MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


Realist: That's a funny statement considering that Bautista was under threat to lose his seat earlier this season, and his future was uncertain. I think Fausto looked around and realized that all of the better riders were more or less contracted. It was either keep AB or run a rookie, and in that case it's better to deal with the devil you know rather than the devil you don't. Let's not sit here and act as though Fausto didn't give Bautista ultimatums due to his performance. The 2013 season showed glimpses of brilliance from Bautista (and looking at his career as a whole, he really hasn't done half bad), so I'm sure that was a consideration.
Where did you get these informations, or is it just speculation ? Normally a rider having a season like Bautista should be dumped no matter what. So the disappointing raw results aside, Fausto maybe knows something you don't after all ?

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I have to accept it


therealDave: To a certain dummie, 13 mention's of Rossi's name prior to my original post with 28 of Jlo's (roughly). Does this rate as "barely mentioned"? ....yeh, get real! I would also highlight your use of his name in your concersation with Codger & Yearby and there is a distinct slant to your comments.....yeh, get real! I would also highlight only 28 mentions of Jlo's on his own thread?????? Even stoner, miller, vinales and the other marquez rated mentions yet only 28 for the guy who the thread is about! Always nice to highlight stupid comments.....enjoy your day:)
Once again I see only one person trying to divert discussion from Lorenzo and it's you. Keep stirring the pot mate.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I have to accept it


therealDave: Who are we talking about again? This discussion sounds very farmiliar..... If he gets this and if he gets that? A lot of people want Jlo so much to succeed because he (along with someone else) was the "proof" that VR was a fraud, right? If you are still struggling to accept that while MM is fit, motivated and on a competitive bike, JLo will struggle to win another WC, then that would explain your hatred of VR. I am not saying Jlo wont or can't win another WC but he definatley wont be as dominant as he has been the past 3 years prior to this year. And to win the WC, it will take as much bad luck for MM as great racing from Jlo. My opinion only!
My opinion is that you seem to be the one here having a problem with Lorenzo defeating Rossi and not the other way around. Fraud ? We barely mentioned VR on this thread, get real Dave.

Codger: I notice everybody has written off Rossi's chances......and Dani's.
And there's a reason for that... Rossi hasn't won a single race since 2010 and as Hayden, Stoner and Marquez made the demonstration the Repsol Honda is a bike fairly capable to win a championship. I would love to be proven wrong though, nothing better for the sport than a major upset.
Rossi won a race last year...
Very true. I would even say he totally deserved it, in contrast to his rivals Rossi didn't make any mistake that weekend

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I have to accept it


Yearby23: If Yamaha can equal Honda fully in terms of machinery then I think Lorenzo can push for a title next year. It would be extremely close though. But it'll be Lorenzo v Marquez for the next couple of years before the next young rider, Vinales/Miller/A.Marquez, comes through.
It will likely take them more than 2 years to get the well needed full factory seat to compete for a WC. Still we don't know whether Bridgestone will keep going with those unpopular new tyres (read, Marquez aside all Rossi, Pedrosa and Lorenzo criticized the new rubber at several points in the season) or what Michelin will bring to the table in 2016. 2016 ? Seems like a revolution with the different rules. What about the injury factor ? Do people really think Marquez will never ever get injured riding over the limits on daily basis? Don't get me wrong, he's absolutely amazing and I'm being euphemistic...

I agree Marquez looks unbeatable at the moment but I also think you're selling Lorenzo too short. The new tyres Bridgestone surprisingly brought in 2014 really messed up with Lorenzo on and off the track. He seems to get better now and If some day Lorenzo can get some rubbers with a sticky edge grip again, I think he'll give MM a run for his money. We'll ser.
