Jip  :thumleft: Seems George wants to come out of retirement  ;D The financial landscape has however massively changed over the last three months, so much so that the Factory Hi Rollers also have to check on their piggy banks  ;)

True story, I think we going to see old frames etc being used next year. I cant see R&D having the money they used to. We may even see some teams drop out due to funding.

I think Lorenzo had a plan to make himself relevant during testing but CV-19 stopped all of that so if it was a strategy it suffered a big setback. I'm not discounting his come back though, he may still get it right. A world champ is always in with a shot over a rookie.

KTM has confirmed that Pol has an offer from Honda. So there is truth to to rumor .

https://www.motogp.com/en/news/2020/06/16/ktm-confirm-pol-espargaro-has-2021-repsol-honda-offer/331803?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=Social&utm_content=KTMconfirmPolEspargarohas2021RepsolHondaoffer&utm_campaign=Traffic&fbclid=IwAR2fjAKAabGR-2R9KO36jotYN7DmCIexfd-6x-J_y1Oej1yiqXXX7epADK8

We know the offer is there,.. we waiting to see if he accepts and it begs more questions than answers over Alex and where he is going..

With Dovi not sure if he will continue riding and as usual there is pressure on Rossi to retire but I think the Goat will be around until he drops past 10th place on a regular bases.

My guess:

Pol to Repsol Honda
Alex to LCR Honda (full factory bike and support)
Petrux to KTM
Rossi to Petronas Yamaha (full factory bike and support)
Dovi stays with factory Ducati

No live timing as yet
Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

They don't usually have live timing from private testing as most teams do not use transponders.
