Mugello MotoGP: Lorenzo eases to victory

Reigning champion Jorge Lornzo eased to victory in Mugello today to record his second win in a row. Pole sitter Dani Pedrosa got off to a good start, but a hard move from Lorenzo at the first corner sat him up and Lorenzo then led to the flag. Marquez got a good start to settle in to third place behind his team-mate...

Great, faultless ride by Lorenzo, crutchlow did great too. Not the most exciting race ever.... Shame for Marquez as he had the pace and deserved second but you have to get it home...I was deflated by rossi's crash, and a big shame for the Italians as it was his home race...looked painful hitting that fence so glad both riders are uninjured! Looking at the many replays from what I saw Rossi had got in front slightly of Bautista in the prev corner and bau turned hard into him.... Seems how spies saw it too, watching his opinion on bbc, although it was if course just a racing incident. Rossi had a crap start and was trying to make up 4 it..a shame for both riders either way. Come on how can a penalty be given for either rider after the Marquez move on Lorenzo?? Shame u r back moto, I can't believe u r older than 12!! Save all that toilet talk for your mate on the playground....

Question

How can the Yamaha finish 5 seconds ahead when it's 0.5 seconds a lap slower than a Honda?

Bautista / Rossi - nasty crash and luckily, somehow, both unhurt, Rossi especially who bounced out of the bales like a rag doll. Blame seems to be with Bautista because he has 'form' but it's harsh to blame him. He was drifting out, Rossi already wide and cutting back to his left, both converging on the same bit of track and met. Just one of those things that happens occassionally, not really any one to blame.

Well done to JL...

JL redresses the balance - 2 wins a piece for MM, DP & JL... the Yamaha's not such a bad old bus after all. Bad news for Yamaha that they've only got one rider winning on it at the moment, though with Cal's help they're only 9 points behind in the constructor's championship.

The collision... one rider takes the space another was commited to using... acceptable on a last lap & commonplace on a 1st... racing incident but one you'd have thought Rossi would have had the experience to avoid. I guess he'd had such a bad start (Alvaro was 2 places behind him on the grid, & we've come to expect better starts from Rossi) that he considered the extra risk acceptable. Bad qualifying has taken it's toll on him yet again & has been the cause of his lowest points tally, after 6 races, since his rookie year in 125's, when he had 1 point less.

Well done Cal... the start beat him again. His qualifying could have been better without that crash but that's racing... his time will come.

Dumbest post award...

Goes to motoking.

No brainer realy (pardon the pun).

Floats like a bee and stings like a butterfly. Best to let those who have proven lack of, well anything, to sob in the corner.

This is one spoon that is not worth sharpening...

Rossi

Lot of talk on here about him having the race pace. He never had it in practice (maybe in FP1) and he only raced for 3 corners !!! Great ride JL as for MM what a weekend and well done Cal.

No Rossi

No Rossi no excitement, expectation, glamour. With him?  A shed load of stupendous saddos being jealous of his charisma, most posting on here boringly from week to week.

Race pace and gobshite..

FP1 aside, which was damp, Rossi had been consistently faster than Pedrosa in practice. Dani clocked Eleven laps in the 48's FP2-4, Rossi had Nineteen.

Pedrosa's early race pace was low 48's and he was able to track Jorge until the RCV's tyres started to go away. At the same time the M1 benefitted from a lightening fuel load. This was the double whammy reason Lorenzo stormed away from the Repsol bikes from half race distance, as Dani's times drpped off a cliff into the 49's.  

The Yamaha seems to manage tyre wear better at flowing circuits and improves as the fuel tank empties, altering it's weight distribution.

This was illustrated by how quickly Cal caught Dani towards the end.

Given that Rossi had been consistently faster than Cal in practice too..it's probable he could have fought for a podium spot.

I appreciate this didn't happen and is speculation..but it has more basis in fact than trolling fuckos like Huskyprick stating Rossi didn't have any sort of race pace at all.

Not sure...

"it's probable he could have fought for a podium spot."

Unfortunately, with such a horrendous start, he would have had to have overtaken 5 riders (2 of whom were faster than him over a lap) before even attempting to catch up with Cal, anyone of whom could have wiped him out in his haste to get nearer the front. Without MM crashing not even Cal was really up for a podium.
