    Best news in ages. Be good to see him back on track, will most definitely rock the boat.

    Sweet.
    This is going to be really interesting.

    Sitting impatiently to see what Dovi thinks of the RS-GP
    I think Aleix with him could bring that bike further up as a team.

    Just imagine if we could have MM and Dovi back in the seat for the next GP

    Tyre's: Michelin have got to do better its looking like only one tyre worked at his last track "the soft" and if your bike didnt suit it you where stuffed.

    Whats the bets on MM.
    I reckon a feeling out GP but knowing him he will be caning it he knows no other way.

    Rossi- personally if he can fade out like you rise up the ranks when starting. Like around top 10 go for it!
    Slipping slowly out that's fair enough. I don't agree with having to quit if you cant win if your enjoying your racing.
    But if he's down at 3rd to last - time to retire and treat the rest of the year as a calibration of his time in GP racing.

    Comments boys this thread has been far to quiet.
    On a Motorcycle you're penetrating distance, right along with the machine!! In a car you're just a spectator, the windshields like a TV!!

    Swings and roundabouts. The winner was on the same tyre as the others.
    The whole rational of the Michelin change was to slow the bikes and get closer racing. The slowing part worked for a while anyway.

    A good article by Mat Oxley here. https://www.motorsportmagazine.com/a...p-tyres-part-1

    I think ultimately we're at a point with tyres that the bikes are just too powerful, they only way I see to improve it is to bring back the factory electronics, which would fuck the sat teams again... So status quo is fine for me I guess.

    Pics for this weekend:

    Miguel is gunna come out swinging, he dominated last year but I think most the riders won't have liked that so would have added that track to their training list over the break and gone and put in some more laps there perhaps negating his local advantage a bit

    Brad Binder, crashed out last year so we never got to see his form, looked good in practice though so maybe he'll show his stuff and give Olivera a run

    Jack Miller, was a close 2nd to Olivera last year and with more laps under his belt might be good to go, hard to say what his form will be like this year though as the last 2 races have been a bit weird.

    Throw in a newly returned Marquez, a Pol Espagaro who's looking good on the Honda, a hungry factory Yamaha team and once again I have no fucking idea who's going to win this weekend.

    Bring it on.

    Think it was Clifford who suggested, hold on, maybe it was Webb, 4 gears. That would limit power and favour spread.
    Then reintroduce 500 2T with 6 gears free tyres and electronics so at least us closed minded bigots could get boners over the sound.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    500cc 2t you say? Why stop at 500cc, I want full prototype 1000cc 2t GP bikes, might need to strap the riders to them and fit wheelie bars though

    I'd say the last bloke to win it has a decent chance. But I have no idea what Marquez might do.

    ,,,no one has any idea of what could happen...all conjecture and wishes!..the tyres and the mindset will prevail...nothing else will prevail...broken engines and brakes make plans alter radically too...looking forward to more surprises...or not...

    I think we got the answer we all expected on his final lap in FP2. Then he says the front end is still a problem!
