khp Posted November 8, 2015 Report Share Posted November 8, 2015 I guess the most exciting thing about this race was Rossi' charge up through the field the first 12 laps. From then on, he maintained his position as 4th, but went backwards compared to Pedrosa, Marquez, and Lorenzo. Lorenzo did what he had to do - win the race and rode a great race. So did Marc and Dani. Rossi's comments after the race was just downright disgraceful; that Dani & Marc was "protecting" Jorge so he could win the championship. This is the Dark ("Moon") Side of Rossi showing: when he's close to winning but quite can't win, he gets pissed off and sees conspiracies against him winning. Rossi didn't like Lorenzo winning over him last time they rode in the Yamaha Factory team, and he doesn't like it now. Unfortunately, (IMHO), he's acting like a spoiled brat who is entitled to win the championships. The hard data says that Rossi just isn't fast enough to beat Marc & Jorge (and likely Dani too). Rossi did very consistent 1:32.1-.2 laps for most of the race, with two laps under the 1:32 mark: Laps 3 & 4 where he did 1:31.997 and 1:31:820. Lorenzo? He did 1:31.7-31.8 laps until lap 20, when he dropped "down" to 1:32.0-3. Lorenzo's slowest lap (not counting the opening lap) was the final lap of 1.32:331. The spectator's booing of the podium was also a disgrace - motorcycling gone footballing. Im my opinion, we got the right champion this year: the fastest guy. Jorge Lorenzo. Congrats to you Jorge.
