Apparently 46000+KM of racing completed. Very odd how this number comes up in this way.

Anyway, a decent finish for Vale in his final race. It's been interesting indeed watching him race, as well as witnessing his many rivalries which contributed to generating, in huge numbers, his lovers, as well as in similar fashion, his haters. An icon as he is, will surely generate lovers and haters, the latter being remarkably prolific in this forum. I don't think it a coincidence.

It's been great to see his fellow sportsmen and likewise, great achievers (in whatever endeavour) appreciate him for who he is and what he has achieved and will continue to do for the sport. The bigger picture is certainly clear. Of course, there is and will always be a selfish aspect to all his efforts as it is for us all, but it's always nice when it's clearly dual as it has been for him. It's great to see Pecco and Franco hug Vale with genuine affection and appreciation.

That was a fun race.

Nice win again by Pecco. He's getting stronger in his racecraft. Fabio is palpably on the backfoot in defending his championship next year.

Jorge Martin... jeepers. To come from vomiting all night, his last meal being the day before at midday, and putting on the performance he did is stunning. There's a lot of promise in him.

Thriller Miller hunkered down and managed his tyres ... nice run to third.

It's been a great season. I enjoyed all of it. So many ups and downs. I've never seen a rider win a dry race early in the season and by season's end is qualifying last in a dry race.

On watching a quick season recap, I think Pecco would have won the championship if he had managed to finish all the races. He crashed too often. Now that he seems to be keeping things together more often, he's now ready for next year.

Well, if nothing else, he's been the source of years of lively debate here. As the honey that for so long drew in the flies/trolls, he created a kind of teaching lab wherein one could observe the effective and ineffective ways to repel trolls. Not to mention, a place to observe human nature, watching how people of greater intellect and possibly greater social skills than mine, are so often unable to resist the compulsion to reply with corrections to trolls, despite full well knowing it for a fruitless pursuit.

I guess that petition didn’t get enough signatures.

I don't think so, although possible as always, depending on the glasses one looks through.

Morbidelli's last 5 race finishes:
18th, 19th, 14th, 17th and 11th

Vale's last 5 finishes:
17th, 15th, 10th, 13th and 10th

It seemed like he just finished ahead of Morbidelli again.

'Whatever' is right since I had no idea about those finishes until I looked at them specifically just now. Your sandbagging claim had me curious. I was wondering the same thing myself, but Vale's pace in the race was genuinely quite decent.

Encouraged to see Jack make the tyres last and have speed at the end of the race.
Martin very impressive.
Pecco is favourite for next year at this point imo.

Unless Yamaha make a quantum leap power-wise, which history has shown they’re not likely to do.

Well the engine development has been on hold for the last two years, so I think they will all come out with more power.

With Remy and Raul in the KTM team next year, we will see if it is the bike or the riders, that KTM were having trouble with this year.
