Here we go again.
Back to the twilight zone? 9 races in 11 weeks
Misano has been resurfaced so Michelin have a fourth variation of a front tyre, just in case. It’s asymmetric with extra hard right side
Four front tyres are available for Misano

Who’s going to win?
Someone in this group, FQ20, AD04, JM43, BB33, MV12, TN30, VR46, JM36, MO88, PE44, FM21, JZ05, AR42, FB63.
Forget the rest.
Will the Yamaha motors detonate. Vinales has 3 motors left.

Home race for Rossi, will he announce Petronas deal or say he’s had enough?
Razlan Razali denies talking to Dovi which means he’s been talking to Dovi, putting pressure on Rossi?
Dovi will either be a test rider for Repsol 2021 or riding in a Suzuki satellite team if Suzuki bring forward that satellite team from 2022 to 2021
A lot of teams would be keen to get Dovi signed in some capacity, (test rider? consultant?) to get Ducati secrets.

Best series for years:cool:

4 KTM and 4 Yamaha in top ten after FP2. Honda, Suzuki and Ducati nowhere.
MV12 set his fastest time with a rear tyre that had 23 laps on it.
If he doesn't go to sleep for the first 10 laps (or his motor blows up) he is looking good for a win.
Binder could win if he can qualify on front two rows.
Interesting FP3, FP4 and qualifying to come.

Thought it was too hard to pick eliminated who wasn't going to win. Looks like the 4 Yamahas will be racing each other, daylight next followed by the rest.

Good pick for the win.
Shame VR46 just missed out on the podium. Still hoping he will be up there some time this season.

The way this season is going Rossi might even get a win or a championship. Yamaha management must be thinking have they punted the wrong rider to Petronas.
