    Can Ducati keep this winning streak up at the protractor circuit?
    Can the Mart1nator repeat?

    I mean, I'm glad racing is back, but man I hate this track with a passion.

    Only thing it does well is early red-flags, and I'd rather not twist that lion's tail more than needed.

    Just get this weekend over with and back to some real circuits.....

    I'll take Nakami's first podium for $300 Alex.

    Fabio will break the streak but honestly just hoping our boys in Moto 2 get it together

    The biggest thing they need to do is fix T2. Maybe if they added in a section like Craner(sp?)curves or a Spa bus stop section. That section is just asking for it, in all classes as it leads to high relative speeds into T3. If they did something to create an overtaking spot for T2, they could then round T3 off so if you did low side coming out, you’re not in the middle of the damn track. Just about every time someone goes down coming out of 3, them and their bike ends up on the racing line.

    It's sad to see a once great rider reduced to just a punchline.

    I was just telling someone yesterday, I remember when if Rossi finished 4th it was a disaster and the media would be all over him "what went wrong?!?" Now it's tough to see a Yamaha kicking ass and leading the points yet GOAT Rossi's Yamaha riding around in 16th place.

    It's the inescapable passing of time, the duality of man, don't whizz on the electric fence, etc. Makes a man feel old.

    In 5 years, maybe less. No one will remember Rossi that “hung on too long”. They’ll remember one of the greats. That’s how it goes.

    I don't see it as a punchline. I really hope he gets lucky, the stars align, a bunch of people DNF and he squeaks his way into one last podium. I believe it is possible. Not probable, but as long as he grids up, he has a chance. Remember Dumb and Dumber.

    This track is badass. They can’t all be tight little circuits. At some point bikes like to get into 5-6gear.

    it's one of my favorite/fastest tracks in Gran Turismo, so therefore it is a great track to me :D

    I think Fabio will win a dry race if he can get out front and get into a rhythm. I wanna see who Marc berms this week.

    If he makes it to Q2, then I’d agree. His QP is worse than Suzuki.

    88/532 Simply Antagonistical

    Not much will change in a week, Ducati will win. Probably Martin once again. He seems to have a solid hold of the track. Wouldn’t mind seeing Zarco win it though.
