So are Yamaha going to continue to pretend that Zarco having the old engine is worth an extra 7/10ths?

Incredible lap from Zarco.

Should pain everyone more that Yamaha refused to keep him because of Rossi.

1:4.

Hopefully a good race tomorrow.
Glad that Zarco got the pole, but damn, that puts SO much pressure on him tomorrow. The new surface giving such fast laptimes, must be playing hell with the techs trying to dial in the bikes. Even Lorenzo looked really good for a few moments, but he won't be able to do that consistently for the whole race. Happy to see Petrucci up there too. Factory Yamahas looking awful. What a shite year for them. Seeing Zarco so much more competitive must be driving them crazy. Vinales must be really pissed.

Maybe someone can convince Zarco to go the hard front tomorrow, cos he wont last on the new surface on a soft.

No doubt really bruised up. He gave a thumbs up on the stretcher, so probably not a broken hip or pelvis. When you break one of those, you won't be giving a thumbs up. That's a world of pain. Hope to see him back tomorrow.

Major shit going down at Marc VDS. Barthélemy fired, but several rider contracts are signed to his company, not with Marc VDS. This is going to get ugly.

Rather sad attempt at a Yamaha jab, but that is to be expected.
No, they would be poison to Yamaha now.
