2019 final testing - Valencia, Jerez

So far it seems Yamaha is going to eat everybody else alive next year. Or will they eat each other and leave the title to Marc as usual?

They could have Fabio and Lil Top Gun switch bikes. Probably wouldn’t change Maverick’s results but could improve FQ’s. Or at least we wouldn’t be wondering what if.

Vinales and Rossi had new 2020 bikes/engines, more top speed. FQ will have the new spec bike in Jerez.

I think Rossi lost his 2020 bike for most of today due to a tech fault. Still the slowest Yamaha though

His performance remains good by most standards except his own former standards.

I really don’t know why he is continuing given his undoubted greatness though. My current theory is that Uccio has him convinced he would have won the 10th title and more except for malfeasance on MM’s part and lack of support from Yamaha. Unless Uccio is prepared to take a hit for the team and spend his life in jail after shooting MM to aid the cause, VR is simply not winning a title against MM from his own current resources however, in my strong opinion, and even in the event of an MM mishap he would still need to beat several other younger riders.

Uccio was trialing a new technique on Day 1 of the Valencia test, he was giving Rossi his left gove first rather than the right. He soon reverted back to their 'right glove first' tried and tested strategy after Rossi crashed his 2020 bike. Given this breakthrough outside of the box strategy/method/technology I'd keep watching this space closely, big things to come from Rossi in 2020. *taps nose

Big things for sure. I'm still wondering what this remark "the new team brought finally Yamaha support" means. If he didn't have Yamaha support till now then this is a mayor change for better indeed and the 10th title is practically in the bag.

Final two hours of day two testing is worth it just to listen to Neil Spalding.

It may well be like how this year ended. Bikes that are great over a lap and controlling the race from the front. However, difficult to overtake the bikes that are faster on the straights.
