    The talk is already starting that Honda will punt dear George at the end of the season.

    What say the beeb

    CB186 go f@ck yourself

    I don't think even Honder would do that. I think he'll eventually figure it out, but I don't mnd seeing him struggle.

    He probably won't win a race this year but they won't fire him after the first season.

    He gets one more year at Honda. He will remember how to ride just in time to secure his Suzuki contract. It is inevitable.

    not sure hes out but not looking good for a win. they kept pedrosa around a long time, but somehow Lorenzo seems to be doing worse along with higher expectations. not a good combo. im sure hes not cheap either. a young guy could do no worse for allot less.

    Does he really only have a 1yr contract?

    They wouldn't be smart to do that... learn from Ducati. Just when he figured it out they let him go.

    And I'm not voting in the poll, the options suck :p

    Honda solved their Ducati problem by hiring Lorenzo. He ain't going anywhere end of the season. They should be thankful.

    You wouldn't know by watching the races, he's never close enough to the front to be part of the video stream.

    It'll be the same as his run at Ducati.

    He won't do anything this year....and then have a couple flashes of brilliance in 2020 and they fizzles out.

    Who knows what the big red evil empire will do.... they're fickle. It's funny how Pedro seems to quite fondly remembered now after years of lackluster results. Anyone think JL will have the same treatment???

    I'll throw out this conspiracy theory:

    JL shows great speed at the end of his Duc contract, convincing Honda to back up the money truck to his estate with a huge upfront salary and standard win bonuses. He then does his standard Princess and the pea routine.

    Bautista goes to WSB and takes a modest salary with huge bonus structure for wins. You know the rest.

    What exactly is his problem with the Honda? Is it like the Duc was for Stoner - somehow Marquez has figured out how to tame the beast by being crazier than it is, or is Lorenzo just a pussy?
