    Nah, just having a little fun reminiscing about Ducati's greatest business decisions.

    That was a really good qualifying session. Fabio was really pushing Marc right up to the end. Lots of hand wringing about slower riders though. I wonder if Petrucci's crash wasn't related to his frustration about being slowed down the lap before. If so, that was a painful mistake to make. Hopefully he's okay and will be back for the race. Nakagami though, that guy wins the Ironman award for the year. That has to be disheartening to the factory Ducatis when the satellite Honda with one leg is faster than they are. Lots of work to do tomorrow.

    MM
    Vinales
    Rins
    I dunno. T1 has been claiming Yamahas left and right. Hopefully they were just following Marc's lead and finding the limit early. But I think FQ has it over MV. Don't see anyone really challenging the top 3 in the dry.

    Dry:
    MM
    FQ
    MV
    Rins

    Wet:

    Gonna almost go with your dry predictions, Budo, whatever the weather:

    MM
    MV
    FQ

    Fabio keeps having fitness issues, sad to see on such a blistering young talent.
    As far as the blocking, it kept happening, gotta agree with Simon and Freddie that this circuit has a problem with staying off the racing line.

    Also want to say, what a golden age, relative newbies like Rins and Quartararo, don't know that we'll ever have it better than this year.

    I'm thinking Fabio's shoulder and forearm pump issue are going to slow him a little. His is still 99% liquid though, so maybe he'll prove me wrong.

    MM laying the smack down yet again. MV once again showing the Yamaha's potential while his teammate continues to embarrass himself. FQ looking like the rookie he is. DP busting Dovi in the lips was a sight. Ducati putting their championship hopes in his hands was a mistake.

    I said it last year.
    Sachsenring is not a great track for motoGP.

    Has Dovi thrown in the towel ?

    Dovizioso even went as far as giving the impression this year’s title fight – he now trails Marquez by 58 points – is done, and opined Ducati “needs a strategy for the future” to address the current shortcomings of the Desmosedici machine.
