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...

I saw you on the BBC coverage being carried by your owner to join all the other 46'ers. Nice little hat and bib, you're quite a little fellow really aren't you, nothing like your picture. Explains a lot really.

Facts is facts..Rossi had the pace and would have been on for a podium if not for your namesake, Batty Boy Buttista.

I think that

either Bautista is a total nutter, or was not in complete control of his bike as someone said on the other thread; both may apply of course. Rossi was ahead of him on the track with the line into the following corner, regardless of any comment as to how he had  negotiated the previous corner was not in a position to see what Bautista was doing, had nowhere to go other than where he was headed which should have been apparent/visible to Bautista,  and on the line Bautista ended up taking the result was never going to be other than what transpired.

Bautista also has a history of taking out faster riders with unfeasible moves, in traffic, in the first few corners of races.

Game of Facts

" Facts is facts..Rossi had the pace and would have been on for a podium"

He only finished one session in the top three.  That's a fact.  Finished a session as 19th fastest.  Also a fact.  Made a rubbish start.  Fact.  Rode across the racing line to smash into Alvaro.  Fact.  Shares special hugs with Uccio?  Probably.

Wouldn't be surprised if he threw it into Bautista on purpose once he realised he'd be bringing it home behind the Ducatis.

He had the pace for a podium at his best track?  Piss-stained fantasy.

You don't think Rossi altered his line also and turned back into the track? - evident from the overhead shot where he jinks left. Bautista didn't deliberately carve across a fixed line Rossi was taking.

Seemed to me just an unfortunate accident, neither to blame. None of us knows how much either rider could actually see of the other, if anything.

Wosi - you should know by now that practise times often have little in common with what happens during a race. You extrapolating practise times on here does not mean that would have been the outcome in the race.

9 podium positions yesterday. 6 taken by Spanish riders,  2 by English, 1 by a French geezer.

Its about time Dorna stopped this domination by Spanish and English riders!

The TV experts, Ben Spies in interview, most in the paddock, most on here, Race direction, Alvaro Bautista and Valentino Rossi all seem to put this down to a racing incident, but still there are some experts on here who know better. Morons!

I think Dorna are doing their best to lose at least one English rider bud. If they had any sense they'd 'make sure' Cal moved to the factory Yamaha garage next season.

That won't sit well with many (including the t-shirt sellers) but it would make for a great 2014..........imo.

I am prepared to accept BB

that both  may have come out of the previous corner a little hot. As I said though, where else was Rossi going to go (?off the track ? slow down and get hit by the other riders behind him) and it would seem unlikely he could have seen Bautista as he was ahead of him but likely that he would have been in Bautista's view. I am aware this happens very quickly and they have to make lightning fast decisions but Bautista has a history of making wrong ones in the first few corners of races. Spies commentating live on first seeing the overhead shot said "that was Alvaro". The question is whether it was volitional or whether the bike was not entirely in his control.

Agree and have already said myself that qualifying higher obviates tangling with the likes of Bautista.

Can somebody explain this whole 'Orange' thing. Jurgen van den Goorbergh was the last Dutch rider of any note so I assume you don't mean him. The only thing I can think of is the Repsol colour scheme. As far as I remember we have had 5 'Orange'  world champions. Doohan (4) Criville (1) Rossi (3) Hayden (1) and Stoner (1) so who are you refering to?
