Not expecting my prediction to work, I picked Marc but if 93 wins & Fabio takes second Marquez improves his position by 5 points. Using that simple scenario Marc has to win ten times to pick up 50 points. M Marquez could do it based on recent form. But needs plenty of races. If we loose rounds, Barcelona/Catalunya for example where the plague is going up at the moment, the task gets harder. all Quartararo has to do is finish second at least & see if Marc can catch up. It is a very different situation for the Marc, he is usually leading & putting pressure on the rest of the class.
Found a interesting piece from Mat Oxley

Oxley interviews Stiggy who says Fab is very accurate and precise. sounds like FQ 20 is the new "Metronome".
How many rounds will we have? MotoGp website still showing 11 more rounds starting with Brno. After Europe then maybe Argentina, Thailand and or Malaysia. So we could enjoy 16 races all up. That would be enough for a championship.
In the past the world champion has been decided over less races. I didn't bother going back to 1949, but had a bit of a look
In 1974 & 75 there were 10 rounds! the Isle of Man was still on the Gp calendar.
1980 only 8 races; Graziano Rossi fifth in the chip with about half the points of King Kenny Roberts.
By 1981 we had 11 rounds, 12 in 82 & 83. By 1988 up to 15 rounds.
However many races we get it will still be a real championship to me. The more races the better for MM93 and all the rest of us!
