Dovi won a remarkable race, Marquez put an amazing (although risky) last corner effort to win, Pedrosa did a great job coming back into the fight, Lorenzo had a pretty decent weekend, and yet all you can talk about is how underwhelming Rossi's race was...
Thanks from youngR

A round of applause goes to Bautista, Baz and Kallio too. What a great race those three put on.
Thanks from Phl

The one good thing Dear George did was get out in front of the 93 and keep him from disappearing. Hats off to Dovi, that was a perfect workman like effort, saving his tyres, riding within himself, and beating the Traitor Puta at the end.
Thanks from youngR and Twistedracer

Bravo to Dovi, well done.

Still amazed that Marquez didn't crash in the last corner, he actually pivoted the bike around without even exceeding track limits, unbelievable! Watch the replay, some of the stuff he does is pure magic.

Pure magic or pure luck? No doubt he's a very talented alien but does risk a lot and could put others at risk by some of his moves which is not so good. Great entertainment and fun to watch tho. Great race and hats off to Dovi for holding MM off.

that move would have worked if (hate saying if) the tire griped right away and didnt have that wiggle. truth is MM made 3 mistakes towards the end of the race that put dovi ahead where if it didnt happen MM wouldnt have to do that move.
in any event ducati should have walked away with this win and didnt. MM will win number 6 this year and you guys can tell me rossi is back after his second place at qatar.

if rossi wasnt stealing a seat from someone better than i wouldnt say a word. he could do the same thing on tech 3 that he is doing on the factory ride. pretty sad that yamaha didnt have the cahones to actually let a first time yamaha rider win the championship because it would make the has been look bad.

maverick was basically untouchable till COTA thats when the tires changed and suddenly the chasis doesnt work for him either. tech 3 is running last years bike and beat out the factory. things that make you go hmmmm
