Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo expect better relationship in 2013

Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo have both said they expect their relationship to be much less tense than the last time they shared Yamaha’s factory MotoGP garage in 2010. When the pair raced together between 2008 and 2010 their rivalry was one of the most intense in recent MotoGP history, with the pair frequently clashing on and off the track. After a...

Wibbly wobbly Jorge..?

Lorenzo is the best rider out there at the moment..it says so on the tin but, at just 25 he ain't the finished article.

Last year we saw a couple of clues that, like the rest in varying degrees, he can still be vulnerable.

He should have beaten Dani at Brno by protecting the inside line. He knew the RCV had the legs on him up horsepower hill into the final chicane and didn't make Pedrosa go the long way round.

Trying to overtake Ellison by stepping off a thin drying line in the twisties at Valencia, unaware that Dani had made a mistake and given him more breathing space than he thought, wasn't too clever either.

 

Nostro reckons it was Val who showed all the immaturity at Yamaha..well what about Champion elect Lorenzo at Motegi 2010?

He was virtually guaranteed the title but elected to get in an unnecessary scrap for 3rd with his team mate to try and prove his credentials, and got his sorry arse handed to him..haha.

Then..went crying to Yamaha management and gave a weepy interview to the cameras entirely blaming Rossi, just like Stoner and Gibernau did, and who he used as examples that Rossi was a dirty rider. What a fkin Pussy.

This is what he had to say about that period of time and Rossi at the Launch on Thursday..

"Now we are a bit older, more mature, especially me, as I was only 20 when I arrived in MotoGP."

Maturity

Yes Lorenzo has matured as a person, whereas Rossi choose to remain a petulant brat. Proper cool riders like Lawson said he would help his teammate Rainey (who he didn't particularly like at the time) to the title when he came back from injury enforced absence in 1990. This Lawson duly did. But Rossi's ego was too big for this type of magnanimous behaviour. 


Interesting to note Nr.2 saying the M1 has improved markedly in all areas since he last rode it in 2010. Quite contrary to what Hardlylean suggested with Lorenzo being primarily in charge of development direction these past few years. Lorenzo and his nr.2 do have similar styles, so it's hardly surprising they share thoughts on the behaviour of the M1.

Team mates.

I take it this maturity doesn't apply to Stoner last year at Phillip Island then?

As you say Nostro, the dynamic was different in 2010 and not the same as Rainey/Lawson either.

Lorenzo didn't need anybodys help at that stage of the season 2010..he was a country mile in front and his nearest rival was in hospital.

Rossi was on the comeback trail looking for win #46 at Yamaha. Jarvis had not aquiesced to his wishes, Lorenzo had a new contract in his pocket and Val was on his way out to Ducati.

Lorenzo had been saying he wanted a battle with Rossi..and he got one.

Being the racer he is..Rossi obliged. Lorenzo started it. Rossi finished it.

 

With regard to Lorenzo's thoughts on Rossi's input to the M1 going forward..This is what he said at the launch.

"Such an experienced rider like Valentino, with that special feeling he has on track, where he feels everything, will help the engineers at Yamaha and me, to understand if the feeling I have when I try something new on the bike is same as his. You know, if two riders have different feedback from the same material, then it’s so difficult to develop the bike. In Sepang we gave our engineers the same feedback about the new material and this gives us confidence to improve the bike quicker."

Your memory is failing you Wosi..

There you go having a snide crack at Lorenzo, suggesting he isn't yet the finished article. You mention the Ellison fiasco, which we all agree was self inflicted, but you've left yourself wide open for derision due to your blatant disregard for Rossi's recent failings. The obvious one that immediately springs to mind is his schoolboy error in taking out Stoner at Jerez, and then of course not having the balls to apologise without taking his lid off. Face facts old man, they're all human, so they are never the finished article..

Not comparable Wosi

It was the overly aggressive manner (and the possible injury inducing nature of it going wrong) of Rossi's passing on his teammate trying to seal his first championship; not the winning of the race that was at issue Sepang 2010. Yeah Lorenzo engaged him - as a racers instinct does - before his cooler head prevailed and he took the podium to seal the deal.


 Pedrosa crashed at Philip Island 2012 through his own mistake. Where's the parallel?

But enough of that,  Sepang 2010 ended happily for both. Let's talk cricket old bean.
