Phillip Island is a strange circuit, but Marquez must be the favourite.

Every manufacturer should be in contention here.

The Ducati is good here (see AI in 2015), as are the Yamahas and Hondas. Even the Suzuki was battling for the win last year.

Ducati's weren't brilliant here last year. It was really the beginning of the end for Dovi's title hunt.
Some great battles involving the others though.

Stoner was good at PI on the Duc but besides that they have been very hit or miss, mostly miss as the long super fast sweepers is still their bugaboo. This year the Duc has been good on almost all the tracks, PI will tell on them f they still have a mid corner turn issue.

But the Yamaha's are even worse than last years, they were a disaster at Motegi.

Dovi has never been good at PI on the Ducati, and he was rarely good at PI on the Honda or Yamaha too. Look at AD vs AI in 2015 for an illustration.

At this moment Ianonne crapped himself - he thought the seagull was bad but now we send in the Wallaby

I'm going to go for MM win, Cal 2nd, and a wild guess, Rins (no don't ask, but I like him and he's done well since his return)
I was remiss, Cal HAS played a role in the constructors title, Dani has done nothing for the team title and Honda will more than likely win it.
