Bridgestone: No fault with Jorge Lorenzo’s Le Mans tyre

Bridgestone has confirmed that a thorough examination of the rear rain tyre used by reigning world champion Jorge Lorenzo in Sunday’s French MotoGP race showed up no defect. Lorenzo suffered a nightmare in a rain-hit Le Mans encounter when he slumped from second to seventh and the Spaniard blamed a chronic lack of rear grip for his worst result since his...

The Honda's good but ...

... the top speeds were set by Yamaha's and Le Mans is recognised to be a Yamaha track - Lorenzo won by a country mile last year and even Crutchlow managed to finish second this year on the same 2012 frame but with the more powerful 2013 motor. 


Face it - the two Repsol riders are simply leagues ahead of any Yamaha rider on the grid. 

This current Yamaha quartet is recognised as being the weakest line-up that they've fielded in recent years. 

There's no Dovi weighing-in with 6 podiums - Crutchlow/Rossi will struggle to get more than 6 podiums between them all year. 

It's all on Lorenzo's shoulders and he's cracking under the strain.

Yamaha need to sort out their priority Cal with a factory bike or Rossi because he sells a lot of tee shirts.

I'll enlighten you slow learners - he's still with the no mistakes, no crashes BS, he's got that boresome attitude since last season, can't shake it off it seems. Plus the bike is not the best bike for quite some time. Honda messed something up at Quatar.

Dovi

If Yamaha thought he was that good why did Rossi get a two year deal if they thought it would put more strain on their world champion then eh??? Stupid u sound again and glory supporting the winner just like last season,dovi cashed in with Ducati an wont do much on it unless it raining as him an Valentino have proved it goes better in the wet, but wet riding shows more balls as we with brains no, sheep failure once again. The Yamaha is not the fastest package out there. Cals ride is not a patch on the factory bikes Honda and factory m1's proved that in Qatar. Again u failed to change any results or stats with ur sheep shi@e. Jog on little boy.

Benny nails it

''Face it - the two Repsol riders are simply leagues ahead of any Yamaha rider on the grid.''

The current grid summed up in one sentence.

 Dani is the form rider from the back end of last season and MM is phenomenal.

It's going to be an epic battle between these two imo and JL won't be able to 'ride for points' as he so often has in the past.

Glad to see you've stopped shouting softlad.

Dani has won bollock all in 8 years. Marquez is a fkin rookie.

Put Lorenzo, Rossi or Cal on an RCV..and they'd piss all over them.

Fk Honda..

With this superior Repsol setup, there is no so called 'Yamaha track' any more, pure and simple.

Hondas only advantage over Yamaha is their contracted riders bud. End of.

As for 'wosi' and his latest rant............''Put Lorenzo, Rossi or Cal on an RCV..and they'd piss all over them.''  As the song goes, '2 outta 3 'aint bad' ;)

Stop acting like a spoilt fucking brat. Rossi has a fantastic record but is now a spent force as he's shown for over two years. Stop kidding yourself and others that he's still in the frame 'cos he 'aint mate. Time waits for no man. 

(Lawson is still God for the record ;))
