A. Marquez showed glimpses of "getting the bike" but i don't think he will ever have the same level of adaptability that MM has. MM is something else.

He’s done Mat. Every photo on his social media he’s had that arm slung since early December. No chance he’ll be fit enough to ride in 2021, and likely not 2022 either - unless he finds some miracle or uses a bit of Iannone’s steak.

Jenny Anderson from KTM joins MM’s team. I guess she can always help Pol again if there’s no guest rider.

Loris played the Karma card.

The more I see him in that arm brace the less his chances of getting back to form.
That injury may have been career ending.

I have my doubts.

Doohan and the leg injury could be compensated with a thumb brake, etc.
Doohan could also lock his thigh against the tank indent for stability.
WinOrBin will have to throttle, brake (brake lever and air brake with upper body), and steer with a diminished right arm.

Another aspect of WinOrBin’s issue isn’t just the arm break and infection, but also the legacy shoulder stability issues.

True. All of it.

Somehow his incredible desire will get him back on the grid in my passionate dumb ass opinion

Thinking ‘22 though. No doubt he has a lot to overcome.

As much as I don’t like the guy it's a sad way to have a decline in career.
I’d rather see him 100% healthy getting beat fair and square by some the new “Young Guy" on the grid like Binder, Mir, Olivera, etc.

Now we may have to live with the never ending rationalization of; “If WinOrBin was in his prime he could have won”.
