Comments

On many levels. I doubt we will see this season’s like for a considerable length of time. 

It has been. A deserving champion and an honourful second spot for FQ20. Would have wished for them both to claim top spot but there can be only one... Fabulous win by Rins as well.

Now I am curious about Tuesday. How big is the step forward in hp for the M1? Will the new Honda stop trying to kill its riders? Is KTM's frame a step forward? Bring it on 😃

BTW, wouldn't it be Portugal opening in 2023? Wasn't the calendar changed?

I've got you friend! Bold picks, and thanks for reminding me of (gorgeous track, Europe rather than yuckQatar = good news) Portugal.

Good luck

:)

Thanks! Raul has actually won at Algarve in moto2 and Miguel-well, it is his home circuit. And they're both on aprilias, which go decently in Portugal. It's a beautiful track.. the elevation changes are just ❤️

I have recently just started track days as a hobby and since then, I cannot help but admire the GP tracks. Things of beauty. Joy forever.

^ Amen! I'm getting back out (post racing and big crash, just piddling around)...Pacific NW USA, Triumph Daytona 675R. The Ridge, Oregon Raceway Park, Portland Intl Raceway, Laguna Seca, a few others.

Where are you Kailas? What track, what bike?

:)

India. MMRT track. I ride a KTM duke 200. Been riding since 2014 but began track days as recently as 2022. When I said I admire the motogp tracks, i mean on TV. I haven't even seen the one in my country yet 😁😁

But ya, basic intention is to attend more track schools and days! I kept waiting to scrape together a few more bucks to buy another motorcycle that i forgot to enjoy what I have at hand. Decided not to do that anymore..

Btw, nice catching up with you and the others here. Get back on that track soon! 

^ That’s $40 between the two of us to help support the site. Good start. Plenty more room in the Motomutterers Paddock for those who can and want to contribute. You can find the link in Shrink’s post ^. 

Next, as you may have seen below, I now have Riesjart’s email (thanks for facilitating) and I’ll be emailing him later this evening for his address etc. I’ve not seen anything so far from Ivanhoe, but hopefully he will be in touch shortly. 

Throwing all caution and lessons learned in the wind, here are my optimistic 2023 predictions that hopefully lack any (see 2022 and 2021) gambler’s curse and don’t cause physical handicap during the off-season 🤞

1. Quartararo 

2. Bastianini 

3. Bagnaia 

4. M. Marquez

5. and I. Oliveira

This year I’ve selected riders for their speed and style, riders who give me joy simply watching them racing a bike. I hope they bring joy to others too. I’m allowing myself only two Ducatis, no Hondas, as in previous years, much as I admire Mir and Rins and wish them well. And no one over 30 at the start of the season - seems to me MotoGP with the addition of sprint races is no country for old men.  Oh, and my selection reflects the feeling that Fabio won’t have a bike on which to express his genius to the full, that the Ducati factory team may have chosen the wrong rider and the hope that Aprilia are already focussing on the areas where they need to improve after coming so close in 2022, and will come back in full force next season.
 

^ Finally, may I remind you to make a donation to Motomatters alongside submitting your team selection, if you can and want to, my friends. Motoshrink’s post ^ above has all the info you need. 

1. Binder - KTM 

2. Bagnaia - Ducati

3. Martin - Ducati 

4. Quarteraro - Yamaha

5. Vinales - Aprilia 

6. Oliveira - Aprilia [Independent]

 

Your choice of BB as champion, but also your comments.

I believe that because there will be no need to go to fuel efficient maps in the sprint races, Ducati will have an even greater advantage, able to use full power for ~11 laps.

Unlike some of my fellow Mutterers, I can't wait to see the sprints. Don't you want to see the best rider all-out with no tire conservation or fuel conservation strategy?

Great ideas Clover… and love your BB pick #1. Was wondering if I shouldn’t add him in my 5, he’s earned it and if Valencia is a predictor he may well end up at the sharp end. Time for some soul searching!

Merry Xmas MotoMateys.

I have decided to jump in, considered waiting for some news and test results. But someone might get in before me.

Taking a chance just for fun.

Enea Bastianini for Champion del Mondo!

Pecco Bagnaia for a Ducati Corse 1,2! Could go the other way but two for Bagnaia back to back seems unlikely.

Marc Marquez to win races and crash a bit but not so much of either as pre 2020. The new kids are quick!

Brad Binder because I rate KTM highly as a racing company and expect much more from KTM after poor results in 2022. Jack will take some time to adapt to whatever KTM brings for 2023.

Fabio Quartararo I don't expect a rocket powered Yamaha. Fabulous Q will ride the wheels off whatever bike he is on. I would have Fab a bit higher if I was more confident regarding the Yamaha bike. Yamaha's team, management and corporate backing as well.

Miguel Oliveira the smiling Dentist for top Indi rider. Simply because I want Aprilia to do well, more in hope than really expecting miracles. 2022 was a great season and Aprilia have learnt a lot. Four riders & eight bikes may require a lot of adaptation for wee Aprilia.

Apical: 1. Bastianini 2. Bagnaia 3. M. Marquez 4. Binder 5. Quartararo I Oliveira

SP_won. 1. Bagnaia 2. Marquez 3. Quartararo 4. Binder 5. Bastianini I. Martin 

Thanks and good luck to all.

1.  Bagnaia. 2.  Rins. 3.  Quatararo. 4.  Bastianini. 5.  Mir. I.  Bezzechi

Sentimental picks on my part - really want great things for the (former) Suzuki boys!  

Bring on 2023! 

Guessing/hoping Luca M is top 3, as well as Binder. But...

I think I will wait to predict the future to about March 4th, after all the motocross training accidents.

P.S. Congratulations to Pecco, what a comeback! Really happy to see him become a champion.

Really enjoyed this, thanks to Ivanhoe for the spreadsheeting goodness. SP_won I think I was the same except different order, but on reflection going for an outlier in 5th. I just suspect the Ductaci Factory environment is just not conducive to consistent results.. Hopefully this is not a commentator's curse for any of these riders with 2 of my picks from this year off the track for a considerable period. Anyway, here they are:

1: Marquez   2: Quatararo   3: Bagnaia   4: Binder   5: Vinales    Ind: Martin

1. Marquez 2. Bastianini 3. Bagnaia 4. Quatararo 5. Binder Ind: Rins 

1. Marquez

2. Bagnaia

3. Quartararo

4. Bastianini

5. Miller

I. Martin

 

1. Pecco Bagnaia
2. Marc Marquez
3. Fabio Quartararo
4. Enea Bastianini
5. Aleix Espargaro
I. Marini

Super hard to make a pick, but the Ducs just look so solid and with so many bikes they have a massive data advantage in these years of few tests days. Marc will be back to form though, and Yamaha will once again bring a minor update that Fabio will ride the wheels off to keep up with the big spenders. Very unsure about Aleix, wonder if this year wasn't his Hail Mary, but fingers crossed - and I had regrets this year for not including him in my picks. Other Ducati riders will be settling in, Martin will keep crashing and Zarco will keep being the in-race test rider. Even if Honda bring the goods I suspect it will take the ex-Suzuki riders too long to adjust. Absolutely expect to have this all completely wrong. Glad everyone is getting a break, but simultaneously wish I could be watching race 1 next weekend.

I can't help but wonder if Honda might have the wrong ex-Suzuki guy in their Team. Obviuosly Mir is good, but it seems to me that Rins is the one with that burning need to win and he when puts his mind to it he can find a way to make it happen.  

 

1. Marc Marquez

2. Fabio Quartararo

3. Ennea Bastianinni

4. Pecco Bagnaia

5. Joan Mir

Ind: Alex Rins

Hopefully Honda comes up with something tomorrow otherwise I'll be dead last 😃

1. Bastianini 2. Bagnaia 3. M. Marquez 4. Quartararo 5. Martin I.R. Martin

Thanks for a great season and your efforts Shrink & Ivanhoe.

1. Marc
2. Pecco
3. Fabio
4. Enes
5. Miller
I. Alex Marquez

Can't wait to see how the test plays out!

***Scrolling up to check - KRUSTY! LETS DO THIS!

think alike … perhaps🤞😂 Let’s hope it comes down to the battle of our I’s mate, to see which of us wins 😁

Drama in the final round as Riesjart overtakes KN58 for the lead!

Riesjart, 2022 Champion! Nicely done. TZ/RD you did GREAT until Raul (Morbidelli didn’t help you out much either) but you deserve much praise...tip of the hat.

I have Cloverleaf's email and can fwd yours Riesjart (what is your standard T shirt size? Can I get your mailing address? When I see you are on here, will post my email for a bit so you can be in touch).

Congrats to you and your FABULOUS picks!!

:)

^ Via Shrink as above, if that’s ok. They’ll be a special shirt for you, Ivanhoe, for keeping the score and holding the championship together over a long season. In addition, of course, to the shirt that I’ll be sending to Riesjart.

In passing on the (in my case, somewhat fortuitous) #1 plate to a very worthy 2022 winner in Riesjart, can I offer congratulations to each and every contender for a great contest and some brilliant picks. Special thanks to Shrink for being our ringmaster (and letting me beat him again), commiserations to KN58, who came so close only to have victory snatched away at the very last moment - maybe next time, my friend. Shrink has already mentioned TZ/RD and rightly so, the Boss was also hampered in a similar way, then there’s Powervalve - the only one of us to go with Aleix, good picking my friend, and so many more, too many to mention - I’ve already gone on too long. Best of luck for 2023.

One final thought. Perhaps those that can and want to could make a donation to Motomatters alongside submitting their picks to Shrink. Just a thought. I know we are all subscribers but David does a lot for us and this might be one way of saying thank you. Up to you, no one will be asking or checking. Only if you can and want to.

 

Recognition for a special contribution. Have noted your contact details (can be deleted now should you wish) and I’ll be in touch later this evening.

Super happy, thanks for organizing again! @shrink I will check again later tonight, lets say 2100 Dutch winter time. Standard size is M.

Looking forward to the 2023 competition!

Cloverleaf, want to just pop in? I've been posting my email brielfly suggesting folks contact there w theirs, and off we go. Great to see an you both here,  can you two connect?

:)

This is awesome. Thanks for organizing this.

I will have a rummage around and see if I can't find any bits and bobs to donate as well. Handy having a winner in Holland, helps with the postage.

Also, thanks to everyone for their support. I have a lot to work on over the winter to improve the site, more updates later.

Always looking fwd Alien Journo Krop! Sign me up to buy a Motomatters T shirt if they happen. Cloverleaf's idea to include site donation was a goodie.

Enjoy some time off.

That was a great championship, both on the track and on this forum, where the top two battled it out all the way to the final race. Going to observe the winter tests before making picks. Not that it will make much difference, but a change in strategy is in order after finishing near the bottom of the pile for two years running. HA! More folly probably. (but you never know and that's why we play the game)

Thanks everyone :)

But what would really warm my heart would be to see Aprilia get everything together and see Aleix & Maverick fighting for the title.

Apologies to all riders named below for jinxing their 2023 season before a wheel has turned!

Poole Pirates:

1. Marquez

2. Quartararo

3. Bastianini

4. Bagnaia

5. Vinales

IR. Martin

Might I suggest TZnRDracer be awarded the Golden Caliper for precision for getting the first 3 positions correct? No way am I coming up with this award because I'm second getting 1, 2, and 5 correct. No way.

Picks for 2023:

1. MM93

2. EB23

3. FQ20

4. FB63

5. BB33

I. MB72

Lo: 1. M.Marquez 2. Quartararo 3. Bagnaia 4. A.Espagaro 5. Binder I. Rins

1. F. Bagnaia  2.  M. Marquez  3. M. Bezzecchi 4. E. Bastinini  5. F. Quartararo  I. A. Marquez

also feel that the sprint races will favor Ducati more than anyone..
