Well I have made some mistakes.

Picked Marc to gather a lot of championship points for me. Wrong again Apical!

I may have jinxed Jorge Martin to.

Chose the wrong rookie as well. Bez has 10 times Remy's points. That's racing!

With Marc out, who knows what will happen, the season is long yet!

Given that the four leading Motomutterers all have Marquez in their team, and Marini appears to have found some real race speed, I see my chances in the MMDT championship increasing ;-) 

And thanks again Ivanhoe for your efforts!

The four of us have clearly peaked too early and you're looking good for the second trimester of the MMDT GP. Honestly thought Marc would be winning every second race again by this point of the year. Jack might pick up again if he gets some good news about his future. 

Miller was a mystery yesterday. Never in the mix. According to Jack, he couldn't attack in San Donato (turn 1) and also had bad acceleration out of Bucine, the last turn onto the main straight, where he lost a lot of ground on Alex Marquez apparently. Got stuck behind A. Marquez and Martin, he said.

I'd like to see Miller in the RNF Aprilia team next year, together with Darryn Binder who I think deserves another year. That would be a good combo of rookie and experience. And fun riders and characters to watch too! But I can imagine Aprilia will want to have at least one Italian on their bike next year. If only Aprilia had hit this form one year earlier, I think then VR46 would have opted for the Noale bikes and they would have had two interesting Italians on the RS-GP...

Anyway, Miller seems to be connected to a KTM factory ride (which I also would like to see!), so who knows which riders will be in the Aprilia satellite squad. I'm not too fond of Raul Fernandez, he's got a rather unpleasant character. Not even mentioning his lack of results thus far. And he's not Italian either. And I don't see Dovi getting back to his pre-2020 speed anymore either. I even wonder if he will complete this season, with the results he's getting now. He's averaging 1 point per race this year!

 

I think Miller and KTM are likely to be a great mix, but it is sad to see them (KTM) burning through riders so quickly. I agree that Aprilia are likely to want some young Italian talent on their spare bikes. I don't know that Razali and Jack would gel either, I think RR is toxic but I'd be happy to be proved wrong. 

Very hard to judge what went on with Jack in the race we saw so little of him! He just looked crushed in that pre event press conference though. 

I wonder if Fabio D would jump onto the Ape. Dovi definitely won't stick around. It's heartbreaking to see him at the back of the pack every race. They aren't great bikes, but he's not really that slow or riding badly, the competition is just so fierce and times are so close. 

I guess that even if the racing isn't full of chopping and changing at the moment the silly season sure is! 

The commentary didn't even bothering that Miller had dropped to 22nd by the end of lap one, yet they were happy to bang on about Mir slipping back a solitary spot.

This is where the season gets dirty. Those on the out no longer getting parts or parity in support, and the body language telling you all you need to know about contractual status and offers on the table (or lack thereof). Ducati have been treating Jack like ass for a few rounds now and there's certainly no one out the back waiting for him when he arrives back to the pits after an off. Ducati Corse have always been pathetic like that and Puig/HRC with Pol aren't much better this year either.

Totally agree on all points. Also with your description that Razali is toxic. I have a bad feeling too about the man, the way the whole transformation went from Petronas SRT to the current RNF set-up seemed pretty messy. Also I think the 'RNF' name is silly and not very professional. But like you said, I too will be happy to be proven wrong. I want that second Aprilia team to be successful. And Aprilia's Massimo Rivola seems like a very smart and decent guy, he will surely know more than us... 

Was just thinking, with the silly season almost at an end - expecting signings in the next two months - who would you sign? See how much difference a season or even a couple of races mean? Jorge Martin vs Enea Bestia? The talk of Jack Miller out who beat both handsomely last year and was ahead of 4 year older Zarco in 2021 standings. Oliveira, he has been sounding hurt since Brad got the factory seat first. And got the extended contract.

That lack of trust, respect, and faith must hurt (it would me).

It’s definitely a case of future potential vs understanding current weaknesses. As an organizational leader I can just say that this is a very strong bias, and take a chance on your own versus the unknown. So good on Aprilia sticking with Mav! Great corporate culture.

KTM, Ducati, not so much. But that’s the name of the game, everyone wants to win a Marc Marquez or Fabio Quartararo.

Anyway, what I was thinking… perhaps a small mini competition on who will end up where? Or not a competition just everyone’s thoughts hey? ‘Cause I have nothing showing up in my crystal ball but fog 😂
