Marquez will win this title. He was scarily dominant.

At least they should allow for engine development. That would help Yamaha and Suzuki.
That formula you speak of was before spec electronics & tires! Folks like you bitch about how unfair it was for others back then.

Vinales should ask Yamaha to end his contract at the end of the season and go back to another team where he doesn't have someone like the t-shirt salesman.



I was really pleased for Oliveira, only one and a half tenths behind P. Asparagus and a top 10 finish in his rookie year, wonder how long it'll take him to make Asparagus look ordinary.
And how exactly the shirt guy is responsible for Maverick performance?

If Rossi can address a problem with poor starts in his late 30s, I don’t see why Viñales can’t. I hold out no hope for him at Yamaha if he can’t, and he has had a more than adequate period of time to do so.

To add further to the aero discussion is the fact that if one is to ban or try to restrict aero, then one must include the riding gear as the helmet design and also the suit hump have both been termed as assisting aero over the years so any one who starts, will they be able to stop it.

His poor race craft along with his poor starts mean despite being the best at practising in the world he won't be able to turn that into consistent results. I said it at the start of the 2017 season and I still maintain, his inability to outrace his peers when he has a similar pace to them means he won't win a championship.
We go on about Rossi being a sunday man etc. But I would believe that it's better to qualify just inside the top 10 and make an excellent start and give yourself a good position going into t1 than qualifying on the front row dropping a bunch of places and being at others mercy going into t1.

This is where it gets difficult. Gigi seems to have basically designed something that does cool the rear tyre which he can prove does so, but is aerodynamic as well. They banned the winglets which i didn’t like anyway on safety grounds, but as I said earlier without thinking of the very salient point you make about the safety gear the riders wear can they really insist all such devices have to be aerodynamically null or negative, and will Aldridge be given a wind tunnel to test and police this ?.

I gather Petrucci is not in great favour for his perhaps disingenuous comment.

Great race, Marquez made the others look amateur! Rossi showing he still has it, did an amazing job to keep Dovi behind with the straight line differential. Rins thoroughly impressive in the race too. Jorge? Not so much. Hope he gets it together soon.

Wings, biplane style appendages, hollow boxes. Lots of names they could be called. Lets go back to the style of bike pre 2015.

I expect he's moaned and groaned at yamaha and they've done something. Vinales said there was something wrong with the bike in the race.
