Lorenzo's tech admits rossi handled spin better (again, not trolling...)

I read this quote this morning on motogp.com, and I'm wondering what you all honestly think:

"Even Lorenzo’s crew chief Ramon Forcada admitted that after checking data, Rossi had handled the wheelspin issues better. The spinning issues were so severe that a few riders felt like they were riding in the wet. They’d all had to moderate throttle opening on the straight to get drive, and it was MotoGP’s shrewdest operator that prevailed over its smoothest."

I'm hoping for some interesting opinions here, although I'm anxiously awaiting a seething and vicious commentary by JPS.

A softer suspension set up bike would consume lesser tires than a hard suspension set up?

I dare say it is because he had experience riding the older bikes that didn't have the electronics to compensate for tire wear. I'm not saying no one else is capable, but no one else on the grid currently rode the early 4 strokes.

I definitely agree with you on that point. I do feel that some people will say his experience on 4 strokes is unfair and thus his win so be eradicated.

Like I say. I'd quite like Rossi to win this to level things out.
Really wasn't hard to see this coming based upon the simple understanding that Rossi thrives and is often indomitable in these conditions. Precisely why he laments the era that preceded the advent of electronics.

Arrab, I wasn't referring to you when I said I bet some naysayers will pop in on this thread.

Would you not agree that the era without electronics was perhaps more exciting?

P.S. I have a sinking feeling that Rossi will not show many more performances like Jerez this year.

I only said that as I feel this forum has some members whose only purpose in life is to belittle everything #46 has achieved in his career, if people don't like him, fine, but don't make up stuff that is not true to justify a position.

Not trolling, but, Rossi killing JLo Sunday pretty much told us that.
