So many rumors going around now with speculations and stuff of Dorna trying to help Marc with more time

@FlexZA - What a load of nonsense, please get your facts straight.  Us Rossi fans know the real reason.  He only has to get the following 19 races cancelled as well so he can retire at the end of this season and Rossi fans can, from now until eternity, maintain that he would have won the 2020 season if only he had been able to race.

I was actually waiting for this, given what is happening on the F1 side too. In fact news24 speculates that F1 may only start in May, let's hope the same is not true for MotoGP!

Yes is going to create havoc with sports that are travelling circus's . I have an international conference in Hong Kong in September and am already doubting it will happen. In reality how quickly can this virus be brought under control?

Spectators? And the Italian riders? Start the season without them?

I was watching some news with some brains behind things and she recons that the timeline for a cure / vaccine is 4 months to trials and 12 - 18 months for distribution,

I would assume that travel bans and restriction of movement is there to buy time until that comes into affect.

Qatar GP. 

Moto 3 - Darryn Binder
FP1:  10th, 0.8s off
FP2:  2nd, 0.1s off.

We could see some awesome racing.  In Moto3 the top 13 is within 1 second and in Moto2 the first 17 is within 1 second.

MotoGP in Austen, Texas which would have been the opener for the season on 3 April, after the cancellation of Qatar and postponement of Thailand has just been postponed to November.
