Lorenzo.

Lorenzo is about to sign a two year deal with  Honda to be "team mates " with Marquez, I did not expect that.
Apparently Zarco turned Honda down to go to KTM, hope that works out well for him.

Lorenzo on a Honda should be interesting. I doubt whether he will be anything but number 2 to Marquez. The bike will be developed to suit Marquez and Lorenzo will have to work out how to adapt his riding. He should have more success than what he's had at Ducati.


I can't imagine why Zarco would turn down Honda in favour of KTM but it all boils down to what was being offered by Honda. There must have been something that put him off.

I think Zarco is a realist,a brilliant rider and I think intelligent enough to know that he's never going to be anything other than Marquez's number 2
tell you what though since this post Lorenzo has really clicked with the Ducati,bet he wished he'd waited a bit ay?
never look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

It was something that Ducati finally did for Lorenzo that cost about £2.50 allegedly!
Maybe certain tracks have proved to be favourable... but he's made his money and time to move on.

Spotted a set of his riding gear on the tour of Barcelona FC stadium this morning.
