Conservative and about right Lorenzo #99
Much complaints about the M1 emmanating from one side of the fence. The ground war may be ever so tilted in HRC's favour right now. Rider wise,in terms of the long haul to the title. George has got 99% of the bases covered,not least his team mate.
Dani and Marc ? Formidable lineup in terms of talent. Waiting in the wings, Stefan and Alvaro. The pair of them are slipping under the radar but will pounce on any failure and exploit it to the n'th degree. Neither lack talent at this level and are perfectly capable should a member of the elite ensamble fail.
Then there is the Ducati story. Dovi has come on leaps and bounds with the beast in short order, much like he did with M1 1OOO last season. Granted, he's a second back from the last test, Sepang 2. I don't think Jerez will do Ducati's cause any favour's in Jerez. de la Frontiera. On the other hand if the joker in the pack comes into play by hook or by crook, don't cry foul.
You all know the drill by now. Surfeit of horsepower, tyres and blah,eh ?
I do hope Ducati and their riders close the gap exponentially and it is absolutely plausible.
Jerez test shocker on the cards. Austin. Well its been a HRC/Yamaha poke. Entertaing. Certainly !
