Personally I think the future isn't to bright for the Japanese manufacturers in Moto GP unless they have a big resurgence in sales to fund development and invest in bringing riders on like Rossi is doing with his race school. Would love to see April's get some serious funding long term to invest in more development.

Be interesting to see how it pans out for Honda and MM, as they say, nobody bigger than the name over the door

Think a 100k is conservative bearing in mind an engine is 200 to 250k and frame and swing arm 500k brakes 70k all in euros but who knows what it actually costs honda.

maybe there should be a rule limiting the number of times you can crash at each venue.

Maybe thatís Hondas bank balance, got to sell a lot of bikes to fund that lot, say 100k a crash

Anybody hear Neil Hodgson comments about the Ducati, even on the slower tracks they are still quick now due to them squaring off and just using the power to drive out of them

Rat boy and Honda just seem in a total mess, donít know where they are going and as for Yamaha, gone!

I think mm will leave Honda for another team next season. Or listen to his grandad and retire.

The rules of the long lap penalty is the rider must keep in-between the white lines. Acosta crossed them and hit the outside green paint so should of had to re take it.

I think so for the moment, just hope they become a bit more competitive for next season.

Just read Quat has a long lap penalty at Silverstone for taking out Espargaro. Personally I thought there was room for him to try it, losing the front end was incedental, it didn't seem like he went to fast in but I guess its conjecture.

Might have my wires crossed here but that long lap where he went in the green, if rules are rules.....

Marc Marquez declaring himself fit with 2 broken ribs, what are Honda thinking, simply shocking, glad race directors stepped in.

Jake Dixon, I was rooting for him, is it 9 third places before finally getting his win, thats what you call quite consistent. The futures looking very bright indeed.

well chuffed for Jake Dixon,what a ride..well pished of with race control though. demoting brad binder twice from 3rd place, in the sprint then again in main race. ok rules are rules but that track seriously needs some of the green paint removed in places. and race control need to re look at acostas long lap penalty in the Moto 2 race. or is it because Acosta is going to be dornas next mm..

Yep, how can he blame the bike for rear ending someone
It was embarrassing, you could almost hear his brain whirring, stare at the bike, no that'll look silly so I'll half heartedly gesticulate at the other rider...

I do hope Bez can do the double today, he didn't seem that confident in his post race.

As for the Ducati, how they can still be the fastest on the straight by some way is just crazy though KTM seem to be catching up.

Edit, did you see Bez blast past Bag on that corner, I could have sworn he was going wide, thats a lesson in late braking I didnt think was possible, but it is the sprint, perhaps Bag didn't want to push it.

You don't get to win six Moto GP world championships without a huge amount of talent but I think the bike was then the best out there and had been tailored to suit him as nobody else could match his success. Things moved on though and rival manufacturers caught up , Ducati always had the performance but only Casey stoner could ride it but now they have improved it's handling and made all that power more user friendly. Always been a Ducati fan and Audi have helped refine them and bring reliability they once lacked but for me they've lost a little of their character that made me love them.
