Misano MotoGP: Jorge Lorenzo wins after Dani Pedrosa crashes

The 2012 MotoGP world championship took another dramatic twist in Misano this afternoon, with Jorge Lorenzo claiming a priceless victory after main rival Dani Pedrosa crashed out of a dramatic race. Everything that could go wrong for Repsol Honda rider Pedrosa did as his hopes of winning a maiden MotoGP title suffered a crushing blow. After an aborted start when Karel Abraham...

missing Stoner!

Not a great race once Dani was out of it.  Lorenzo needs stiff competition week in, week out and he isn't going to get that from Pedrosa.  The latter will dominate 2-3 races a year and that's it - any examination of his motogp record since 2006 confirms this.

Watched moto2 later in the day and felt better - though one doesn't warm to Marquez (I'm cheering on Pol!), he looks amazingly talented.  Let's see what he can do with HRC once he gets used to the big bike.  Maybe this will be a successful challenge to Lorenzo domination for years to come.

He's not going to get it from stoner, he's been well beat this year, yes he did well just before he crashed but he gambled on the soft tyre when everyone else was on the hard, since then everyone has run the soft tyre every race so he'd be back to losing(4th at Indy) by some way again without question. His fans are completely deluded thinking he would have taken the fight to Jorge and Dani. Still with Dani falling off there is a good chance stoner would have beaten him at the weekend if he stayed on himself that is.. Though whether he'd have beaten Rossi is another matter all together... Very unlucky Dani this weekend, has cost him dearly, has virtually no chance now.. Great rides from Rossi and Bautista, 2 days testing maybe, but that does not guarantee you a podium , that's a fine result for Ducati, yes the two factory hondas were out but the Tech3 bikes were well beaten. No doubt Furasawa would have already done a lot of work on the duke(previous conversations with Presiozi or just down to his own experience of what works) and I suspect his 'conversation' with presiozi had a bit more to it than, sorry, no thanks!, no matter what he told the press and yamaha.. A guy like that I suspect can't resist the challenge totally... Still long way to go for Ducati..

Not really. Only two more months of this yellow hell then back on track properly.

Sad

What happened yesterday was a real blow for Dani and the spectators as it was shaping up to be a real grandstand finish to the title race, he does seem to attract any bad luck going. On balance though it is one a piece as Jorge was skittled @ Assen in the first turn, so one race dnf each due to other riders errors.

Rossi .. great ride to second, obviously the lovers will make a lot of it, the haters will put a downer on it but if Pedrosa had not been taken out it would have still been 3rd place, he didn't inherit the position as he entered the first corner in 2nd place ( which would have been third if Dani had statrted from pole ). 

He definitely looked more comfortable on corner entry than he has for the last 18 months, let's see how it goes for the remaining 5 rounds... particularly Sepang which is one of his favoured tracks.

Rea - did all that was expected, got faster as the race progressed and didn't put it in the gravel.

Be a complete fool to believe that Ducati will go better than Rossi(yamaha) next year, surely your not one of those Nostro??? Casey's 4th at Indy was 19 seconds back of the leader... What more proof is needed that Rossi would have beaten him in the dry at the weekend..

If the point you're trying to make Hardlylean

is that a fully fit Rossi would be competitive with a badly broken Stoner. Then yes, I'll concede that one.

"Casey's 4th at Indy was 19 seconds back of the leader. What more proof is needed that Rossi would have beaten him in the dry at the weekend.."

Was that not with a broken foot?... hack his arm off & he'd probably be a good 30 secs off the pace :lol:...

Stoner didn't race yesterday... in that respect Rossi beat him. At Indy he did... with a broken foot... & beat Rossi by over 30 seconds despite missing out almost a complete qualifying session. What planet are you on?

Mr consistent

Lorenzo is going strong for the championship. I'm no ped fan but u have to feel sorry for the guy. He no doubt would have given Lorenzo a run 4 his money! Shame about cal...... Rossi, well I still believe he can win races in moto GP, as ive always said, he's still got it. Only a fool be-littles a moto GP 2nd position. He kept the rest at bay. Hopefully he will be able to end his time on the duke on a positive note.
