Jorge Lorenzo to stay at Yamaha for 2010

Despite Ducati having offered him a bit more money, Jorge Lorenzo has opted to stick with Yamaha for 2010 because they seem to have the best bike right now. Wise decision...

Jorge Lorenzo has renewed his contract with Yamaha and will stay with the Fiat Yamaha MotoGP team in 2010. ‘Today is a good day because I have decided to remain with the Yamaha factory team in 2010. It was a very important decision and that's why I have had to take the last few weeks to make it, but I think that this is the best decision for me in this moment,’ says Lorenzo.

‘We have no doubt that he has the ability and drive to become MotoGP world champion and we are proud that he has decided to remain with Yamaha, despite having received some very serious approaches from some of our competitors. This timely decision now allows us to focus on the present championship and to make definitive plans for our 2010 MotoGP program,’ said Lin Jarvis, Managing Director of Yamaha Motor Racing.

Yeah, good for him.
And if he wanted to proof himself better than Rossi, do it at his own game, in his prime, using the same motorcycle.
If he does it on a Ducati, people will always say that he won because of the bike is superior. Like everyone's saying to Stoner..
Hayden? well he's another story, he won because he's just consistent and played it safe, a winner by points not by winning races.
