Jorge Lorenzo deflated after slump to seventh

Jorge Lorenzo suffered his worst finish in the MotoGP world championship since the final race of his rookie season in 2008 after the reigning world champion slumped from second to seventh in Le Mans.Slowed by a chronic lack of rear grip on a wet track, Lorenzo was languishing down in ninth position at one stage and only regained two places...

That's a pretty impressive stat for Jorge though...a 7th being his worse finish since 2008! Mental.

"Don't upset your mate Nostro he thinks the M1 is equal to  Honda's RC."

For a start, my logic-challenged ... erm .. acquaintance,  those two opinions are not mutually exclusive.  The 2013 M1 could be worse than the 2012 and still be the equal of the 2013 RC.  It was the best bike over the course of last year, after all.

Secondly, we're not mates. Thirdly, from what I've read from Nostro, he doesn't seem to get upset when people have a different opinion to him.

TL;DR - You're as wrong as always.  Keep on truckin'

Define equal

The Honda has a better motor, they say, and the Yam has the better chassis, apparently. Seems fairly equal to me so far, add a more complete rider plus a has been and an almost was with the new definition of speed and I'd say you're pretty equal there too. What is there to not comprehend?

Add tracks that naturally favour either horses or Utterly Butterly and things again seem pretty equal, to me at least. Personally I think it comes down to who wants it more and "bad" bikes have always been capable of winning so blaming the bike doesn't wash, soz.

No doubt about it

Lorenzo had some serious mechanical grip issues early on. Lets hope for Yamaha's sake Rossi's input is not upsetting their #1 rider's applecart. Yamaha complaining about tyres? They poached Bridgestone and got a single manufacturer rule enforced guessed it,Rossi as the development consultant.

Hardly surprising HRC and Ducati went backwards as a result last year. Nakamoto has it covered this year and Ducati will come on strong post Mugello. Oh yes,I thoroughly enjoyed Suppo's take on the race.

Very smart of him not to even mention #46. As old Bob says...A Museum piece. Meanwhile Wosi and myself will back the #93 Honda as we both love L-4's of any persuasion,be it Honda or Ducati wrapped in alloy twin beam persuasion. Thanks VAL.

yzrm1...why so bitter?

Either in your ignorance youve forgotten Dani is a 3 time world champion already? 125 plus two 250s, if he wins the motogp title this year he'll have equal number of WORLD TITLES as jorge.

But Tets

You bearded, trikey riding tit, if the 2013 M1 is worse than the 2012 M1, but the equal of the HRC, yet is turning into a Ducati, that means the HRC is, as it stands, worse than last year and closer to the Ducati. 

And further, Jorge is on the latest 2013 M1 chassis, developed for him, which Rossi rejected. So how can Jorge develop it in to a Ducati when he hasn't ridden one, and yet Rossi reject it presumably because it wasn't Ducati enough for him?

Lorenzo's worse finish in 5 years but given what happened its good for him he actually finished in the points rather then falling off and finishing with 0 points.

Lorenzo has a poor race and still he gets praise for not falling off. Had Valentino slumped back to 7th like that, you'd all be on his back immediately about how it's time to finish and he's an overrated and shit. Yes Lorenzo may have had some problems... but I have never seen such a good rider fall so far off the pace like that, especially Lorenzo. He should retire, it seems to be the best bit of advice you people can give to someone he has a few bad races.

You are right, the Rossi haters are really a fickle bunch. Why aren't they calling for Lorenzo to retire, afterall he has been deeply affected by the MM incident and is completely washed up. surely his ride should be going to a more deserving rider......say somebody like Bradly Smith!!!!!.
