Rossi vs Lorenzo in Japan...

Jorge Lorenzo felt that some of team-mate Valentino Rossi's moves during their thrilling - and at times physical - fight for third at Motegi on Sunday were 'a bit too much'.

Yamaha bosses are also said to have felt that some of Rossi's moves were too risky, given that Lorenzo is a fellow Yamaha rider and on target to win the 2010 MotoGP title.

So is Lorenzo justified in feeling Rossi took things too far, or are his words just the complaints of a beaten rider?

Rossi never pushed him off the track or made him crash. It's racing, Lorenzo needs to deal with it.

Reminiscent of a beaten Casey Stoner Laguna Seca, come on thats racing. Watch WSBK, Moto 2, BSB, world supersport it happens somewhere down the line every single race. Thats the problem with Motogp now, i mean come on Formula 1 is almost as exciting. I can see what hes saying a little but Lorenzo brought it on just as much as Rossi. Its what we love, thats why we watch it. Should happen more often in my opinion.

The only reason it doesn't happen more is the small amount of bikes on the grid. Look at the scuffs in Moto2. 40 riders battling for position, it's brilliant to see the talent these guys have and sheer balls when pushing for a spot. Demented is right, it is racing...

As long as a rider isn't flagged by race officials for their riding, team or not, it's every man for themselves.

yea I think lorenzo needs to get over it....

the only one that really pushes him is Rossi, and Rossi is finally feeling good enough to push again

and the bottom line is, Lorenzo is just not as good

Rossi's still not 100% and he can stil push and eventually get the better of him, he really is the greatest


not to mention their battle was the most entertaining part of the this entire season!

I think this is Rossi sticking it to Lorenzo/Yamaha - he's not going to give an inch unless you pry it from him. Forcefully. He wasn't going to give up that position as long as he had a chance.

Considering the bikes are (near) identical, Lorenzo was just unable to outride Rossi, so Rossi maintained his position.

^^haha

i watched the last laps like 10 times and it was totally legit racing. lorenzo left plenty of room for rossi to dive in. Lorenzo just tipped the bike onto rossi after he was in the inside. Almost looked like lorenzo did it cause he realized he left to much room for rossi to make a move.

Lorenzo needs to man up and stop bitching. rossi was ahead of him the entire race, and obviously had the pace. lorenzo has the tilte locked up, pedrosa was out, and will be out the next round as well. he only needs 7 points for the title, so if he was concerned about dicing with rossi, he should have stayed behind and settled for 4th. he chose to bring it, so WTF? was rossi supposed to let him have 3rd just because he wanted it?

C"mon girl, just let me put the tip in!!!

Would be sad if the standings between Lorenzo and someone else (Pedrosa for instance) were closer and Yamaha made Rossi pull over to let Lorenzo by. Nah they would never, they learned their lesson in the 70s when they forced Hannah to let Glover by. BTW thats Yamaha's Keith McCarty holding the sign.

Exactly, you aren't dealing with some little bitch, this is Valentino Rossi, the undisputed GOAT, the nine million time world champion! I'm a Lorenzo fan but buddy, know your role, your having an epic season on the bike that Rossi and Burgess developed.

Yamaha was put in a tough position having Rossi and Yogurt on the same team. Lorenzo is an incredible talent on the way up and Rossi, the GOAT on the way out, but he is still hot. Yamaha would have benefited HUGE if Rossi retired a Yamaha rider. Jordan has been retired for years and Nike continues to make millions of his name.

That tug of war lead to Rossi going to Ducati. I would bet my last dollar that Rossi would tell Yamaha to go **** themselves if they tried to pull team orders. Like Muffin Man said, Lorenzo needs to check his ego and ride out the championship and win the war. Rossi proved that he will not concede one inch if they go into a head to head battle.

Rossi is the GOAT, say it, learn it, believe it.

Yamaha would have benefited more by keeping Rossi, sending Lorenzo to WSBK for 2011, then bringing him back in 2012 knowing already knowing how to ride a big bike. He's going to be fucked in 2012 since he'll have to completely change his riding style, which is one of the only things, aside from the bike he's on, that's keeping him up in the front.

Cry baby trying to tell Yamaha Rossi is the reason he did not get the Championship wrapped up
already at the same token Vale by his gutsy moves told Jorge and Yamaha that he ain't laying low
or giving a freebee win to his team mate just because the championship is on the line
way to go Vale Forza Italia

Lorenzo unhappy with Rossi battle tactics

Monday, 04 October 2010
Following their nail-biting fight for third position in the Grand Prix of Japan the Championship leader was dissatisfied with the manner in which his Fiat Yamaha team-mate secured the final podium spot.

Fourth position at Motegi has done little to dent Jorge Lorenzo's hopes of securing the 2010 MotoGP World Championship but the Spaniard was left extremely unhappy with the manner in which he missed out on a podium finish to team-mate and current World Champion Valentino Rossi.

Their Japanese battle began at the first turn of the opening lap and as the two remained in close contact throughout the race the fight for third really heated up towards the end of the 24-lap contest, with daring moves and touching fairings the highlights in a tense battle that engrossed everyone watching on. Rossi managed to edge the result and whilst Lorenzo was understandably disappointed at finishing off the podium for only the second time this season, it was the nature in which he did so that left him with a bitter taste in his mouth.

"The show is great for the people to enjoy and the business of motorcycle racing, it's fantastic, but when you are a rider who is on a MotoGP bike which gets up to 300 km/h in the straight and 180-200 km/h in the corners and you are feeling the other rider touch you it's not a great feeling or a good emotion because you know you are putting your life at risk," said Lorenzo in the attached video interview. "The three or four moves I made on Valentino I felt were correct and fair. On the other hand his moves were legal but on the limit, from my point of view. We have seen the way he likes to fight, it happened before with Gibernau, then with Stoner, and now with me. Maybe in the future his rivals will get a little bit mad and we will act like he usually does!"

Lorenzo added: "We are team-mates, I am fighting for the Riders' Championship but we are both fighting for the Teams' and Manufacturers' Championship as well and we have to remember this. I am disappointed to miss the podium of course because I wanted one at Yamaha's home, but this is racing."

The decision to go with the medium front Bridgestone tyre as opposed to the hard option that his rivals opted for was a key factor in his race as well said Lorenzo. "It was obvious after the race that our choice was not the best but we can't change the situation. We made a mistake with the front tyre and I didn't have so much confidence in the front so for this reason it was difficult to overtake Valentino. We also chose the old engine because with the new one we would waste a lot of fuel and would not finish the race."

Lorenzo remains on the verge of sealing his first premier class title and leads the standings by 69 points ahead of injured rival Dani Pedrosa heading into Round 15 of 18 at Sepang next weekend.

"I am very happy at the moment because we are very close to achieving a dream that has been in the making for 20 years. It was nice to get the 250cc World titles but now we are talking about something much bigger. Maybe in Malaysia we can get it and we will then celebrate, and after in Spain," he concluded.
