    I can't bring myself to say his name.
    As much as I think he means well, his ego and attitude spoil it for me.
    Should be interesting how the team plays out this year.
    It's going to be majical or a complete disaster.

    Have to feel sorry for KTM With Pol out for at least the next test. Pretty sure they have gotten everything out of Smith that's of value. Kalio looks to be their only fully committed rider, hope he can find another gear.

    AP..” so Marc.... I remember this one time... I was heading into turn one at Valencia a little faster than anytime before... “remember the 2 strokes ? Very difficult to ride fast... so there I was .. T1 going in too fast but I managed to slide a little bit the front tyre to scrub the speed... and then...

    No caption, and maybe it's just the photo, but it seems like they are both "looking past" each other...maybe that says it all...

    You really gotta wonder why Honda wanted Puig back. He can't add anything of value to the team. The riders are excellent, the bike is good, the team knows how to strategize for all weather conditions and set the bikes up to Dani and Marc's wishes, and how many WC's has Marc won again?

    People change their attitudes and ambitions.
    We have no idea how these last few years looking after the Asia Talent series has affected Puig and his mentality, and I think it's a little early to be judge and jury.
    Time will tell.

    Honda's a large corporation. After a lifetime of working in large corporations, ..... what's ability got to do with anything!

    All you have to do is be 'adequate', spend most of your time and energy sucking up to the big kahunas, blow your own trumpet and take full credit when things are going well, and blame your incompetent staff when its not.

    I think they will have a "very" good rider for next year. Lot's of seat changes coming.

    I really do think 2018 has significant potential to be a JLo - MM duel.

    Can't wait for the season to start!

    That was the thinking that led them to pay 24M euros.

    It would be amusing to calculate the Lorenzo tax every Ducati owner has to pay on their bike.
