I was suprised to see marquez using the soft rear and dovi the medium. I thought ducati on average uses a softer tyre then the honda. But maybe that's the front tyres and not the rear.

Apparently. I thought during and immediately after the race that after he didn't try to fuck Marc's championship, he had seen how ridiculous his conspiracy was. But not so unfortunately.

He was happy outwardly but you could tell it was disengenouis. He layed into Zarco again as well.

Enjoyed the races but was disappointed for Dovi. I don't get why it was such a bad race for Ducati? PI should suit them.

Observations from the trackside, it was me and about 10 other fans that cheered when Miller was leading, then pretty much all the rest when Rossi led. Bloody hell the walking dead yellow zombies are everywhere. The KTM is the best bike by far to watch at least where I was, the last corner. Don't know who it was Smith I think but he was on it sideways and I'm shocked how good that bike looked and sounded, better than Ducati. I think KTM will challenge and surpass Ducati soon, wish Miller would sign with them. The trellis frame concept, what's so bad about it?

Lorenzo has changed his style massively. Last time I saw him trackside was 2012 very smooth, now he is by far the most sideways of all Ducs, was rear wheel steering through the last turn. When I watched Rossi ride the Duc I noted he didn't change his style anything like Lorenzo has. Granted it's not working, yet. I don't think he will ever beat Marquez riding loose, but if nothing else he has added a string to his bow that can only help. God forbid he gets back on a Yamaha I think he would destroy Rossi.

It's a bit disappointing all the bikes are big bang and sound so similar. Only the Aprilia sounds different, and it sounds shit or at least the electronics are way off.

All credit to Marquez he is the PI master.

With regards to Dovi and Ducati.
1. Dovi chose the wrong tyre it would seem.
2. Dovi made a rare mistake that put him all the way back into 20th or 21st.
3. Dovi was still able to run similar times to guys at the front after his mistake so the bike can't be that bad.

Rossi got upset when Marquez said in the post race presser that he used the same strategy as he did in 2015.
I thought it was a nice little dig...

Well he can go play with Rossi's pork chipolata.

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.

FTFY.

You needed to add the fishing emojis.

That was something. MotoGP looked like a Moto3 race. To his credit vr didn't play any dirty tricks. Dovi made a mistake, oh well. Cool to get Birdman's trackside feedback. I was pulling for Zarco but he made too many mistakes, looking like Marquez in his first season. He was lucky not to take Marquez out. Kudos to Miller, leading in the dry for at least a few laps.

Man I am going to PI at least once!

It looked to me that Marquez sat up mid corner to give Rossi a little purposeful nudge. I thought it might be intentional

Me, too. Of course they showed MM hitting VR over and over, but not so much MM getting hit. The bias is bad for the sport. VR looked about as happy as a second place can get, I think. He really impressed me with how much better he can be than the BAD fans.

Geez, I get that you like Andrea, but you have zero evidence to back up this claim. If you use the performance of the other Hondas, particularly Pedrosa, I would say that the difference for Honda is Marquez, and that if he was on the Ducati, he would at least equal Dovi's performance. The Hondas are not doing that well, you know, and Pedrosa is LUCKY to be in 5th, in my opinion.
