Agreed also Lorenzo has been pretty funny the entire weekend. It would be nice to see another rider with a shot at bictory I mean victory. I wonder who will win a race first Lorenzo or rossi. How far away is Austria?

Great ride by Dani. He will probably go down as one of the best riders never to win a championship if he doesn't get one before retirement.

I hope Lorenzo continues to improve. That was a solid ride by him.

I'm really impressed by Zarco. I hope they give him more factory support but Yami usually doesn't do that for their satellite teams.

zarco should have the other factory bike. there is a washed up has been holding the seat hostage.

as i said if lorenzo didnt go to ducati maverick would be rotting on the suzuki.

dont give me that crap he is competitive. if it weren't for crashes he would be down 20 points on everyone. so many others can do more with that bike.

Until someone else can generate the money and fanatical fans that Rossi can, other riders have to sit back and wait until Rossi retires. It's about wins and revenue generated and no one brings in money like Rossi.

while i believe this 100% especially after the tech 3 boss saying his guys will not race the factory team unless they can pass without danger i believe this makes the championship less exciting.

Is Dani back into being competitive?

Zarco is a beast !!!

marc said lets just keep it close till catalunya after that they become his circuits.

he also said only threat out there is maverick. hahahaha

will you rossi fans be nervous if he doesnt have a win and then comes austria on aug 13 a track where ducati can come in 1-2?

I was rooting for him(Lasail) before he crashed and want to see what Rossi and Maverick had to said if Zarco had won

Honestly, Rossi looks like he has crested the hill. I do think he is where he was last year mentally or physically. Being competitive is a state of circumstances. That being said, anything can happen. In all fairness the only way to call it is wait till its over but since the boys need their version of "Housewives" we can speculate. If everything is perfect for everyone, Rossi is not on the podium. Its that simple. If all that mattered to the bottom line for a motorcycle enterprise was having the two fastest riders then yes, Its time for Yamaha to make some changes however it is not and until the performance be it on or off track of Rossi starts to negatively effect the global sales juggernaut that his branding has created, he isn't going anywhere. So I actually agree with Mark in some respects however from a business perspective, to suggest that Yamaha is foolish for not dumping Rossi for new talent will get a stay in a padded room. Rossi is good for business however for some,he may not be the best for racing.
Thanks from youngR and Macattack
