My blue blooded cousin in stellies always shooting from the hip, ready to race team has 14 top 10 finishes this season and my beloved team blue Revs your heart 12,thanks mainly to a briliant FQ and not to chabby Nige BB. Looking at the points it quite different.Very happy for Aprilia becoming competitive as well. Can just make for more exciting racing ahead

Pedro Acosta has broken his femur in a training accident, that's a serious injury, scheduled for surgery.

I was just thinking, with the Yamaha winning each race by several seconds, would FQ have already started the last GP of the year while the others are still finishing the 2nd last one?😧

With current Yamaha management decision making, I wouldn't be surprised if they went and raced on the wrong track at the wrong time. 🤣🤣

Yamaha should just run the satilite team themselves next season, until it can be taken over by VR46, they already have an option on Binder and can bring Toprack in.

Indeed. I said earlier that it should be reasonably easy for Yamaha to run a satellite team next year. They will have the bikes. They have a contract option with DB40, which will be pretty cheap. There are many other solid riders available who are desperately looking for a seat and Leopard Racing did indicate they would like to run such a team for Yamaha, so bikes, riders, infrastructure and sponsorship largely sorted. I think, but this is a wild guess, that Yamaha did not go for the Leopard Racing idea because they have decided to wait out next year, to enable them and VR46 to come together in 2024.

I doubt that the would have brought Toprak in next year, even if they did have a team though. Toprak and his Manager Sofoglu know they have it made. Decent contract with Yamaha in WSBK, good chance of winning another championship and would in all probability not want him to ride for a small budget satellite team. They did indicate that in the past and I am pretty sure they haven't changed their minds. Also, Franco Morbidelli's contract expires end 2023, which will be the ideal time to bring Toprak into the factory team.

Perhaps, Yamaha will also remember the failed Ben Spies exercise from a few seasons back.

He is on the only European brand that I like.
I have to admit, I sort of like them all, but Aprilia is head and shoulders above the other two on my like-list. I am so chuffed that they will have 4 bikes on the grid next year.

Rumors hotting up, still a small chance for Darryn in that RNF team it seems.
Razlan apparently said they will not look at a Moto2 rider, so I think at this stage it's between Darren and Raul. The team love Darren so lets hope it's not just a small chance, but that he is in.

Janee! This silly season is giving me a headache. Obviously keen to see DB40 on a decent bike in MotoGP, but all the other rumours! Need a spreadsheet to keep track.

When all the dust settles, 2 riders will be without seats. One could be DB40 which will have me crying in someone's pretzels.

Who else in danger?

Alex Marquez?
Raul Fernandez?
Taka Nakagami?
Remy Gardner?
