Re: Silly Season

Just watching WSBK and hope, for the sake of that series, that there is SOME truth to the rumours about Rea going to Petronas! :D Christ big fish in a small pond doesn't cover the half of it.. Rea will be 35 next year, if he's going to do something great in MotoGP he has to join for 2022 or forget it

Re: Silly Season

It seems that VR46 is claiming that Aramco will be a sponsor, but Aramco is saying that they will not be. Sounds rather confusing... This article says that Rossi may need to race in 2022 to make sure that the team can find sponsorship. https://www.autosport.com/motogp/news/podcast-explaining-the-sp...

Re: Silly Season

Part of the equation is how much money a rider brings to a team the $1M rider might be cheaper than the $0.5M rider What we see at Aprilia is an experienced rider who manages to put the bike in the group that's fighting for the places just off the podium and a new rider who is in the back end of the...

Re: Round 9 Dutch TT (Assen)

It's difficult to do a "what if" for Quartararo vs Vinales. Based on what I saw in the race plus a bit of history, I'd guess that Quartararo would of ended up on Vinales tail and would of overtaken him, then Vinales would of being behind Quartararo not able to overtake. However towards the end of th...

Re: Round 9 Dutch TT (Assen)

after a best position of 10th for a Ducati rider (Miller) in Free Practice both Bagnaia and Zarco after taking out Q1 have done well in Q2. While the winner is likely to be Vinales or Quartararo, its not clear who else will be on the podium.

Re: Round 9 Dutch TT (Assen)

It's a tall order to expect something fantastic out of someone who has had little time on the bike/tyres. The experience of a different bike and different team might indirectly help him in WSBK. Why Gerloff and not Razgatlioglu or someone else could of also boiled down to sponsorship conflicts, like...

Re: Round 8 - German GP (Sachsenring)

Random drop: Aprilia should be shopping for 2 riders. I don’t think Aleix had the ‘zen’ in him help them take the next step. Another dimension would be that whether it would help Aprilia to replace both riders at the same time. My gut feeling is that they could be better in the long term to replace...

Re: Silly Season

I suspect that Aprilia will get the 2 spare slots with their own team and VR46 will take over Avinta. Will of course depend on funding and COVID has changed many business's that had relationships with MotoGP
