Unless they are women
they been talking about flopsis age since 32. now danny is 32 so is dovi and a few others yet you hear nothing about their age. age isnt a huge factor in motorsports anyway.

It really is a crap deal. He isn't performing on the Duc because of his 250GP-high-corner-speed-style yet he has legitimately tried to adapt. Ducati bears some blame in this too. It's not like he forgot how to ride a motorcycle. A 3 time MotoGP champion with his last championship coming in 2015 deserves more.
Thanks from mark419ny and Thamer

I can't see Jorge riding a Honda. Dani is probably safe for one or two more years.

I get it: Lorenzo is prickly but so were King Kenny, Sheene, Spencer, Biaggi. He just needs a good result for confidence.

All of the world's problems can be traced back to Rossi lol.

I can hardly imagine any reason why HRC would be interested in Lorenzo.

Pedro is the perfect teammate to Marquez. They've got a long list of young candidates to take Pedro's seat when they need to start thinking beyond Marquez, but right now, they don't.

HRC is the favorite to win the championship through 2020. It ain't broke, I doubt they will try fixing it.


If I were Lorenzo, I would negotiate a new performance based contract with Ducati with a low base. At least he will remain on a factory team and give himself more time to learn and adapt. Problem is, it sounds like Ducati and company aren't too keen on keeping him around, and they need to consider the risk of losing their young talent in Miller and Petrux.

JLo isn't going to leave MotoGP, but IMO, he's either on the Ducati or on a satellite Yamaha next year.

The suzuki seemed to be the logical option given that it appears to have corner speed and would be ideally suited to Lorenzo's riding style but it looks like that door is shut.
Expect the pieces to fall in place over the next few rounds... should be interesting, at least more interesting than the races which are pretty much a foregone conclusion at the moment.

A fixed satellite Yamaha could be very interesting!
