You’d have a wired in jaw if you said that in my physical vicinity.
I agree as I suspect did Libby that both MM and Rossi rode great races, which would have been even better to see at the track. Even though he prefers a hard tire MM has a Rossi-like ability to preserve a soft tire if he applies himself, as he did in that wet race last year.

I would have no problem with a stand full of Willairot fans booing MM, btw. I am not sure a stand full of Rossi fans has quite the same justification.

Very enjoyable race! Congratulations to Marc, another great performance. Valentino did the best he could with that bike and had a very solid race, but Yamaha still lacks speed. I’m also very glad to see Vinales on the podium again.

Hate on you old bag of dust but lay off libby.

Racism is good. Rossi fans are not and Libby is a terrible person.
This is the position the racist irredeemable deplorable position Pony takes.
No worries Pony. Your in good company here. I bet Povol invites you over for a BBQ and Michael M puts me on ignore for calling your bullshit out.

There was a bit of tire preservation to start off with. By all accounts no one was really sure what the rubber would be like after about 20 or so laps. I think this was evident by Marc going easy(ish) but once he saw that Vale had closed him down to 0.6s then he decided there was enough rubber left underneath him to push.
Obviously Marc was untouchable, but that should not detract from Vale who rode a fantastic race and is showing incredible consistency.

I also think that Bautista looked great. He has been top 10 in his last 3 or 4 races and he said that the team had found the problem that was clearly hampering his early season.
I hope he can stay in the paddock, his last few races are much more indicative of his abilities.
But that mustache is horrific.

The Bautistasche is... an acquired taste I guess.
Things I observed at the track. All the Ducatis sound so... quiet. This is definitely different from last year. The KTMs are loud as FUCK. The Aprilias sounded almost musical last year, but they are more like the others now.

The traction control on the satellite Ducatis cut in way more aggressively than all the other bikes.

You can definitely see how much quicker the Yamahas flip from side to side compared to the other bikes. At the same time, you can also see how much slower they drive out of the corners compared to the other bikes. That’s one sweet handling chassis and if they get those electronics sorted out, we will be back to seeing Yamaha domination.

Agreed, the 'Skeletal/mechanical' basis of the Yam' seems to be as sweet as it gets (I was trying to think of a more suitable description than the one you used, Synn, but you hit the nail on the head). The acceleration gremlin does seem to flit between Yam and Honda, certainly a couple of years back the Hondas were getting starched on the straights, primarily due to lack of drive coming out of the corners, hence why we saw so many crashes from the Hondas, as they tried to make up ground on the anchors. Certainly the stable nature of the Yam has helped to prevent this, however credit has to be given to Vale and Mav' for keeping it rubber side down during what must be a very frustrating period.
Let's not forget that if it wasn't for the crazy almost preternatural skills of Marc then the Yam's would be 1,2. Which, I feel, just goes to show what a good chassis (with a solid rider) can do.
