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...

Bit of a mess

The MotoGP race as a whole was a bit of a mess really. I don't understand why Pedrosa had to start from the back of the grid. The rider that caused the stoppage should have been the only rider to have been penalised, in this case Abraham. Yes the bike was taken off the grid then put back on but Pedrosas bikes brakes had jammed so it needed to be sorted. All that has meant Pedrosa has really suffered in terms of potentially winning the championship. As for Lorenzo he just needed to bring the bike home in one piece. I don't think Lorenzo pushed as hard as he could of as he knew after crossing the line first time around that Pedrosa was out of the race, so I think he just kept a comfortable gap back to Rossi.

Who gives a

fuck about Sissy Moaner and if he is faster or if he would do better that the man winning the QP session. The one fact is that the bitch quit cold for no apparent reason. Finally, Finally the idiott Elvis Presley has done what Valentino Rossi and Jermey Burgress wanted and did what they outlined for the development of the GP12.*.

Poor Nicky was left with the SHIT PIG from yesteryears (Stacey years), the one that Elvis felt that he would find another Sissy Moaner to ride it like Racey Stacey. Rossi is set to building the best Ducati ever and this race shows a bike that is better than all the Satellite bikes, finally.

Rossi is a true bike development god. Whereas Sissy Aussie boy cannot give his de-brief in such a way to allow for proper development of anything but a SHIT PIG. No wonder he quit as Dani has overtaken him with the build development of the Honda bike. His number one status took a severe hit and the bitch quit.

I have... read back... he was in the right place, gapped Bradl & the Tech 3 boys were nowhere... he's beaten Bradl several times this year as he has Bautista (which I also gave him full credit for at the time though maybe less noticable when it's for 6th or 7th place)... nothing new there but still an achievement to be proud of... none of these guys are slow... the fact that it's his home circuit & he tested here only a couple of weeks ago, while everyone else had next to no time to set-up, probably had next to no influence on the result which is a true reflection of where Ducati now are in their development & his superb racecraft on a bike he now seems to have mastered, as no doubt he will prove at the next 5 rounds.

Credit where credit is due... he got 2nd... full credit for doing what a 9 times champion might be expected to. For Bautista it was his 1st podium in MotoGP! 6 seconds off JL's time... he was 30 off the win at Brno... 22 at Indi... 50 at Laguna... they've found something really special... Next week a win?

My suspicion was that when Ducati had a test immediately after Rossi announced his move to Yamaha that then Ducati realised they were losing the knowledge of VR & JB - and only then they finally produced the frame and swinging arm that they had been asking for all along ….. and hey presto the bike was fast, more stable in the corners and didn’t shred the tyres and the bike was easier to work on and change things around on a race weekend. Funny that……..?
I suspect Preziosi’s pride and notorious stubbornness had previously stopped him from creating exactly what had been asked for by VR/JB. Shame it has taken him this long before he listened, but I said a couple of years ago on here that that would be the biggest stumbling block Ducati had.
Having said that though we need to see how it pans out in the last few races at tracks other than Misano where they test a hell of a lot….but perhaps it’s a positive step towards making a better bike for next season’s riders and contribute to closer racing through the field.

    Milkybars - Great post ! I found it hilarious,couldnt stop laughing.The Ducati gets its 2nd podium this year & Rossi is development king once again,Thats funny.Lets see how the Dukes fair in up coming races before presuming the Ducati is finally fixed.

    As for Casey quiting ! UM What about Rossi quiting Ducati ? Isnt that the same sort of thing ?

P.S. Casey is going out on top,his choice.Lets see if Rossi can do the same.

Yes that'll be it, Preziosi has a nasty case of nose / face spite'ing syndrome. Pathetic.

Stoner & Rossi..

Casey's not going out on top. He was third when he crashed hurting himself, maybe..make that probably feeling the pressure a bit, and he'll be lucky to hang on to that position.

He's gutted he won't now have the chance to back up his title..and not fully understanding the reasons why he quit just adds to his dilema

When he quit Ducati it was the same.

Pride fked with Stoners mind..


While it's true Ducati tested their new swinging arm and more adjustable frame at Misano and probably had an advantage, there's little doubt the new set-up seems to have solved some tyre degradation issues. Although he only set the 7th fastest rider lap, Rossi was able to manage the gap to third. His lap times were very consistent.

Honda and Yamaha tested at will have the advantage at the next race.

Rossi doesn't go well at Aragon but if he is competitive there, maybe the new parts are a step in the right direction.
