It'd be sad if JL constantly finishes ahead of AD for the remainder of the season. Claudio's gonna be tearing his hair out.

I think it's pretty cool for the only 2 guys to win the championship since 2012 share a garage.
Just curious why you think it's sweet? Are u trying to suggest they are gay or something cause your boy couldn't win a race and are still bitter over 15? I don't see Jorge and marquez with tattoo of each other on their arms like a certain fat hanger on who happened to make up the 2015 story. I think it's pretty sweet that 2 grown men have a 46 tattoo in the same garage.

i think it's Jlow lost if he doesn't want to stay with Ducati another yr. If he's finally figuring out how to ride the Duc and make it to work for him and have a chance to put him self on the podium then why would you want to move on. it would be his benefit to stay another yr and be a front runner for the championship contender instead of learning to ride new bike all over again. Never like the guy anyway even when he was with Yamaha

For Lorenzo it comes down to who he thinks is going to give him the best chance at winning the title. He left Yamaha because he felt he was being treated like he wa the second string rider behind Rossi even though he’d proven he was better on so many occasions. He want to Ducati with the expectation that he’d be treated better and found that not to be the case. Based on his comments he seemed dissatisfied at the pace new parts were arriving. At Honda he has probably the strongest factory behind him. I suspect going in he doesn’t expect to be number one against Marquez.i suspect he expects to be listened to more with regards to his needs.

Regardless, given that Lorenzo’s choice was to A) stay at Ducati , B) go to a completely unknown team and ride a bike that is clearly struggling or C) go to a satellite team, WSBK or retire. I don’t think taking 4million euro a year to ride the Honda was a bad choice.

Lorenzo isn't going to get much more support at Honda. Both Dani and Cal were pretty opposed to the direction Honda was going, which was obviously to suit whatever Marc felt made him faster.

I don't really have a favorite rider, not since Casey left, but I really like Lorenzo so I hope he does well. Should be a really interesting season next year.

Great point, never actually thought of it from Jorge's perspective.
I would've loved for him to stick with the Duc, imo it made him a better rider as his ego took a massive hit and he learnt some humility out of it. I think he might gel with the Honda fine especially after coming from a Ducati, all the best to him.
I guess the last high profile rider left is Dani. Suzuki would be great for him imo.

Any bets on if they build a wall to separate the two teams in the garage, like what happened when he and Vale were at Yamaha together.....

I was reading an article by Carlo Pernot, it was his recap of the Mugello GP. He speculated two things: Lorenzo won because he knew he already had the Yamaha ride and could ride relaxed and that Marquez crashed because he pushed too hard trying to silence the booing. This signing sort of changes the picture a bit. I think Lorenzo won because he always wants to win, but he may have also wanted to remind his new teammate how fast he really is. Marquez obviously knew Lorenzo would be his teammate next year. Perhaps Marquez crashed because he was trying to send a message to Lorenzo as to who the top dog is.
