Phat chance of insight here..
When was the last time Lorenzo got out-qualified by both works Repsol bikes by a second?
The gap was larger at the Austin private test a month ago..MotoGP has banned tests of this type for the future because of the unfair advantage it allows.
The track could have been built by Nakamoto it so obviously suits the RCV's strengths.
Yet head Orange pom-pom wavers Nostro and Bulto insist it's nothing to do with machinery advantage, offering advice to World champs how to stand it up on the fat part.
Pedrosa hasn't brought home the bacon in 7 years and will probably receive the boot for next season, like he was penciled in to get this year before Stoner quit. Marquez is a rookie..but the result is all down to the skill of the riders, and that includes Bautista now.
It's unfair to point out the obvious and take the shine off their valiant efforts? Boo-fkin-hoo.
Every single commentator, pundit, ex-racer and fan knew what would happen..and so it came to pass graphically in front of eyes. Yet the see nowt and hear nowt ugly sisters continue their stubborn line of defence, which is all in the name of downplaying a very clear horsepower and gearbox superiority.
Granted..there will be other tracks where Yamaha hardware is closer, but CotA is HRC territory as plain as night follows day.
As plain as a satellite RCV blowing past a works M1.
