After practice and qualifying, I can’t really see anyone other than Morbidelli taking the win. I think Mir and Rins can make up considerable places but whether they can get on the podium, I’m not sure. Perhaps top 5. I’d love to see Nakagami get a podium but I’ve been saying that for weeks. He’ll probably come 4th again. Miller is talking up his race chances but I’m not sure I can see him on the podium either. Pol Espargaro I think could make 3rd again or even 2nd, with maybe one of the other KTMs joining him on the podium. I’m going to go Morbidelli 1st, Pol 2nd, Olivera 3rd, Nakagami 4th, Mir 5th, Rins 6th, Binder 7th!

If there's one thing you can say for sure, it's pole position more often than not is not a great predictor of final results. If it's dry, I expect there will be at least on Suzuki on the podium.

Handy to have at Valencia though. Mir is a great decisive passer however, so less of a problem for him, and I too would expect a fairly high finish from him in the dry. FQ and Rins are down the grid with him anyway, all he needs to do to clinch the championship is beat them, even finishing close to them would probably suffice.

I do think Mir will win the championship today. Maybe he can scrape a 3rd place, I don’t see him getting higher than that though, being so far back at the start.

I think just more proof Fabio doesn’t handle pressure well. He might not even finish on the championship podium now.

Kudos Mr M1r...
Great race as well !



How bad does Vinales wish he'd not left Suzuki?

More like how stoked are Suzuki that he left. Vinales wouldn’t have won the title this year no matter what bike he was on. If Vinales didn’t leave then Suzuki would probably be running with him and Rins.

What a team Suzuki is though. Excellent management and engineers make up for a lack of budget.

Amazing to see Suzuki back on the podium again.

Congrats to Mir of course.

And feckin' great last lap dogfight w Morbi and Miller.

I expect Fabio would have done much better if he'd not been blessed with a 2020 M1.

Sorry to Nakagami go down.
