Great show.
Apart from that scrabble for the last spot on the podium, the race was a pretty tedious but as usual that incredible save from MM mid race was sensational!

I wonder what Yam' team will give to FB for the coming races apart minor changes like front fender and rear arm. What can be done in the long straights against the Ducatis?
In 2023, Suzuki throwing in the towel at the end of this season, MM could have Mir as team mate.

Did you mean FQ? All Quartararo needs is a few more ponies.

I didnt see this one coming.....

.Suzuki set to quit MotoGP at the end of 2022

This will have some mighty repercussions on the rider market, with the penultimate champion Mir and another frontrunner in Rins going to be on the market. That and will Quartar 'unsettled / unconfirmed at Yamaha it will be an interesting silly season. I imagine some riders currently out of their depth will be feeling uncomfortable about next year. Also those not perhaps performing at the level they need to (thinking Pol Espargaro at Repsol for one) I would think Honda might be keen on Mir if Fabs stays at Yamaha. Miller another we know likely out of his current seat for next year.

Less seats around aint good news for the likes of Toprak in WSBK atm.

Interesting silly season ahead in MotoGP land.

Yes, sorry JR, meant FQ you're right. Yamaha say he will have more power and in fact more everything but only for next season. Re the french GP at Bugatti, I think Fabio can match the Ducatis, there's only one long straight.

One month to know if he'll be a Yam rider again…

can't say there were long straights at Jerez .. and FQ did won in Portimao.
so i guess there's more than just top speed

me neither .. it seems they need to get into an agreement with Dorna for a 2022 exit..

surely both riders should find top rides
so .. who's out to accommodate them?

I don't think anyone saw this announcement from Suzuki. It's a shame after they have made a great return to the sport after a few years out, culminating in them winning the championship with Mir two years ago. We'll see if Dorna allow them to go through with it

Hope the weather will be fine all way long at Bugatti track. With Suzuki probably missing next year, discussions are in full swing. Can the tyre pressure rule be policed, will P Espargaro keep his place and so on! Fabio is expecting a warm welcome from his numerous fans together with Johann no doubt they'll gt it.

With no less than 110 000 spectators, this GP is already a success.

The pole is for Bagnaia/ Ducati seconded by Miller/ Ducati, A Espargaro/ Aprilia, Quatararo/ Yamaha, Bastianini and Zarco/ Ducati, Mir and Rins/ Suzuki, Martin/ Ducati, M Marquez and P Espargaro and Nakagami/ Honda. Six Ducatis in the 13th first places…
Bagnaia makes the fastest lap ever with 1'30"450. FQ (1'30"699) says he's not to worried about his fourth place. Pourvu que ça dure!

No surprise to see so many spectators there, the French GP is already a success. Great pole by Bagnaia, with Miller alongside him, but Espargaro should be fun to watch and never rule out Fabio. The others will do their best to stay in touch. Once again Honda struggling

What a lap by Bagnaia though.
