    feel free to say it, we got issues. Good day for Yamaha although rain stopped the proceedings yet again but looking good. Lorenzo on a base set up and already 1.5 secs behind? That’s not bad at all I’d say. Morbidelli looking good on that M1 for sure. Good seeing Folger back and the rookies already looking good as well.

    Interesting to see where everyone is shaking out, especially with better weather for day 2. It's always a bit hard to equate testing into race results because you never quite know who is testing/focusing on what. A number of the rookies seem pretty quick for their first time out on MotoGP machines.

    Yep, testing is just that testing. I think Vinales is going balls out because he's got something to prove and needs to see his name at the top of the time sheets. He reminds me of Lorenzo in a way, Lorenzo was always the one trying to go for the top of the timing sheets. Which is great and all but unless that works out in the race then it's just going fast when it doesn't matter.

    Rossi will be interesting to watch, he likes the new engines but doesn't see much difference between the two. Though, they are better than the 2018 version. Vinales loves the new engines as well so we shall see how they all go. The paddock is heading to Jerez in a week or so for final testing of the year. My opinion, if Rossi can float in that top 6 area, then he's found something and will be on reserve until Qatar when it matters.

    Morbidelli looks good, and so did Lorenzo considering his condition. Kind of blows Crutchlow's theory out of the water that the Honda is a hard bike to ride. I think it needs more aggressive and stronger riders. Which may be why Dani Pedrosa just never could get to grips with it this year. Crutchlow on the other hand, just isn't that good and I think that's why he struggles with it. I think we may see Lorenzo win a few races this year on the Honda.

    Dovi and Petrucci looked good as well.

    Here's how I see next year shaping up. Based on what we know and are seeing and will see in testing. It will be Marquez, Dovi, Lorenzo and Vinales as the main protagonists for next years championship crown. I think Rossi will be there, but not enough to challenge for the crown and will be lucky to get some wins next year. If Yamaha truly have sorted the bike, then I only forsee him taking a max of two or three race wins. Vinales will probably win four or five, with the rest being split by Marquez, Dovi and Lorenzo.

    Bagnaia, Mir and Morbidelli will be guys to watch out for, they're already responding very well to the new bikes with impressive pace and consistent times on just base set ups. I will say Lorenzo will have much quicker success on the Honda than how long it took him to come around at Ducati and also if he can stay injury free and this will put insane pressure on Marquez to perform so he will be tested and we'll see how he handles it. Poor Zarco and Iannone are just hating life right now, mainly Iannone as his career is pretty much hanging on by a thread as it is but who knows what Aprilia may come up with that may surprise the grid although a long shot as both Aprilia and KTM seem to have enough funding but just not smart enough engineers/staff to produce a contending bike. If Petrucci wasn't competitive from the gates on that GP19 then he can go suck it, all these years at Ducati you'd think he would know how to ride those things already

    Man the 2019 season can't come soon enough, so many good riders in this grid now that will have some amazing races and taking it to the seasoned out there cause they have something to prove to earn their seats in the near future, can't wait. We'll see how this testing at Jerez goes and that weather helps as well, Moto2 and MotoE just had their testing there and they were super crappy conditions as well. Those MotoE bikes are putting down some impressive times and seems like most riders like how well they handle and that their power delivery is not abrupt for being electric.

    Man these tests are proving to be crazy, rookies coming up to speed insanely quick and top 12 positions under a second? That's crazy, granted yes that can obviously be taken with a grain of salt since everyone is working on different things but you know some if not most will attempt a time attack at some point during testing and the rookies are attempting to set benchmark times and laps to be able to work on set up and they are not bad times at all. Very happy for Nakagami for sure, he was fastest and was rather consistent too so all of his hard work is paying off. The 2019 season is just cooking up to be amazing man, again cannot wait for March to come around already, fuck this winter mode shit

    Just to add fuel to the fire. I heard that the beans were spilled and Rossi wants engine #1 but Vinales wants engine #2 and Yamaha are going to go with Engine two, so there you have. It might be a shot across the bow for Rossi. He did some decent pace with the first engine and was quick. Since they've switched to the second engine. Vinales has pulled away and Rossi is still quick but not within striking distance anymore.

    Could be Yamaha finally telling Rossi, it's this or nothing...


    P.S.
    I know Rossi has gone with Engine #2, along with Vinales as they needed to be in concurrence as too which engine to use. But that's the rumor, that Rossi liked Engine #1 better.

    And just when you think this dude has matured... nope! All he helped do was drain their bank account and start an unnecessary rifraf with Dovi. You’re good but not that good Lorenzo, Dovi,Pirro and Stoner did ALL of the development, you just came in to reap the rewards just like at Yamaha, give me a fucking break with this clown dude...
