Dovi chokes again

So dovi is in the mix (not that he would have won the title anyway) MM passes him and dovi has to follow and try to pass. in extream situations (needing to win) dovi crashes out of the race. This happened last year too at valencia. needed to win and he crashed out. the man just isnt championship material. doesnt have "IT" Sorry i like the guy and all but he will never win anything.
Thanks from MrSolo

Better to go for it and crash rather than just ride around mid pack and do nothing. If I was a team owner it’s what I would want my riders to do, given thst the GP18 can win races. If he was on the crappy Aprilia and KTM machines, then ok...ride around and have fun. MM is a great champ for sure but I can’t stand him.

Undeniably, MM manages riding at and over 100% the best and luckiest.

Entering the turn a tad too hot, reduced stability and the front washes away. Same happened to JLo in misano.
Soft front has more sidewall flex too. Dunno which one dovi chose.

Dovi fought like a true warrior! They all do - piloting around on 220 mph missiles on a pack of cards width contract patch. Everytime Dovi loses, he learns a little something. Maybe one day he learns how to beat Marc week in and week out to take the trophy home.

Well he HAD to win to hold Marc up till next weekend. It was win or bin. He was never going to beat Marc to the title this year anyway, Marc has been way to consistent.

learning the limit means tossing it sometimes, that's why brought up luck earlier. MM leaned to extend the non-crash skill, plus mostly he uses FP4 to push ... pretty smart.

looking at JLo's statements of what he has been able to do in terms of pushing it hasn't been until middle of this season, where they only needed to do incremental adjustments to the bike to allow the rider to push (within a certain risk). before there were too many things going on, which they needed to understand and counteract before pushing close to the 100%.

MM has the advantage ehre with honda, long history, tight knit team and a big corp behind it with lots of data and smart people to address topics.

easy to ride bike (fast and forgiving) allows the rider to expose great skill.
the duc has been an untamed beast until not too long ago.

if i compare that to my recent experiences, running a quick lap at Barber is a piece of work on the 1199, doing that easily on a S1000RR almost feels like cheating. and i'm just a noob...
Thanks from The Avidmoto

Dovi was on a soft front . More to do with bad choice more than choking .

Ducati made a big mistake letting Lorenzo go to Honda as he was there best chance of winning another world title. Dovi will never win a moto gp world title
I would love to see MM on the Ducati

As long as it does not rain . I feel Dovi is underrated but next year will tell I think he will have one last shot at it .
