    As for Ducati looking bad/disloyal - that is not new. They were working to swap out Stoner when he got ill not long after he won their first / only title
    And IIRC offered Jorge more money than they ever offered him despite Jorge, at the time not being a world champ.

    That's why I reckon they should just go "fk it, let's swap".
    Miller to HRC and Ducati can have Lorenzo.

    As for "would Marquez have a 58 point lead if Ducati had Lorenzo" - My guess is, most likely.
    Given Marc has only finished first or second (and a DNF) - that's a tough ask for anyone to best.

    Lorenzo, Zarco, Redding, Bautista - who goes where:

    Ducati looks bad in all of this. Certainly won't encourage loyalty from Miller and will make others a bit skeptical:

    Yeah - my PSB bookmark used to take me to the subscriptions page so it was easy to see if my sub'd threads had updated.
    Then go to unread posts.

    That doesn't work well in this current form, and I sometimes need to go to the notifications page.

    Its usability is ... sub-optimal

    Again? It's still broken in that its user-friendly functions are gone. No new/latest posts appearing. This is the only thread I go to/play in now.

    I think the forum is broken again. It is suddenly showing posts from 3 years ago

    When did he purposely hit Rossi? Argentina? When Rossi left the door open but refused to pick the bike up.

    It really does seem there's no middle ground with Marc - people either like him or despise him. But I have no hesitation in saying there's a decent number who despise Marc purely because of the run ins he and Rossi have had.
    I would say the vast majority that dislike him are because of Rossi. It’s been the same for everyone who challenged or worse yet beat him. Stoner and Lorenzo are called all kinds of names because of their moaning but neither have ever moaned as much or to the level that Rossi has. Marquez gets the hate for his ‘dangerous riding’ but never once has he purposely hit another rider like Rossi.

    his incident in moto2 at Phillip Island that could’ve ended both his and the other riders careers and lives was when he was 18 and more importantly he went sent out by the team who are supposed to be the experienced adults in the garage.

    I doubt DORNA cares about team VR46 as I don't see why team vr46 would be an attraction to spectators. Do people follow team vr46 in moto2 and moto3? Motogp is about riders not teams and as Rossi's results fade, so does the "excitement" of seeing his team in Motogp. I can't see the people running the Petronas team stepping aside for VR.
    I completely agree but Carmelo was pushing this a while ago. He told Rossi that there would be two spots added to the grid if he wanted a team. The main reason I remember it is because Herve was pretty open about it and no you won’t, we have a signed agreement stating no more teams until X and I’ll take it to court if I have to. Then of course Herve was told if Rossi started a team Yamaha would supply bikes for it but wouldn’t have the capacity for Herves team. So thanks for the last 20 years Herve but get fucked. Herve made a deal with KTM that *seems* to have been better for him despite the lack of results.

    Have had a few gp things backlogged to watch - unsure if this doco about Dani was posted here, but have just watched this - The Silent Samurai: https://youtu.be/hJMITfnM1N8

    Dani as always, is articulate and insightful. Bought a tear or two to the eye.
