Saddened that he retires on a low note, but glad he gets to retire on his own decision. He admitted that the hill was too tall and he didn't have the motivation to climb it so respect to him for making the decision.

He leaves a lasting legacy to the sport, Vamos Jorge! You will be missed champion.

His battle with Marquez in Austria 2018 was a masterclass in racecraft.

Well.. that's it. I remember when Lorenzo said he had self love when signed with Honda, departing with Ducati.

Maybe he meant masochist love or something like that.

He also revealed he said to Puig he won't regret signing Lorenzo, LoL.

Lorenzo has such a big mouth and pride. Look at where his pride took him. He was humiliated so much, enough to say enough.

But I really learned to like this guy, his courage and determination. I'm sad he is going fish with Stoner. Two legends.

I am gutted he's leaving but he was never faster than Stoner.

He's an odd one. I've always admired his determination in the face of adversity. More than others, he's been subject to periods of mental 'meltdown' during which he was unrecognizable. But he'd pick himself up, pull himself together and soon enough, be winning again. Shouldn't that count for something? I don't glorify any of those guys, but do appreciate the physical bravery, skill, and focus required to compete. FWLIW, Jorge gets an 'Attaboy' from this fool.

Now Ducati can offer him consultant job as they did with Stoner. If he falls for it then he will learn Ducati does not listen, as they did with Stoner. And then he can quit, as did Stoner. And then they can go fishing with Stoner and live happily ever after without MotoGP frenzy. Eh?

good career, he won his championships, then got his payday from Ducati, thats quite rare in this business.

I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up working with Ducati in some capacity.
