2019 Phillip Island - Pramac Generac Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix
 
One of my favourite rounds of the year has arrived, I won't be there this year unfortunately.

With the championship decided now hopefully this round can produce some entertainment with a good scrap for the win. Given that Maverick won here last year, this may be the round that Fabio takes his first premiere class win.

I agree. I feel Fabio will be able to break to the front, and run his high corner speed lines and be able to out pace Marquez.

The repsol honda will have enough for him into the hairpin and down the straight, but hopefully FQ will be able to get his first victory.

Even apart from that, MM is not unknown to DNF at PI.

how bout Jack Miller? I think he learned a lesson with the tires last week, this is his home round, and he is riding the best bike he has ever ben on.

What worries me about Jack's race was that he was mystified about what happened to his tyres. He seems to struggle with tyre longevity with this years tyres as some of the other riders do, namely Morbidelli and VR.

Hypothetical. 2012 Phillip Island. Pedrosa is a chance for the championship still. He goes down on lap 2. IF he doesn't crash, does Stoner play wingman? Keeping Lorenzo one position back, or does Casey fight for the win regardless of Pedrosa's title aspirations?

Absolutely Stoner goes for the win.
Hooray, the most important weekend of the year is upon us.

what got me is that they went with the soft/soft on jack's bike for the race, even though his longest stint on that set up was 17 laps (thats not a full race)... obviously the thinking is to be fast early in the race, but with all the passing and defending, the tires dont last as long.

He is fairly dominant at PI but doesn’t have the record to prove it. Got taken out last year by an out of control Zarco where he was probably the favorite to win. In 13 he got penalized while having considerably better pace than Lorenzo. Crashed another year with a 4 second lead. I wouldn’t bet against him this round.

FP1, Zarco is faster than Crutchlow! Well, he is 2.1 seconds off Vinales ...
