New thread for new season as 2019 testing has started!

Yamaha tests on first new engine went well with Vinales and Rossi in #1 & #3 respectively.

Testing second new engine today

Who you got for this season? My money's on Rossi as usual but given his form in last 3 races I think that's achievable

I think Yamaha will throw a lot of money into development and testing this season, as they were left a bit humiliated in 2018 by not listening to their riders.
46 is a good call and should have the bit between his teeth after 2018.

Er, I hate to pop your wee bubble but that has been the pattern for the past 3 seasons’ tests in Qatar and Valencia.

Would like to see Yamaha sort themselves out though. A 123 point gap is an embarrassment.

When you’ve just upgraded your stock master cylinder to a Brembo 19RCS and you take the bike out for a test ride:
The inside of those leathers must have had a smidge of brown after that!

It won’t take a G out of Marquez but as history has shown when Lorenzo’s confidence has been knocked it takes a while for him to recover... he’ll probably finish on the podium now that I’ve said that :laughing:

I'd like to see Jorge race, hopefully his walk to the med centre is precaution.. Leathers off though so he's binned FP3

Brilliant result for a knocked about Cal, I hope the Suzukis can be competitive throughout the season now and a good result for Rossi, considering qualifying and beating Vinales to the stripe.

Is MotoGP anywhere on freeview this year? There was a highlight show in the week last year but can't find anything now.
