Valencia final round

A Ducati front row.
Mir fastest in the warm-up.

Looking forward to it.
Should be a close race I hope

Espargaro not riding in the race because of his nasty high side practice crash.

How often do we see both riders for a team sidelined due to injuries?

The Ducati’s are looking supreme.

Valentino can smile that he had a decent qualifying at least. I suspect he will crash trying to maintain his position or fall down the order to get to the finish.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Martin holds it together and gets the win, but my bet would be on Pecco. The ducati’s have certainly been supreme this season. Fabio should be even more proud of his achievement this season. The might of the effort becomes clear when you see the fall in his and his team’s performance once he got the championship.

Agree. FQ seems to have well out ridden his bike, the Ducati looks to be the faster bike, he obviously really pushed in qualifying since running away in front was the main way he was able to win.

Yamaha have won the championship.
Not looking so good at the end of the season.
More work needed.

Safe to say Ducati is no longer the underdog.

Complete Ducati domination - haven't laughed so much since Bayliss won here on his wild card ride in 2006. Really fancy Martin as a title contender next season.

So I guess it's only right to mention it. Final race today. Years of entertainment, one of the most amiable riders to ever grace the sport, but pleased to say that he, along with his influence will still remain in the paddock if not the track. Thank you for the memories and we wish you well in your retirement Thomas Luthi.

Seriously though. Without question the nicest, most likeable and noble Italian rider of all time. It simply won't be the same without him. But I'm sure there isn't any genuine fan of this sport that won't be rooting for Danilo Petrucci in next year's Dakar.

Great to see Mauro Noccioli highlighted this weekend. Didn't even know he was still in the paddock.








Oh and...cheers Vale. Might compile a top ten of my favourite races.

You know very well that Vale and his cronies will be there in the paddock for years, specially since Carmelo gifted them their own team. Uccio as the new Jarvis, imagine the sight.

Thank you Valentino for the memories. I'm not his greatest supporter, but he has been a constant for over %90 of my GP race viewing. Thanks for your service to motorcycle racing.
