Reckon he's just about done is the old man. But what a career.....
I think you're about right. He's hardly a tailender now but to have two races with very lowly qualifying positions (14th and 18th) that has seen him crash out of the race is a bad sign, especially with other Yamahas on the podium. Fortunately for Yamaha, they have a pretty handy replacement waiting in the wings.

They made some morning setting changes and he had good pace, tried use that pace to get through the pack but got a bit over-eager and lost the front taking Taka Naka down with him.

Haha, nah. He gets to the end of the year at least. A send off year for his legion of fans. He'll still likely get some good results.

I wouldn't want him to retire right now. I hope he sticks around a little longer so I get to see him race even if he doesn't win any more races.
Would have been nice if he'd finished the race yesterday as I've been extra sad this weekend cause my cat passed away.
At least I got an extra month with her, since I told you guys she was dying. 😔

Crutchlow is riding with a cracked Tibia this weekend and possibly a damaged ACL. He had an incident on his pushbike whereby he slipped and fell over on a cobblestone path in his riding shoes when he dismounted to check his seat.

They are the walking wounded in MotoGP. As well as Crutchlow's leg injury, Quartararo had a big headshake through Waldmann corner (the old Waterfall) and had a partial dislocation of his shoulder.
Aleix Espargaro is still recovering from a significant leg injury sustained in Catalunya when Bradley Smith played torpedo.
But worst of all is Taka Naka. They mentioned his team looked concerned and a doctor in his put box. I wondered what they were talking about as he climbed the standings as far as third fastest in FP4. Then he came back into the pits and had to get onto crutches to hobble inside. Tough as old boot leather.
