2020 MotoGP Season (Spoilers Inside)

Starting this a bit early as Marquez wrapped up his 8th championship today. Can MM93 match Rossi for MotoGP titles this year?

Fabio Quateraro is going to win a few races next year, I'm sure of it.

I've got nothing to say about the 2020 season - I just want a post near the top so my name always shows up when people open the thread

Oh wait - I'll log the first Lorenzo forecast in the thread - quits or is fired from Honda before the first event of the '20 season, Honda does a surprise hire out of Moto2, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Augusto Fernandez....

I can't say I'm really surprised. He has struggled for more than a year with injuries and crap results on the Honda. He's won everything there is to win and is old enough to start thinking it just isn't worth it to finish DFL in every race. I hope he isn't quitting like this, he is a great rider and this is a terrible way to wrap up a stellar career.

Agree a bad way to go out. About the time he was getting good results on the Ducati he goes to Honda and gets nothing. I'm old and have seen many folks get impatient and quit or leave something only to have the situation turn around just after they leave. There is a time to change or quit and Lorenzo need to go but cant help but wonder what if he had stayed at Yamaha or Ducati. Keep hoping that Yamaha will step it's game up and be competitive again, if Ducti could get just a bit better then maybe we could see some exciting racing.

As for renewal, I'll think about it when they get some good competition. For now BeInSports is good enough.

I was somewhat expecting it. He's had a rough go of it lately.

With all 3 classes being settled for the winners, I think the most exciting thing about this weekend for me is seeing how Sean Dylan Kelly does in Moto 2! First time on a Moto 2 bike, and he'll be running #69 number and logo as a tribute to Nicky Hayden.

I met him at NJMP when he came over to practice before MotoAmerica this year. Nice kid and really talented. He won the 2-hour team challenge race, on a GSXR 1000 that he had never ridden before, which belonged to his teammate and it was his first time riding at that track.

Trying to decide whether I'm signing up for next year. Getting tired of Marc's "tactics". I don't want to keep seeing the Marquez show every year. He looks so pathetic following his opponents every single practice session, especially last time with Quartararo qualifying and almost coming to a standstill instead of passing him.

But it worked most times. He's far from being the only one who does that. I've seen probably 1/3 of the MotoGP guys do that, and most of the people in Moto 3 do that. That's why it's called "strategy" or "tactics". Although I think it's dumb when the championship leader and winner does it when he doesn't really have to. Makes more sense when someone like Crutchlow, Miller, Iannone, Espargaro, Petrucci, etc. follows Marquez or Quartararo to gain an advantage.
