Since the Lorenzo move to Ducati is Official does this mean
1) Lorenzo will have a Ben Spies Vodoo season in 2016?
2) Will motogp ban the winglests on the Ducati from 2017?

Just curious

Why the hell Lorenzo should have chosen Suzuki? That's an asshat comment.

I don't/can't read the comments on most post on Crash or MotoGP. The level of asinine idiocy that is posted in most comment sections today is mind numbing..

Crash is a cesspool for the boppers.

I like Lorenzo's decision. I also hope Marquez doesn't spend his entire career at HRC. Take some risks and experience different bikes.

I would say this means Iannone is gone because I think Dovi is more valuable as a bike developer, and unless Jorge absolutely can't ride the thing which is what both he and Ducati have bet against they now have a faster rider than Crazy Joe, and as was speculated previously probably explains his desperation when he took out Dovi.

Will his support of the Rossi version of events at PI 2015 be rewarded by a Yamaha factory ride despite Vinales supposedly having been anointed, or has it by a chain of events actually cost him the closest thing he will ever have to a competitive factory ride?

to be honest im glad, it gets Jorge away from the hoards of Valiban waiting outside the yamaha garage and Hospitality area, and will be better for us fans , im sure, As long as Jorge can get on with it !!

I hate this shite that you need to "win on different manufacturers" to be considered a great.

So by that reckoning Doohan, Rainey and Roberts aren't greats either in the eyes of numpties, fucking hell, even Hailwoods 4 500cc championships came on just one bike, the MV and he's generally regarded by those who know a lot more about motorcycle racing than I do as the undisputed best ever.
