Thanks Ivanhoe, that’s quick!

Everybody’s points tally dropped 20 points when Bagnaia crashed out, which has no consequence whatsoever on this important championship. Mir crashing on the other hand did hurt a lot of people’s standings and subsequently feelings, including mine!

Still I feel I did pretty well this round, with Bastianini and Aleix, a top-10 for Marini and Bezzecchi as top rookie in the points again. Stumo is far from safe yet! ;-)

1/3rd of the season gone, a long way to go still.....

 

PV... small "s" please :-)  i'm not grown up yet ;-)

Faster than Johann Zarco down the long straight of Losail. Thanks ivanhoe. 

Only a third of the season, wow. It's not over for you yet Poole - and it guts me that you're being so burned by your support for Dovi. At the end of 2021 I could easily have imagined you'd be leading this championship at this point of the year. 

Topsy turvy 2022! 

This time of year we just start hearing talk emerge of The Championship. It steadily rises now. And look at what we see, a 3 rider pack leading. Quartararo, A.Espargaro and Bastiannini.

Then a sizeable gap, and 4th thru 10th or so looking in the hunt. 

1 20 Fabio Quartararo Yamaha 102  

2 41 Aleix Espargaro Aprilia 98 -4

3 23 Enea Bastianini Ducati 94 -8

-- Big Gap --

4 42 Alex Rins Suzuki 69 -33

5 43 Jack Miller Ducati 62 -40

6 5 Johann Zarco Ducati 62 -40

7 63 Francesco Bagnaia Ducati 56 -46

8 33 Brad Binder KTM 56 -46

9 36 Joan Mir Suzuki 56 -46

10 93 Marc Marquez 54 -48

We can see some expectation of where riders may well trend. Notably, Martin is nowhere near the front 3, and The Ducati Cup has a front runner. That second Red seat HAS to be Ennea's, doesn't it? This has been interesting! 

LeMans was crashy. Even with a fortunately dry race. Bastianini is doing the business! Sign the kid already, we've seen more than enough. It is clear. Martin can stay where he is, raise his $ via performance bonuses. He chases carrots. He isn't likely to leave Ducati if offered a Pramac seat. 

Aprilia and Aleix Espargaro tet a tet with Quarty-Yamaha and legit coming out on top yesterday. Pretty cool! The Black bike is well set up and balanced. And, may be our new Suzuki. Quite enjoyable. 

Poetically fitting, and helping me accept it that both Suzuki's went bouncing into the spares bin in France. Both riders are going to sign somewhere soon, and the Round made the situation clear as a bell. Rins crashed, but was it a return to his 2021 gutter? Not entirely sure, but I think no. The crash brings up aero and shape shifters again, he wobbled in dirty air under high speed braking. The criticism of the racing is large and loud right now eh? Riders talk front tire temp and pressure instead of passes. 

Bastiannini head to head with Bagnaia, it WAS good watching wasn't it? There is drama and a storyline. I am eagerly gobbling it up.

Did everyone get a good look at the first lap? In particular Quartararo's double Honda hatchets he managed to dance around (Nakagami and Marc gave him a whack!). Binder and (Zarco?) collision and wings flying off. There was a ton going on. Looking fwd to a rewatch. 

Mugello in a week and a half, there is pressure. The same going on in F tires is happening in between riders' ears. 

Big loser this wknd, KTM. Ouch! Oliveira especially, shop window viewing isn't pretty. Morbidelli and Alex Marquez are both in the poop soup group too. They can't stay back there and keep seats. I don't think we get to comfortably say Suzuki is the big loser this weekend. Why? Sheezus, the horse is dead and the flies are all over it. There is a horrid realm PAST loser of the weekend. Don't linger long there lest you catch plague. Go look at wee Aprilia and Gresini again, you'll feel better. 

Winner? Don't we need to say Bastiannini? Close 2nd Aleix and Aprilia. 

Some interesting gaps between teammates....

The largest points spread (91) is found between Enea and his rookie teammate Diggia. Two pairs of teammates have the smallest gap (2): RNF's Dovi and Darryn, and also VR46 riders Marini and Bezzecchi. 

The second largest spread (83) is between factory Yamaha teammates FQ20 and FM21. After last year's French Grand Prix, Morbido had 33 points compared to this year's haul of 19. What is significant is that last year, France was round 5 and this year it is round 7! Speaking of 33 points, that is the tally of all Yamaha riders except Fabio, who is leading the sum total of the other three Iwata riders by 70 points! This is even greater than the rather surprising gap of Aleix to Maverick (65). 

The only rider yet to score points is tech3's RF 25. 

 

bummoto77, I had forgotten Franco was on the factory Yamaha team!

How the mighty have fallen.  I love Franco, but wow, this is a death spiral. To be battling with AM 73 is to be looking at a WSBK career.

Top two haven't had a non finish yet. That Zarco guy and Miller have had two already. Is there a quota ? Or is it a rate ? This was the period last year when Pecco's form slumped and Fabio cleaned up. I think Pecco is gonna repeat last year at Mugello...minus the crash...plus the win.

I think Fabio is going to repeat this year at Mugello. He's going to repeat the Yamaha's lack of power mantra he's been chanting since last season. What a long straight (with a kink and a crest). Looks thrilling...
