Why do yamaha not make their own valves? It seems such a small item, and they surely have the know-how. Makes me wonder what other parts of the engine is outsourced. Designed by Yamaha in Japan, but built by who?

This is a very interesting question.  What parts do manufacturers they actually make, or are they assemblers?

We know:

Suspensions by Ohlins for all except KTM.
Brakes by Brembo for all.
Tyres by Michelin for all.
ECUs and other electronics by Magnetti Marelli
Seamless gearboxes by some secret company in England for at least Yamaha and Honda.
Valves by some unnamed company for at least Yamaha.

What else?

I only trust two live streaming sites.  DSTV and MotoGP Video Pass.  Both obviously come at a price.  There are many free sites available.  Google for them.  Sorry, the names slipped my mind now.  Red"something" is one.

I wanted to say Morbidelli for runner-up, but the Suzuki's has been so consistent in practise and on raceday that I must believe in a Suzuki 1-2.

That would also be great.

I must add that Yamaha, although they have had a nightmare season from hell, is still right up there......

Really pleased for Suzuki. What a great last lap battle between Miller and Morbidelli. I also think 5th for Brad is a good result and its made even better that he once again passed Oliveira on track
When in doubt...grab throttle!!!

If this season didn't prove consistency is king, I don't know what will.  Mir is champion.  Deservedly so.  He only won 1 race during the season and his average starting position was 9th!  This must also be the season where just about everyone will say: "Darn!  My guy didn't win, but it is okay because Mir and Suzuki deserved it so much".   

Looking at Yamaha and Suzuki the past three seasons I am hoping (hell, and this REALLY hurts to say) that the Sky VR46 team will be on Suzukis as current rumours suggest.  I think Yamaha have some serious issues in the management of the team.  Not Jarvis, but even higher up.  They are still not serious about the European testing team work done by them.   

How was that last lap between Franky and Jackass?  In my minds eye I already saw BB on the podium as these two take each other out.  Wish we could see battles like that more frequently because in those battles, we really get to see the skill levels of these guys

Yet again Quartararo (and I hurt saying this because I like the bloody youngster) fades into an also ran.  Pretty much exactly as during his two years in Moto3 and two years in Moto2.

No reason why BB33 will not win MGP Rookie of the Year

It is pretty much done  He is 20 points ahead of AM73.  For AM to equal BB33 he needs a 2nd place with BB making no points.  However, even if they finish equal on points, BB will be Rookie of the Year because of his win, therefore the only way for AM to be Rookie of the year is, he has to win the last race with Brad 12th or worse.
