We are not even sure if the first few races will still go on with this unpredictable pandemic!

I think MM will be on the grid. In Motogp riders timeline, it is already more than enough time to recover. Recover is one thing, getting back to optimum fitness is another. Hopefully he makes it the whole season next year(but please don't win too much lol).

If MM returns with full fitness next year, I suspect he could be more freshly motivated and hungry to get back beating the crap out of everyone again! 🤣

Next year there are many variables to take into account. For one, the MM Honda has changed a lot to suit the other riders. If he can adapt his style to it then fine, if not he has to change back the bike. Suzuki is stronger, KTM could still improve more next year. Not sure about Ducati but Yamaha has Crutchlow now to develop the bike. At the moment we can only wait and see. Actually I can't wait for next season to start.

Not sure how far has Honda changed their bikes, but my guess is not that much until MM will struggle a lot on it. I think MM should not have too much difficulties either way.

Suzuki now has strong race pace but they need to still up their pace bit and increase a lot in qualifying.

For Duc, JM seem getting better but I don't they they will be consistently strong enough for title challenge.

Yamaha should still be strong. Their problem aside from the tricky/inconsistent setup of the bike is they have too many similar level riders that can take away wins and points from each other! Morbi was earlier thought to be lower level than FQ and MV but this year proves that he could be right up there too and his confidence should be sky high now.

It's not something I'd call pretty, but looks a bit futuristic.

We will see.

Bezzechi turned down Aprilia offer lol. Seems not everyone desperate to get into MotoGP. Good move I think. A bad bike will not show his full potential, later become like Rabat, always at the back. or Tom Luthi or Sam Lowes, 2 fast riders in Moto2 but forgotten in MotoGP then move back. Who knows, maybe there's a VR46 Sky Racing Suzuki Team in 2020.

Duc looking strong with Jack on top fp3 and Dovi in 4th plus Zarco in 6th which bodes well to try win the constructor title for Duc. Rins for Suzuki looks good in 3rd but Mir only 15th so need to go Q1. Morbi also only managed 11th. VR is embarrassingly 1.5sec slower and down in 20th! Maybe time for him to retire after next year already, he is obviously getting slower everytime now.

Yeah, so looks like it's between Miller vs Rins for the Duc vs Suzuki constructor title battle.

I genuinely didn't expect Gardner would win on last year's Kalex. Will probably get more next year with KTM Ajo.

Mir could've been in top 10 if he didn't hit Zarco.

And now those hits proved to be costly.

Miller got his revenge over Morbi and Duc wins manufacturers title. Dominant win by Miguel to cap off a great year for KTM.

Just realized that Yamaha overtakes Suzuki and VR ends up so low in 15th even behind the rookie Alex M. Who would've thought in such open season, VR did his worse!

It's incredible the 2020 M1 started the season in high, dominating 1-2, then keep rolling back and ended the last race with 11th, 12th, and 14th.
Meanwhile 2019 M1 achieved better result with FM. It's funny the satellite team and older bike beats them!

Morbi on the 19 M1 might've won the title if not for that 1 retirement due to the valve issue. Yamaha seems got loss of direction in their development, maybe the 3 riders gave different inputs on how to solve the same issues, while the 19 bike was able to focus more coz only 1 rider input.

What a season! What a season ender! I am totally giving this season 5 stars out of 5.No matter who ended first and who ended last, virtually everyone had their ups and downs(except Rabat maybe). Same goes to Moto3 and Moto2.

Kinda sad after the race when everyone doing their farewells. Some people leaving and some jumping teams. Even when Lorenzo left it was like nothing special. Images of Rossi hugging the team members, LCR's goodbye to Cal was really touching.

Can't wait for next season to start!!
