2019 banter & Silly season thread for MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3

To get things going, Sachsenring confirmed for 2019, and "it will remain the home of the German GP". But no word on how long any contract is written.

Ponsson 7 & 5 seconds off the pace in FP1/FP2. Maybe he'll improve to 4 secs off tomorrow? I bet Jeremy McWilliams would be faster than that!

Is that really that bad though? I get the points that Rossi and Marquez are complaining about, yet they are also irrelevant. Field spread used to be much larger that 5 seconds a lap. Unless he's being a danger to other riders, give him a break and let him have his chance.

Well, with his latest DUI, he’s on a personal kamikaze mission. I hope he sorts himself out. He seems like a ticking bomb. I hope he receives the help he clearly needs.

Ducati launch new 2019 Mission Winnow livery.

No dramatic changes really, although the colours are more red with minimal white being the change. Other than the bikes now featuring the Phillip Morris Mission Winnow initiative, as with Ferrari in F1 last year.

As such, the team’s official name is now ‘Mission Winnow Ducati Team’. It also sports signage from parent company Audi.
