I usually rely on the feeling in my left testicle in cases like this ... hmm, it does not foresee this coming.

I don’t see Dovi with the will or the hunger to fight for a championship or even the occasional win.

Sure, there are few riders in history who would have beaten MM with those last corner moves.

To be in a position to make those moves he needed what seems to have been JLís bike; Gigi for one who might be expected to have a decent perspective on same appeared to be of this view when the question of JL leaving Ducati arose. What probably retained the last vestiges of JLís input at Yamaha, the 2019 bike, gave every appearance of being superior to the 2020 factory bike as well.

Dovi was pressuring Marc prior to Jorge's arrival.
I accept Jorge may have eventually been superior but sorry, I am not attributing much of Dovi's performance to input from Lorenzo.
This year they have dropped the ball, but I am attributing a fair bit of that to a big change in the rear Michelin. It simply hasn't worked with Dukes so well. You could argue Dovi has lost interest too given his perceived lack of support from Ducati.

Would they not keep Bradl on if Marquez was out longer? Bradl was doing reasonably well towards the end of the season.

Only at certain tracks toward the end of the season. I think the Yamaha riders need to take the good with the bad. The 2020 bike seemed to perform better in the first half while the 2019 bike performed better in the second half. I know we have spoken about this quite a bit but I think with double ups and so many tracks that would normally be on the schedule, off the schedule itís hard to extrapolate how the 2020 bike would have gone if the season had been normal. Maybe it only performs worse at the tracks that it did during the second half of the season while performing better in the flyaways, Assen etc. maybe it doesnít. But I think there is a lot being read into an already strange season.
