JL Honda

Read this today, all i can say is he want's to be on the "best" bike avail, if thats the Repsol in 2015 i can see him sighing. MM93 + JL99 riding for Honda will be the dream team of all dream teams, i mean the only question for most races will be; who'd be joing them on the podium lol

Gazzetta dello Sport: ‘Lorenzo not dismissing Honda for 2015’

Monday, 18 November 2013

Several publications, amongst them Italy’s Gazzetta dello Sport, are continuing to mention Jorge Lorenzo’s possible move to Honda for the 2015 MotoGP™ season. Furthermore, the World Champion of 2010 and 2012 is quoted as not dismissing the option: “You cannot rule out any team. You never know what can happen.”
Lorenzo, whose current deal with Yamaha ends in 2014, continues: “I would like to end my career with Yamaha, retiring as a Yamaha legend. I would like to win another title as Rainey or Lawson did, but I would also like to have the best bike, so hopefully Yamaha will be able to give that to both myself and Valentino (Rossi).”
At the same time, HRC Vice President Shuhei Nakamoto has already admitted his interest in Lorenzo by confirming that ‘we will talk to him for 2015’.

Speculation at its finest.

Although, it would be interesting if it did happen...

I'm thinking its Lorenzo telling Yamaha, 'guys, you have to do better with the bike if you want to keep me in the future.'

I agree. There's also not much point in having the 2 best riders, if they're clearly far above the rest, from any point of view. It's bad for MotoGP from an entertainment point of view; it's pointless for Honda/Repsol as they only need the best and 3rd or 4th best to win the constructor's and team championship - just overkill. He's just starting his negotiations early.
