Also, if you need rain races to stay in the mix you are not evenly matched.
Yamaha were pissed that the Spaniards clubbed together to take the title away from Rossi to JL. Read the article where they mentioned the thunderous look on the Yamaha paddock team's faces when Lorenzo was handed the win by his countrymen. He even SAID as much....he said EXACTLY that! And yet you guys seem to think it didn't happen. Amazing fanboy stuff....

Regarding the rain races...I'd suggest you have it about-face.....you are not evenly matched if your boy can only win in the dry. I'm saying that JL is faster than Rossi in the dry but that Rossi is faster in the wet.

Racing happens regardless of dry or wet conditions....so it's a toss-up as to who has the advantage. Nothing weird or wrong with that, and whoever gets to take advantage of the conditions....wins. Simple.
