Remember the time MM and DP had the little incident where Dani's rear traction control sensor was cut, that Honda spat him off very quickly. He sat in the middle of the track having absolutely no idea what just happened.

Jip, poor ou never knew what went wrong ! Over tech is really becoming  dice of the mechanical & motorised quick computers  :(

I was so surprised to see Brad still wearing the pair of sunglasses I made for him, this was Sepang.

It's really great to see....

Indeed.  I remember it well.  ALso JL99 falling on his arse in the first corner after a practice start during one of the free practices because his launch control did not reset to traction control in time for the corner.

Just read on FB. MM93 has just signed a 4 contract extension keeping him with repsol Honda until the end of 2024.

https://www.motogp.com/en/news/2020/02/20/marc-marquez-renews-with-hrc-through-to-the-end-of-2024/324803?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=Social&utm_content=MarcMarquezrenewswithHRCthroughtotheendof2024&utm_campaign=Traffic&fbclid=IwAR0iE23OCgBumxgX9YUd8gsxcH1nC8GoXQzcpQ-NlM4SKytVr1F90HyyFcU

Sharp move of Honda to retain his services for 4 more years  :thumleft: Very sure the vultures were circling already  ;)

If the recipe continue, he will have set many new records by the end of the 4 year contract.
If it aint broke, dont fix it.

I can see that, looking at Mr Rossi.

MM learning from Rossis Mistakes who would have definitely had at least one more title had he stayed on that V5 Honda another 2 years. Rossi leaving Yamaha was also mistake.

Huge mistake, but sometimes riders are willing to not play it safe for the sake of change.
