14 degrees North. I don’t think the temperature would change much.

I should have been clearer. His talk won't sell Rossi T-shirts.

Marc is in the form of his life at the moment and I have no doubt that if he jumps ship now, he will win another championship within the next 2 years, perhaps even the first year. But yes, if he does, Honda’s goose is cooked. Dani or Cal aren’t going to win them a championship and Nakagami/ Morbidelli/ Lüthi are far too green. If Marc does leave, their only play would be to convince Lorenzo to jump ship, but I really do not think J.Lo will do well on the raging bull that is the Honda.

I reckon Zarco would go honda factory in an instant. Would also love to see Miller on it. Remember the only real competition they have is Marc and Dovi.

I thought that Miller on the factory bike was always the long term plan when Honda helped him skip Moto2 straight to GP.
Wouldn't be surprised to see it happen if he has a decent year on the duke.

I don't think that Jackass will be moving again to Honda. If he has a good year at the Duc I think they would transfer him to the factory team, if Garcia isn't available and Lorenzo don't perform like he is paid. But definitely this season and eye on Jackass, Zarco and Nakagami too, pretty well for a rookie on the shitty Satellite Honda.

Zarco probably would, but I would rather see Zarco and MM as teammates at KTM on equal machinery. The front row starts would be insane.

No but the chance of rain is astronomically higher in October...

That's exactly Ducati's plan. From what Ciabatti has been saying I think they are just looking for a comfortable B-plan for 2019 in case Lorenzo doesn't deliver what they expect. Rumor has it Miller will have a great treatment in terms of bike parts in order to be in the position to show his real potential on the bike.

The real question mark is Zarco. If he performs well I seriously doubt he'll be in Tech3 next year. I really wouldn't mind seeing him in HRC
