Exclamation Moto GP Test - Phillip Island

On a fast track the fast go fast....No surprise at the top.
Who said Suzuki bikes don't make power?

The surprise is just outside the top 10 !!!!! Poor boy, his engineers said they are still working on seat/handlebar/footpeg position to help him get comfortable.....WHAT? he had all Sepang to figure that out, didn't he?

Iannone sure as hell feels comfy on the suzuki. He looks strong.

My prediction is that Maverick will win the championship this year. Good kid.

Ha. As expected. Jorge is the opposite of Casey Stoner, he is the least adaptive rider in history even the easy riding Yamaha wasn't perfect enough for him at times.

I don't see Jorge even making a Podium finish in a race where a top rider doesn't either crash out or have mechanical issues.

You heard it hear first, Jorge isn't going to make a podium unless better riders crash or their bike fail.

So he goes third fastest in testing and that is going to make him champion? That is a stretch.

In valencia test he was quickest in first session and second session 2nd I believe, and Sepang also quickest. And 2nd test in phillip Island he is quickest aswell.

So yeah thats my reason why.

He will finish 3rd at best behind Marquez and Rossi. No 4th at best behind Vinales

Yah, that is pretty much how I have the season going too.

Marc is my favorite to win again.

Rossi second, but if marc slips up or honda has some trouble he will win.

Maverick has the talent and speed to win it all, but I think he is too inconsistent still and will need a year more before he is ready to win it all.

Iannone will be a thorn in Jorge's side all year long.

I think Jorge is a waste of money/time. He's only good on certain tracks and only good when gets out front. That's when his metronome consistency works for him. Any slight disruption of his..."mojo" and he falls to piece i.e. if it rains, there's too many right hand corners, he gets out of bed on the wrong side

2-3-4 years ago boring seasons. Last year was pretty excited. Lots of overtakes and I loved the wet weather races.
Hope 2017 will be as good, or even better. motoGP is back.
