As for the wet discussion, well he has won races in the wet (Michelins) so that should dispell that theory but near all happily (begrudgingly) admit that changeable conditions are a different matter altogether.
Do you recall the last wet race Lorenzo won?

From the top of the head, I do recall a soaking Silverstone that he won as it is used as a bench mark and often mentioned here but he also won at Aragon around 2014/2015 (haven't checked) and a few others.

But, one needs to weight up the number won versus the number of wet races in which he competed and with brutal honesty, I have not seen any statistic along those lines as the declarations of what constitutes wet has changed over the years (given that wet is the classification that appears on the results sheet, not what you, I or the rock refer to as wet)

Bendsnyder finishes but gets dq'ed - https://streamable.com/lo1sg
Why the DQ? Not crossing the finish line with bike? Does he need to go back on track and touch the motorcycle to cement his finishing position? Or related to the collision itself?

Apparantly you have to be in contact with the bike as you go over the finish line. Hence those that fell off, got up and pushed it over (in previous races) got their place but this poor sod just got a quirky finish photo.

Maverick cracking under pressure and Rossi showing again why he is the best. If he will continue on like this; he will get that title.

Great race to watch. Seems Zarco was banking on it raining with his initial tire selection. Then bolting to wets as soon as there were drops of rain. I wonder if he had started on mediums whether he would have stayed in the hunt, I think he would have.

Kudos to vr, he has always been good in these conditions. Sucked for Petrux, wtf with Rins?? Full on RD rossi bias bs.

I had to shut it off right after the flag so I didn't have to listen to all the bs. In fact, next race I might just keep the sound off so I don't have to listen to Harris, jeez what a windbag.

Put Rossi on proper racing circuits and he'll shit himself, that's the difference between him and the likes of Ago and Hailwood, they won everywhere.

So, given Rossi has won at nearly every circuit at one time or another, can we assume there are some alternative circuits where Rossi would be incapable of being competitive? Some circuits he's never been on? Which "proper" circuits pray tell, would they be?
