Comments

The 25 point lead should be easily managed by Lorenzo. He doesn't have to gun for the win everytime out and take any unecessary risks. Pedrosa won today but it will be very hard for him to dominate many more races like he did today. And even if he does, who else could frequently take points from J-Lo simultaneously? Stoner could, but the GP10 is clearly a step or two behind at the moment.

Lorenzo basically needs to keep his head, that's it. He can afford to share some wins because the M1 is the only bike certain to be fast everywhere.

But he also made it pretty clear some weeks ago that he is not willing to win or crash like he did in 2009. 6, 8 ot 10 wins, the title matters more and he knows it.
