ROUND 8 OF RATING THE RIDERS: 2019 DUTCH GP

MV12 – 9: There’s no denying Maverick’s talent but we’ve kind of been waiting for a while for that! Good on him to prove us wrong but this result as fantastic as it is will have to be repeated in the next few rounds for Yamaha to be kind of out of their crisis.

VR46 – 3: You know, even for non Rossi fanatics, seeing this legend struggling so much just HURTS. We’re sure he still has it in him but maybe that just bot worth waiting for it anymore… 🤷🏻‍♀️

AR42- 6: That early crash was so unfortunate Alex! Clearly had my money on him. Clearly lost a bit of $$… 😩

MM93 – 8: Even on days where, from his own words, everything wasn’t ready for him to be able to win, he still gets 2nd. This, my dear friends, is why he is untouchable.

AD04 – 6: Years and seasons goes by and Dovizioso is still lacking that extra something World Champs have.

FQ20 – 8: Another impressive weekend for the rookie who’s giving us major Zarco throwbacks. Hopefully it will all end up better for him than his fellow frenchman.

DP9 – 6: Beware Danillo, do not close too much on Dovi or else you’ll be asked to drop a place… 👀

JL99 – DNS: Mother luck has totally left the Lorenzo boat. Hopefully she will make a comeback soon enough or at least before he breaks himself a few more vertebrae…

ROUND 7 OF RATING THE RIDERS: 2019 CATALAN GP

MM93 – 10: For that race only, Jorge has been added to the thanks list at the end of Marc’s title winning speech.

MV12 – 3: His anger & frustration were obvious but come on Mack, the middle finger is too much of a low point for you to do it. You’re better than that.

FQ20 – 9: Pole on Saturday, Podium on Sunday. The new Zarco is on fire.

DP9 – 8: It’s amazing how winning a race changes a man. Petrucci seems on a roll since his Italian GP win and could become one of the many key factor into this season’s title chase.

JL99 – 3: Sometimes, Sh*t happens. But kuddos to Jorge for taking the blame, apologizing and having made a step forward on the bike this weekend!

AR42 – 7: Not as present as during the first few races but still scoring important points.

AD04 – 4: I have seen a lot of “JL destroyed Dovizioso’s title chances with this crash” but let’s be honest here, there’s many races still to go. Like Nicky Hayden would say, anything can happen, that’s why they line up on Sunday.

VR46 – 4: Sometimes being the veteran makes you speak the truth. No animosity coming from Vale regarding Jorge’s bowling party was the highlight of my Sunday. Some of his so called fans asking for JL’s head on a pick in front of Tavullia tho, not so much.

ROUND 6 OF RATING THE RIDERS: 2019 ITALIAN GP

DP9 – 10: There’s no such things as Mapping8 when a race win is at play. Even less so when looking to extend your current factory deal.. 👀 Congrats Danilo!!

VR46 – 3: We’ll honest there, we’ve barely saw Valentino this weekend which is a shame because that special Italian flag helmet was a beauty!

MM93 – 8: Sometimes the best you can do is 2nd.

AR42 – 7: There’s no stopping Alex as of right now. He’s been lurking behind the top 3 men for the whole race hoping for some kind of a bloodbath. Didn’t worked out this time but who knows about next time ?!

JZ5 – 1: We’re entering into the danger zone right now and one can wander is that marriage will last long enough to get a honeymoon.

AD04 – 7: Danilo might have been « Sorry! » in the post-race press conf for winning instead of his teammate but WE’RE NOT.

JL99 – 3: One can only hope that flight straight to HRC’s HQ in Japan will not be a total waist of time. At least, the boy is trying!

FQ20 – 5: Look we adore Fabio. He’s a huge potential for the future. But the French press really need to stop going crazy from Friday to Sunday about him like he was alone on the grid.

MV12 – 5: To think the M1 used to win races at the Mugello, and now this…

ROUND 5 OF RATING THE RIDERS: 2019 FRENCH GP

ROUND 5 OF RATING THE RIDERS: 2019 FRENCH GP

MM93 – 10: Dude makes it looks like it’s easy. How rude!

VR46 – 6: Not a win, not even a podium, but still better than another Yamaha rider.. 👀

MV12 – 3: When you think he finally made a step forward, here he goes making two steps back again.. #facepalm

AD04 – 7: I’m calling it now, if Dovi doesn’t wins at either Catalunya or Mugello, this might be one really long season for Ducati…

FQ20 – 8: I do hope Yamaha is securing this guy’s deal better than what they did with Zarco… Because WOW.

DP9 – 8: Danilo was clearly not out to make a Iannone on Dovi during that race ! Gigi can breath again!

JL99 – 4: And here i am, thinking of what this season could look like had Jorge & Ducati agreed to stay together…

JM43 – 8: Is Jack chasing Danilo’s seat in the factory team ? From the outside it kind of looks like so.. 👀

JM36 – 3: Crashing is ok as long as riders get away without injuries but come on, Joan, at least try not to do it BEFORE the race start!
