So what's up with Lorenzo???

The guy blasts out to a large lead, then slowly falls back, ending 8th. I know there's a history of established riders having trouble coming to terms with Ducati GP bikes (Rossi and Nicky), but with Dovi doing well (at least until LeMans), one has to wonder if it's the bike, or Lorenzo.

Thoughts, guys?

I think he put soft tyres on to impress the bosses for a few laps knowing that they would wear out early.

I heard Rossi has paid off Lorenzo to go slow so it doesn't make the Doctor look a bigger tosser than he already is....

IMO. I tnink he destroys the tires and start loosing grip so, he has to step down.
The other thing is that he gets tired wreseling the bike and he has fall back.
