Agree, Marc looked like he had to really work for that win at least compared to some of his others, it definitely wasn't a given.

It's a shame Quartararo Isn't getting a factory ride next year, it would be interesting to see just how much difference the latest spec Yamaha with the full factory support actually gives him.

I'm not sure of the rule and cost implications of Yamaha sporting a 3 bike factory team for 2020 but it would be worthwhile to ensure they retain him as a long term rider.

Doesn't have to sport the Yamaha colors to have FULL 100% factory support does it?

Why leave when set up is currently working? They have a filthy rich sponsor/owner, factory support, rider harmony and Wilco Zeelenberg running things.

I'd rather stay than join that toxic factory squad, with Lin Jarvis, a sourpuss team mate and a crew that can't set up a bike as well as a debut team despite being the ones who led development.

I don't know. He was stalking El Diablo and made a statement by devastating the kid on the last corner.

Btw, I don't hear any apologies towards Yamaha now that its clearly the pilots not being up to speed. There is nothing wrong with that bike, pretty sure its the best on the grid right now.

Flopsy & the other two complain of rear grip while Fabio had zero rear grip issues......

I hope Suzuki can find the cash & sign Fabio for 2021. Yamaha don't deserve a rider like him. After 2015, the way they treated Lorenzo. They yamaha deserve to have jarvis & rossi rot away in their garage for the Lorenzo treatment

They already bump his rpm up by 500, and have confirmed he is getting the same spec bike as the other 3 for next year. So more embarrassment for the T-shirt sales man. Or should I say another Lorenzo to steal setup data from. I wonder if the yellow nation is going to hate Fabio as much as they hate Marc.

MM sitting on Fab's tail the whole race long, was very calculated. Having MM on his back wheel the whole race long has to have an unnerving effect on him. Not slicing and dicing lap after lap saves everybody's tires, and limits risk for Marquez. You could definitely see the huge disappointment on Fabio's face in parc ferme. Getting beat by the best, is I imagine, cold comfort.

Everyone knew marc was gonna be champ this season. Tied rossi on 6 motogp titles. Dovi is pretty much set on 2nd. Wtf is lorenzo doing? And rossi? Dropped from 6th to 8th like nothing. Had to have made a mistake. And yama needs to get their shit together. Beaten by satellite yama again. Honda better drop lorenzo for jack miller. He can probably ride that bike like marc and yama better start working theri asses of to get back on track for 2020 with a competitive bike. Ducati needs a killer instinct rider. Neither dovi or petrux have that.

Don't know that Yamaha need half so much a better bike as they need better riders. After all this time Rossi is past his best-sold-by-date and Vinales still hasn't figured out how to make a good start and gets swamped by less experienced riders.

As to Miller going to Honda; I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Look at how beat up and dejected all the other Honda riders are. Marquez makes the bike look good. Of course it might just be that Fabs is doing the same with the Yamaha. Personally I'm psyched that a first year rookie on a customer bike is dicing it out regularly with MM. Want to make a Stoner comparison but wouldn't want to jinx the frog.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding is his bike was limited by 500 rpm in order to increase reliability because the team was only able to allocate 5 engines (as compared to 7 for other teams) for the season. And he's on #4 or #5, not sure which.
