So lets presume he fails in 2, there's nobody who can catch him.
Dovi is making to many mistakes and I'll tell you why I think that is, he's married with a baby.

Dovi Grammar Faerie reporting for duty:

He has a girlfriend but he is not married, and has a 11 year old daughter that he had with his previous girlfriend. No other babies on the way at the moment

Don't have a lot of time unfortunately, so I'll be brief. My quick 2 cents about what happened today:

- Lorenzo: a racing incident. Sucked to see it as the race would have been amazing IMHO, but these things happen. Anyone thinking he did it on purpose should not have access to freedom of speech.

- Marquez: got lucky, but was blazing fast as well. The fact that him being that consistently fast is not news makes it even more impressive.

- Rossi/Vinales: could have both been podium contenders, but we'll never know.

- Rins: loved his attitude. He was all in. I don't like his riding style in terms of pure look, but he sure knows how to be fast and how to put up a fight for a position. My props.

- Petrucci: all in as well, he got also lucky as a lot of competition got taken out, but despite that, well deserved podium.

- Quartararo: put him on a Suzuki!!!

- Dovi: no reason to be pissed. Marquez is just too good. The title was sorta "gone" already, by that I only mean...it would currently be impossible to beat MM through a whole season.


That'd be it for now.

Heresy! He looks like Schwantz' illegitimate love child plonked on a Suzuki with that riding style. All neck and shoulders.

Coolest rider out there IMO. Bringing back the old school...

If 37 points is totally insurmountable with 12 races left then so was 12. Just sayin. Vinales has carried on like the championship is over for Dovi now. If one crash means your out of the title hunt against Marquez, with the closeness of the field and the inconsistency (compared to Marquez) of the other top riders then it was clearly always a fight for second in the championship.

IMO a close championship = exciting is overrated anyway. Great races make a season exciting for me. We will likely be treated to more of those than close seasons like 13 or 15. The butthurt comes from those upset that Marquez has taken another step closer to winning another championship against what Rossi fans know deep deep down, is a more level playing field and stronger competition while showing the same dominance as Rossi did without the advantages.

Just wait. Marc got lucky with this one and no, marc wasnt going to win anyway if that never happened. Just got lucky. Like Jerez a few years ago.

It was not Dovi fault, Jesus Christ, what are some of you smoking? It doesn't deserve a comment anyway, MM overtake Dovi breaking really late, in fact Dovi backed off a bit to avoid contact, MM got wide in the corner after where Dovi would enter inside overtaking again. Lorenzo thought he could enter too.

Lorenzo was over his limit with the bike. He does not made it on purpose, obviously, he is a very correct person in this regard, but he was crazy to proof his new ergonomic pieces had worked and was clearly much over his limit.

I don't think MM would lost this WC to Dovizioso, the Rubens Barrichelo of moto, but title was very far from being over. MM could fall, the new Honda engine could "blow" (causing issues on the bike), etc... many things can happen over the course of the championship. Even now the WC is far from being over, albeit I really doubt Dovi will have the motivation needed to push over the limits towards the title.

Marquez is racing alone this year, all he needed was a bit better machine to dominate the class and so that's it. At least we have hope for next year to get back to exciting times, Fabio Quartararo. I wish Yamaha could sort out the rest of its problems, even helping Rossi that is the only one capable of disturbing MM psyche. With a 1 sec faster machine, Rossi can fight for the win some weekends and this would cause a massive shake up in the sport, surely affecting MM's head.

I feel sorry for Ducati not having an alien rider, not even in the insight. But instead of wasting their life looking for another MM/Stoner, it would be better they make their bike turn a bit more. GP15 seems to have hit its top, maybe now it's time for a revolution again, specially in the engine layout. This surely would widen the list of new possible aliens. A desmodromic inline 4 would be very nice to hear, who knows.


Championship wasnt over and it isnt over either. 12 races to go and fuck knows what will happen. Marc, lorenzo, dovi, petrux, rossi, mav, crashlow, miller, rins, Quartararo. They can all fuck it up for each other and steal points. Far from over, even tho marc is leading.

The championship isn't over until the points on offer is less than the gap between the protagonists ......... simple.

Many years ago Mick Doohan had 130 or so points with the nearest competitor some 65 points back after 7 rounds, then came Assen and Doohan missed out on the world title by 4 points come years end 6 races later.

Shit can happen ............ this championship is far from over
