    Agreed, everyone should be judged on the calibre of their relatives.

    Considering Lorenzo's lack of success on the Honda, I doubt that Zarco will be having much fun on it. Both of them favour a smooth precise style, which seems to be a better fit with the Yamaha M1's, perhaps Suzuki

    The KTM's are thought to be a handful like Honda too, trading off mid-corner stability. Zarco had a rough time performing worse than team mates .

    Zarco will be doing his reputation an injury to attempt to adapt to Taka's second rate 2018 Honda

    Simoncelli believes more harsh punishments are required for on-track stupidity. “Penalties are the only way to make sure they think twice or even three times before they start to overtake at the limit. It’s important to work towards limiting this flash of heroism,” he said.

    Freddy Spencer - "Spencer also competed in both the 250cc and 500cc Grand Prix World Championships, winning both titles in the same year. "
    Pre-requisite for inclusion was a win at Leguna (sic) Seca on a two stroke.

    While I would put Freddie right up there on raw talent, his longevity was non existent.

    I think Zarco is contracted as a Yamaha test rider next year. Potential 2021 ride on a Honda though pending Lorenzos performance, or Cals retirement through injury?
    Nah he's yet to sign. Lin Jarvis was saying he hoped to have it squared away during/after the flyaways.
    Can Zarco ride the Hoonda though - this stint will answer that question. I'm thinking Puig hopes Lorenzo pulls the pin. His confidence is shattered.

    Johann Zarco is set to replace Takaaki Nakagami at LCR Honda for the last three rounds of the 2019 MotoGP season, Motorsport.com has learned.

    Nakagami is suffering from a similar shoulder problem to the one that afflicted Marc Marquez last season, and for which the world champion had surgery last December.

    I saw it in this crash.net article: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cra...tle-haul%3famp

    Steady Eddie Lawson, obviously
    Pfft, couldn't even win three in a row. Also lost the title one year to some bloke who won 500 & 250 titles that year.

    Rainey was steadier.
