The track doesn't look very safe to me..cracks in the surface of a world level racetrack is unacceptable.

Going to be carnage on the first corner in each race, especially the 3's. Jack Miller for a win.

Apparently in the past it's been closed during December & January so they can fix cracks & whatnot.... I guess it's normal wear & tear on something like that??
Anyway, we're getting towards the end of the year now so I suppose it's about due for it's annual sprucing up??

the problem is they took a flat piece of ground and contoured it to fit the designed circuit the ground under the circuit has not settled into its final position and from what I know of geology it could take decades to stop shifting .

Bagnaia said yesterday in an interview that if the prioblems are not fixed for next season, then the riders have agreed they will refuse to race on safety grounds.

Fabio will have a tougher job winning the championship next year. Marquez is on his way back.
