    correct i think it is a lack of traction that leads to the lack of edge grip as the race wears on

    this is going to be VERY interesting, on many levels.Contractual issues,pre emptive contractual wordings,Yamaha,Honda,KTM,Dorna,will all have an iron in the fire.
    If Zarco does well it will make Honda think.Ktm will want to know.Yamaha will want to know .Dorna will want Zarco to do well.

    Very interesting, if Zarco clicks with the Honda.
    Horhay and Crashalot will have a bit of pressure on them.

    You'd never go hungry with Nigella Gaz.
    If it weren't for flashbacks...I'd have no memory at all..

    Wrong Honda to click with though; its the 18 bike with the solid front end not the 19 bike with the razor sharp edge.

    So that was my original point. It has issues with edge grip that seemingly doesn't effect FQ so much due to him being at less of a lean angle. So we are agreed on the fact it appears to have edge grip issues, regardless of why (I never stated a 'why')?

    yes that is my conundrum too ,why can he seem to make it work a) for a qualifying run(where Mv can be very fast)

    and b make it last the whole race(or n-1 laps any way )

    One of the suggestions is that looking at the data shows he doesn't have the bike so far on the edge compared to the other Yamaha riders.

    It may cost him next year though. Yamaha want a test rider and may not wait another month or so for Zarco to decide. Would Honda have a spot next year for him? If Lorenzo bails would they want a replacement who once said he rides like Lorenzo? Would Puig want a temperamental Frog in the garage? It could be a replay of Fenati at VR46...

    I reckon Johann has had a conversation with Yamaha and has something sorted to replace Folger next year, and he'll be able to update Yamaha about the Honda.

    It will be the '18 Honda though. Ancient history by MotoGP standards.

    It has been reported that Crutchlow is preparing to bow out. Being in constant pain can't be much fun.

    yeah mate, they don't have that on their own.
    Just about all my mates suffer after a lifetime of motorcycles.
    As well I have played lots of Squash

    wait till Crashlow is 70, we'll see how he feels
