Second do we know Dorna “helped” Lorenzo with the Honda seat , or is it just another myth like Marquez “blocking”?
I read a story (rumour) so no proof anywhere but it was claimed to have started around leMans and was said that Marquez approached Lorenzo direct then mentioned it to HRC.

Again, just a story I saw in one of the places I frequent and cannot say that it is correct but you do get a bit of info from time to time

I honestly do not think for a second that Marc fears anyone on a bike.
(I could beat him in a fight though.)

He's rather short but has big arms believe me.

Yeah, that's the only reason he can get his elbows down.
If it wasn't for those long arms he'd be mid-pack WSBK at best.
And his girlfriends would be even uglier.

I'm ok with all of it. I see it as fallout from the 2015 debacle. I also think Lorenzo will do better on RCV than people think. And if he is able to make it more rideable, this benefits Marquez. I'll also add, Marc won't have the luxury of DNFing several times and still winning the title. Then again, as I said in a previous post, if Jlo manages to help make Honda more user-friendly, maybe Marc won't have to ride it like a bat out of hell.

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.
I hear what you are saying but if you think Lorenzo was looking at having to take a shitty ride, landing probably the best bike on the grid for next year is surely a win for him?

Hopefully, he'll be able to bring something to HRC and him and Marc will find an 'understanding' in their different styles. Lorenzo is capable of fighting if the machine is working underneath him, so let's hope they can keep the fighting on the track.

Totally agree in relation to the strength of the team, but if Yam' can sort themselves out, as was the case early last year, their package can be a consistent winner.
But that's a big if.

What happened last year ( vinales starting out excellently then being hobbled by the tyre fiasco ) confirmed to me that Yamaha are lost and have more interest in rossi and the boppers than actual racing.

I agree. Sorry to sound all conspiracy but I do think there is something behind Maverick coming in with a ton of form and then turning really crap.

Lol.
Yamaha is in the business of paying someone millions and fucking with them so that Rossi is happy.

Karel Abraham would have done it for week old sushi.
