2019 Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana

Another season gone by. Crazy. Been an interesting year. Disappointed that Dovi fell behind so badly and so soon in the season. Fabs has been a revelation. Already looking forward to seeing how he grows in 2010. With nothing in the news to indicate otherwise, looks like we're stuck watching "He who's name must not be mentioned" drift around in 11th place for yet another year.

Predictions for Valencia?

I hope the weather is better than last year. That was miserable. Though I did enjoy watching Rins win a race.

There are still some people on the grid with something to prove and Marc Marquez will make it his business to deny those riders an opportunity to do so.

Weren't that bad. Not one flag-to-flag all season. Really no rain races in MotoGp at all. Well Britain . . .but Silverstone is not a race I miss anyhow.

Cue irritable response.

Interesting. He certainly seems keen to thwart FQ, to his own detriment last race. Perhaps he doesn’t see Vinales as a threat, or maybe just has a good relationship with his countryman and wasn’t motivated to crash trying to beat him. I am fairly sure as someone who is a keen student of the history of the sport who has already re-enacted the Corkscrew incident and the Jerez 2005 last corner “pass” he likely has an undeclared Gibernau curse going on Valentino and would have been prepared to crash trying to beat him if he rather than MV was in a position to win the Sepang race. I hope he doesn’t carry things too far though, the thing with FQ was not particularly smart imo.

I think Marc will go all in at Valencia, he'll want to secure the team championship to really rub it in to Jorge, currently Honda trail Ducati by only 2 points in that space. If having a good scrap with Fabio needs to happen in the process I think it will only encourage him.

Mind you id really like to see Fabio take a win in his rookie season.

He'll likely go for the win, I expect, simply because that's what he's built to do.
IMHO - I Lorenzo is pretty much at the bottom of the list of things he's concerned with. My guess is Lorenzo can't be made to feel much lower than he currently is.

As has been said before, I think in time the win-or-bin scenario (which is much tempered compared to early years) will be his downfall. But it's fun as shit to watch him now.

Jorge seems to be keen on helping to achieve the triple crown. https://es.motorsport.com/motogp/new...honda/4594125/

He hardly crashes in races now, it is in practice when he is more or less deliberately exploring the limits when he comes unstuck. He is probably even now more likely to crash in races after the championship is decided however, as was definitely the case as recently as 2016.
