    Holy shit I’m glad I picked this season to start watching motogp again. This last race was great. That track was so cool. And good for Marquez nearly taking his 1st win.

    There has been 8 different winners - but the championship leader is NOT one of them!
    This could knock out Nicky Hayden's effort of a title with only 2 wins.

    Every race has been a real joy to watch. This season has really had it all. I had never seen this Aragon track before and damn does it look fun.

    They camera placements for MotoGp even make the shared F1 tracks look different simply because they film from completely different angles and locations.

    Well another race, mostly quiet till the last lap!!
    And a new world champ, who has won a race. Unless he wins the last round, Mir will push Hayden back on the list of "title with least race wins"

    The commentators at the previous round mentioned someone who won a minor-class championship with zero wins in the 60s, I think it was.

    For MotoGP/500cc its 2 wins, happened a few times in the first few seasons (a lot less races) but only once since then - 2006.
    So that record is broken or equalled.
    Also "least career wins by world champ" is currently 3 (from over 200 race starts!), so that is also broken but could be unbroken if Mir win a few more races in his career.

    Big fire in the pit buildings this weekend at the circuit where the Argentine GP is held. The 2021 race has already been postponed to November, so shouldn’t affect that in any way.

    Thankfully no significant damage to the adjacent Fangio Museum. Workers moved a lot of the most significant pieces from there as a precaution.

    Investigations into the cause of the fire are ongoing.

    And it starts again...

    Surprised Marquez is still out. I know he has been on a street bike doing testing but its not a good sign if he isnt ready for the first round. With this much time in recovery it could be months more.

    Any forecasts on champion?

    Im putting my heart out there - Jack Miller.
    Was consistent last year but had some bad luck with the bike. He seems to have improved his 2nd half of the race, prev years he would often just slide from top 3 to 10th.
    Not sure if lightning can strike twice for Mir.

    One thing I do know - Im excited!

    I would also love to see Miller pull it out.
    If this season is as entertaining as last then we are all winners
