Is Lorenzo Ducatis' Messiah?

Will Ducati horsepower remain to give Lorenzo the championship edge next year? He is a better pilot than Dovi, more consistent than Ianonne (the T bone master), but Marquez shouldnt have won as many races as he did with the under powered Honda. And no-one, I mean no-one, can save a crash better than Marquez. Im sure Ducati will see more podiums and probably be the manufacturers champ but I dont see Lorenzo as thee #1 rider. &

He's had plenty of practice
Lorenzo is a who knows right now.
Can he adapt to the rider spitting beast is the question.
If he can be as smooth as he was on the Yamaha and keep up his corner speed, he'll be really tough to beat.
Vinales tested the Yamaha three weeks ago @ Valencia and set the fastest lap time, beating Marquez, Rossi, Dovisioso, and Lorenzo as well.

Testing is one thing. Racing is another. I do think he will be right there all season tho. All the usual suspects will be. I also think Iannone will be a contender, as he has lots to prove, and the Suzuki is a competitive package now. Few more hp's, and they will be top steppers.

Re: Is Lorenzo Ducatis' Messiah?

One thing for sure....next season will be very interesting.

ducati...lorenzo, Andre
Suzuki...Iannone
Yamaha...Vinales,Rossi.
Honda...marquez, Pedrosa

also..KTM and Aprillia in the grid.

I believe that Jorge will do his best to put Ducati in the front...Casey was giving Lorenzo some advise on how the bike will behave on the track, testing is testing...once on the race mode with all riders fighting for a podium...lap records will be broken. Andre Dovi was taken out early in the season by Ainnone....Andre couldve been in the front if it was not by some riders that took him out earlier.

Will Rossi teach few things to Vinales or will he behave like he did with Lorenzo...building walls to hide all the data??

Marquez...will push as hard as he has the past few years. he is till the youngest with three crowns in four seasons.

Will Ionnone accomplished something for suzuki in the next season ?? he is pushing the bike hard....but it does not mean getting good results.

no woman in this world can bring men to their knees like SUZUKI GSXRs
