    yeah , he has contact with lots of people.

    Come on, this sort of thinking is a bit lame isn't it?

    There are races with all of the fit riders present. Riders who are injured are out, just like in any other season.
    They are racing across different circuits and countries, more than back in the earlier eras, when no one wanted to put any *'s on any season.
    The riders are putting as much or more into it, because this season there is the chance for more than one rider to win it and they all want it, immensely.

    I just fail to see why anyone has to try and diminish it at all. Watch and enjoy for the spectacle of sporting skill and mechanical genius that is on show and stop doing the typical Kiwi bullshit of diminishing everything.
    So it is a condensed season. So what?
    Marquez would be out of contention regardless, as he crashed and got injured. Like any other rider can and has done.

    Next it will be "Oh he is not really world champion" or some such crap. Makes me want to pull out what little hair I have left.

    Joe Roberts separates from American Racing

    Although he said in his interview that it is all happy and amicable, the debacle in front of the world on the grid and in the garage at Le Mans will have played a major part in the decision.
    There is no way that it can not have.
    For that team to have screwed that up so royally is unbelievable.
    How can they have not managed that? A shock and wheel change?
    Every other team managed it.
    Sure, they are all learning and are a low resources team, but come on.
    Hopefully they will do better in 2021.
    Would be great to see Cam Beaubier come and give it a nudge (increasing the # of Red Bull Rookies on the grid). And another American alongside him. Rocco Landers perhaps? That would be good, if he is up to it.
    Probably a bit early for him. Maybe Paasch or Kelly?
    But I guess Ramierz brings $ to the team.

    It's more that it is a shortened condensed season, without the usual amount of testing etc, in unusual circumstances, and so on.

    The * would be to say this championship was run under xyz conditions, which were not normal, and unique. I mean, we dont really know what secrets and conspiracies will come out of this years steaming pile of wombat doo

    Was there racing? Is there going to be someone with the most points at the end of the season? Then it's a championship with an eventual champion. Simple.

    Yes, but I still think it is a season with an asterisk.

    Bull shit.
    What we are seeing is the craziest motogp season ever, whoever wins it will be remembered as one of the greats for overcoming such a difficult season.

    My opinion is that the absence of Marquez is only 30% of the strangeness this season, the rest is down to a new tyre, racing at circuits outside their usual temperature zone and the most competitive field of riders and bikes we have ever seen.

    At season's end there will be a winner and that name goes in the book. Sure the season has been different, but in other ways there have been greater challenges than normal. The winner will get the gold medal whoever it is.

    Honda might be wondering if they haven't stuffed up?

    Sarcasm?

    If Honda have bikes anywhere near competitive next year, there is going to be some epic races

    Repsol dropped Marquez A and signed Espagero P for 2021. It's starting to look as if they may have dropped a clanger.
