I think Ducati should sell t-shirts with the slogan“Proposed Assignment 8”. They would sell like hotcakes. Maybe with a different slogan on the back: “never give up”.
Personally I would buy a whole batchto motivate me to run. It is always important to remember what we are made of. Especially when things aren’t going so well and there’s a temptation to quit.
Leave it. Why persevere? Let it go. Let the others decide. why do you care
How many times have we heard these phrases?
In life. In sports. At our work.
And then we moved on, walked another mile, ignored our boss, to do what we thought was best for our company.
Take a risk, sure. Risking personal relationships, but also our own egos, which would take a hit if we failed. Not to mention pissing off our superiors.
And yet we have always followed our instincts without worrying too much about the consequences.
It didn’t always pay off, let’s face it.
People often didn’t understand us, criticized us, and we admit they were sometimes right, because moving on is not always the best choice for social peace.
But we are not sheep and caring about what others think has never been our priority.
It’s not callousness – we feel bad when we hear criticism – but we just don’t let it condition us.
All this to express that In our opinion, Jorge Lorenzo did not “disobey” a repeated order. fout of the garage to let Andrea Dovizioso pass.
He just did what he thought was right At this moment.
He made a decision. A hard decision. One that might even seem wrong. And yet he did it anyway.
And then he inevitably had to stand up, justify his decision, wait for Dovi’s reaction. And of course that wasn’t enough, because “Dovizioso is too much of a gentleman, he will have been annoyed privately”.
So, Jorge, who made you do this?
We all know it, we don’t need to repeat it: The easiest decision for him was to slow down a little and leave the responsibility of following (?) to the Italian.
But Jorge is not like that. He will always move in a stubborn, opposite direction.
He’s a champ.
Let’s keep that in mind too Valencia was not the last race of 2017 but the first of 2018.
Ducati hired Lorenzo to have a number one rider and that’s what it has. They paid him to be Lorenzo, nobody else.
Just like Valentino Rossi in 2011, Jorge had a terrible year at Ducati but he didn’t let it get him down, on the contrary, although in some respects his season was worse than Vale’s. Not so much because today’s Desmosedici is better than the one from 2011 – Stoner won with it, let’s not forget that – but because his team-mate did better than him.
A straight course. Having a man in the garage capable of making decisions like that is exactly what Yamaha has been missing this year. with a Rossi initially unsure how to let his experience be heard and a Vinales ending up a prisoner of his coat of arms.
Ten, hundred, thousand Lorenzo.
(Sure, in the end Ducati made a bad impression, but that’s another matter)
