    Would like to see Dovi take it as I'm not a MM fan. Unless MM DNFs, he'll take it. He only needs to finish in 11th or better to take it. No denying MM is good though, so he can do 11th almost in his sleep.

    Last race in Spain, MM home turf.
    More than likely will not rain there.

    Great season, BEiN sports did a great job replaying the Far East races in the US. Thanks to them.

    Will any Americans get in MGP anytime soon? Will it get renamed the SpanishGP ?

    Dovi-Hope springs eternal. Not really a MM fan. Seems like a good guy, I just don't seem to have that "connection" to either him or Honda. If he was racing for either Yamaha or Ducati, I would probably change my mind.

    Meh...

    Great season though!

    That's kind of ambiguous: who do we want to win the race or who do we want to win the championship?

    I want Dovi to win the championship but I want Rossi to win the race but Dovi needs to win the race to win the championship and only IF Marquez finishes 12th or lower. 12th would tie them on points but Dovi would get the championship because of 7 wins to 6 for Marc.

    It should be a hell of a race because: last race of the season and everybody wants to go out on a high note; everybody wants to win; nobody is going to hand the title over to Dovi or Marc. Marc just needs to stay out of trouble, NOT crash, not have a mechanical DNF, and finish 11th or better. Dovi needs to ride his ass off, not trash the tires, stay out of trouble, not crash and not have a mechanical DNF--a much tougher task.

    Also, if any of you haven't seen the Australian round of the championship, WATCH IT! It's one of the greatest, most exciting MotoGP races ever.

    I’ll look that up on YouTube. Hopefully it’s (legally) up.

    With the first-place pole in hand, Márquez's' lined up for the title. Dovi can only hope for MM to suffer a mechanical malfunction or worse. As to Yamaha, they have both Rossi and Viñales posting mediocre results from midseason, so I'm blaming the hardware/software. Even Zarco's non-OEM Yamaha team is bringing home les croissants.

    Not unexpected considering their starting positions. But exciting when MM made his save. Thought it was going to give Dovi a chance for a split second.

    PM me if you want links to the races.
