A dirty track with uneven repaving in light rain. Quali under the circumstances mean little to nothing. The better riders are extra circumspect, preferring to take needed risk in the actual race. Everybody is wary of turn 13.

Not to be a dick. But it wasn't a race. I got the distinct feeling that most riders were being tentative because of track conditions. How many times have we seen some hot jr rider take a poll and end up in 4th at the end of the race?

I completely understand why the top riders didnt take the risk....Miller may not be in contention for the title at the moment on the Pramac machine, but he is showing what is possible on that bike if you can adapt to it and find its limits....

Miller should get at the least the same treatment from Duc that Petrux does, and maybe even get a shot at Lorenzo's seat when he leaves it....Young and hungry is sometimes a better combination than overpaid and paranoid....

You sure? The cameras all missed the lap in the coverage I get. They were too busy following you know who on his cool down lap. Ah you gotta love MotoGP, they turned off his transponders. Jackwho on pole, commentators were like huh? Fuck yeah I love this shit. Race prediction 1. Jackwho?, 2. Doviwho?

Are you saying Zarco should be getting the factory Yam ride? Oh sorry you’re still on the Lorenzo crusade..........carry on.

It is a well known truism that just because you are paranoid it doesn't mean everyone isn't after you, quite applicable to Lorenzo's late tenure as a Yamaha factory rider imo.

I tend to agree Jack's riding style is more suited to the Ducati than Lorenzo's, but this is likely to be true of other elite riders as well, possibly Zarco, very likely Vinales, and rather definitely Rossi.

I am not as strong a Lorenzo partisan as I once was after Valencia 2017, but the fact that it looks very much as though he has repeated Rossi's error in signing for Ducati doesn't mean that Rossi's own Ducati adventure somehow didn't happen, or change that in the opinion of many including me as the winner of the last 3 riders' titles on a Yamaha Lorenzo was treated badly by Yamaha, more than likely with the motive of appeasing Rossi.
