I foresee Quartararo taking over Rossi's seat very soon and with MV actually producing some decent results as of late seems like Yamaha may have finally found a bit of a break. Super tough round for Ducati, Dovi looks insanely frustrated and yeah that tumble that Petrux took was insanely nasty, his right hand didn't look too good when he removed the glove there and was starting to swell up, hope it's just a sprain and not a break. Nakagami is just insane haha, very good ride by this dude being as banged up as he is.

    Yeah it's beyond me why Rossi was able to produce such a great lap in Q1 and then chokes in Q2... Physically he is there as we have seen him be good still but I think mentally he is starting to check out, I truly believe that we may hear of his retirement at the end of the season. Yamaha sure as hell isn't going to renew his contract and with so much young upcoming talent, I believe it's perhaps a great idea for him to move on... hell of a career without a doubt and what he's done even at 41 years old is something of astonishment but just gotta know when to stop and I believe this is a good time for him to call it and not have it all end in ridiculous embarrassment because at the rate this season is going for him, it's only a matter of time before he hits rock bottom and on a factory ride of all things.

    The WSBK championship just took a huge turn with Bautista starting to choke badly, just crashed out of the donington park race and Rea is owning that wet race.
    Kind of what I was keeping on a eye on in WSBK. I think Bautista has done well but it ain't over til it's over and for some reason he is just throwing it all away. Pressure is getting to him and he can't handle it. Which is why he's no longer in MotoGP. If you can't ride well or be consistent then you get moved on. He was dominating in WSBK but that was when he had nothing to lose. Now, he's on the verge on bringing the title back to Ducati and he's coming apart like a cheap watch.

    I didn't want to mention it but yeah, Rossi's time in Q1 would have put him on the second row but then he goes out and puts in that garbage performance in Q2. Like I say, he deserves every bad start he's getting because at this point, he's earning them all on his own. Here's an idea, if the hard tire was working for you in Q1, then use it again in Q2. The soft gets him no where and it showed.

    I'm with you, I think he's starting to check out of the sport. He hasn't won sh*t in two years, he hasn't set any kind of fast laps or poles. He's just deflated and boring at this point. He hasn't been the same since 2016.

    He is contracted through 2020. So I think unless he just really gives up this year, we will see him for one more year and then that is it. What I honestly think he is waiting for is the 2020 bike they will test in Brno. If Rossi loves the bike, then we may see him come back in the second half of this year and put in some results. Mainly because he would be looking forward to the 2020 bike. If the 2020 bike is a stinker, then we won't see jacksh*t from Rossi for the rest of the year or next year for that matter. Which is kind of been par for the course for him for the last year or so.

    I wouldn't put a ton of stock in Vinales just yet either. He's shown he can win races but he's so up and down during the race starts.

    Fabio is fast but he needs to control his emotions better. Young, dumb and full of cum is a perfect representation of his demeanor(guess we just have an asshole shortage..) <----which epic movie is that a reference from

    Another semi-snooze fest unfortunately, during the practices and the time attacks it showed to be a bit more than this but can't gauge anymore really. Marquez is the only rabbit in a turtle race these days. Rins finding ways to tumble, Ducati salvaged a decent result considering how bad their weekend went, Rossi keeps making dumb tire choices, a M/M? Really? Goes to what you said, if the H/M combination was working well why fuck with it? At least he finished this race. Great consistent pace by MV and cool head fending off Crutchlow who was on his ass the whole race so good those two didn't crumble under pressure. This title is pretty much a wrap now and we are barely going into the summer break, wonder if he'll clinch before Japan this year

    and now Rossi comes out blaming Michelin reps for the tire choice lol oh man he's not helping himself right now. So the track is super demanding on tires due to the high speed corners it has and hard braking areas and also how he rides he shreds through tires, more than half the grid went for the H/M option and even the H/M is what he used for the best times yesterday and he still opts for the M/M... Hate to say it man but that's all on you and the team, not Michelin telling you.

    I'm going to have to watch the race. Just got back from doing some shooting this morning.

    His tire choice doesn't surprise me. It's almost like he's trying to suck..

    Kind of figured Marquez would smoke everyone on this one. Just looked at the final times and yeah he did. Rossi has been overtook by Vinales in the championship. It's all unraveling for the guy. Oh well, he needs to take the summer break to think some things over. Whether he wants to race or not, and if he still does then he needs to put some serious effort into turning around the second part of the season.

    I'm with you, I think barring any real foul ups or DNF's, Marquez will wrap the championship up by Motegi.

    Man watching Bautista has been just cringing, poor guy is in a bit of a slum at the moment, hope he bounces back mentally cause man if he is getting mind fucked at the moment. Good races overall at Laguna from both WSBK and AMA, those scraps in between Elias, Herrin and Baubier have been awesome. Glad to see Gerloff finally win one after a very hard year in the superbike class
