    Ok Ill hump on your new thread...

    Pecco crashing does make the season a bit more interesting. Both seemed surprised by what happened!
    Acosta is looking the goods.

    Still waiting for a ding-dong battle for the lead.

    I was just about to renew my MotoGP Video pass when I found out all sessions will be on Max this year, which I get with my phone plan, so I save $150 or whatever it is.

    I really don't like to commentator team as much as the Vid Pass one but for nothing, I'll deal with it.

    Up till maybe 2 years ago Australia had it on free to air tv. Now it's on a pay tv channel, but its the main sports provider so many people would have it.

    Do you know who the commentators are?

    I love Portugal btw. Just a fun track.

    Definitely haven’t seen a ding dong for the lead in quite some time.

    I wonder what has happened to the MotoGP dynamics to push all the old big boys…Honda/Suzuki/Yamaha…right out of the game?

    I think the Japanese manufacturers all got caught sleeping in the Aero/Electronics/ride-height stuff of the last few years.

    Not sure what happened to them.
    Motorsport can be a funny game when small rules change but it changes the balance of power between manufacturers.
    I guess there can also be a bit of complacency.
    MotoGP does have different testing rules that is suppose to help the lower placed manufacturers.

    But seems a while ago now that Honda and Yamaha dominated.

    Liberty Media acquires 86% of Dorna, thus taking ownership of MotoGP and the World Superbike Championship.
