Lorenzo looks like he's back in the zone where he's as predictably fast as a machine.

Yes, and if it was just an adjustment to the shape of the gas tank that changed his entire season it is amazing that Ducati didn't figure out earlier.

Lorenzo's post qualy interview is classic lorenzo. Swagger and cofidence.
He is so scary fast on the ducati now.


Marquez had nothing for him.


But Miller was flying as well. Ducati seems to work well there.

Re: SPOILER - Misano MotoGP

Even while others have been ahead in points, Jorge has been the fastest and smoothest man out there.

I remember his epic high side at Laguna Seca when he rag-dolled from the third floor, he was up and racing the next day. Just like Stoner he crashed alot early on and then the razor blade came out.

It is interesting how the factories don't want to change their machines to benefit the individual. It's not like Joe Smuck is going to buy a MotoGP bike. Maybe Lorenzo could have been a long term champion for Ducati if they just could have seen past their own noses. Hondas are fast for many different riders and they are loyal to their riders as well.

For the average spectator, recognizing a change in a MotoGP bike is nearly impossible. When you have the top riders in MotoGP on your team, you need to keep them.

He does have an inner confidence not easily shaken. Imagine being ignored by the world press, when you know your full capabilities, but just get crapped on because you can't ride the Ducati to victory on the first weekend out.

Lorenzo is a Razor!

Re: SPOILER - Misano MotoGP

I love seeing Ducati finally in it every race and while it sucks for JLo, I'm impressed that he was pushing that hard at the end when in the thick of it.

I hope Lorenzo keeps his passion and drive next season and gives us all something to entertain us in his fight with MM. Well, that is, if he can ride the Honda.

Re: SPOILER - Misano MotoGP

Entertaining race for second place until Lorenzo tossed it away in the second to last lap, nobody had Dovi's pace today, and the factory Yamaha's just seem hopelessly outclassed by the Honda and Ducati, looks like MM has the championship all but sewn up,

Re: SPOILER - Misano MotoGP

We see fresh riding styles crop up all the time, like the leg wave. So I'm surprised Marquez' trick of pushing the bike back up after tucking the front hasn't caught on yet. Lorenzo's knee simply went limp under him after he lost the front today. Hopefully by next year everybody will be able to heave the bike back up onto the tires after laying it on its side.

Black flagged and banned from 2 races. Can you imagine the reception he's going to get when he returns to the paddock?

I think that move deserves more than a 2 race ban, in fact I would sit that guy out all through next season.

That was not a mistake - it was not racing - he deliberately grabbed at the brake lever - if the other rider crashed and had gotten injured or took out another rider then would he be punished correctly?

Heck I'm not even in the same world as any of these racers but I am on the track a lot - if someone did that to me - I would be going to jail later that afternoon - I honestly would brake the guys hand and wouldn't give a sh*t if I damaged it so bad he was screwed up for the rest of his life.

Re: SPOILER - Misano MotoGP

I looked for video showing what the hell happened leading up to the black flag event...








No the first time Fenati has been in trouble. Here in Moto3...









He was actually kicked out of Rossi's academy for young riders due to disciplinary issues. This guy's got anger issues...


Really, what he did should be criminal not just poor sportsmanship.

It really is a shame that this incident over shadowed a great win by Dovi and everyone can see that Ducati have finally conquered their demons and have produced a fantastic MotoGP bike.

Re: SPOILER - Misano MotoGP

I thought the race was the most boring in quite a while.
I will have to re watch it some time. While i can appreciate Ducati's progress, it was simply follow the leader for most of the race. Cept for lorenzo brief battle and fall with MM.

Thought completely the opposite Marquez can compensate for the Hondas deficiencies the best he could do was put pressure on the Lorenzo with not a hope of doing anything else Dovi was already gone just showed what a major step Ducati have made unless you think Marquez wasn’t riding well.

All will be revealed at Aragon which has always been a fortress for Marquez.

Re: SPOILER - Misano MotoGP

Ducati seem to be in a good place right now with their works bikes fighting for the podiums places week in and week out and Miller and Petruci backing them up in the top 10 - lets see if Phillip Island is any improvement. That will be the real tell.

On another note - look like Stoner is leaving Ducati's test role position and going to Honda? I have no doubt he is a great rider, but he developed the Ducati to a point where it was not capable of winning anymore and it has taken five years for them to recover. Why on earth would you want him to develop your bikes?

Re: SPOILER - Misano MotoGP

Why i’m Not a fan of any kind of religion because things become so distorted.

When Stoner was employed by Ducati as a MotoGP rider the whole crux of the issue he had with Ducati was ‘There was no development’ the race shop built a bike and told him to get on with it,when he gave feed back the race shop said there was nothing wrong with the bike it was him and his crew and in the end he left.

Step forward Rossi and he got the same treatment and went the same way step forward Gigi he realised straight away what was going on and made sure he had the power to knock heads together as in the guys in the race shop built the bike and used to tell the race team to do their job!!! when the race team complained the race shop said they didn’t know what they were doing!!! And Gigi stopped all of that not quite over night but pretty dam close.

He got all of them together and read the riot act to the lot of them with the bosses backing and with his tech input here we are.

Stoners current job with Ducati is as much PR the guy who does all the donkey is Pirro.
