The Italian media have been rioting at Marquez's training camp...

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.
Edit to add: a petition has been started demanding to drop the customary qualifying format and allow the Italian to start from pole position. The reason given is to rectify the obvious conspiracy of Phillip Island and Sepang. So far it's reached three-quarters of a million signatures...

Dorna have instructed their camera crew to compile footage for a "lap of honor" of the Italian... (for the Italian that returned after a Lazarethian near death comeback of Biblical proportions to compete in the Season Finale.)

Extra security have been posted in front of Marquez's garage to protect him from possible violence of the Italian's fan club members angry with the situation.

A new rule has been instituted effective immediately, warning riders not to say anything negative that would bring the championship into disrepute...

Some fans started a GoFundMe to raise money that they then were going to pay to any rider who would take out Lorenzo so Rossi could become world champion IIRC.

Did you guys skip math at High School? MM is 21 points ahead (282 vs 261); if Dovi doesn't win, MM wins by a point even with a DNF: 21 > 20. I'm not a betting man, but the odds of Dovi pulling that crap are astronomically small IMO. And if it happens, guess it was meant to be.
Yes I forgot the point difference.

Has anyone got a list of positions at the end?
My choice is;
1st Dani
2nd Zarco
3rd anyone but Rossi.

If a dry race MM is world champ again, Dovi comes in 6th

Can anyone translate what Marquez said when asked about the flags? He ended up replying in Spanish - about 50mins into the conference

That's gonna make it harder for Dovi tomorrow. Coming from ninth in Valencia isn't going to be easy.
