If he couldn't get with Yamaha he would hold out for big bucks to bring his name and sponsors to whoever would pay the best. I think he'd retire before taking rookie money. I haven't seen anything vaguely authoritative claiming Suzuki even made him an offer.

I wholly agree....and that is why want to see JLo on the Honda...and like i said on another post...we wont see JLo win another title for at least 3 years if ever again...MM wont let him get the upper hand at HRC in any way....

Dude, why the hurry to write him off, he`s not even throw a leg over the bike yet? I totaly agree that apparently he`s not a right fit for Honda, but this was the consesus for the Ducati too, and now he has a win on the red bike.

I say we wait for the Valencia test, and then we`ll see.

Or are you affraid that he will win on a Honda too ?

I am not afraid that JLo will win on the Honda....I think he will win a couple races a year, but he will not win another title while he is MMs teammate and MM stays healthy....

The premise of JLo winning any races on the Honda assume he can get the thing to turn and flow through corners.....not a current honda trait....

Also, if you believe Cal the Honda is much more physical to ride....it will clearly physical challenge for him like the Ducati has been until JLo go the new gas tank.....

The biggest question of course....is how much will Honda listen to what JLo needs vs what MM needs to win yet another title....?

JLos role at HRC is to be Dani's replacement, a fast humble quiet number 2...and when Mapping 8 comes up on his Honda dashboard he will have mentally bow to MM and obey....

That is JLos future at HRC....in my opinion....

Didnt take long for the boppets to start dissing Jorge.

I expect Jorge to be able to ride the Honda well enough to be the contemporary bopper/rossi enemy no.2.

They cant help it ..... the hate has already started

100% If ever there was a factory team that had a top dog it has been Repsol over the last 5 years.
That's not to hate on Horhay though. But it is well documented that not being treated as the number 1 guy in a team has been a big part in his decision making process.

Which means less pressure for the dollars ........

He has been under intense scrutiny and pressure since joining Ducati amd whilst there will be some when he goes to HRC, the manufacturer and team pressure will be on Marquez moreso than Lorenzo, where at Ducati it was his pressure as Dovi went quietly about things.

Sure, may be a challenge but it may also be a better environment, as afterall, they came knocking with decent dollars which says something
