    I reckon Bautista is one of the most underrated riders on the grid.

    Bautista has had a difficult time finding a solid team. He looked like he was going to be a good fit at Suzuki before they folded years ago.
    Jacks mouth will be his biggest problem in his career I think.
    From what I can tell the riders all are riding only to the ability of the tires. Lots have spoken about burning them up in a little 3 lap effort mid race hence the regular backwards drift of a few(Ducati)

    Most? Out of a group of ... 1?
    Not many would be considered underrated - so he's not up against much.

    He's been more 'careful' though, and consistently finishing. Which is a big improvement for him.

    Less underrated, and more 'out of the spotlight' for me.

    Weirdest fact.

    Marquez and Vinales separated by 5 points at the top of the Motogp points table, after nine races. Haven't shared the podium once this year.....

    Catalunya is being reserved with the old layout. Stands will be pushed back to accomodate. Story is on motomatters. Great news the ID layout was far better and the track really needed to be looke at..

    Jerez and Barcelona to be completely resurfaced before next years races. It was that or probably lose the races.

    Hope they get the Germans to do it [ Sachsenring just been done ], watching Marquez in practice for the last race, pissing down rain and the track soaked, he's got an elbow! down. That's confidence in the bitumen/tyres for you.

    Is it just me, or was that a useless article?

    All those words which amount to:
    *shrug* It's hard to compare him with anyone else.

    Good job Jamie Klein!

    Bautista re-signs with Aspar for 2018.

    At the end of 2016, Monster Energy told Tech 3 boss Herve Poncharal 2017 would be their last year sponsoring them due to a lack of brand exposure (aka the shit results of Espargaro and Smith). Now thanks to Zarco and Folger Monster have come back to the table looking to re-sign with Tech 3 for 2018.

    Mahindra are dropping out of the Moto3 at the end of the year, leaving just Honda and KTM. Although TM are reportedly showing interest.

    They intended to stay in the paddock, just with a factory team

    "In Valencia last year the Monster representative told us, 'thank you for what we have done together in the last nine years. 2017 is going to be our last year because we would like to have more visibility, better results. We would like to be with a factory team'," Tech3 boss Herve Poncharal told Crash.net.

    From the outside looking in, it seems the Duc might be the better choice since Miller clearly isnt too inpressed by the Honda this year. And why would you want to risk being on a bike that could fall even further behind than the rest of the field?

    Honda with Marquez and Pedrosa are testing a new chassis at Brno that they believe will go a way to solving their acceleration issues. Knowing that he will likely get that chassis if he signs for Honda next year Miller may be waiting on the results from this test.
