Yeh admit this looks like it's never gonna happen but can't help wondering what if ...

If Jonathan Rea was offered a ride at Yamaha, Honda, or Ducati for next season and he decided what the heck I'm going for it - where do you think he'd actually finish?

Because I think he'd be very, very close to the top if not number 1. I reckon at the moment he'd probably finish runner up to Marquez, but only just and because basically everyone finishes runner up to Marquez eventually the guy's a machine at the moment

Going by how good Rea looked

Going by how good Rea looked at Jerez hard to argue he wouldn't be near the top, probs finish third or fourth? Maybe even second, but yeh no chance he'd be overtaking Marquez at the moment

I think potentially he could

I think potentially he could be top 6.  Bear in mind I'm a massive Jonny Rea fan, but equally I'm aware that the GP aliens are in some other league above and beyond.

@PeterC466 I never heard anyone say they thought Toseland was all of that, but I will agree about Spies - shame to have had so much bad luck in 1 career, now we'll never know.

Zarco and Rea, the 2018 T3

Zarco and Rea, the 2018 T3 MotoGP effort.  Flashes of Zarco 2017 but better.
