HRC talking to Lorenzo about the 2nd seat.
While Jorge's win may prove to be a one-off as far as winning on Ducati, it does show he still retains his mojo and with mojo in place he is one of the few riders who can match MM for outright pace, albeit not in all conditions on all tires.

He might be some threat to MM on a sorted Yamaha, hence the typical Honda move would be to sign him to deny Yamaha his services.

Is it an HRC decision or Jorge? Who's waiting for whom in this game?

As has been said, this is all gossip. We have already had rumors of Jack Miller knocking back the HRC seat (he would be certifiably insane if he did so and has denied same) and MM vetoing Jorge.

I was just saying that signing Jorge would be a very Honda thing to do.

as per your point on Jorge and Honda I fully agree.
well if you heard the interview with jack miller last week, he commented that the Honda required a lot more physical force to ride then the Ducati, and that he was tearing muscles in his arms while riding the Honda. Rabat made similar comments earlier in the season.

He seemed to be replying to me as far as I could tell.

Of course. I think that Honda&MM may not have a problem signing Jorge (Honda more than MM), so it could indicate that it's up to JL now.

Pedro's career must be judged against the backdrop of being on a winning package over his career where 3 of his teammates won the title during his tenure.

During his Svengali Puig era, Pedro participated in Honda's gutless, shameless, and ultimately failed attempt to engineer a Manchurian rider. However, in the latter years of Pedro's career he seemed to change his perspective.
