I'm pretty sure Arenas is still really pissed off.

Happy for D. Binder and also nice to see Luca win Moto2. Watch out, the younger brothers are coming up! (although A. Marquez is still looking shaky on the RC213V, so maybe not all the brothers are coming up)

Overall the races weren't great this weekend but there were some exciting moments and this weekend seems like the turning point toward the end-game of the season.

Dorna should hire Marquez to be a guest commentator during the rest of the season like the NBA brought Draymond into the studio for NBA playoffs. His interviews show Marquez is super-insightful and it would be a lot of fun to hear his reactions in real time to the racing.

god bless Husky, and would be cool to see Mr D Binder on a Husky in MotoGP someday, but I'm rooting for his Moto3 KTM in 2020 ...

Seriously, would be sweet for MM to do some commentary (except that he would be super P.C.). Remember when Cody Webb did commentary for Erzberg after breaking his arm in qualifying? He crushed it and was so much better than the professional commentators.

I have zero interest in hearing MM blather.

I like the team in place. A lot.

Simon has become solid. I think the riders respect him too.

Stay home and train Marc!!

sorry, I’m slow on the uptake today ...

yes, it was awesome to see Husky win the Moto3 race on 9/20 and see team owner Mr Biaggi on the podium with his first-place rider.

This is why negotiations went on for six months.

Ducati confirms Jack Miller and Pecco Bagnaia as the factory team for 2021. Zarco and Jorge Martin will be teammates at Pramac Racing in 2021. Links from MotoGP.com below.

No official word yet about who will fill the two seats at Avintia/Esponsorama-lama-ding-dong Racing next year. Bastianini has been signed by Ducati so he's obviously headed for the second satellite team but the official announcement hasn't been made, yet. There are rumors that the team may be restructured or even bought out by Leopard Racing.

Leopard has an endless supply of money to launder.

Leopard, ineos, Petronas red bull, monster et al are just in sports sponsorship for the money laundering. They don't need to get their name out there. And you know what? I am okay with their financial shenanigans as long as they keep my favorite sports afloat. There's an insane amount of corruption in all professional sports and as long as the fuckery doesn't influence the outcome of the competition artificially, I say let the fuckery continue

I'm all for racing in racing too, but let's not put Leopard in the same league as Ineos, Petronas, RedBull and Monster. They're not close. Not even close. Remotely close. Or even estranged cousins.
