The gloves come off now. These last 3 races should be bare knuckle brawls.

Motegi: Marquez wins the World Championship on Honda's home track.

Phillip Island: Marquez ties Mick Doohan's record of 12 wins in a season. Gritting his teeth, Doohan presents Marquez with the winner's trophy. Photo ops ensue.

Sepang: People sweat a lot.

Valencia: Marquez wins his 13th race of the season, a new record. 120,000+ Spaniards go berserk.

Jorge for the win. The real race will be Moto3, can't wait to see what Miller can do at home to stop Marquez.

Looking forward to it, on a plane in 5 hours to Melbourne, Vale had better come through for me this time...
Oh, and Fenati for Moto 3!

Not much unfortunately, based on form from the last few races and 25pts or so behind with 3 races to go, the boy's going to need a bloody miracle.

MotoGP:
VR
JLo
DP

It could happen that way. But Jlo is finally back on form and he, Rossi and Dani all want P2 in the championship really badly. Rossi runs pretty damn good at PI & Sepang. And Dani, like Jorge, runs good pretty much everywhere. MM doesn't have the pressure of the title hanging over him anymore, so he is free to take risks chasing records. It makes me happy that this is why they run the races.

But you did nail Sepang.

Maybe I΄m a pervert, but there are only two circuits left on the calendar, that really do it for me, and this is one of them (Mugello being the other one)... PI is just an amazingly beautiful circuit. Here΄s hoping the weather stays dry, and it΄s gonna be a great racing weekend!

Vale
Pedro
Marc
