[QUOTE="Fijiandoce, post: 6454701]Aye, anybody know what happened to honda? A couple of years ago they were winning everything, yeah? Ducati are running second behind Rossi and co....and they were a ways of years back.

It's like someone flipped the order around :snicker[/QUOTE]

Honda has not been the same this year, Marquez is really struggling which is a shame, the bike is just not quick enough!

I think the problem is the exact opposite, the bike is still the same as it was last year but the others have improved. Marquez is doing similar lap times to what he was last season but Lorenzo, Rossi and especially Dovi are improving hand over fist. Some of Lorenzo's race times have been 20 seconds or more quicker than last year but Marc's haven't really improved, when he actually finishes that is.
All that info is available on the MotoGP website.

I'm glad someone cleared that up, to be honest I haven't been following it much this year as I did last so pretty much guessed at the reason, how wrong was I haha

1 point lead now for rossi!! he needs to start winning again now! Lorenzo is just going for it this year, he has picked himself up again an has shown he cares about winning! Marc is on bad form pushing himself an taking risks an has fallen off more this season alone. I don't think marc going to be winning a 3rd WC on a trot tbh. it will be between Rossi & Lorenzo this season Yamaha duels hopefully if rossi can get more up front an he has got to sort out his Qualifying.
