2018 Gran Premio Red Bull de Espaņa
 
Amidst all of the fighting going on here, we have a grand prix coming up this weekend from Jerez, newly resurfaced as well. HRC tested here recently so I think they may have an advantage knowing what setups are needed and how the tires will wear.

Marquez is a man on a mission since Rossi committed character assassination on him at Argentina so I am going to go with him for the win. Not sure about the rest of the podium.

We'll see what bullshit Kropo tries at the press conference. Maybe someone will be kind enough to punch him right in the mouth when he opens it.

Either way it should be a good race.

Marquez for the win here I think. As you said HRC testing here will be an advantage and from IIRC last year when a manufacturer tested at a track it was a huge advantage come race weekend. I think the fire that's burning in him to give a big fuck you to Rossi, his fans, the media and race direction is going to see him dominate this year now that he has the bike to do it on.
Pedrosa I think still won't be at a 100% so I don't think he will be able to fight for the win but if he does it just proves he's not really human. What I'm really interested to see is how Dovi and Vinales go, one of them has to assert themselves as the top man to take the fight to Marquez but I think ultimately both lose too many points on bad weekends win the fight.

Super excited that the racing is back this weekend though.

Testing at tracks yet to be raced on is a joke!
Hopefully the conditions will be completely different and we get a decent race.
Would love to see VR46 own MM93 on the last corner:ninja:

I'd like to have Claudia Schiffer on a dessert cart.

You mean do a Rossi ala 2005 again, man thats one step to far, maybe Kropo will say its time Rossi got a ban hahahahahahahahaha, pfft no chance.

I know Im in the minority here, but I really dont wish Rossi to die this weekend.

Im looking foward to this race specifically to see what Lorenzo does on one of his favorite tracks. If Dovi beats him or if he finishes out of the top 5, I think we can start talking about another Ducati career killer

Fucks sake guys. It's tiresome.

I don't want to see anyone die this or any weekend.

I want to watch some folk I don't know race round a track in Spain cos I usually find it enjoyable to watch.

I also used to enjoy chatting about it after, with actual friends and with people I don't know on a forum. I usually found the forum interesting but fucks sake guys well done on sucking every fucking ounce of fun out of it.

Who the fuck cares who your no1 is - life means that the no1 is probably different for lots of us.

Enjoy your sniping and bringing everything down to the same old shit. Have fun pissing each other off. I'm going to just watch the racing, the warm ups, the practices, every snippet I can find. I'm going to read stuff, no doubt on the internet, but I won't be reading pages and pages of bickering.

I think the M1s will thrive here as usual. But Marc has "extra motivation". That's can't be good for anybody else. I'm hoping Dovi gets his Duc on the podium, though I'm thinking it will be top 5. Lorenzo will battle for the midpack. Is it to early to predict Iannone will crash trying to repeat a good performance? Suzuki on the independent team podium.

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.

I think this is a make or brake it weekend for Lorenzo, is he has a bad race I think he car write off the rest of the season, and start looking for a new ride next season.... further down the Ducati pecking order, Jack miller, Tito Rabat, and Danilo Petrucci might all be fighting for a factory Ducati ride.
