Lin Jarvis is an idiot. This is a guy who let Uccio take over the garage at Argentina and hid on the side like he wasn't even team principal. He has no long range thinking ability to consider the ramifications of what he does. When Yamaha Japan had to step in over that, it tells you how much weight he really carries in that team.

I'm not as well versed on the bikes as many on this forum are but is the Honda an easier bike to ride?

I like Marquez but would he genuinely welcome a credible opponent in Lorenzo if the bike is easy to work with? Pedrosa was a nice guy but he wasn't the kind of threat that a pumped up Jorge would be.

Do you think Honda are wanting a balance between exciting crazy man with an impressive talent and a consistent, metronomic 'safer' man with an impressive talent?

The Honda can turn, something the Ducati does not do well. Also the Honda does not need the aero faring as much to get on with the business. The adaptation Jorge has made, will only help him get on quicker with the Honda

Have we ever seen a bigger F-you to a MFG like this before? Zarco to KTM & Jorge to HRC. Seems like lord Puig has a few numbers for vr farty6 & yamaha

I'm reminded of Alberto Puig's reaction when Lin Jarvis let Lorenzo go. Undoubtedly Puig must have been thinking Christmas come early. This is a major development in MotoGP. The balance of power has been shit away by Yamaha. You can't blame Ducati, they gave Jorge a shot, didnít work out. This also highlights Suzuki's commitment to GP, status quo for them. It also highlights Honda's approach ass the Evil Empire, though in this case this fell on their lap.

So where does this leave Petronas Monster Yamaha? Even though it's being reported as a Jlo/HRC done deal, not official yet, any chance of some other major development? Two weeks ago it looked like Lorenzo was headed to forced retirement, today it's a Honda vs Yamaha tug of war.
