MotoGP » Rossi mistake ends Marquez victory battle

@Mintox, Better to leave CS out of these discussions. You hold onto the past too tight and you miss the present. Plus, those myths are well and truely busted now. Also, You mention how he "developed" MM bike? Correct me if Im wrong in saying MM holds most if not all lap records currently, so if by any stretch of the imagination MM is on stoners bike (your inference), he is riding it a hell of a lot faster than stoner could.....

MotoGP » Jorge Lorenzo: 'It happens'

At this level its all about confidence in the bike, tires, electronics which all feed your self-confidence. Rossi didn't UNlearn how to ride fast during 2011-2013 and sudenly learned again in 2014....he lacked confidence in a number of things through those years. This is what Jlo is struggling with now, a lack of confidence in the bike or tires or both which have now fed into a lack of self confidence. Its a vicious cycle because as VR now knows, you need the results to regain your confidence but to get the results you need the confidence....... People bang on about how it took VR 3 years but Ducati didn't listen and last year Yam concentrated on Jlo (as they should have, he was fighting for the title). This year, Yam have given VR a frame he likes and his team have sorted out the breaking. A pre-season and 2-3 rounds was all it took when real, directed effort was concentrated on him! The same will be for JLo, if Yam direct attention to him for 3-4 rounds he will be back.

MotoGP » Rossi 'Lorenzo frustrated', Marquez 'fun is faster'

You have one of the greatest ever along with the one destined to join him in that club, telling Jlo to relax and find some fun again......Jlo should listen. As much as I bag Jlo (specifically to highlight to the VR haters their hypocracy), he is one of the best and has not lost his ability or nerve. He looks unhappy and that's what MM & VR are telling him (almost like his track coach should be). At what poiont do you put your ego aside and listen to those around you? As for moving to Honda, a lot of posters seem to think if Jlo wants it it will happen.....what do Honda want? Do you think that will have any impact?

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

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?
