MotoGP Spain vs Italy or Rossi vs Lorenzo

What is going on in MotoGP? Rossi is accusing Marquez of helping Lorenzo. Lorenzo now won the world championship and he thinks it belongs to Spain. That in turns upsets  Rossi even more. Pedrosa is caught up in between the lot. The whole thing is like a soap opera. You couldn’t script it any better than that. The Spaniards versus the Italians.

Last race in Valencia was interesting. Lorenzo was starting from pole and his team mate, Rossi, had to start from the back of the grid due to a penalty he received in Malaysia. I won’t go into that one now. Lorenzo took off from the lights and straight into the lead. He stayed there until the end of the race. Rossi on the other end carved his way through the field like a hot knife through butter. It was quite spectacular. It didn’t take him long to get towards the pointy end. But once Rossi reached fourth position he couldn’t progress any further. The race was just about done.

The order was Lorenzo. Marquez, Pedrosa and Rossi. Pedrosa dropped some 2.5 seconds back from the leading duo. With about 5 laps to go he picked up again and managed to close the gap to Marquez and Lorenzo. He once attempted to overtake Marquez, but it didn’t work. It seemed a bit like Marquez was protecting Lorenzo. but these are all allegations. Rossi lost out this year and we don’t know if he can have another go next season. next year he’ll be 37. We’ll see. Personally I doubt it. I think the time is over for Rossi to win World Championships. Then again, I’ve been wrong before.

    Hi Danny,

    Do you do signed prints of your work? We’re big fans of MotoGP and joke about the Circus behind the racevall the type me. No surprise then that when I fell in love with your work and started sharing links to your blog after races, you built a fanbase in my family and friends pretty darned fast. I would love to give my hubby a set of his favorite Zemps in frames for his office if such a thing is possible.

    • Hi Tracy
      Thank you for your interest in my MotoGP cartoons. I have a lot of fun drawing them. Of course I have prints for sale. I’m yet to set up the shop. I can work out a deal for you.
      I had a few issues with our web provider in the last couple of weeks. I will add a few more very soon. As usual I Get them up onto the site as soon after the races as I can.
      Let me know where you are.

        Hi Danny,

        We are in Canada. I am looking foward to learning what we can arrange. A group of your prints will make a wonderful gift for the hubby. 🙂

        • Hi Tracy, of course we can do something. In the age of electronics there has to be a solution. I try to get my head around things as I just returned from an overseas trip. That’s why I haven’t replied. I was in a information black hole. It sounds weird this day and age but I kind of enjoyed time without any interruptions.
          Please throw me a line in which cartoons you’re interested in. We take it from there. You know I can do personalised caricatures as well? Just a thought…
          Thanks again for your interest in my work.
