This was the last time we went to Aragon. What a race...


MM93 is back and Bagnaia is after 4 consecutive wins (most ever for Ducati). Fabio is very encouraged with the results of the 2023 engine testing, but is still riding a 2022 spec this week. He may be trying a new chassis, though, on one of the worst Yamaha tracks in the series.

Aragon is one of Aleix' best tracks and Maverick is really doing well lately. Others can get on the podium.

With the last seats announced for 2023, it's going to be all-out for the last six races of the season. 5 races in the coming 6 weeks... most, outside of Europe. The title hunt is still open.

Exciting.

Watched last year's Aragon race, yesterday, as preparation for the weekend. What a race.

Only the first day, so not really too telling, but FQ20 was doing quite well this morning. We will see how tomorrow goes.

The Ducati army swarming all over pole this weekend, more or less as expected. Will be a hard race for FQ20 tomorrow. Good news for Fabio is that he has great race pace on used tires, if you look at the FP4 results.

Marc did not make Q2, but a race is something else altogether.

Honestly, the FP and qualifying sessions have become quite boring. You know there will be Ducatis on the front rows, with Aleix and Fabio trying to sneak in.
Yep, pretty much the same story for a while. Shame. Ducati has a double advantage. A very good bike and 8 bikes on the grid. A lethal combination for the others.

For sure Marquez is back .........
This guy has a history of leaving a path of destruction but of course it's never his fault. Not to mention, he is a rude *** just like his sour faced looking brother. The series is much better without him
It's a shame that he is affecting the championship run, this year, in such a way. Two crashes for the day and he caused both. May cost FQ the title with irresponsible and dangerous riding.

And as always, the stewards and Dorna are letting his shameful riding go unpunished. If it was anyone else on the grid, they would be severely sanctioned.

Not the first time he has ruined another riders championship. Just look how the other riders behave off the bike and compare that to him and his brother. They both rarely smile or interact with anyone, the sport is better off without him.
