Who says there is anything wrong with the 2017 Ducati on Michelins? Oh yeah, the spanish princess whose talent only works within a very small margin of the conditions (ie on a yamaha on bridgestones on a sunny sunday when no one else is allowed to race him)....
I use to call JLo the "Church Lady" from Dana Carvey's character. While bumping and shoving, he then moaned about others. Same goes for Rossi, he moans about others while being "too" aggressive. I never called him the "Church Lady", though. Maybe the "Evil Choir Boy", but not the "Church Lady".

P.S. People on this forum have said Ducati has problems and needs a new engine because the bike can't turn. You could see that all over the place, today. ;-P

Any result from the moment the CEO acted as Rossi's sport agent in the closed kingdom of Dorna took out any legitimacy of future results, but let's shelf that? Why exactly? It's MotoWWF every race, where the game is: beat Rossi against every possible advantage. It's really amazing Rossi doesn’t win every race.

Look again at the coverage, look closely to the screen messages, the audio, the glamour camera shots. The entire thing is telling you one thing. And it's only become increasingly sophisticated over the last 10-15 years. Why would this race or last race be any different?

Rossi's participation in this pseudo contest is artificial. It's contrived for the consumption of those not aware or caring about how results are manufactured. This is the sport that petitioned to nullify rules in favor of Rossi to put him in the similar situation now, that a slight attrition would propel him as a title winner.

When we see Rossi being competitive, does the thought cross people's mind (the few that are aware of it) what might tires (and every tangible and intangible advantage) designed for him do to make him competitive against a field that must acquiesce? Or are we just caught up in the moment, look, it's so exciting, it's like a motorcycle foot race?

It's a bullshit contest folks, because the organizers have made it a game of Rossi+advantages vs everybody. Today it cheated Petrux from going into the record books as a GP winner. Today it cheated Viñalez from retaining the points lead. Today it artificially put Rossi into the records as a race winner. It's a manipulate record.
I just about turned it off when Rossi took the lead, it started raining, and Nick Harris exclaimed, " oh no, not now "
Its pathetic. How many more years do we have another flag incident, involving Rossi that goes ignored, or benefits him

Don't be so sour Jums. Things don't always go as we wish. Got to accept it. The world goes on, the sun will rise tomorrow and the little birds will chirp on the boughs...

Not waving a blue flag had a greater chance of hurting Rossi in the lead than Petrucci in 2nd. Rossi luckily caught up with Rins in a spot where he could overtake without being held up. Even without a blue flag, as soon as he was passed by Rossi, Rins should've looked over his shoulder for 2nd and 3rd place riders so he could move out the way. Oh well, what's done is done.

Cmon guys... if the blue flags were UP then probably you will say that Uccio cursed all other riders, or Rossi's bike is with "TURBO" ...

Great win and great race, shame for Maverick but the title showdown is getting intense.

It does not indicate that they must pull off the racing line as that will create a greater danger

It is intended to alert the rider that they are about to be passed

Rossi and Zarco get up close and personal - https://streamable.com/wvytr

I cannot believe that Rossi stole some of Zarco's front tyre here - I mean, thieving mongrel
