You guys are funny ! Humbling, try racing a MotoGP beast with a weak arm and almost zero track time then having 3 wins so far. Look I get it people dont like MM because he is not a entertainer with funny shirts, nick names and a travelling bunch of adoring groupies and fan club. Like a Danny Pedrosa you are shun for being considered “boring” or serious. Fok dit. He is one of the best motorcycle racers of all time.

Well done FQ, well deserved
Thanks VR you will be missed. Should do his last race in a sun / moon livery

The funniest guy here, is you.  Even when we compliment MM93, you manage to find something negative about that.   :imaposer:

You are deadright in that Marc Marquez is one of the best motorcycle racers of all time.

You are wrong in that he is racing with a weak arm, as he would get nowhere in this class.

Also, when was his big injury? He has had more than enough recovery time, the problem with MM was not his shoulder, it was in his head, and that took longer overcoming.

I think you might be wrong! He broke his arm  ,was back two weeks later and then broke the fix! I suspect that arm is\was a mess!

I know, so give him another 2 months to heal, but if you watch his path of recovery, many "foulplay" incidents, etc, all signs of diminished mental strenght/self confidence, and of course the many crashes indicating to himself not really believing that he was MM anymore.

True But I broke my back racing coming back is not easy! It is very true your head also takes a lot of time to heal ! But like in my case it took two years to get back a fair level of fitness !

Importantly it has given him new perspective and maturity. The head is always the last bone to heal - and his ego also got badly bruised.

Laas jaar het die twee VR46 Moto2 ryers mekaar uitgehaal op die afkoel rondte.  Besonder snaaks vir die kykers.  Hulle en hulle baas was minder beindruk.

A lot has been said about Darryn Binder getting the MotoGP ride, direct from Moto3.  Some positive for DB.  Some negative.  Some positive, or negative, but sensible.  Some not so sensible.  One of the ones I found rather strange was Aleix Espargaro having his say.  He believes MotoGP should introduce a Super Licence similar to F1 to prevent Moto3 riders going directly to MotoGP.  He also made a few other statements about the silliness of this DB40 move.  He is dead wrong in my opinion, but he is entitled to his opinion.

What I want to get at, was one of the funniest things I have seen on social media in a while.   Some really twisted guy posted this poll on Facebook.

Who will get their first maiden MotoGP win?

1.  Darryn Binder.  2022 1st season in MotoGP.
2.  Aleix Espargaro.  2022 12th year in MotoGP.

Note on AE's career:  278 starts with 0 wins and 3 podiums.
