MotoGP » ‘Scared’ Lorenzo haunted by Assen injury


As a racer I can honestly say fear of injury doesn't play a factor and fear of death is non-existent (this ain't IOM) Jlo has had many crashes throughout his career like all riders...he's not scared of physical injury at all. What scares Lorenzo is fear of failure and for these guys at the top of the game crashing is totally unacceptable unless machine or another rider is at fault. The number one rule in racing is "to finish first, first you must finish". Losing to another rider is ok as long as you don't fall off the damn bike because you tried too hard. That humiliation is hard for a top racer to handle. Just look at how Stoner reacted to his LS 08 defeat...it's not because Rossi beat him, it's because he looked like an amateur sitting in the kitty litter after trying too hard...The last thing Lorenzo wants is that.

MotoGP » Guy Coulon (Tech 3) - Q&A


These GP bikes are definitely as rideable without tc and the other aids as any other motorcycle in the world. The throttle response can be tuned thru ignition and fuel just like always has been. Riders will be forced to take more caution with the throttle is all. The teams who don't have the tuners and riders to make the most if the bike will be slower...just like in the 500 and early 4stroke day. Simple really. "Unrideable" is a myth continually propagated by the pro-electronics gallery. Electronics have become way too invasive...let the riders detect the wheelspin not the ecu. Yes I'm sure overall the the bike will be harder to ride as fast as they are today but the rider would once again be most important determining factor.
