What's funny is that last year when Iannone ran into Lorenzo, he went up to him and asked him if there was something wrong with his bike, and why he was going so slow lol None of these guys like to take responsibility for their fuck-ups lol...except for Dovi and Pedrosa

Well that's even funnier to me now if they're looking at firing his ass! LOL...they pretty much said from the beginning that they hired Lorenzo (and paying him a shit ton) for 1 reason only, which was to win races. The fact that he's the slowest or 2nd slowest Ducati is not going well with the team, and being a little bitch about it sure isn't helping his cause either.
You know you're in a bad way when Karel Abraham is kicking you ass, and he's on a 2015 machine.

....and that's probably just another of the many reasons Fenati got fired from the Sky / VR46 race team.

Well, look at what we have here.

An example of rider adapting to bike.

Vinales can't ride bike how he'd like

It's amazing to read what these guys have to say about how they ride the bikes, riding styles, and such....true aliens I tell ya! The fact that they know exactly what they're doing and how much control they have to be able to say "oh yeah, I'd like to brake later and harder, but that's not how THIS bike works, so I'm doing it in a different way"....meanwhile my dumbass tries to brake as late and hard as possible and get on the gas as early as possible, and it's never even close to being enough

I would say that it just seemed to me like Iannone didn't keep his speed throughout the corner and JLo came in through the inside, but of course JLo should have anticipated that being in that crowded middle section and slowed a hair down to avoid that.

The funky unpredictable lines I am referring to are in respect to his overtaking style in the past being that he had a bulls-eye on a bunch of riders, not in this particular situation.

I am expecting JLo to get at least a 7th place finish (or better) in COTA.
