Sandgroper should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Moto GP2025

The Musical Chairs are about to start with Manufacturers lining up to secure their budding stars for 2025. Its going to be an interesting second half of the Season. Whats your thoughts?

I think a younger Jorge will get promoted to alongside Peco, as surely Marcs personal sponsors (redbull) will take precedent over any move?

Does Marc stay with Grecini? More than likely or does he get wooed to KTM with Redbull and push aside Acosta who stays with GASGAS.

Does Jack Miller end up on a bike next year or does he end up in WSB?

Along with the F1 Musical Chairs this looks to be a interesting watch for the second half of the signing season.

Today, the 6th weekend of MotoFIM is beginning. With 5 GPs already done, there begin to appear some patterns. Some people seems to be on target for the title. Others have already a hard path ahead.

I have done some graphics showing the gaps respect the leader, in the three cats MotoGP, Moto 2 and Moto 3 (no Moto E at the moment). The graphs are done in such a way that the vertical scale shows the level of difficulty of overcoming that gap.I.e.,one can see how the gaps go harder or easier across the season.

Riders are represented by colors more or less related to bike color. The order of the drivers is the same as in the Chamnpionship table. The lowest one is the leader, and the higher he is, the worse is his situation.

The order of charts is:
MotoGP: Martin, Bagnaia, MMarquez,...
Moto2: SGarcia, Roberts, Aldeguer,...
Moto3: Holgado, Alonso, Veijer,...

If I had to choose one, I'd choose Martin.

If I could play more conservatively, I'd pick Martin, Bagnaia... Marquez!

If I wanted to break the bank, I would go with Acosta!! Imagine the bet!

Look at Bastianini, nobody talk about him. Ha has not done anything heroic yet and he is in the mix from the beginning. He has a gold card with his late race pace.

What do you think about this season?

Note: sorry if my future reply is delayed, I see the practices and races of the 4 cats delayed in Internet and , usually, I take days to watch all the races! Until then, I should not enter here...

There's a lot of ppl who think Marquez to Ducati is as good as done just because Martin went to Aprilia. I really hope Im wrong but I expect Ducati to sign a boring #2 rider. Either Beast is resigned or maybe Bezzechi. Bez might be ok if he gets back to 2023 form.

If Ducati really wants to win as much as possible , they'd sign either Marquez or Martin. But they probably wont.

I have no idea where Marc will go

Martin went to Aprilia because Marquez had already been chosen over him for the factory Ducati team.
Very strange decision by Ducati team boss IMHO.

I am pretty sure that out of the two Pecco only wanted one of them there, bizarre decision, but I hope he falls flat on his face and I respect Martin a bit more for sticking his vees up at them especially if he wins the title!!

Pecco definitely didn’t want Marquez.He made that point very clearly.He (and all but one other rider on the grid) regard Marc as pretty toxic.Insiders strongly suggest that Dall’lgna really doesn’t like the feeling that he is being dictated to by riders.When Martin said works team or I leave that meant he was going to be pushed out the door.When Pecco said anyone but Marquez for a team mate that pretty much ensured he would get Marquez.
In this deal the team General Manager has a bigger ego than the riders.

I just wish now for Martin to tie up the championship and at least walk away with the #1 to deprive Ducati of that.

Me too.Im pretty neutral about cheering for anyone in Moto GP normally but he’s been messed around by Ducati management ever since they inexplicably preferred Bastiani to him.

Very good question. Another one: can Pramac do anything against the works team will?

SO changing of the guards is happening across a few teams it seems.

Interesting move by Vinale's

Now Jack and Fernandes to find seats amongst others.
