It is buddy, but it's been that way for a few years. They have a Marquez though to negate some of their handling woes.
Yamaha don't, Rossi doesn't seem that man and Maverick hasn't had enough time on the bike to know what he's actually feeling for (if you get my drift).
The unusual weather changes have actually caught many new (to different bikes and teams) on the hop, as they're just not getting the consistency of seat time to enable them to gel with their bikes.
This has played mightily into Dovi's and Petrux's hands, giving them podiums they might not normally get.

Not even 1 sec. between the first 10 in FP3.
Aleix only 0.5 sec. off the pace and 7. fastest
and Jorge 0.6 sec. behind Marc in 1.
...

It's gonna be good...

JoLo looks to me like Darthvader riding around on a red star fighter trying to find ludicrous speed.

Marc has been on ice all weekend. He really will be lucky to finish tomorrow. But it looks like rain.

Nah he's not got the balls needed to have to cool his groin.

BTW they are wings no if and or buts, take a look at the A10 Warthog, Read somewhere the slots in the wings were for stability when close to the ground, it was IMO better looking as well.

Marquez can probably expect the infamous Michelin email after mentioning having a shit front tyre in the post qualifying interview.

No such thing. Spirit of the fucking rules...
Write the book correctly and there's no need to worry. Just ensure you know the difference between a comma and a semi-colon.
