Back to top


Tight at the top of the table. Any of the top ten or so could win the title. While the ant is away the rest have it all to play for.

Fabio Quarteraro has his best opportunity to win the championship. Will want to improve on his last three results.

Dovi & Ducati's best chance to win another championship. To go with Casey's one & only. Dovizioso or Jack Miller? More likely to be Andrea imho, although I'd love to see Miller keep improving. May help him in the factory team next year. If Jack Miller does well Ducati Corse might give him a few races in 2021 before they start talking about replacing him.

Binder, Mir, Nakagami close enough if they continue getting good points.

Yamahas ? Dear oh dear, Jarvis must be pulling his hair out. What a disaster! Engine reliability, clutch and brake problems. Congratulations Herve Poncharal ! Left Yamaha at the right time. KTM seems to be better than three tuning forks.

I'm not game to make a prediction. Loving the new winners & the unpredictability.

Yamaha is a surprise this yr. Not like them to flub basics. WTF?

It is Dovi's to lose. To a couple KTM's, Miller, both Suzuki's, Bagnaia if he were here healthy, and then a dark horse in Taka and Zarco. Methinks the dim wick Yamaha is done. Brakes were a one off. They need to look in the mirror hard re that motor! Sorry for beating a dead horse, but it is the story of the year after Honda tossing over the limit Golden Boy.

Here comes a Duc track. And Suzuki and KTM are still here. How long until Aprilia signs Dovi? 

They can't afford him.

That's from Bill & Ben on the world feed we get for races in Australia. BTW, Bill & Ben is absolutely no compliment to the over excited idiots. It was a kids TV programme long ago.

BT coverage is much superior. 

I think that you are being far too harsh on the Flower Pot Men. Sorry. Back to the topic......

I never state them because I'm always wrong. I make predictions on who I want to win the championship. But, covid has turned the world upside down and "pierced the illusion of certainty." The motogp world is also topsy turvy. Nothing makes sense and that is really starting to bother some riders.

Quartararo is pointing at the bike while Dovizioso is perplexed by the new rear tire. Maverick is doing the usual of pointing at his general lack of understanding that changes race to race (track conditions, brakes). Not saying any of this isn't valid. 

At the top of the points table, each rider has had a couple of very good to excellent results combined with unsatisfactory or poor results. Or zeros. There is no consistency except in the lack thereof.

Not convinced Miller can keep it out of the gravel. 

Of the top 5 in the standings I am most impressed by the performances of Binder. I cannot recall him criticizing the bike one time. He has only pointed the finger at himself - twice for his zeros in Jerez and Andalucía and for choosing the wrong front tire at the Styria restart. And even though he made that mistake he was still happy overall about the race weekend. Binder seems to be the most at ease with the constant shuffling of the deck. He has a bit of a wild and loose riding style reminiscent of someone else on the couch these days.

If I was a betting man, I'd put a tenner on Binder for the title.
