Yamaha: No pressure on Jorge Lorenzo to race in Laguna Seca

Injury ravaged reigning world champion Jorge Lorenzo did not decide to make a surprise return to MotoGP action in Laguna Seca because he was under pressure from Yamaha to remain in the 2013 title race.Lorenzo initially had ruled himself out of the California clash after he suffered a massive high-side crash in practice for the recent Sachsenring round in Germany.The...

Oh really?

Yamaha to Jorge:

 

Totally your decision, but do you really want to get beaten to the championship by a kid who's barely old enough to shave?

hmmmmm

Maybe colin's team america with nicky might be a real possibility. Was reading on gp one jarvis saying that yamaha would allow team forward to pick their own riders, and that he had no problem if colin was one of them...hint hint. Yamaha is going to provide the team with engines, frames and swingarms. Plus they will have 24 sweet litres of fuel, and access to the sweet" extra soft " CRT tire. So basically they have a tech 3 bike...they will have to buy their own ohlins/brembos...i think tech 3 has to do that too...not positive but remember cal being bitter because dovi had the "new" brakes and team couldnt afford them for him. Id love to see nicky ride the yamaha. He deserves to feel what a good bike is like since 2005( 2006 he was forced to be test rider for 07 bike). 24 litres of fuel for a smoother ride, with a proper bike,albeit control ecu, with better tires...it will definitely be better than a factory ducati, thats for sure. Im also VERY curious to see if more fuel would allow the ducapi to run smoother,therefore less aggressive tire shredding power delivery, which would then push the front less so that it would turn, and also still have grip left at the end of the race. If it makes it better, maybe they will stop this foolishness of less and less fuel, in favour of a packed grid of competitive bikes....with all 5 manufacturers again...Suzuki would be ready next year if it wasnt for fuel efficiency problems....Give them gas I say! For want of a nail, and all that.

Has to race and to be fair is going very well. His 3 or 4 laps at the end of first practice on the harder tyre were right up there.. Either going to fade badly or another one of his acting worse than it is episodes followed by a great result.. Either way it's a hard track to ride injured... Marquez could be along way in front by the end of the weekend and Rossi breathing down Jorge's neck and clearly getting quicker every weekend. Few folk would look forward to that lot..

I've not really seen any evidence of Rossi breathing down Jorges neck, not while Lorenzo is recovering from an injury. Unless you mean in the championship standings at the end of the race?

Doubtful Tom

Excerpt from your latest inane posting, ' you sound like a drooling moron'.

Self appraisal?

And the language.

Behave yourself!

Hugelean: What I mean is, until I see them both uninjured against each other I'll reserve judgement. Obviously Jorge has been the better rider this year (well apart from falling off), lets see how the rest of it pans out.
