I have a question for you experts.  You all know about the misery of the Marquez Rossi issue in 2015.  Now that the shoe is on the other foot, what should Rossi do?  Act like a grown up or pull endless passes on Marquez from the first free practice until the end of the race?  Dovi is Rossi's mate and he is Italian.  On top of that Lorenzo is not on both counts.  And maybe Mr R would actually like it if Dovi wins the championship in the year that Lorenzo struggled like mad.

Rossi was saying after the Malaysian GP; "The youngsters are getting very aggressive, but what can I say? One must race or one must stay at home"

Sounds like he is basically saying that he does not mind, he can take, and dish out.

Unlike Marques, who cried in Jorge's arms. :peepwall: :pot: :peepwall:

Going to be interesting to see if "George" helps Dovi or his buddy 93 this time around...  :imaposer: :imaposer:
I'm not a 93 fan, however i do think he's currently the best rider and in my opinion, deserves the championship.

I doubt VR will interfere with MM, but I can also see that, although he won't wait for Dovi,  he will not challenge him is such a situation comes up. 

Of course, me being a VR and Yamaha fan of note, I believe this picture with a #93 Honda in it would be ever soooooo pretty!   >:D

Dear Mr. Bus,

At the risk of antagonizing you to a level where you foam around the mouth, call hit men of various styles and skills, cause your undies to become unwashable and developing seizure of differing extremes, I fear I have to disagree.

Sincerely

You are right, but he shouldn't.  A crash of a blown engine and it is bye-bye trophy.   Of course MM believes riding at 99,99999999999% is backed down and careful.

Indeed!  It seems the new Yamaha strategy of making the new bike worse than its predecessor is working well for them.   >:D

Don't tell that Frenchman he is on a Yamaha.  He clearly thinks it is a Bulldozer.   >:D

Great news indeed.  FINALLY a confirmation on official media.

I don't normally say: "See, I told you so, but check my post from 23 August", but in this case, I can't help myself.   :thumleft:

Not confirmed and hot of the "skinner" presses, but it seems Darryn Binder will join the KTM Red Bull Ajo team.

I so hope this is factually correct!

That's great! Hope KTM can catch up to the Hondas during the off season.

For sure!  The Moto3 KTM's were not at all impressive during 2017.  Perhaps putting more effort and money into the Moto GP and Moto 2 teams?
