Last year it was a Ducati race save for MM. Yamaha and Honda are out so Mir, Pol and Dovi on the podium not necessary in that order.

We will get plenty of wet racing before the year ends!

Yup. Expecting rain at Assen, Silverstone, Motegi, at least on session at Philip Island and lots of rain at Sepang. Wait. Damnit.

Luca Marini's highside. Ugh. Hope he's OK.


edit: Marini may have a broken ankle. Damn.

Latest from the SkyVR46 Team Twitter. Photo of Marini using two canes to stand at the link:

Raising hands Just a big scare. The crew is back together! Blue heartBlack heart

Flexed biceps After detailed examinations that did not show fractures, @Luca_Marini_97
is back to the circuit, where he will continue his therapy on the ankle at the @clinicamobile.
I understand he's been declared fit to ride but we know how low the bar is to be declared fit. I think they hold a mirror up to the rider's mouth to detect breathing and thats good enough.

Well if they previously allowed for Borenzo to ride with two broken ankles they should let Marini ride with no fractures.

Not sure how much it's Mir and how much it's Suzuki, but they need to get better at those time-attacks if Mir wants to win any races this year.

Some really close times in Q2... that bodes well for a good close race tomorrow! The Yamahas and Ducatis looking strong, I'm changing my prediction to Quartararo, Bagnaia and Miller, with Morbidelli & Rossi just off the podium. Let's do this!

Did anyone catch the interview Simon did with Reubin Xaus ?
Sounds like VR46 Sky may have made an offer to take over the Avintia Ducati team.

Yeah they're saying VR46 might run one of those bikes next year? Seems a little crazy.

The rumors are that Petronas isn't thrilled with Yamaha and will go over to Suzuki and VR46 will take over the Yamaha satellite team, in 2022. Maybe this is sort of an interim step toward that but it doesn't make a lot of sense.
