Well what's happened to the posters? have you all deserted Moto GP? Three races and three different winners and all nail biting finishes for spots on the podium. On top of that some new faces to put the pressure on the seasoned riders and picking a winner is harder than last season and different factories threatening the top three. Don't tell me you started watching Formula 1.

Previously followed Moto GP for a long time on ITV4, along with many others. Think the problem was when it went to BT Sport. Didn't help that it became a procession for Marquez, winning it three years in a row, and five times in the last six years.

It does seem like a more open start to the season in Moto GP, unlike in World Superbikes, where I think Alvaro Bautista has won every race this season, and put Jonathan Rea firmly in the shade.

The BBC used to cover it and I used to watch it back on iplayer. Then the BBC stopped covering it and I stopped noticing it. I remember it used to be more exciting in terms of racing than Formula One.

Seen all three races thus far. Qatar was a fabulous race and essentially a repeat of the 2018 race between Dovi and Márquez.

Argentina was ruined by the dodgy penalty Crutchlow got for ‘supposedly’ a jump start. Crutchlow has been the only man to get near Márquez in Argentina these last couple of years.

Texas was another Márquez cakewalk until he fell off. Rather absurdly the Spaniard had won all previous 6 races at CoTA.

For the championship it was a vital result. This time last year Dovi’s hopes had already faded after multiple races with issues.

This years Honda seems considerably more loose to ride, whereas Ducati has improved in the corners but there’s still a clear weakness in the fast flowing corners.

Yamaha have improved their bike and Rossi’s performances at 40 years old are staggering.

Finally I’m really glad that Jack Miller and Cal Crutchlow have full works bikes.

Danilo Petrucci won the Italian GP on a factory Ducati to achieve his maiden win in MotoGP. Long overdue victory for the likeable Italian. Marquez second and Dovi third. Marquez leads Dovi by 12pts

Well six races and four different winners, you can't say Moto GP is boring. Even with a DNF Marquez is still leading the title race, but with young riders like Petrucci and Rins getting competitive bikes, picking a winner is getting harder. Congratulations to Danilo Petrucci on his first win, I'm sure there will be plenty more.
