The news said his times were quite good but yeah no proof. Most likely still too far off hence nothing was released. if it was pretty close, surely they'd post the times.

Brilliant pole lap by VR who came from far behind but the race will be tough. Hopefully it will be another great fight between the top 3. Like it or not VR needs JL's help to beat MM too.

MM deserves the title this year, he is more matured in his racing and won despite not having the best bike at least initially. No doubt he is indeed the best rider now.

If you read Lorenzo's comment after his crash, it's similar. He said there's no feedback from the front. They chosen the wrong front tyres I guess.
*
The odd thing is, if you look at JL's crash replays, he seemed to lost the rear first! biggrin.gif
VR also said he did not go wide or off-line but from the replays it seemed like he did go a bit wide then crash but at least he did lost the front pretty obviously.

Still battle for top Yamaha though

Yeah that's the only thing left now, some intra-team battle for pride. Anyway I've already started to take it that way since a few races back coz I already felt that it's too difficult to catch MM. So to me the fact that MM has sealed the title doesn't change much.

Marc is a deserved champ for 2016. He rode with a lot of maturity this year. Unlike JL who totally sucked in the wet races this year and VR who's well...getting old perhaps

Yeah, if VR like 10 years back vs MM now, then that will be a hell of a fight! biggrin.gif

Changing of the guard I guess. MM is a talented racer no doubt about that. He'll continue to be at the top of the championship for many years to come. After VR retires JL would be in the twilight years of his career as well. Wonder who can take the fight to MM. MV maybe? hmm.gif
*
Not sure if MV can match that level. So far he seems fast but I think has not stand out as much as VR or MM back then when they rose to the top. He has not totally dominate his team mates so far. VR when at the top of his game destroyed all his team mates comprehensively. VR only lost to JL once he starts getting old. MM now has dominated all his team mates including a very fast DP. I suppose we'll just have to wait & see next year when MV teams up with VR whether he can match or even beat VR.

VR broke his pinky finger during the Motegi crash, hopefully not hamper him for the next race.

Ultimately in MotoGP, the riders have much more say in decision making coz they're the ones who really feel the track and the engineers cannot communicate thru the radio like car racing. VR basically screwed up in Q1 today by staying too long on his first set and not change early enough, just like the Misano race last year. Again despite so much experience, VR still often makes mistakes in changing condition.

JL at least did better in Q1 but, man he was pathetic in Q2, practically got humiliated left right and center by the rest of the riders! His best Q2 lap time was much slower than Moto2 laptimes!

Nope.

If Marquez crashed in Motegi and Aussie, means zero points for him.

Thus championship hunt still alive for Rossi and Lorenzo.

Hahaha yes but that's all moot point now, the title is his already.
Anyway good fight back thru the field from VR, just missing the final few tenths to be able to challenge CC. At least he totally crushed JL in that race. I think he should get 2nd place without much difficulties now.

Yes but what to do lor, Yamaha did not manage to keep up their bike development to stay clear of Honda and the 2 riders somehow messed up more often.

Actually Yamaha still the bike to beat, even Lorenzo admit MM won the championship by keeping consistency and less fall this year on less superior Honda bike is amazing. Just Rossi and Lorenzo making more mistake this year so handed the championship to MM
*
Hmm initially that was true especially since Honda was struggling on acceleration but after mid year, that doesn't seem really true anymore. It seems at least Honda has caught them and be on about even par, but this is impossible to tell for sure as MM has never ride on the Yamaha and vice versa. MM says since Aragon he felt his bike has already return to how he wants it, so it means it's already fast enough to beat the Yamaha. Anyway yeah, MM has raced more maturely this year with the least mistakes while VR & JL despite their vast experience actually made more mistakes, so still huge credit to MM.

Riders championship is over; Constructors and Team is still on.
I think Yamaha can clinch that with Rossi.

And Repsol Honda can only rely on MM.

Dani's gone.

And his substitute are not doing so well.

Yeah, Yamaha still got good chance to win the team & constructor title but would need JL to also do his part too.

Lorenzo says he is not slow in the rain

He always is slow in the rain i think

There's always a reason

He got third because people in front of him crashed and he was like 8 seconds back. Sorry Lorenzo fans, I just can't help it laugh.gif

Hopefully next year will be much better for Motorsports. I think the dramas at Yamaha and inconsistent Ducati certainly helped Marquez to his 3rd Word Title. Interesting to see how JLo will fare on new bike, new paddocks and most importantly he's going to work with an entirely new crew members. By the way, it is astonishing to see how much Aleix Espargaro has regressed. He was pretty much the second rider behind Maverick Vinales this year. Very good rider but for some reason always stuck with new developing team. This certainly hinder his progress as a rider.

Meanwhile in World Superbike Aprilia and Ducati will be providing better support for their respective team in year 2017. Aprilia were doing good before they eventually pull the plug starting year 2015. Good to see Laverty and Melandri are back to provide some competition. Chaz Davies is doing well as well. The only downside is former World Champion Sylvain Guintoli has yet to secure any ride. Certainly age is not on his side (He's turning 35 next year) but he did better on the same Yamaha compared to the much younger Alex Lowes even though he missed couple of rounds due to broken foot.
*
MM wins the title mainly because:
1. He is more mature now in his race approach, more thinking of the big championship picture to maximize points.
2. Both Yamaha riders made too many mistakes.
3. Yamaha failed to improve the bike further after 2nd half of the season, or Honda had caught up.
4. Ducati still not consistent enough.

The main things to watch for next year are how MV will compare against VR and how JL will perform in the new team as well as how Ducati can improve further.

Next year is a totally different ball game, Aprilia has improved a lot in the last few races, we know Suzuki has the potential to challenge(with Iannone on it), also KTM is entering the game, which could be a surprise. We also have the grid shaken up pretty good with different bikes.
*
I don't have high expectations yet on Aprilia. Suzuki also I don't think can consistently challenge Yamaha & Honda especially with Iannone who is rather prone to crashing, maybe can steal a win or 2 but I doubt they will be challenging consistently yet. I expect still to be Yamaha vs Honda battle with Ducati as the more consistent challenger of those 2.
