Yes, and now Quartararo is the next one. And Rossi seems to be "the extra guy" at the party. OTOH, I'd love to see Quartararo going to Ducati and making himself a title contender there. It would be good for the show, three racers fighting for the title on three different bikes.

I Ride: A bicycle. Heehee
I think Yamaha is after Fabio as well. It's not unusual for them to have two title contenders in the same team.

I don't think Fabio could ride the Ducati.

Ducati is now really on a bad situation. They invested buttloads of money and smoked so much tobbaco in order to be champion and it's really sad there was a Marquez in their way. Maybe they should call Lorenzo and make a chat about 2021, but before that they must make sure Domenicali is fired.

One thing is for sure: another boring season ahead (and so on). Looking forward for 2026.

I think Ducati really wanted Maverick, now they may be in a bad position. how long does Dovi have left? Petrucci doesnt seem like he is going to do anything. Jack has shown sparks of potential, and likely deserves a factory ride. though no one else seems able to compete on the Ducati. might they go after Marquez, seriously?

Poaching Marquez would mean Honda has no competitive rider and Alex will be high and dry, too. The only thing Ducati has to offer is the glory of winning title on a different brand. I don't believe money is the factor here. Marc cares about his brother, it makes it very hard to tempt him over.

Looks like yamaha may have finally grown a pair of balls> https://www.motorsport.com/motogp/ne...nales/4677939/

If this is true hope jarvis is shown the door with the T-shirt sales man.

OK, so now we have extremely strong Yamaha, one-man Honda, Ducati with lots of bikes but not very strong pilot-wise and Suzuki with Rins who's personal ECU (the unit between ears) keeps malfunctioning and Mir who is apparently not a wonder kid.
It will be Marquez against Vinales then.
Marques' weakness is his shoulder.
Vinales needs to sort out his starts and early race pace.
Quartararo needs to improve his strategy to threaten the top spot, it may be harder than he thinks.

LOL.. Ducati is fucked...congratulations to Domenicali who drew this scenario the moment he rejected Lorenzo.

Well, maybe we all could chip in to convince Stoner to be back, at least for a single year.
