He's looking good at the moment, but there is still a long way to go. I do think he can win the title, he's got it in him

We’ll see if Fabio continues this form, can’t think of a reason for him not to. He has been at it long enough to know what to do and he’s already a winner coming into the season

Agreed that he still has it in him, however he will still be a fair number of points off the leader but of course it hasn't been the same guy winning so far this season. All "ifs n buts" just like a lot of championships I suppose.
The main problem with Marquez as we all know is that he pushes his luck to the crash limit and he has got away with it for years until last year. When he has another off (that he certainly will do this year) I just hope that he doesn't re-damage his arm as that will end his career.
Shame about Sam Lowes it was a "you can't win it on the first lap scenario" as far as I was concerned, but that's easy for us "sofa racing experts" to say.
As for Moto 3 that 16 year old is certainly mature beyond his age and hopefully he will continue to make the rest of the field wonder how he is doing it !

He’s always been there or thereabouts, he has done a great job in the past. No reason he can’t be champion this year

I wonder if it's worth putting a couple of bob on him ?

Seems that a gearbox gremlin is at the origin of Zarco crash.

The young Acosta in Moto3 is going to be fun to watch working his way through the ranks, what a talent. Agreed about Lowes, he was just too over anxious to regain the places he lost at the start, easy to say but he would have been much better to settle down in 4th/5th and work his way forward over the 23 laps.

I definitely agree about Quartararo, when he's on it he is like Lorenzo was at Yamaha. The thing is that he seemed to lose it after about half season last year but of course Suzuki stepped up to the mark as well.
I would think that being one of the top works riders this year will give him that edge and be more determined to be the one to beat

You do wonder if Marquez will be back to his best, especially now others seem to have taken over.

For me this is Fabio’s big chance. He certainly had it in him always, but didn’t always have the machinery, especially compared to others

He will have tough opposition in Vinales, but the champion killer instinct means he can win it

Agreed, fully. If he remains away from french journalists it will be easier for him to keeping calm, focused and determined as you say. Good thing is he can share the french media useless and constant pressure with Zarco.

Pramac Ducati has revealed that injured rookie star Jorge Martin is not expected to return to MotoGP action until Mugello.

That means Martin, who suffered multiple fractures in a huge Saturday practice accident in Portimao, will not only miss this weekend's Spanish Grand Prix - where he is confirmed as being replaced by Tito Rabat - but also the following French Grand Prix at Le Mans on May 14-16.

The Italian round is then scheduled to take place on May 28-30.

Not surprised, that was quite a big crash. He will need time to recover from that. At least he should return in good time, rather than miss out the rest of the season. It's not the end of the world. Let's see what Rabat does in his place. Hopefully he gets enough points for the team

Shame Martin has to miss a couple of rounds, but hope he's back in time for Mugello, so it's not so bad
