That’s it. He doesn’t seem to be up to any ‘mind games’ off track manipulation this year.

I had the same thought as birdman, I think he is some chance. The young guys could all implode, and Vinales is too inconsistent. He is also up against Dovi though who might also back his way into a title by means of guile and consistency while lacking the outright pace of the younger riders.

Would love to see Dovi win it and still tell to Ducati to get stuffed.

Absolutely agree with this. I always thought that if Rossi was going to win a title in the twilight years of his career it would more likely be down to patience and consistency instead of outright raw speed. The same could be applied to Dovi. Does anybody know the least amount of victories anyone has ever clinched the title with? 2020 is 2020 after all.

Ncky won with 2 race victories, but I think there is a fair chance he might have managed a 3rd win in the last race which Bayliss won had he needed the points.

I think Mir should probably be championship favourite now. Most top 5 finishes this year. If not for what happened at the second red bull race he would be leading the championship.

Long lap penalty
How to spoil a blokes race and knock him out of championship lead.

Was going to post the same. Brilliant late race pace again, I would really like to see another Suzuki world champion given their tradition in the sport, and he is a great young rider and a real racer with his passes.

The week I move Maverick from a gold to silver rider in my fantasy team and he goes and wins the race. Still, I swapped him with Mir so not all bad!

Just don't ride on the green bits. They replaced all the grass and gravel etc with bitumen so they need to have some kind of penalty for riding over what would have been grass or gravel.

If it was grass or gravel with the amount of green he ran over it would have been far call of a penalty, not slower at all.
Twas shite imo
