I wouldn't be surprised if this was his last year. Nor if he lasted as long as Vale. (Well actually, I would be flabbergasted if he did.)

Moto2 and Moto3 official tests at Jerez today and tomorrow.


Day 1 Moto3 times at motomatters.com

Day 1 Moto2 times at Motomatter.com

Joe Roberts 19th just over one second off the fastest lap time: Luca Marini (Kalex). Roberts' teammate Iker Lecuona is 2nd quickest. The new KTMs really struggled at the tests last November so its a surprise to the Lecuona so quick on the revised chassis brought to this test.

Sam Lowes reports that with the new engine he can make the same lap time whether riding point-and-shoot or carrying high corner speeds. Whether that applies to anyone else, who knows but it looks like Sam Lowes will find new ways to crash this season.

all my hopes are still on Yam and Duc getting their shit together. I just cant wait for MM to screw up or slow down, cuz hes shown us plenty of times that he doesnt.
yep. don't think you can have any expectation that he'll be any less dominant this year until he proves otherwise. the little fuck just becomes more formidable every year. maybe, maaaaybe, his preseason testing hints at some small chink in the armor. or he's just matured that little bit more and realized he only needs to go so fast to test the parts they needed to test and he's keeping his powder dry for the races. unfortunately, it's probably the latter.

but i don't want him to slow down or screw up. i hope he keeps getting faster. i just hope someone else can go faster yet. i don't know that dovi can beat him to the title no matter how good the Ducati is. and really, if he does, would anyone really be satisfied with that? we know who dovi is, we know he's no marquez. if he beat him it would have to only be because the duc was clearly dominant over the honda. i could see vinales putting it all together over the course of the season if the bike is good enough. rossi.....as much as i'd like to see it happen, i just don't know that he's got enough raw speed left in him to win the title. for sure it's a long shot. that leaves jorge. without the scaphoid injury i would say he had a chance, but now i think no way. you got to be healthy all year to beat marquez and probably have to have a standout start to the season to force him into taking some risks in the second half. i think it's gonna be a great season though.

and statistically speaking, it now only becomes more improbable every year that marquez will win the title, so we have that working in our favor too. i'm gonna be positive, i don't think he'll do it this year. my money's on mav.

not surprised. thats kinda how it works when shit it new. no one knows the fastest way yet, so many ways work.

I'm sure the electronics are helping too. Moto2 used to have a hard time with fast entries because of poor engine braking control. I suspect they can enter faster now and carry the speed.

MM's successor will only have a 90% chance.

Yeah, the lynch mob stuff is over the top. Fenati is his own worst enemy. He doesn't need anymore.

Indonesian "street circuit" for MotoGP in the works as a three-year deal has been signed starting in 2021. Brand new venue that will be a public road when not in use. Expect it to be more like LeMans than Monaco. They only need to build roads and paddocks. LOL.



https://www.motorsport.com/motogp/ne...-deal/4341890/

.
Quote:
Abdulbar says the design of the circuit, which is set for a 4.32km layout featuring 18 corners, have already been approved by FIM Safety Officer Franco Uncini.

“The street circuit will be built from zero, unlike the tracks in Singapore and Monaco,” Abdulbar said.

“When it is not being raced on, it will be used as a regular highway in the area.

“We estimate a fast construction process for the circuit, as we only need to build roads and paddocks.”

street circuits aren't exactly known for lots of passing, hmmm

So I looked it up since I haven't much cared as a deal wasn't yet in place. "Street circuit" is a bit of a misnomer as those "streets" have yet to exist. The Indonesian state and French construction giant Vinci are basically building up/modernizing and creating a giant resort area on the South Lombok coast.

Regardless, Lombok looks like it would would be a fun island to mix in a race watching/volcano climbing/beach bumming trip.

They obviously spared no expense preparing that graphic. Maybe there will be more detail in future renderings, assuming there are updates to the mobile version of MS Paint.
