    So how come Bautista was just so invincible and then it stopped? Did someone sabotage the bike or something? I know they knobbled the rpm but should that have affected the handling that bad he then crashed so often.

    Weirdest season I've ever seen.

    i am just as bewildered...Chaz never got to grips with the bike really either.Then to top it off Bautista leaves???.Its unbeleiveable, what a turnaround.Tenacity by Rea, a real unravelling for AB

    Umm “Bautista leaves” gives a misleading impression. Ducati signed somebody else, leaving him without a ride until Honda signed him.

    Haven't Ducati signed Redding, he must have something I haven't seen ?
    Doing ok in BSB I suppose. (if that's a plus ?).

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

    Apparently the contract negotiations started earlier in the season when Bautista was still undefeated so his manager had a sky high asking price. That price was seen by Ducati as way too high once the wheels fell off. So they signed Redding.

    Still, I'd be surprised if Redding did better than Bautista. Or as well.

    Ducati seem to have a fraught relationship with their riders in both paddocks.

    Lol, it is the Italian way, much like Vettel has run into with Ferrari in F1.

    Yeah, we certainly never saw anything of note from him in MotoGP did we Gaz!

    Haslam announced as team-mate for Bautista in new HRC team onboard new CBR1000RR-R.
    As someone said, Does that come with a parrot or sword?

    Heck hard to keep up with all the ship jumping. I thought Camier would be his team mate but looks like he is going to Ductai..
    This article is a good overview:

    2020 is shaping up to be an interesting season esp with the new CBR in the mix. Bring it on.
