Could be true. But Lorenzo was launched to the orbit 4-5 years ago, and from an 800cc machine using tyres, that are probably quite different from what they ride today.
Well, come to think of it, a massive highside actually happened to Stoner at Indy last year.... one would think that MM, being a rookie, will be more vulnerable to such incidents.
