* 2017 MotoGP world champion

Round Number: 

Back to top


Anything less than first and Rossi finishes fourth in the standings, well done Dani Pedrosa, and well done Rossi hauling his mending leg to yet another high finish in fifth.

Next year looks to be even more competitive: Marquez, Dovi, Zarco, Lorenzo, all look like early favorites, then we have Pedrosa, Rossi, Vinales, with Iaonne, Rins and the KTMs moving forward fast. And how about Folger returning and Morbedelli on MotoGp machine for the first time?

Crutchlow is a threat only after he finds consistency and proves he can concentrate for a whole race. 

I don't expect much out of Nakagami, Crutchlow's new teammate, but you never know. The Aprilas  are right there but the rider/bike package is, perhaps a little inconsistent.

We will see, luckily I have a busy winter ahead of me and can let the amazing 2017 season sink in. 

I too wonder if there are any JLo fans out there…..it’s tough to support that type of behavior.

MM93 will never make it to surpass Ago if he keeps crashing. At some point that is gonna catch up to him (or you would think so). He is clearly awesome and a great champion. I love to see him up on the top step.

Great season. I am bummed it is over but I look forward to next year. I wonder if MV25 can pull it back together over the off season. Pretty crappy end to what looked like a golden season. I guess that is why they go around the track and not give the trophy to the winner of testing.

Then there is Nick Harris. Will definetly miss him. I know he drove some folks crazy but I enjoyed his antics and commentary. 

I think it's unfair to compair Ago and Marquez; the championship has evolved so much over the years that the two eras have only a passing semblance.  From '65 through to '77 Ago competed in both the 350 and 500 series, and he often won both - but not always.  The level of competition was different at the time as well; note that in '74 Ago won the 350 championship, he only started in 5 of the ten races, he won those five, the other five he either didn't attend or didn't start.  From '68 all the way through to the middle of '73 he won every single race that he finished - in both classes he was competing in, there's just no way that is possible in the modern era, with manufacturers so close.
