Re: Round 14 - Gran Premio Octo di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli

Awesome race. Bagnaia seems the complete package, all he needs is to develop consistency (which he seems perfectly capable of doing) and Ducati will have finally found their guy. Speaking of Duc, surely they can't just let Bastianini walk. And I'm happy for FQ. It ain't over til it over and today he...

Re: Round 14 - Gran Premio Octo di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli

No gonna lie, Moto GP's qualifying sessions have never been so boring. Watching riders wait for tows and then run around in conga lines has completely killed my enthusiasm for Q1 and Q2. Not to mention the cameras only follow MM (the worse offender), so of course I saw none of Bastianini's fast lap...

Re: MotoGP 2021, Aragon. Win or bin, which Marquez will show up?

I liked the race, too bad Quartararo had such a poor day (for his 2021 standards). It would have been more exciting with him elbows out in the top 5.

Re: MotoGP 2021, Aragon. Win or bin, which Marquez will show up?

I have no idea of what'll happen. That being said, Marquez seems fast but not clearly fastest, which is exactly the scenario I want to see play out. I'm very curious to see how he'll balance his aggressiveness with a very tight field and a win not a sure scenario.

MotoGP 2021, Aragon. Win or bin, which Marquez will show up?

Left handed circuit, home turf, inching closer to full fitness; what do you guys expect from MM? I just hope he doesn't bump people off again (and maintain he should have received a slap on the wrist and 3 place grid penalty). As a side note, I hope Martin has a clean weekend. I'm very interested in...

What is the most likely Yamaha line up for 2022? Factory is Quartararo, Morbidelli Satellite is Dovi on a factory bike and the A-Spec bike is yet to be filled. They said they were going to bring new talent into MotoGP, most likely from Moto2 and then they signed Dovi so its a case of say one thing,...

Re: Lolly Water British Gp

Quartararo has been exceptional. It's refreshing to see a genuine new alien emerge. I love him, but honesty is necessary. Marquez has been poops. Total garbage. Sachsenring aside, every single race is a countdown to the moment he screws up. When will the press call him out? Has he not crashed enough...

Combine that with HRC hopefully making the bike easier to ride and 2022 will be interesting for Big Red And there’s also the chance tyre allocations for ...

Re: Round 11 - Austrian GP

I guess the result prevents Quartararo from blitzing away in the title fight, but he remains as fast and consistent as any. I think Mir might be the "champion" of the second half of the season but the gap to Fabio is just too large.

I note that of the seven times that Aleix Espargaro has finished this year, four of those times he beat Maverick.

I wonder if this has had some effect on Maverick's decision.

Re: Silly Season

If promoting Fernandez to MotoGP is what it takes to keep him, KTM should not think twice about doing it. Ideally he'd stay for another year and win the title, but it's not worth letting Yamaha snatch him because of Moto2.
