    People forget that what is the “Ferrari red” was originally the Marlboro red.

    Yamaha said they couldn't supply Tech3 with a current year bike for Zarco, but are tipped to supply one for a Petronas/SIC team.

    Tech3's total budget is 10 million euros/season (Lorenzo earns 12 million/season at Ducati).

    David Emmett from MotoMatters said that Petronas is ready to drop 25 million euros on a MotoGP team. Combine that with potential Monster Energy money and it's obvious why Yamaha might be a bit more forthcoming with a 2019 bike.

    Pedro and Petronas Yamaha: https://www.motorcyclenews.com/sport...maha-imminent/

    It's thought a contract has already been signed and likely an announcement in the next 24 hours... but still all hearsay.
    I'd say where there's smoke there's fire but after the Lorenzo curveball...

    And before that it was the recognised motor racing colour of Italy, blue for France, green for Great Britain and white for Germany.

    Marquez gave everyone absolutely no hope in Q2. Used the same set of tyres all session and didn't fall out of the low 1:34s. The riders in front of him set their fastest laps on new tyres. Marquez went nearly full race distance on a set of hards.

    Did the same in fp3&4 as well on softs and mediums. He's looking ominous right now but it's still hard to go age how it will all go on Sunday ever since Michelin came in.

    That was an amazing Q2 to watch though. 99 on pole and then the timing screen suddenly lit up with red sectors for nearly every rider on their final flying lap, and he tumbled down the order.
