Re: 2019 Motogp Season

Marquez is a marvel to watch. There truly aren't enough superlatives. Especially when you look at where the other Hondas are in relation. In other news, KTM relieves Zarco permanently, Mika Kallio steps in for the rest of the season. https://www.crash.net/motogp/news/929333/1/ktm-replaces-zarco-kall...

Re: 2019 Motogp Season

Great race for Quartararo, I was really rooting for him. If I was Ducati, I'd be wanting to make him a huge offer for 2021. And if I were Yamaha, I'd be giving him the same equipment as Morbidelli, who he is now dominating. Does Quartararo switch manufacturers when he is deal is up in 2021? It'll be...

Re: Crowding off the track at the Italian Grand Prix

Because it was Ferrari in Monza there is no doubt in my eyes it had SOME factor in the stewards' decision. I don't think that is right, it should be binary and 100% objective, but we know the reality of the situation.

Re: Radical idea- enforce track limits on all tracks

A lot of the faster corners that have the huge asphalt run-off can still exist, but putting a bit of grass on the edge of the circuit, say 5 meters worth, would be a good solution in many areas. As many have suggested. I still think there is way too much run-off at corners that just don't need them....

No way should Sainz have been punished for what was a very bad decision by Albon to attempt to pass around the outside of that corner---he was behind, and Sainz was on the racing line. At that speed, the trajectory of Sainz was always going to carry him to the rumble strip, which in turn made it ap...

What a race!!! I’m not a huge Petrucci fan but I was thrilled for him to get a win, in Italy, on this bike. If he does nothing else the rest of his career he will always have this day, and what a day it was.

Probably settles the issue with Miller, too.
