    I've always used Firefox but it's progressively gotten worse and now I can't use it. Just using pop-up blockers for add-ons and that's it. All media/flash players are up to date.

    What happens is I'll click on a video/race or interview content and all I get is just the "loading circle" and it does that continually. Then after about one minute of this, it just drops out and says something the affect of, "video player can't be downloaded". And I must point out, that "video player can't be downloaded" message is only for Races, or Live Video. For everything else, (i.e. post-race conferences, interviews or just extra content videos) I won't even get the loading circle. For all the other stuff it just won't load and most of the time, it's just black screen.

    So at least with Avast I can watch the races, FP's and Q's. Haven't tried anything else, as at this point I'm just fed up with MotoGP.com's website.

    And with that said, just finished watching Q2, looks like Marquez will win again tomorrow. The race will be for 2nd place. So we are in for another crapper...

    Yeah just read about that one last night about him talking to Petronas as well and HRC are livid about it, guess this one has more validity to it than the Ducati move but we'll see how this unfolds cause it'd be a pretty fucked up move from Pramac if they do Jack Miller wrong over a has been, mainly with his great results and improvement as of late. I doubt we'll see Lorenzo ride fast ever again, the dude I hate to say it s just damaged goods and there are much better and younger riders coming up the ranks that deserve a ride, just like I am sure if Lorenzo does end up in Petronas, Quartararo will take Rossi's seat if he continues this impressive run.

    As far as other browsers giving me issues. Both Firefox and Chrome have acted up with their website.
    Hmmmm weird man, just saw the qualifiers under Chrome and no hiccups or anything and went around the site to see other stuff and no issues... Is it something in the settings of the website or something like that?

    Jack Miller is nice and all, but I've always felt he is overhyped. He's developed and he's doing well but when they moved him up from Moto3 to MotoGP, it was all hype. He never won anything(title wise) in Moto3 and skipped over Moto2. I also think his comments about Lorenzo tucking tail and running from the Repsol RCV213 are a bit rich, considering when he was on the customer Honda, he wanted off the thing so bad. At least Lorenzo is a champion(5x) and Jorge may be a dick, but what has Miller ever accomplished??

    Miller hangs out with Crutchlow way too much and he's starting to shoot his mouth off in the same fashion. I think Petrucci deserved that factory Ducati over Miller, and I think now Miller is pissed as he might lose out his satellite ride.

    If all of these rumors really start gaining traction, I can see a few things panning out:

    Lorenzo to Petronas = Fabio going to Repsol, as there might be a deal to buy out Jorge from his contract, in trade for FQ to come to Repsol. And Petronas has the money to do this.

    Lorenzo to Pramac = Miller losing his ride and potentially going to WSBK(even though he denies it) or KTM(rumors are Zarco hates the bike). OR him taking Nakagami's spot at LCR but that isn't likely as Taka is riding very well lately.

    Lorenzo to Petronas = Franco Morbidelli losing his spot and ending up who knows where, Moto2???

    Lorenzo stays at Honda = him crashing a hell of a lot more for the next 18 months.

    Lorenzo to Factory Yamaha = Rossi's retirement after 2020. I don't think we'll see Rossi go anywhere even with his dismal results this year. Rossi has some time on his side, as MV and FQ are doing better than him but are very inconsistent and he's most of the time beating them. I think he's waiting for the 2020 bike to be some sort of Godsend but I don't think it will happen. I think 2020 is Rossi's last season.

    Lorenzo to Factory Yamaha = Vinales leaving for Suzuki. This is a rumor that I've heard floating around and not much speak about it. Rumors suggest that Vinales has approached Suzuki. Meaning, Mir loses his spot and then Suzuki have a good duo in Rins/Vinales.

    Touching on the last two scenarios, if what I think happens does. Then we might see a Lorenzo/Quartararo pairing for 2021. This all impinges on Rossi retiring and Vinales back to Suzuki.

    Also one last scenario

    Lorenzo to Pramac = Miller losing his spot and Alex Marquez being brought in on a one year deal for Repsol Honda. He looks to win the Moto2 championship and it would be a Marquez bros INC. at Honda for a year at least.


    Lastly,

    I have got my Avast browser to work with MotoGP.com so I'm using that at the moment.

    Now that was a good race!! Congrats to Dovi!!

    That's how you beat Marquez, just stuff him in a corner and not let him out.

    About time we got a good race til the end.

    Yeah that was a great scrap man, clinical for sure. Dovi late trailbraking technique going into the second to last corner was a thing of beauty man, that's what gave him enough to hound to the last corner dive. What an awesome race, I am very surprised the Yamahas finished so high up, FQ keeps impressing race by race as of how he can make that Yamaha work so well given all its woes still and sad that he outrides both the factory guys almost every round lol, that kid is thirsty. Very hard earned race win for Dovi for sure, hope this gives the team and himself a bit of push and fuel to take it to Marquez in these remaining rounds and see if they can put the pressure on and close that gap in points. How about Pecco and Olivieira man, they finished really well this round and rode superbly. So much upcoming talent in this paddock is amazing. Bummer for Pol Espargaro on the KTM to stall out mid corner after showing some decent pace on the weekend... Onto Silverstone!

    Some good races today, MotoGP/2/3 and MotoAmerica.

    Rumors running around Zarco requested contract termination with KTM, don't know where he would go from there.

    yeah did see all races across the board and they were great, glad to see Fenati climbing back out from the cellar after his dumb decisions almost cost him his career. It is official that Zarco won’t continue with KTM but yeah sort of a knucklehead move since there are no open seats left in GP at the moment. The guy goes into a project expecting wins and podiums his first year and quits? Doesn’t say much positive of him but that he’s just like Lorenzo and wants to reap rewards without doing horse work. If I was a team manager I wouldn’t look his way.

    So Miller re-signed with Pramac. So that puts to rest the Lorenzo speculation there. Still somewhat surprised Zarco is leaving but it looks more like KTM did the split more than Zarco.

    I'm thinking now Lorenzo will stay with Honda. I would, even if he doesn't gel with the bike next year, least he can finish the contract and then move on.

    Crashes or not but Miller deserves to stay, he has gotten some great results and would have been low from Ducati to not sign him. The pressure is on him now to deliver results though so sure hope he stays on the bike more than not. In another news, there’s talk about Redding replacing Bautista at Ducati in WSBK, can’t believe he’s seriously thinking about jumping to Honda after all their disasters in WSBK after the years
