't already know though, but it puts into perspective the demise of Stoner's results on it, and also why JB and Rossi couldn't sort it. Hope for the future though ?
You and I (..and some of the others) realize that the problem was largely internal, but others insist that Rossi was the problem. Objective minds know that not to be the case, and my purpose in posting that was hopefully to shed some clarity for those who can't see beyond He of the Yellow Fame. Ducati's issues have been pervasive for quite some time, and if nothing else, Rossi's inability to gel with that bike "made" Ducati have to look inward at their bike as Rossi is proven talent. Let's hope that GiGi's new bike is something awesome.

MotoGP » Iannone ‘eliminates doubts’ on Ducati


philholt101: Why all the negative comments about him then I'm not a big Lorenzo fan but feel that as soon as he got the measure of Rossi all the little fanbois thought they had to go on the Jlo attack, and judging by most of the posts on here most do seem to think that he isn't really that good
It really has nothing to do with Rossi. It's JL's complaining about tough races, being a sour sport, whining about flags on wet races (because his strategy backfired), etc. It's those little things that eat at fans who would otherwise not have much to say about JL.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain


Insidejob: Crash says, " Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain" "Force..." Jorge says, “I think if the white flag is waved and then all MotoGP riders have two laps to enter [the pits] it would be a good option” "...option." If the conditions are becoming treacherous then it's sensible. If it's spitting then wait to see if it worsens. If there's only 3 or 4 laps to go it could be a game changer.
It's "force". He's suggesting a finite 2 lap maximum. That is a forced decision that he's saying would be a good "option" [For Dorna] to consider.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain


therealDave: Those 2 who finished in front of him have not mentioned such a move? Do they not understand the risks like Jlo does? I would suggest the other 2 are now grinning from ear to ear:)
Exactly! What Twisted fails to realize is that we can measure J.Lo up against his peers. We don't all have to be track day riders/racers (I have am and have been) to be able to perform such a measure. He's just upset because his strategy didn't work out, and it left him behind his teammate. I can guarantee that we wouldn't be having this rain day discussion if his strategy had worked to his advantage like it did the race before.
