MotoGP » Lorenzo: It’s like tennis…


I think Jlo meant Motogp for him is like tennis in that it goes back and forth depending tires and track. As he noted his strengths are corner speed and acceleration. When the track and tires don't match his style he can't be as competitive. Rossi's style on the other hand is a bit of a hybrid as he has decent corner speed (not as good as JLo) but closer to the point and shoot. This hybrid style allows him to be a bit more consistent on most tracks. But just like most riders Rossi has some tracks that he favors over others. Marquez's style is probably a little more similar to Rossi's but leans his body more to allow slightly less or same lean of bike to gain more tire contact. As you've probably noticed Rossi has on occasion used a similar body lean (but not as extreme as Marquez).

Prof I agree that TC does take out some of the skill of riding. On the flip side you can see as the ECU/TC/etc... was developed through the years that riders esp. new riders coming up who adapted and became dependent on these electronic nannies have exploited the technology. Don't know what planet the haters are from but Rossi did at some point note he would like to see less of these electronic nannies but he realized if he wanted to compete with new riders that were adept at exploiting this technology he needed to understand how to utilize it as well to allow him to compete. If the nannies were turned off, which they won't be, the top riders may change a little. Rossi would be up there without any doubt. Others that depend heavily on electronic aids may have trouble until they adapted. Some would and some wouldn't. Also the comment that if they turned off the electronics that Motogp would turn out like F1 is just ridiculous. I think that it would make it better not worse, but like

cont'd - ...but like I said before electronics aren't going away because the manufacturers want to keep developing it for it's street products. Even with the limitations of a stock ECU I believe they'll continue to work with the manufacturers to develop it. The only difference is that it will be shared by all the teams not just the top or richest teams.

MotoGP » Rossi: Title charge is on


That's just ridiculous, Yamaha made chassis changes as both riders probably asked for certain changes to help them with feel, reaction to suspension or tires. I'm sure they gave both riders the option to keep the old chassis or new chassis. Rossi liked the new chassis so he kept it and my guess it helps Jlo as well because I have not heard he didn't like it or kept the old chassis or asked for last years chassis and tires (or was that another Spanish rider).

MotoGP » Rossi: Title charge is on


I looked at most of the messages on this thread and didn't see many comments noting that Marquez or Pedrosa didn't deserve the win. Yes some folks noted (like myself) noted factors that contributed to their 1st and 2nd places but they deserved those places 100%. Pedrosa had a nice pass around Rossi and it was fair and clean unlike his teammates usual passes on riders.

MotoGP » Rossi: Title charge is on


Realist agree about not getting upset at terming one brand having an advantage at one track over another. That happens based on strengths and weaknesses of the bike and track to your bike. But at this track I think the tires had a lot to do with it. My guess that the harder tire didn't work on the Yamaha as well as the soft but the harder compound gave the Honda's an edge. I guess this occurs at times the opposite way as well.

MotoGP » Rossi: Title charge is on


Even though it wasn't a win I give lots of credit to Rossi but it would have been nice to come in 2nd. It was obvious that the Honda's with the better tire choice and a little more top speed had the advantage all weekend. For a brief time when Rossi was moving up the field I thought maybe he can reach the front spot if Marquez was closer to pos 2 & 3 but then he pulled away before Rossi arrived near the front. But the main objective of staying in front of Lorenzo even if only for 3 points (over Jlo) was achieved by Rossi. In terms of the championship I think it's way too early for any predictions but Rossi has a good shot at it even though 13 points is not insurmountable by any means. That said, Rossi's current form is encouraging and I wouldn't bet against him.
