Bad race for Rossi and Lorenzo. It's the first time Lorenzo finished dead last in a dry race, but he did at least have the best fuel economy of everyone out there. He's a big advocate for climate change.

Can't help wondering if it's his inability to adjust to the Honda or if he's still coping with injury.

He was in last place for a while, but after an intense battle with Syahrin he managed to finish in front of him.

In my opinion, his performance is most definately a result of his injury.

I thinks it's a combination of both. His injuries are accentuating his difficulties with the bike. As Crutchlow says repeatedly; the current Honda requires a lot of strong rider input to extract the performance. He even once mentioned how this was illustrated by how tired a very fit Marquez can appear after a race. So if it takes so much to tame the bike, then Jorge who is injured and unfit as a result will only get on that much worse. I doubt he'd be doing better than Crutchlow if he was fit, though of course that's just my own speculation.

I meant if he had stayed with Yamaha and not gone to Ducati in the first place. He had a contact offer to stay at Yamaha, but iirc thought Yamaha favoured Rossi over him, had re-signed him first etc, etc and would continue to do so.

Great photo. I think Jack has really matured this year. Started the year going like a bat outa hell and burning up his tyres, but the last few races has really started to do the hard yards during practise by concentrating on set up & race pace. His end of race pace has been pretty good, whereas earlier in the year he was falling down the order. Now he genearally qualifies well and races with thought and maturity. Petruci had better keep looking over his shoulder, cause since he signed that contract extension, his riding has been very average. I hope he nevers loose the "Jack being Jack" behaviour though.
