Thumbs down Lorenzo...

So how long before Duc cancels his contract? I am saying 6 races before they start looking to get rid of him.

Re: Lorenzo...

Have you seen the parody "Dear George" stuff? HILARIOUS! (Dear George Archives - BIKE ME!).

I'm sure the lawyers have a clause in there somewhere, but could they really fire him? After he pushed the bike over, that had to piss someone off. Dovi is doing okay on the bike, so I'm not sure what Jorge's problem is. It's not fun to watch for sure. I think by now he's had enough laps to figure the bike out, so the "new" excuse can be tossed out. Maybe it just doesn't suit his style. After the injuries, he's just not been the same. I wonder if there's a head game going on.

Re: Lorenzo...

Yeah, I am sure they can fire him for non-performance or some other shit written into the contract.

And hell yeah, I love Dear George.

Dovi did well the first race, and was about to do decently the second race, until he got torpedoed. Again.

Re: Lorenzo...

If I was Lorenzo I would have written into the contract that I am moody and not the easiest person to be around the first hour after the race.....

Those Dear George spoofs are excellent. The butter and hammer one had me rolling.

Re: Lorenzo...

is he actually yelling at the bike? what a prick!

Ducatisti are not gonna love him if he keeps going that direction,blaming the bike and insulting the firm this way.

No wonder if he's gonna get booed by them at Mugello.

Re: Lorenzo...

Who knows. They say "the spanish press" but don't offer any credits/sources.... but it's obvious we're not the only ones speculating.

Re: Lorenzo...

I think this weekend's results in Austin will be a huge tell as to whether they keep him or not.

Re: Lorenzo...

Do we want to start a couple pools? One for finishing position and the other for on which lap he bins it?

Re: Lorenzo...

Re: Lorenzo...

I'll take the boring UFC fight outcome approach.

He makes it to the end playing it safe with a loss.(poor placing)

Re: Lorenzo...

12th at COTA. He will finish the season with Ducati, but they'll come up with some reason for him to not come back in 2018. Maybe switch to a Tech 3 Yamaha with factory support for 2018 and then move back to Yamaha factory team when Rossi retires after 2018.

Or maybe he'll pop smoke in MotoGP and go to Formula 1 to avoid embarrassment?

I'm not a JLo fan at all. But I do kind of feel bad for him. Wonder if Rossi is silently thinking, "Now you know how I felt!"
