Jorge Lorenzo not surprised by lack of Honda interest

Jorge Lorenzo says he was not shocked to have been completely overlooked by Honda for a spot next to dominant reigning world champion Marc Marquez in 2015. HRC boss Shuhei Nakamoto had vowed to approach the Spaniard during winter testing after a failed attempt to lure Lorenzo away from Yamaha back in 2012. But after recently re-signing long-serving HRC rider Dani Pedrosa...

Doesn't suprise me either

Why would HRC want to upset the apple cart and cause unneccessary tension in the team by employing him?

Apparently MM and DP get on really well and have a good relationship and DP is a good wing man for HRC. Whether that would still be the case if DP ever puts MM under pressure remains to be seen.

And....

His early season showing probably didn't help his case either.

We all know

the reason HRC didn't want Lorenzo. It's because he can't slide a bike. Duh!

Exactly what state is the sport in? The show has been great this season, Ducati are slowly but surely bridging the gap to Honda and Yamaha. Suzuki and Aprilia are back next season. Young riders in the lower classes are coming on strong.

Carmelo will be the first to admit he has made mistakes over the years, but our sport is heading in the right direction. Spec ECU's and tyre changes over the next couple of years should hike up the unpredictability and further improve the show.

If you don't like it mate, go watch BSB and try telling yourself those guys could cut it in GPs

 If you think we are in some halcyon days of moto gp you clearly never saw the days of 500cc racing and full grids where there were 40 machines on  the grid and there were far more than a maximum of four riders that could win,It was also not dictated by the governing body and a manufacturer ,it is currently a money orientated too expensive to compete in and as is the case now even to expensive for the circuits to take on,ie the debacle of the next years event in GB ,TV ,the Circuits ,the riders the machinery all too political and dictatorial and you think its going to get better ?,yeah just like F1 is ,WSBK is dead on its legs as well rant over

Hahahaha .....

... a simple, dim pig rants - wouldn't be the first time.

 

Look pig-boy, you're stuck in a delusional time-warp if you think the 'old' days were better - or cheaper.

 

In 2014, Keifer Racing (the ones who ran Bradl in Moto2) says it costs 800,000 euro to compete. So compare that to the £1.5 million that Aprilia charged to lease a non-factory spec bike 5 years ago.

 

Then again, as a tyre-wars idiot - weigh-up the cost of spending £50,000 per race (like Roberts).

 

This is MotoGP pig. It's not some fantasy 'I once had the ear of Sheene' sh!t. It's reality after the fag money's gone. Get a grip or get out.

 

Bitter, old, ignorant, ba*tard.

Hey ...

... don't be too hard on the pig - he's just an old, bitter, idiot who can't understand.

 

What's pig's beef with CoW?

Oink!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

... open your slit eyes pig-boy - the budget of a British National Championship F3 team far exceeds that required to run a pair of RC213V's in MotoGP.

 

You're just an old, regressive idiot with badges in his flop-top hat.

 

You're scared of progress - that's why you oppose the Circuit of Wales.
