Fantastic race, the podium battle was among the best I've seen even though Marquez walked away at the end. Shocker for Ducati , none of them in the top ten.
Gladly no-one complained about the fairing bashing, loved Rossi's comment about being more stupid than the others

Ducati was and remains the third best manufacturer. The parity picture has never changed. Like I said, Dovi has been the difference on a pig.

Marquez is a great rider, but if he were on a Ducati he'd be in Dovi's wake. Kudos to Dovi, nobody on the current grid would have done a better job on an inferior Ducati, not even Marc, he has done a great job against the perennial Japanese dominance.

Well I fell asleep. Watching a recording now It is like watching old folk jostling their wheelchairs to get to dinner first.

Marquez ..... slow as, until the last few laps. Took a leaf out of Stoners book here I think, when the bike wasnt behaving .... wait till its lighter on fuel.

Miller .... couldnt keep it up. Should be back in the recovery ward.

rossi .... in his element ..... slow and bashing wheelchairs.

Zarco ...... doesnt know how to get out and run alone.

Dovi .... what happened there!?

Some were saying it was windy ?... but the trees dont look wind blown?

Hard night in Cowes the night before ?

Jack Miller is the story of the weekend. What a comeback performance. Leads race for several laps, on a satellite machine.

Indeed, he also got a mention on the commentary for making it back a day quicker than VR !

He did say he would've come back for Motegi if there was a two week break between races.

Rossi got upset when Marquez said in the post race presser that he used the same strategy as he did in 2015.
