    Sounds like Yonny Hernandez is going to be testing for Tech 3 at Sepang. I don't think he'll get the permanent ride but I guess his input will be useful for testing. I like Yonny, maybe he'll land a seat.

    I recently saw a photo of him in a hospital gown with his arm in a sling. I think he'll be out of action for the next while.

    JOhnny Hernandez is the top pick currently, and is doing the Sepang test. Herve has said he also has a few other riders he is looking at.

    Yeah, someone on a motorcycle will win.

    Seriously, Ducati is strong and Dovi has the wins from last year to bank on and then there's Marquez.

    I'm going to peg Zarco for the win!

    Already an interesting season with Tech 3 switching to KTM next year to run factory bikes for 3 years. Zarco on fire, Honda in the right place for the start of the season, Dovi is happy, Jorge is happier than this time last year, Petrucci is strong along with Crutchlow. Miller and Rins are right in the mix too. The only problem is Yamaha factory team have done a Honda and not listened to their riders and produced a bike the riders can't get along with. And Iannone has lifted his game too.

    So you have the standard line up of potential winners

    Marquez & Dani on the Honda
    Dovi and Jorge on the Ducati
    the Yamaha boys (Vale & Maverick) can turn it on when they get the right track.

    And with those 6 riders you also have proven winners

    Cal, Iannone and Jack (all looking stronger and happier this year than last)

    Then the potential winners who I expect to get there this year

    Petrucci, Zarco and Rins

    that brings the potential winners this season to 12!!!

    I am really looking forward to this season!!!
