Baring a rain repeat ala 2017 - pretty much everyone's money is on Marquez for the win.

Nope.

He just needs to finish within 2 points of Dovi (ie. if MM finishes 15th, Dovi needs to be no higher than 13th) and Rossi must not win the race.

100 points on offer.
He leads Dovi by 77 points
He leads Rossi by 99 points

By 5th I meant if he was 5th and the others are behind him then he's won anyway. sorry for the confusing question but I'm under chemotherapy atm and the old brain is drifting a bit.

Basically if he finishes ahead of Dovi he wins the title unless they are battling for 5 th instead of their normal podium spots.

Dude, you have all the luck. I'm struggling with PT three times a week for shoulder broken in three places and smashed up elbow. I recall your situation, and stop my bitching. Especially 'cause it was my own fault. Anyhow... hang in there Mate. Really glad yer still here.

I'm glad my pt is finished for now as I'm told I'm ahead of the curve for the new leg, still do my exercises every day for 2 hours on a walking frame, mostly for upper body strength as its shit when you fall over lol.
My weight which was normally round the 210-215lb mark is higher now at 230 and rising, what with the drugs and exercise.

You'll get there eventually and wonder how you managed I know I do.

I don’t know man, that may be Honda’s home track but the high speed braking and acceleration points, look at the Ducs being strong here. Basically the Honda and Duc are strong everywhere ,but like you said it’s hard to bet against Marc on any track.
