I know Marco Bezzecchi and his family fairly well and I can assure you they couldn't be more far from being wayward

As per the title hunt bikes will matter as well. The KTM has an engine advantage that Bez needs to use in Phillip Island and Malaysia because I'm pretty sure he won't have anything for Martin in Valencia.

In which case he needs to translate that to the track as IMO coming in from 14th to 1st on a haphazard course, doesn't make champions.
Taking into consideration Jorge's form the last 3 races last year, I think he will be ahead of Marco in the last 2 races as PI suits the KTM better, but I won't hold my breath purely on the overall rider performance.

You do have a point. Martin is overall faster as of now that's for sure, but as long as I see a clean battle (no more crashes nor injuries and such) I'd be happy to cheer whoever gets this title, even tho like I said I am clearly rooting for Bez, ALL THE WAY

Hahahaha Martin's stuffed Bezzecchi and his team mate, 1st, 15th and 17th.
Guess its Martin's to lose now and where did Binder come from, I bet Aki is regretting letting him go.

What a result for Martin!

If he sits behind Bezzechi at Sepang, then he'll be guaranteed to win at Valencia imo.

Gotta say. Moto3 is the most exciting racing on the GP calendar. It's amazing. I'm supporting Martin, and all race I'm dreading he's gonna be taken out. Riding on the outside continuously he's just tempting trouble. He survived this one, I don't know how. Looking to see a straight fight to close championship. Neither rider being taken off track by another. Anything can and will happen in Moto3.

I just found out he hails from Oban (one of my top 5 favourite places in the world ) so I guess I'm kind of a fan now

Congratulations Jorge, brilliant ride to seal the championship. Feel a bit bad for bezzechi, but we can only have one champion.


Both off to Moto2 next year.
