Will have to wait for younger brother Alex to graduate to a Honda for MotoGP to be competitive. The others simply lack the pace or setup to challenge consistently as things stand now. Wish Stoner was around.

Though I am Rossi fan, it pains to see his results. (Like Vishy’s results in chess)

I wish that factory bike was given to Zarco.

Hopefully he can win races after the break (more than 2 years). If it was some other rider, press would have been up in arms. Marquez is on another level and looks like he is running away with the championship this time due to lack of consistency from others.

More than Zarco, I think if Quartararo gets promoted and gets the factory team seat, it would be much more interesting.

IMHO, riders can switch between Suzuki and Yamaha and adapt to them quickly, as they are corner speed bikes with in-line 4 engines. But the Honda and Ducati are way too different and riders who make this radical switch suffer the most.

As of now, only Petrucci has confirmed his seat for 2020 season with factory Ducati, and all other deals are still in the air - right?

No, most of the deals signed in 2018 were for 2 years. So there are not many changes in the next season. Now all the factory teams have confirmed seats for 2020.
  • Honda(Marquez/Lorenzo)
  • Yamaha(Vinales/Rossi)
  • Ducati(Dovizioso/Petrucci)
  • Suzuki(Rins/Mir)
  • Aprilia(AEspargaro/Iannone)
  • KTM(Zarco/PEspargaro)
Among Satellite teams only Petronas Yamaha have their riders confirmed for 2020, while 1 seat each is up for grabs in the remaining teams.
  • Petronas Yamaha(Morbidelli/Quartararo)
  • Tech3 KTM(Oliveira/Syahrin)
  • LCR Honda(Crutchlow/Nakagami)
  • Pramac Ducati(Bagnaia/Miller)
  • Avintia Racing(Abraham/Rabat)

Here too only doubtful is Tech3 KTM seat of Syahri, others are expected to retain their seats for next season. There are rumors about former Moto2 champion Brad Binder taking up the second Tech3 seat.

Whoa, interesting. I was somehow under the impression that the deals get over by the end of this season and that we will start seeing lot of changes this year. Thanks for the updates!

And yes, Syahrin is really struggling to get a hang of that KTM machine just like Zarco is. So it makes sense to try their hand with some new rider. And so, no chance for Alex Marquez to get promoted before 2021 now. He is showing a really strong form in Moto 2 at the moment and might even clinch the championship this year, much like his elder brother.

Just saw the news that Brad Binder has been signed up by KTM Tech 3 team for the Premier class championship. So yes, Syahrin would have already realized that his run in Moto GP has come to an end already. I guess he will have to go back to Moto-2 now, or try WSBK like Bautista had to.

What a ride by Marc ! When almost everyone was on wets, half way through session Marc pitted for slicks. Struggled through first run, and belted next two for pole.
Miller was only other rider on slicks, will start second.
First front row start for KTM, Zarco was fastest on wets.

Again just no competition from the rest, easy victory for 93.

Initially thought the Ducati's would give a fight, enough said.

Alberto puig coming on and asking Marquez to push on just after he had a scare, just shows the amount of confidence that HRC have on him.

Just shows that they dont care about crashes now as they have a good enough buffer in the championship. HRC is handling the situation pretty well, they could have taken the no risk approach and still win the championship. But as they say best form of (championship) defence is to attack. Nobody is really giving him any fight, this championship is as good as over.

With this sort of dominance in the Championship with no one literally being able to even challenge Marquez for a last lap battle, this year's Championship is more like a boring movie whose story you can clearly predict right before the interval scene came up. We all know the climax now, but we will just have to sit and watch the rest of the movie without too much of an excitement.

Ducati seemed strong and had a horsepower advantage over Honda till last year, but now that gap has diminished a lot and Dovi seems to have resigned to the fact that noting can be done to challenge the other-worldly talented Marquez.

There was a strong rumor about Lorenzo moving back to Ducati with Pramac next year, after Jack Miller revealed that his contract signing with Pramac Ducati is delayed due to this.
If it actually happens, this might shake up the line up again with some interesting rider movements.

It would've been really interesting had Lorenzo stayed with Ducati this year. If not beat Marquez, he could've dented his championship run somewhat, unlike the rest of the field who have almost given up on the chase. Lorenzo moving to Pramac Ducati might not help him win races, methinks.

That Honda under Marquez seems to be made from Vibranium and is so lethal that even Ducati is finding hard to chase him down on the straights! Save for a bad crash or a serious injury, Marquez already has one hand on the championship now.

As for the Yamahas, they seem to be digging their own grave. If they want to be competitive next year, they better change their riders or get some serious power and top speed to stay with the Hondas and Ducatis. If they continue the 2019 form onto 2020, forget Honda or Ducati, I'm predicting Suzuki will beat them comprehensively!

Hi All..

Many of us had this issue with Sony Liv app that.. now the live broadcast of the races are under paid subscription.

Well, I'm able to watch live streaming of MotoGP race in Live TV section of the Airtel app without any additional packs/recharges other than my regular quarterly mobile recharge.

I'm a prepaid user of Airtel mobile services and recharge for 90 days prepaid pack generally. I also have an Airtel DTH connection, albeit which is inactive since 2 months.

Other airtel users may please try it and post their comment on this for the benefit of other members.

Marquez is now the all time leader, with scoring his 59th pole at Red Bull ring.

What an amazing finish to the Austrian GP! The last 2 laps were fantastic. Dovi manages to outfox Marc yet again in the last corner scrapes to win the race. Fabio also rode a brilliant race to grab the last step on the podium, is showing promises of a future star.

The GOAT manages to scalp 4th.

Marc still has a comfortable lead in the championship.
