MotoGP » Lorenzo: It’s been the opposite of Jerez


The soft tire lasting the race is not this issue, its whether it will have enough grip to allow him to push come the final laps. We know in all races (bar one), VR has had enough in reserve to push during last laps where JLo hasn't (as much). I have no doubt it will be DP, Jlo & VR scrapping for positions come the last laps but Im pretty sure it wont be VR worrying about tires.

MotoGP » 'Big disaster' averted, Rossi ready to fight


Huskymick:
lux:
Think he has had his day. But the sport will suffer until he calls it a day. No new blood on works bikes.
Sure hes not as good as he was during his top years. But what you say sounds, sorry, totally stupid. Why should *he* go among everyone? Without MM who's killing the field Vale would probably be the favourite for the title!!
He's only 3rd at the moment and far from walking away with it.
...which means there are 20 odd others to go before him including Jlo!!!

MotoGP » Le Mans MotoGP - Qualifying (2) Results


V4Poweeeer: Gap from 1 to 2 six tenths gap from 2 to 12 six tenths Marc is amazing not much else to it. Dani and Jorge must be a bit stunned at the moment.
More so DP, Jlo is still fooling himself with the bike/tire crap, so he will write it off easier. This is why VR is such great value....he knows MM is a step (or 2) ahead and is focused on trying to catch him while JLo is simply kidding himself and waiting for someone to hand it to him on a plate....

MotoGP » 'Lot of problems' for unhappy Rossi


Two steps forward, one step back.... Some of the posters here need to think about how they keep stating Jlo is strong and will come back yet the first real set-back for rossi is in practice at round 5 and some are banging on about JB and the usual crap. Grow up...if you think VR is that bad, what do you really think about Jlo since VR is No1 Yamaha in WC, No1 in his team (as No2 rider) and 3rd in WC.....on same bike and tires. Go rossi!!! Grow up haters and I look forward to your post race comments.....

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Better than it looks


Wonder what he will say IF he finishes 4th again but with the most consistent lap times...... Consistency only matter when you have the pace to run top 3 where the podium positions are decided by which rider makes the least mistakes (2010,11&12 for example). At the moment (along with VR), Jlo doesn't have the pace to challenge for 1st or second and has to be ultra consistent just to battle for 3rd. This assumes he doesn't suffer any "fade" like jerez because we have seen that VR has the pace come the end of the race to push. Not saying he wont have a good race, simply that you cannot predict that based on his consistency. If you could, you would have to predict a bad race as so far this season (bar 1 race), he consistently finishes behind the top 3?

MotoGP » Lorenzo: My dream is to stay with Yamaha


TrueFan: Ducati needs to concentrate on fixing their race bike. They need some consistency in their riders to do that. Lorenzo has practically declared his hand now anyway, and it's hard to imagine Yamaha turning away from him, he's been too good for them. And once again, the best rides disappear as if by magic...
While I agree at a general level, Yamaha did turn away from Rossi when hes had been even better for them than Jlo has been to date. Who know how these decisions are made but one thing is for sure, results are only one part of the equation.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez extends Honda MotoGP contract


Think for a moment. Honda have already signed MM so almost certainly the WC for at least this year and fair chance next year (no one knows what 2016+ will bring). They don't need Jlo in order to get the WC! They already have the rider in DP to back up MM and get the manufactures title as per last year. DP is (along with Hayden) the total professional when it comes to team player and politics alike. They dont need JLo to get the MWC and keep a settled "boat". Is it only me that think Honda don't actually need JLo. They may want him if they can get him for X amount but they don't need him. Another way to look at it...Jlo & MM don't get on and both want to be No.1. Why would Honda risk having not only internal issues but on track issues with these guy's???? Like I said above, they don't actual need JLo!

MotoGP » Front row first target for 'pretty fast' Rossi


Rossi generally choses his words carefuly so if he is starting to say things like he is pretty fast, he was able to beat Jlo & Pedro then I think he is confident he has the package he wants now and that it still has improvement to come. I said earlier this year, the package (VR, Yam & Bridgestone) are the real deal this year and it won't (shouldnt) be a shock if he consistantly finishes ahead of DP & Jlo. When MM has a bad day, maybe VR will win but I think the real competition for the WC will be next year. It's Marcs this year to lose. Yam are listenning more and more to VR (new frames appearing and its VR that likes them...) so I see his side of the garage getting stronger through the year regardless of what anyone else is doing.
