MotoGP 2019 **SPOILERS**

First race is coming up. Winter testing appears to indicate Yamaha have worked some things out. Cal not happy with the new Honda's front end. Lorenzo getting comfortable on the Repsol. Mark is Mark. Suzuki looks to be taking a step forward as well. It's gonna be weird with Tech3 on the KTM.

Yamahas (well Mav) looked good last year as well, then they fell of a cliff. so I hope for them both & the championship the team have a better package ready!!!

MM & JL are still recovering from their surgeries, but both have already shown major improvements. MM more quickly, but JL will improve faster with Honda than he did with Ducati I think.

Rins finished last year with some great placings and looks like his is shaping up to have a good year.

The Duc's have looked good, with props to Petrux putting in some major work for his tyre longevity. I really hope he has a good year. He's worked hard to get & deserve that factory ride IMO.

I'm also REALLY looking forward to seeing who will get the Rookie trophy this year

Personality helps, but ATTITUDE is everything!

Long time Capirossi fan here, neutral after his retirement and disgussed after the 2015 fixed championship...

Dorna has turned Motogp into a pig circus with the spanish riders but anyway the start of the season is always interesting!

VR was no.1 yamaha, finished third and beat Mav fair and square on the track last year so maybe the old man deserves at least a little of your respect!

I'm not sure if I'm rooting for Bagnaia or Olivera. Mir may surprise on the Suzuki.

I'm hoping Zarco can be competitive on the KTM as well.

FP2 and Marquez throws down the fastest lap ever at Losail. Plus, the Honda has bested the Ducati in straight line speed. If that holds true, #93 will be unstoppable.

Well...what an amazing weekend in every class!!!!!

Would love to have seen what FQ could have done if he hadn't stalled it. DAMN shame for him!
I thought BOTH Suzukis were amazing; especially Rins and didn't the Ol' man do well from way back on the grid!!!

Back to the drawing board again for Mav. New crew chief, number and paint job still hasn't fixed his issues. Seems he can't actually race anyone other than the track at the moment!?

I haven't yet watched Moto2 or 3 but if they are half as good as this I'll be happy. Moto3 always puts on a good show at Losail.

And in other news, Alvero Bautista is taking it to Johnny Rea over in WSBK. He's really taken to the Panigale. We'll see when they get to the European rounds. Kind of sucks he can't get a ride in MotoGP but Karel Abraham gets to be a back marker year in and year out.
