This is what I was getting at, Jack..

Number of bikes in the Top 5 race finishing positions. Ducati clearly have more top 5 finishes and never not had a bike in the Top 5 unlike Yam, Honda and Suzuki.

Honda are the only manufacture of those 4 to never have 3 bikes finish in the Top 5.

perspective , honda's number 2 rider has been injured and/or out all year , their satellite team is average at best ,Cal will usually end in the gravel and Nakagami is only there for a Japanese presence on the grid . I do see your point but I don't agree with the conclusion

MotoGP badly needs to find a competitive British rider. We have been watching the French TV coverage the last few days and the focus is all in Quartararo and Zarco.

I don’t think it’s very competitive in the scheme of things.

It doesn’t look close to a podium. Aprilia is even worse.
