I Ride: Yamaha and Ducati
This looks like the Jerez problem resurfacing for Yamaha, but this time it seems to affect the 2016 model as well. NO YAMAHA IN THE TOP TEN.

To be totally fair as well, this was their first run on new/old/new piece of track so perhaps that has played a part (would need to see section splits) and whilst yes, it was the same for all (except Jack ) it may be worth considering.

Just takin' the piss mate. I couldn't resist. No need to get all hurtful by comparing me to Knockwurst.

Poor Karl. I can only assume it was because he had zero pace and was coming into the pits, while Petrucci is now a Prima Donna because he has two podiums in MotoGP.

Regarding the Pedrosa comment last week that seemed to rile so many, he really meant and you can tell - although only a point was at stake, he was still pissed this weekend. I agree with Hodgson, Cal Crutchlow rides for Cal Crutchlow, why shouldn't he be pleased that a shite move from Dani cost him second in the championship? Is there any other rider that wouldn't internally be thinking that? - it's just that being Crutchlow, unlike some other riders that spring to mind in the paddock, instead of internalising it, he'll get it out...Foggy was equally forthright and in a the world of insincerity that we now live in, (and particularly in the context of this paddock), such candour and undisguised plainspokenness is something that I find that quite refreshing.

Like Stoner, Crutchlow doesn't care who he upsets. If it needs to be said - you can count on him to say it. The problem arises when something doesn't need to be said...and that's why his feeble diplomacy dike should be reinforced not breached.
I don't think we'll ever agree fully on Crutchlow.

Rossi seems to have adapted to the low grip issues in FP4. Vinales has not made any inroads sitting back in P15.

We will know shortly if Vinales can find something extra for qualifying or not.

Folger and Vinales two top riders in Q1.

Rossi and Zarco 13th and 14th on the grid respectively.

Bopper logic 101
Speaking your mind is only a positive character trait if you beat Rossi, otherwise your a whiny POS.
