Never say never this season its so eventfulSuperb ride from Morbidelli that puts him right back in the title hunt, really good job from Mir to get it on the podium considering he qualified 12th.
Bad day for Vinales and Quartararo and a disaster for Dovi finishing 13th having looked good for a top 6 finish at one point. Surely that's his title aspirations realistically done now?

Think it would be the first time a title has been won without a race been won. If that happens..Probably needs at least one of the Valencia races to be wet as they're nowhere in the dry at the minute.
Suspect that there will be plenty more twists and turns but on current form it's Mir's title to lose in the last 3 races. Out of the last 7 dry races he's been on the podium for 6 of them, and the odd one out is Austria 2 where he looked well on for the win before the red flag.
Rossi could still get a positive test though. And I would hope Marquez stays away for the rest of this season. Be nice to see how this crazy season pans out without the distraction of him back on the track.No Rossi this weekend:
