5th or 6th fastest in FP2 at one point on a damp track that he's never seen before, on a bike he's only riding for the first time that day - good work!

He must be a very able young racer - hope he goes well.

Also this:

A bit more variety in Moto2 next year. Will be good to watch.

Joe Roberts moving teams, but staying in the category.

There's a lot of static in the air claiming the absence of MM93 is "good for the sport", enabling other riders to have a better chance at victories.. They never brought it up when Vale was dominating.. The new talent just keeps getting incredibly better. It's exciting stuff to watch.

MM93 missing sucks, worst of all for him, noting I will die being a huge Dr. fan.
If he'd been riding in a fully healthy in shape condition this season, we'd still have seen the dramatic improvements in the other riders and bikes that we did see this season.
I look forward to seeing him back in action next year, including having Pol as his team mate.

By their logic, should Muhammad Ali have quit the game? Tiger Woods? Michael Jordan? Suck it up, buttercups.

In response to K1w1Boy's original post- I'd love to see an American on the grid. It's been a long time

Yeah, too long - it always spices up the rivalry and the racing, having an American in the mix...

They grow too many of them too big to be a good size and fit on MotoGP bikes.
Too many pinner runts these days in the top class.
