Valencia gp (spoilers)

This is it, we are here again.

Miracles happen, but Dovi needs an unlikely win in Valencia paired with a DNF by Marquez in order to manifest the impossible.

Clearly, the money is on MM. I doubt he will take many chances, knowing he only needs to finish 11th or better in order to secure the title.

Let's hope they both make the podium. Dovi deserves a good finish here...if not the whole pie.
Thanks from Phl and Mrdcook2

Dovi has been very consistent and a class act unfortunately for him he had the perfect Ducati season and still couldn't get it done. 3 dnf by Marquez the season really shouldn't have been close but I like dovi a lot so very happy for him.

Whatever the outcome Dovi can hold his head up high. He did a great job this year.

I'm rooting for Desmo Dovi, best hope is some Italian nationalism comes into play, along with sweet revenge. No matter what MGP has put on one hell of a show this year. And I sure as hell hope Dovi gets a BIG FAT raise in pay.

i hope rossi gets in there and "tries for the win", just like marquez did at sepang in 2015.

i still cant believe what a dick he (i.e., marquez) was/is for doing that.

Look at the Yamaha struggle, and Marquez is the only routinely running up front. Even with all of Ducati's problems, maybe it's best bike on the grid. Jorge showed glimpses of potential, Petrucci was competitive.

Yamaha is having problems with the new bikes , I expected more from Viņales this year . last years bike looks to be better How is that possible ? from the interviews with Yamaha it looks like they have lost the plot . literally admitting they don't know why the bike is worse than last years bike. and admitting they don't know what to do. don't care about yamaha as much as ducati but I find it interesting they are in such disarray in such a short time.

I'm not on the band wagon of I hope Rossi pays marquez back for the stuff from 2015 IMO poor form .



I will be pulling for ducati and Dovi but if marquez wins I will not be disappointed I just don't see how you could not respect his talent (I feel the same way about all the Mgp riders, but marquez is a bit of an enigma)
I do hope there is some real racing in the first few laps so at least the final run for the championship is a nail biter .
