Yeah and still can't turn. Dovi plus JLo still complaining same problem. It's not about actually turning, it's about more corner speed, albeit small, but a detail that can put Ducati to fight for a win at every weekend.

Even riders are not ignoring this fact, don't know why you are doing it. Also, I don't believe Ducati is just ignoring it. I'm sure they are working on a new engine, but rules prevents them bringing it right now. It's just Dovi that is too anxious. Rest assured next year Ducati will appear with a more compact engine and a chassis capable of an insane range of adjustments, virtually making Desmosedici the most dynamic bike on the grid. The point is, the bike will be even more complex, but once they learn it, it will be really hard for competitors (words from Tardozzi).

About Jumkie's comment, I don't disagree completely. Jumkie is fucking crazy but it's plain obvious that Dorna is rooting like mad for Rossi. Who knows what's going on behind the scenes?

And, yes, I'd let Rossi win this shit 10th title as soon as possible, and the game will start to be more fair.

Wills, you return with the grace of a stuttering turboprop engine, spluttering into life on a frosty Sunday morning.

Mav crashes in front of Dovi



Mav thanks Dovi via social media for taking the evasive action (IMO, a good class act) - https://www.instagram.com/p/BVxolToBLOc/?hl=en

What a great race. Lots of uncertainty with the changing conditions and closely grouped riders kept things interesting the whole time. I got to hand it to Rossi, he rode a great race but having said that I can't help but feel for Petrucci. Despite starting the final lap with a small gap to Rossi it looked like his 4th sector strengths were going to enable him to attempt a pass into the final chicane. <RANT> What the fuck are the Assen marshalls smoking? I honesty couldn't believe it when I saw Rins on the racing line causing Petrucci to hesitate and lose time, only to see the time difference after the race as Petrucci +0.0. Can you imagine what sort of conspiracy shit Uccio would have started spewing if the roles were reversed?<END RANT> Congrats to Marc and Cal, they kept it upright home for some valuable points.

It was a pretty much a dry race with the threat of rain and a few sprinkles, yet he stayed near the back. First step is admitting you have a problem, now he can finally take steps to address it. Not sure why the "experts" here have been determined to argue that Lorenzo doesn't have issues in the wet... especially at Assen (Bridgestones or Michelin... it doesn't matter).

Blue flags (generally speaking) can only be displayed at the behest of Race Direction

The only flags that a flaggie can generally issue without Race Direction approval are the Yellow flags and the 'debris' flag (better known as oil flag). Generally, all other flags require RD notice to display, so this issue may not have been the marshall's so much as RD not being on the ball (which is concerning in it's own)

As he says, he admits he has issues with Assen (what he does not say of course is the starting point) so in many ways, he is somewhat behind the eight ball before he starts.

As for the wet discussion, well he has won races in the wet (Bridgestones) so that should dispell that theory but near all happily (begrudgingly) admit that changeable conditions are a different matter altogether.


Edit - changed Michelins to Bridgestone - my typo bad
