Congrats Fabio Quartararo, hand on the Cup at halfway mark. And he isn't half way Marc, he is a real deal Alien. 

Everyone else is burning up trying to exit the atmosphere since The Marc cratered.

Certainly seems Fabio's team is thinking smartly. This together with his talent is enough. To hear Pecco, it is almost as if he was so desperate to stay with Fabio he low sided. Wouldn't a sage voice (either internal or external) have resonated in his brain and told him to settle for a 5 point loss rather than 25. Of course red mist was involved, but still... 

When Fabio talks about sc2? tire carcass (a first), or using the extra weight of gas on opening laps in turns and braking where it helps (a first), it is clear some right thinking is going on. He doesn't often talk technical but when he does, it is eye opening to me.

At least what I heard Pecco say he was trying to back off from Fabio to look after his front and see how the rears worked out...medium versus hard. Wouldn't be the first time that going easy in difficult conditions results in a simple off. I think when you're fastest, as Pecco was all weekend, it is easy and possibly the correct course to chose what you believe will give you the best start to finish performance. I think Fabio took the gamble of a worse race distance tyre giving him a chance to get into the fight at the beginning, disturbing Pecco. If he failed to get ahead at the start, he would probably podium anyway. if he got ahead, as he did, you just never know what might happen.

Fabio Quartararo en Blu was fookin magic! Right side of the tire at a late choppy throttle opening - simple stuff for Pecco. He was doing well! Just got caught out. Which he can't if he is going to be a Champ. DNF city this yr. 

 

Gap now only nine points off four full race wins after four no scores. That tells you all you need to know about the competition....especially when you consider Pecco has two wins.

Marc only 21 points adrift from the Ducatis and he didn't even show up for four races nor was he even competitive in the ones he did!

The future isn't necessarily as bright as it looks on paper over at Ducati. These win-it-or-bin-it-or-finish-tenth types just won't get it done against the new Lorenzo, a motivated Marc and the unknowns of seat-hopping and bike competitiveness in 2023. They've had their window for a few years now but Dovi could not get it done vs Marc.

The impressive BBinder being in fifth, when he has spent much of the season forcing his KTM to do what he wants on Sundays, is an sign of how inconsistent almost everyone else has been. He is in front of both factory Ducatis.

Also unusual that the riders in second and third have only one MotoGP win between them.

^ Kailasnath and Faitbien, we'd love to have you. Keep an eye out here, there is an announcement saying it is open for sign up at the beginning of Winter Testing. Title is something like "2023 Top 5 Tipping."

You put up a comment under it w your picks. You get added to the list. It closes either at max # of people or Thurs before Round 1. 

See you here in Fall?

^ You hexed Morbidelli too eh?

:)

I am quite happy to be running 7th. The "M picks" have all plopped, Marc/Mir/Martin. Thanks again for carrying the MM tipping Ivanhoe. We havent heard much from our top 3 readers - you should come rub it in a bit. You look great.

Gerry Collins, does your Boss know where she's at here? Brilliant!

But in all earnest, yes we will have an MM cup winner this year but just prior to the halfway point not many of us are guessing right 😊

Morbidelli may be underperforming and how much of that can we attribute to his loss of the great Ramon Forcada? Ramon staying at RNF Aprilia - that would be a great loss to Yamaha.
