HRC talking to Lorenzo about the 2nd seat.


Honda has to make run a George. George put himself in a place where he is only going to get 50 percent of his last contract, (at most). Getting a rider of his talent for .50 on the dollar is a brilliant business move.

Suzuki should have done the same...

Duc was put in a tough place. They had to pay Divo, so probably knew they would lose George.

It's a difficult decision as to whether Horhay would do better on the Honda or the Yam'.
The Honda does seem to be a better bike than it was the last couple of years, but, as has been said, is quite physical.
Past performance would insinuate that the Yamaha is a better fit for Horhay, however there is no getting away from the fact that over the last 2 years it has, when combined with the tyre packages, become a bit of a different animal.

The fact is no one knows for 100% as to how he would go on either bike.

As I said before, the Honda is a hard braking, hard accelerating bike. Itís not meant to sweep through corners and they are not going to make it sweep through corners because Marky Marc donít ride that way. And J.Lo doesnít point and shoot.

The 2015/16 Yamaha was a very different thing from today's one. Vinales would probably pay $100mln to be able to go back to 2016 to refuse signing his Yamaha contract....

I may be annoyingly repetitive but I think Jorge should stay on the Duc. Which he won't do
He knows the company and believes he can do at least as good as Rossi if not better, which is a damned site better than what he's doing on the Bologna Bike.

Agree with others, he would be altogether at sea on the HRC.

With that being said, I think Dani would be really strong on the Yamaha. It would surely suit his style - he was always best on the cornerspeed 125s and 250s.

That makes sense. So Yamaha it is then.
