Surprising Alberto Puig! He's rejoincing M Marquez to leave Honda and will be pleased to see him win riding a Ducati Gresini in '24. First in rope to be surpised is… Carlo Pernat! Are the MotoGP shores hitted by F1 winds of change? One could wonder.

Turning MotoGP slowly into a one make series is going to loose it's appeal to me unfortunately, also I don't think that MM will get back to his old "killer" race wins ?

it seems incredible that the Japanese teams are unable to catch up, it's not just Ducati that have steamed ahead, KTM and Aprilia have shown some real pace of late.

In WSB Yamaha have "seemed" to have upped their game. but is it down to the rider just growing a bigger pair ? We will see next year when the green man gives it a go. Whatever happens it is going to be "interesting"

JRea forsaking his contracted ride to step onto Toprak's machine at Yamaha seems very strange with Toprak heading for BMW, I can only assume he knows something that we don't but if that's the case why is Toprak leaving Yamaha? Must be more than ££'s surely? The WSB 2024 grid has really been turned on its head but as in motogp Honda is showing no potential.

You're right for both I fear. But give him a good bike and we'll see again the warrior he can be. I hope. Same thing for Fabio.

Yep, Martin was the boss. Seems that japs teams are back from ashes, Fabio inspite of his engine finishing fifth is a good sign. The new Honda proto sounds promising too.

The Ducati steamroller continues with a convincing win from AlexM for Gresini in the sprint race easily dominating both Martin and Bagnia and once again the Japanese machinery absolutely nowhere but a spirited ride from KTM's Miller and Binder. The lead gap reduced now to just 11 points going into tomorrow's race and 2 further rounds to go.

Yes I was surprised that Martin didn't show his normal "clear off action" from the start. I noticed that both the Honda works riders fell off and I am also surprised that Mark hasn't pulled out altogether as he could easily really injure himself, seeing that he seems to crash at sometime during just about every weekend.
Whatever happens this year a Ducati is going to win the championship ! but with what rider? both contenders have shown their good and bad parts in the last few races and I wouldn't like to wager more than a couple of bob as to what one.

I won't say who won anything on Moto3 and 2 as I know that some of you watch on catchup, however the Moto GP race was boring after a while.

With two GP's to go - Lusail and Ricardo Tormo tracks -, can Pecco win the championship?

Another bad news for Honda Repsol, Red Bull will support Marc Marquez and his Gresini Ducati for 2024. Between rush for shelter and sponsors leave the vessel! Estrella Galicia is said to follow RB soon.

Certainly good news for Gresini considering the trauma of losing their captain a couple of years back, at the time it was rumoured that they may not continue until the captain's wife stepped up.

Mmm, tomorrow's main race will be a real crunch point after the sprint today.

Yep. Martin is really close now (only 7 points less than Bagnaia). We'll have to wait till the last round to be held at Valencia to know the '23 winner. Moto3: the champion is Juame Masia.

10 000 € is the price asked to Aleix Espargaro for smashing Franco Morbidelli during FP (tap on the helmet). The more we go the more MotoGP becomes farcical a la F1. Very sad.

It will be interesting to find out the reasons for Martin's lack of performance in the main race, he just went backwards! Fabio Di Giannantonio has been steadily improving for some time, what a shame he has no ride for 2024.

Yes, even at the start he almost fell of, it looked like he gave it too much right hand ? however I thought the traction control sorted it all out now ?
I would think it's all over now, whatever a Ducati is going to win the championship and I wonder if Mark will push his luck at the last one in Spain ? I did think that I might go to it as we are down here at the moment, whatever it will be on terrestrial TV as the Spaniards love a bit of decent sport

Maybe that was the problem throughout the race, as you say maybe the electronics were faulty and he had no traction control at all, certainly lucky to stay on the bike at the start. MM doesn't appear to have quit trying, at least he remained upright!
