I still hold out hope that one race, Rossi will get a win!
Rossi rode a really good race and certainly had the field bar MM covered. I doubt MM goes the whole remainder of the season without a DNF, particularly if he clinches the title with races to spare, and perhaps will give Rossi a chance on a Yamaha track, but his performance today was controlled and clinical and he has been provided with plenty of motivation not to let Rossi finish ahead of him.

Dovi is looking like he only had that one exceptional season in him. Vinales again has good ultimate pace but can’t seem to ride around early race problems

I've been one of the guys on here who has said Jorge will adapt to the Honda just find but I have to say. I think I was wrong when I said that, Ducati and Yamaha are clearly a better package at this stage and the difference is Marc Marquez. It's not just Dani struggling which may or may not be because of the tyres but everyone else on a Honda is struggling.

5/9 races this year and it could've easily been 6 when the rules are supposed to prevent this kind of domination all while on a bike nobody else seems to be able to do a whole lot on including a brilliant rider like Pedrosa.

The fastest Honda today in what has previously been a Honda circuit was 8th with 4 Ducati's and 2 Yamahas between the repsol bikes. I don't think either Rossi or Vinales could do shit on the current Honda nor the Honda from '15-now because others who have had similar results as them through the years ie Crutchlow and Pedrosa are really struggling.

I went to watch this race. Mostly because this might be the last race at Sachsenring.
Rode a bike up there in leathers too.

It’s a fantastic track for viewers, almost every spot gives a wide, expansive view. Almost 90% of the people showed up in Rossi gear. Deal with it.

I sat in the Rossi grandstand. Deal with it too. Not one person there booed Marquez or anyone else. So if you heard any boos (Or if you think you heard any), it might just be in your head or it might be people who actually think he’s a little cunt.

Well he might be, but he rode an incredible race today and so did Rossi. Money well spent.

Marquez had a solid margin, as he has all season. He pulled the pin when needed.

Bautista was impressive, Lorenzo reverted to his Ducati mean.

Rossi was strong. He's clearly best of the rest, but the gap to Marquez is big. Yamaha need another step.

I think the main equalisation measure that has had any effect has been the tire lottery, and as JPS has said all along that only worked for so long in F1. MM is too adaptable if he rides judiciously, and the only other rider of quality adaptable to a reasonably broad range of tires is both 14 years older and has similar tire preferences to MM.

What they probably need more is for Rossi to go back to being 25 years old,

Yeah, you are representing a Rossi fan pretty well. Crass, vulgar, and a poor loser, while pretending to be a race fan. This does not surprise me. I have seen it for many years from Rossi fans. What is surprising is that you got a like from "libby", a woman who I tried to respect as a lady. Apparently, I was mistaken. But, I suppose even some classless, penis-envy jackasses have dumb girlfriends.

Libby is close to being the most genuine person on here, and I suspect was endorsing the praise of the quality of Rossiís and MMís riding.
