Really don't like the bloke, sorry Crying or Very sad

He never stopped whinging about Simoncelli and after the tragic accident he walked around with a..."I told you so" grin on his face for days.....
not cool Wink

Jorge's a good guy - a bit young and full of himself but as triple world champ at about 24 you would tend to let it get to you a bit! He has obvious ability but I admire his desire to get on and ride, like when he podiumed in his first MotoGP year with two broken ankles at Le Mans, having been lifted onto the bike. I think he rode most that season with broken bones.

Odd how unpopular he is in Spain. They tend to think hes an arrogant buga!

At the Jerez GP's the biggest cheers tend to be when Rossi get past anyone, including their home talent like Jorge and Dani. Much as the Brits love Rossi I think they'd be cheering Cal to beat him.

Thanks for all the votes folks! Hope one of my voters wins the Nikon - let us know!

to be fair i think this year he has actually calmed down a bit, attitude wise.......every time Moaner has had a pop at Rossi/Vagati, Jorge has expressed a more understanding line of thought about the potential issues

If you get a chance to see the full length documentary about how George was raised by his father then had all the nightmares of his early career then you may get to understand his attitude. He rides the arse of bikes without complaint and for me, he is no worse on the arrogance stakes then any of the others.

Going good, as Danni said today - his worse two results in the opening 5 races are 2 * 2nd Cool
