Oh look, piggyback Wally is back in action.

Probably would kill you if you actually had to talk about racing.

You're probably too busy bitching and moaning to notice that I discuss racing all the time. Either that or you are too busy taking out your aggression by stomping palmetto bugs. I mean, that's why you moved to Florida, right?

There was BTW, very little really to discuss for the last race. Like you, it was boring and predictable.

If we look at the races left and try and decide if Marquez can extend his lead or Rossi/Vinales can close the gap in each race I would think it would look something like this.
Brno - Marquez has the better form here than both Rossi and Vinales but I think it's anyone's race
Austria - Marquez and the Ducatis should be well ahead of the Yamaha
GB - best race to close the gap though Marquez still has a decent record here and might've won last year
SanM - same above
Aragon - Marquez clear favourite, has an excellent record here
Thailand - track layout should favour Ducati and Marquez over the Yamahas
Japan - same as above though Yamaha has a decent record here so could pull some points back
PI - Marquez favourite but the Yamaha could win.
Malaysia - depends on the weather but I don't think if it's hot or if it's raining. which are the only two options really it doesnt favour the Yamaha over the Ducs or Marquez
Valencia - Marquez favourite to beat both Yamahas

It's going to have to be IMO a huge change in form for Rossi or Vinales to close the gap to Marquez. Even if he crashes out twice I don't see the Yamahas getting more points than him down the stretch given his recent form both this year and the last couple at the majority of these tracks.

Edit to add: I refrained from saying tracks or conditions favoured the Honda because over the year apart from Marquez all other riders have been beaten by Ducati and/or Yamahas at every round with exception of Argentina.

Horhay seems to be back to where he was, get out front then drop back, what happened to the winning form?

The yamahas are getting stronger, will they bridge the gap to Marc?

What happened to Dovi, will he get back on track at the horsepower tracks like the Red Bull Ring?

Bautista's refound form, will it be enough to keep him in the big class, or will the SIC/Petronas Yam go to Quatararo?

With all the post-Argentina promise of penalties from Race Direction, should Pol Esp' have been punished.

Whilst I realise that most of these aren't directly from the content of the race itself, they are certainly questions that stem from the race and are note worthy of discussing, (IMHO of course).

All you got Wally?

You're as predictable as acne on a teenager's face.

Unsurpringly basically nothing has changed post-Argentina which was expected by most I think.

You're right, mate, it did turn out to be a bit of a damp squib. Which, to an extent, has weakened the public image of race direction.

What happened to Dovi is a mystery, but many here, as early as end of season last year, predicted he would not repeat his performance in 2018. Disappointing as that is, it seems to be true.

Most here never thought Lorenzo would get a third win, and it doesn't seem to be the case. He just isn't able to make the tires last and continues to be incapable of dealing with the fact that the Ducati's can't be ridden like a Yamaha. He's not going to be happy on the Markycycle next year either. Nobody much is.

The Yamahas have struggled all season, as they did last year. No surprise there. Their situation is more a topic of it's own, as it's an ongoing situation, rather than a race related event.

Bautista had a great weekend. I loved that. Was a big fan of his in the 250 class, but it was an anomaly. Back to normal after the break I think.

Race direction chaos, nothing new. Same shit, different day.

Interesting topics, but the race per se, not so much.
