Valentino Rossi lauds ‘impressive’ Jorge Lorenzo

Valentino Rossi has given a fascinating insight into why he believes current world champion Jorge Lorenzo and Yamaha’s factory YZR-M1 are such a potent combination in the MotoGP world championship. The Spaniard produced an exhibition in speed and consistency on the second day of this week’s MotoGP test in Sepang today to set a best time of 2.00.282. That put him 0.369s...

2007 - which tyres were 2nd and 3rd place bikes in the championship using - where was the next Bridgestone bike if they were such an advantage. Which other Bridgestone bike won a race in 2007, other than 2 skewed wet races

2007 - Rossi had lost his own tyre advantage that he had enjoyed for years when the supply of overnight specials for raceday was banned. Something Bridgestone never did.

In fact, Rossi has commented during this test that he is having to try and alter his corner exit style to sit the bike up more as current tyres don't have the same edge grip as tyres from years back that he preferred - ie: tailored for him.

Lorenzo had to fight to get equal status / equipment for 2010 and it's suggested that talking to both Honda and Ducati at the time was a way of pushing Yamaha to give it to him. Whatever, they did write it into his 2010 contract. Rossi was calling his own bluff with Yamaha threatening to leave for all sorts - rallying, F1 - if Yamaha retained Lorenzo. He did not want Lorenzo there, let alone with equal status.
