Lorenzo happy to be the team mate and help ....... if needed

Lorenzo drops that he is happy to ride for the team and help Dovi's title chances if needed.

Jorge Lorenzo says he is prepared to help Ducati team-mate Andrea Dovizioso's MotoGP title chances before the end of the season, but he feels the time has not come yet.

Dovizioso leads the standings with six races to go following his fourth win of the season at Silverstone, with Honda's Marc Marquez and Yamaha's Maverick Vinales his main challengers following Valentino Rossi suffering a broken leg last week in a motocross accident.

Riders' standings

POS RIDER POINTS
1 Andrea Dovizioso 183
2 Marc Marquez 174
3 Maverick Vinales 170
4 Valentino Rossi 157
5 Dani Pedrosa 148
6 Johann Zarco 109
7 Jorge Lorenzo 90
8 Cal Crutchlow 89
Dovizioso said at Silverstone that he does not agree with team orders being used in MotoGP, but Lorenzo says he is willing to help later in the year if required.

"At the moment, we haven't spoken with the team about helping Dovi," said Lorenzo.

"But it will be the time to do it at the end of the season if he remains in this position.

"In this moment there are many races to go and I keep progressing.

"If I can fight for the victory, I will try to do it."



Marquez, who trails Dovizioso by nine points after retiring from the last race with a rare Honda engine failure, believes Ducati should be considered a threat on every type of circuit now.

"The argument that the Ducati doesn't easily adapt to some tracks doesn't exist anymore," said Marquez.

"Dovi will fight for podium positions in each grand prix. He is managing the situation properly.

"I considered him as one of my main rivals before Silverstone because I noticed how he rode in Austria [defeating Marquez on the final lap].

"Maybe he hasn't fought for a MotoGP title until this year, but he did it in smaller categories and had to get through many different situations."

Another legacy of Stoners guidance.

Dont remember any of Stoners teamates ever being at odds with him ( unlike rossi ) so I guess he has pushed this point with his proteges.

No sense designing and building a good gp bike only to have a bitchy rider.

You do know Petrucci had been coaching JLo all this season right? It seem the original teacher kept calling in sick.

So cheating on the partner? nah I can't see Petrux cheating on her, so where do the pluralities of babies come from, or are you just wanting to stir it a bit?
