Attitude yes. Dominant form no, again it is only a track where the Yamaha have always done well vs the Honda, the other one would be Assen but Lorenzo is not at his best there, and Silverstone.
So let's see what happens next on tracks not so favourable to the M1s.
What matter is the fact that Yamaha was unable to win this W-E while Honda did show some improvement compared to last years in terms of corner speed.
Now Rossi was obviously handicapped by his position on the grid, the M1 still isn't as soft on tyres as the RC, he had to push more than he probably would have had he started from 2nd row to stay with them, and he was doing his race alone, which is harder btw, if you had tried it once.
Now in view of this race i don't think Marquez has much worry to have from either but on different tracks than these i'm curious to know how Lorenzo will be beating Rossi regularly, considering the circumstances of today's race.
Now let's the man himself say i6t as it was:
“The practice and the weekend were a little difficult,” he admitted
afterwards. “I think I had a chance to fight with them, but we gave that
away yesterday in qualifying. From the fourth row it is very hard to
win. We had a problem in Warm Up so we couldn’t try a new setting. I was
very lucky in the beginning and could overtake many riders who used the
slip stream yesterday in qualifying. It is good to be back on the
podium in Mugello, it is very special.”
