    Rossi's last race on Italian soil.
    Everything else is frippery.
    Fobbie-0 will clinch the title.
    Rossi will be interviewed more than Fobbie-0.

    They all should pull over on the last lap for 46 out of sheer respect... He officially took The Boss Moniker away from Springsteen for next years efforts I guess. So who guesses there will be some yellow worn?

    Zarco for the win, because, well, we haven’t seen him do a backflip off the barriers in a loooooong time.

    I will go on record to say we will never see another Zarco back flip again. The talent pool in MotoGp is so deep, if he hasn't won by now, I don't see it happening. I bet Bastianini wins before Johan. I am not a hater, actually like the guy.

    And everyone is going to have to contend with a healed up MM, and a very talented Franco on the Factory bike (but maybe not till next year for Franky).

    No arguments from me. It’s always been a disappointment not seeing him win one in this league. You know, what made me really respect him, was when Luis Salom crashed, and in the press conference, he gave a reporter absolute hell, for asking a question, that was uncalled for. Zarco had so much sand in his belly and passion and vinegar I had to like him more. Rossi, was sitting right next to him I remember and gave him a cool, it’s ok man, i understand look. I might have the details a little screwy, but he was obviously bummed and sickened by his death. It was a powerful moment. Plus, he’s French, so the English cursing didn’t come out smoothly. :-)

    I'm looking forward to see if this is another Pecco/Marquez battle to the checkered flag or if Marc has made further physical improvement and wins with a comfortable lead. Pecco may be riding tight because of the championship and Marquez is on a high from winning in Texas.

    I would expect Fabio to ride like he did there last time, a comfortable pace that can get a podium without taking big risks.

    I'd love to see a repeat performance by Bastianini.
