This is will be the biggest challenge for Honda.

If Marquez and Lorenzo take each other out, and not JUST in Qatar, it will come down to a fight between Vinales, Rossi and Dovizioso and I think Dovi will prevail.

If Marquez and Lorenzo don't take each other out, they will be 1 and 2 in the championship with Marquez on top.

Suzuki will continue to improve and might even become a consistent podium finisher and challenger for wins.

I think Suzuki needs a higher caliber rider, like Vinales, to be a title challenger. I do not foresee any of the current top riders moving to Suzuki any time in the coming years.

Hopefully, we will see Ape and KTM start consistently challenging for podiums!

Those are my thoughts and predictions.

FYI, I know I've said this before, but if you subscribe to videopass through the MotoGP app/Google play it's $20 cheaper ($139).

Well....After being told I am not feeling it. He was out.
Probably not smart of Jonas to be non responsive assuming he wanted to come back.

Stunt implies he fucking just gave up to go party or something.
Illness is not a stunt. IMO.

Vinales was top of the time sheets. Anyway, Jorge looked nearly as comfortable on the Honda as he did on the Ducati with just a handful of laps. Not quick yet but at least he looks to be trusting the chassis.

Maverick fast in a test is the same as the last few years so maybe it is just same old same old.
