Valentino Rossi: Extra motivation and pressure after Lorenzo crash

Valentino Rossi admitted that Jorge Lorenzo’s Dutch injury disaster has give him more motivation but extra pressure to try and battle with factory Honda duo Dani Pedrosa and Marc Marquez in Assen.

What Yamaha would like

is for Crutchlow and Rossi to take points off the Honda's to limit the damage on Jorge's title chance.   It will take a wet race for any chance of that happening.   If it's dry Honda 1, 2, without question.

Wet or dry

Rossi hasn't a cat in hells chance of stopping Dani and MM.Yammy needs buckets full of rain tomorrow and pre race warm up and then a dry track for the race, then maybe Cal can get amongst the Hondas.

Yada Yada

What Yamaha would like. What I would like is for it to bucket down with rain mid race and for a Ducati or Art rider to capitilize and win.

I wouldn't disagree

with that sentiment Boots - I remember a few years back when Guintoli took a Kawasaki into the lead in a pissing wet race (can't remember year or track) he crashed while leading but it created a bit of extra interest.

Can't see that happening on Saturday as the 3 Amigos plus 2 are all pretty handy in the wet.  I still say Honda 1 and 2 for the race.

If Yamaha want points

Give Cal Jorges goody bag ,It would be for all the right reasons and be a good opportunity for Cal to show Yamaha the error of their ways,Get well soon Jorge, I had him down for a certain win on saturday ,I have nothing against Dani edging towards his first title but I want him and Jorge tooth and nail in every race ,Yamaha need Cal and the off colour Doctor on top form this weekend ,time for Lin to hand over the toys

Cal has taken a few years to get the Tech3 M1 to his liking, there is no way he will just jump on JL M1 and do any good, in that short space of time.

Unless a complete miracle happens, Rossi will not be winning on Saturday, even though he has thee bike to do it on.

Stig - hate to sound like Benny...

...but Dovi going to Ducati is making Cal appear to be better than he actually is. Dovi would still be handing him his @ss on a fortnightly basis if he hadn't took the fat paycheck and flushed away the next two years of his career riding the shit-pig.

I doubt that

Crutchlow's results would improve if he was given Jorge's bike.
