    It's like Rossi's team don't have timing screens in the garage? They can see what other riders are doing and never react to it.

    Bit from Dear George I thought was quite funny. "Please stop marching up and down in front of Rossi’s motorhome in your Spartan uniform. It won’t take much for Jarvis to shoot someone at this stage of the season"

    I honestly think If Lorenzo had stayed with Ducati next season, Marquez might have had a decent challenge on his hands.

    With Petrucci and Dovi at Ducati, I think Marquez will face the occasional red attack but consistency will be an issue.

    Lorenzo will be getting to grips with the Honda and will lose too many podiums early in the season to challenge at the end of the season.

    Yamaha...who bloody knows.

    Suzuki's lineup of Mir and Rins is too inexperienced to challenge for a title.

    KTM and Aprilia, obviously no chance.

    All in all, Marquez will win his 8th title in 2019, and Lorenzo is currently bloody glad he didn't stay at Yamaha and annoyed he's leaving Ducati.

    Lorenzo is blaming Marquez for his crash.

    Jorge Lorenzo has hit out at MotoGP rival Marc Marquez for “destroying” his race and causing the foot injury he sustained in his first-corner crash at Aragon.

    Don't see how MM was at fault...

    and can the commentators please stop saying "factory suzukis" (are there any other Suzukis out there?)......also "Ducati grunt" (it doesn't exist! its all to do with perceived gaps at different speeds)

    Another yawn fest of a MotoGP race and ultimately one that makes the championship "battle" as interesting as grass grow.

    People get pushed off line during the first few corners every race. Jorge opened the throttle too much too soon and ruined s own race after a fairly standard start to the race.

    Fkn laughed at broken metatarsil. Its a cracked bone, the bit after the first knuckle (look at your finger, the knuckle just after the start of your fingernail to the second knuckle down) from the tip that joins to the foot proper (tarsel). Surprised they didn't use the word phalangies, sounds even worse! Having broken toes walking into doors when drunk, I can assure you that, while uncomfortable as hell, you can still actually walk, ride and function as normal. Expect to see Jorge in a wheelchair with full leg cast or external halo from this injury. ffs
    yes, i am ignorant

    For a guy that had his collar bone surgically reconnected after crashing on a Friday and then racing again two days later, I highly doubt it.

    Chances are he's taken a few steps and thought (very wisely), best not to walk on something that feels fucked and risk doing more damage to it.

    He's no stranger to pain and how to deal with it after leaving part of his finger in his Alpinestars glove a few years ago.

    The same guy that raced with two broken ankles as well. He's as tough as they come.

    Well, "phalange" would be the whole finger (or toe) - and he didn't break the whole thing. So metatarsal is correct.
    They don't say they broke a 'shin' bone - they say tibia and/or fibula.

    *shrug*

    Either way - fuck off cunt. MM didn't cause it.

    The Lorenzo bashing is about par with the Rossi fanboys.

    I just read that Zarco was 20 seconds slower than he was last year. Almost a second a lap. He's on the exact same package as last year IIRC so what could cause that?
