Eddie Lawson: Yamaha now best MotoGP machine

American legend Eddie Lawson reckons Yamaha’s YZR-M1 is now comfortably the best MotoGP bike on the grid. Fiat Yamaha duo Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo have won nine out of 13 races so far in 2009 to end Ducati’s early 800cc era domination.

I only knew him as God

Primarily for winning the title in 1989 on one of the most evil racing machines ever built - the 1989 NSR500. I recall reading Sir Anal Bathfarts test ride of that machine. I think Sir Catheter got off the thing shaking and in complete awe of Eddie. Good enough for me. Respect Eddie, one of the great champions.

I agree with him, If you you at the results and ranking. the Rossi and Lorenzo placed 1 and 2, and the top sattelite Team which is the TECH 3; their bike is YZR-M1 as well.

Not important

Motorcycle racing started in 2000 when Rossi entered the big class.  What happened before is irrelevant. ;-)

Learn from the past and build on that for the future. Rossi does exactly that. He idolises Ago, reveres Sheen, admires Schwantz and taken components special to Spencer, Doohan, Lawson, Rainey, Neito and many others and made them part of the personna that is Valentino Rossi. History is important to him, possibly vital.

He'd be the first to argue that motorcycling did NOT start with him and that without the greats of the past his skills would be less than they are now.

So respect to Eddie Lawson, take on his comments and learn from the other "oldies" when they comment - they have earned it - what's your claim to fame steve1992, jnh-hrs07, et al?
