MotoGP Grand Prix De France [Spoiler Warning]

Just gonna kick this off now.

The press conference was good. Social Media questions had me laughing. The best was Danilo answering, "What is the coolest thing about being a MotoGP rider other than racing?"

His answer and Marc's reaction were great.


I hope Zarco wins this race, but I expect Marquez to.

I also expect Rossi and Vinales to struggle despite the fact that Yamaha generally is very strong here. This race will likely expose some serious problems within the factory Yamaha garage.

I'd be very surprised in MM doesn't win - the Honda seems to be far superior to the other bikes at the moment.

In fact, I'd be surprised if MM doesn't win the majority of the races for the rest of the season, which will be a shame for the actual racing.

JL will be a rolling road block again.

CC will crash.

Zarco will finish on the podium.

Incredible qualifying.

If Zarco pulls off the win I'm gonna shed a tear. Set for a great race.

MR Masterclass, does it again.... Barring Lorenzo on a Yamaha there really is no beating this guy on a consistent basis.

Should be an easy world title this for MM and much of the same next year.

This entire season is 2014 all over again even without the crashes from the others MM was going to win the title this year. Don't forget they stole his point in Argentina. only reason it wasn't a huge win last year was all the DNF by MM. Even if lorenzo went back to Yamaha it would take 2-3 seasons for them to reverse the rossi damage there. Funny how zarco is on a lorenzo bike not the rossi developed bikes.

Gimmie 7. And marquez says the bike still isn't right.
Fuck it Gimmie 8 MM IS WINNING NEXT YEAR TOO
Thanks from jdgun

Keep in mind Yamaha last year should have had a 1-2-3. MM dominated in low 1:32 all race For mm this should be win 4 in a row and talk is he was at record pace in Italy for the tests.
Yamaha has no hope losing zarco not doing anything maverick suggest and relying on rossi to solve the problems lol

The GOAT can develop, fix and ride around all problems when it comes to bikes.. As evident by his stint on the Ducati, and return to Yamaha. To bad Lorenzo torpedoed his career with ducati, like so many others.
