Thank god for a new thread. Is it my imagination or has the between race discussion become intolerable?

That's because there has been no real news as of late and the discussion has degenerated to a yes he is/no he isn't pissing match on Marquez' talent.

So I'm not sure which is the greatest tragedy. That Marquez has ruined MotoGP or that he's ruined our threads.

If people would stop re-hashing past races/racers, or pointlessly predicting the future, this place would be more directly on topic. Quiet as a morgue, but more on topic.

Kidding aside, careful what you wish for.

Right now the only place JLO is going over the finish line first is inside MMs helmet.

Good bet for MM, hard to say, good track for Rossi and DP

Cool2 not always aliens

I'm not going to play safe and populate the podium completely with the aliens.
Dovizioso third- the Open Ducati formula continues to work, the team under Gigi is gelling to the point where huge changes are not a necessity, and despite his quiet man reputation Dovi is greatly enjoying beating the crap out of teammate Crutchlow.

Rossi second- he too is enjoying beating his teammate, as well as enjoying racing again. Marky's teammate Pedro knows the Yamahas are plenty capable bikes.

Marquez for the win. I'll probably make that pick every race.
For all the obvious reasons.

Suzuki, please PLEASE do the right thing for your froggy MotoGP fans, DePuniet being your lead test rider.
No need to bring the bike. It has 2 wheels, carbon brakes, and lots of carbon fiber, there will be 45 other bikes there much like it.
Let Randy sign some autographs.
As long as his wife Lauren Vickers shows up with him!

Going out on a limb here, eh?

Only one guy on the grid so far this season is thinking "I can go faster IF I need to". All the others are thinking WTF???

Is it too much to ask that the last 4 laps this weekend be the same as the first 4 from Jerez?

The Ducati has not changed enough to be a podium contender (at least in a dry race). Pedrosa's recent surgery will take the edge off his game. Now that Lorenzo has reconciled that the championship is lost, he can regather himself to race for the money, the show and Spanish dignity. Still, the new frame works best for Rossi.

JL

Rossi followed by some very surprised other guys chasing him.
