I was going to ask what happened to Morbidelli, well he just got upgraded lol. Awesome.

I think Yamaha is glad that Mav's brain melted, perfect excuse to start working already for next year nice and early and also stop paying Mav bucks (also happily getting rid of stone in their shoe) which I imagine were more than Morbidelli bucks.

Great news. I'd love to see him come back in 22. Not as if he'll be challenging for the championship, but I'd expect him to be regularly in the top 10. I don't see him hanging around once he can't do that.

As much as I would love to see this I doubt it will happen. It seems like they are using the available seat for try outs. Dovi would be a fantastic signing but what would it benefit? Its not like he would be used for testing on a 2 year old machine. Neither of the srt machines will be factory next season. Dovi deserves better. Plus his manager is notorious for making stupid decisions.

I would like to see him back at honda to help turn that bike into a winner. Their current crop of riders aren't it. They need a vet to help balance that bike and make it something Marc can win on again. I am well aware that there is no chance of that but it would be in Hondas best interest.

Was thinking much the same. But, and mayhaps it's wishful thinking, finishing well in 21 if not leading to an M1 seat in 22 would serve as a showcase of his potential with a seat on another team that either hasn't filled a seat, or hasn't signed a contract and is still looking at options. Even being hired as a tester like Dani would be good. I love the idea of him on a Honda, but I suspect he'd meet the same fate as Lorenzo at Honda, where they take all his data and never follow up on any of his suggestions. HRC burned Dovi pretty good before. I'd expect him to be real wary of any offers from them.

I think Honda right now are incapable of admitting they did wrong so they will continue the same way using Bradl's & Co as testers, putting everything on Marc and hiring second fiddles in hopes they have "it".

They can always blame the soft tires.

Historically, that's been the case. One of the biggest taboos in Japanese culture is any behavior that potentially causes an awkward moment. Likewise, high ranking corporate types will always bald-facedly lie rather than admit wrong-doing. When they were clearly losing WWll Hirohito was begged by his generals to surrender, but the Emperor, worshiped literally as a god, insisted on continuing the war effort. 50 years later journalists held him responsible for the fact that had he not been criminally indifferent to the suffering of the Japanese people, and surrendered, there wouldn't have been the nightmarish consequences and mass deaths in Okinawa, and Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings would never have occurred. Those journalists that weren't imprisoned, were harassed, sometimes beaten by right-wing supporters of the government and black listed into poverty. And 89% of the public approved. Not admitting mistakes is a deeply ingrained facet of Japanese culture.

A lot of that comes from their strong tradition of following whatever the elder or chairman says, old people and CEO's (or emperors for that matter) are pretty stubborn and for sure don't admit mistakes very often, the rest as is tradition will just shut up and follow lead.

In my humble opinion that is.
