Could also be that Zarco put all that pressure on himself to win in France, fucked up and haven’t felt confident ever since.

Zarcos only problem is he signed with KTM. No more extra revs, no more additional factory support = mid pack results.

He is going to the Factory KTM though, so he should get better support. Having said that, I agree with you in relation to the results. He could be a regular top ten though.

Lol. Zarco gets the same factory support as he did at the start of the year. Which is a bike better than what Tech 3 usually gets and that’s it. There has never been any ongoing factory support for satellite riders and Zarco is no exception.

Nah, mate. Rossi has been walking into garage at night and rubbing extra virgin olive oil on Zarco's tyres - all with Lin Jarvis and Carmelo's permission.

According to this, Ducati should do the same with #99, at least, that's what some people say but I don't buy that, there's so much involved on the motogp circus, teams need as many pionts as they can get.
They've gone through Muggelo and Montmelo, 2 similar circuits where #99 nailed it and #05 "failed".
Eager to see what will happen next

This could well happen if Ducati still feel Dovi is their preferred rider to battle for the championship. The immediate reaction from Tardozzi and Ciabatti after Lorenzo won was hardly unrestrained joy and a clear indication that the wrong rider took the victory.
If Jorge continues to outpace Dovi, itíll depend how much Ducati feel heís got a chance to catch Marc and how much they want to take a championship with an outgoing rider.
Itís been a difficult situation, but I feel Ducati managementís impatience (and sometimes blatant insults towards their rider to the press) has created a real dilemma for the remainder of the season. Their criticism of Lorenzo to the press sometimes has been over the top, I get it might be they felt it was the correct way (considering their large investment and Doviís 2017) to ďmotivateí Lorenzo, but how many times has Jarvis or Puig been out in front of the BT Sports cameras slating Maverick or Daniís struggles?
Maybe the Japanese restraint is better, and motivation and certain discussions are better kept behind closed doors?
Did you mean #04? Zarco is #05 buddy.

This doesn't make much sense, so by your desire ... if you crash out you'll be even further behind because the winner would get even more points ("bigger reward") ... so I'm assuming you're a Marquez fan who is a crash or win kinda rider, your "bigger reward" system would make it worse for Marquez, not better so it would discourage crashing out and pushing harder because you lose more points.
