Exactly. Not sure if I agree with that kind of thinking, but that's how it is.

I predicted that both he and Vinales were going to end up being no shows this year. But it’s Lorenzo. I still think he has a chance because while clearly the most punchable rider out there, he is ridiculously talented. If he doesn’t perform better next season I’d be surprised.

Also, I think I’d take back that prediction entirely if I wasn’t stubborn.

What the fuck. He dropped back down to moto 2 and didn't even finish the season leaving in 20th place?

Maybe they're hoping Folger will change his mind and return mid season

I’m not sure what he’s on about.

Is is annoyed an unqualified American isn’t being offered the job?

Is he annoyed that Dorna is a business making a business decision?

I’d love to see an American in motogp but right now is anyone available that’s competitive cause if I’m filling that seat it’s with either a promising young talent that might be able to fill the roll regardless of country of origin and let’s be honest that riders probably not American. Or I’m looking for a vet that has shown they can atleast competently ride a gp level bike and can get some buts in the seats so I can get some money back on them till my talent returns. Dorna choose option two.

And why shouldn’t they. It’s a business and at the end of the day businesses need to make money or they cease their be a business. It’s not like any of us really gave a shit what scrub they replace him with anyways.
