Considering how much time PS members spend bitching about... just about anything, it's kinda ironic the way peeps are turning against Dovi for blowing off steam dontcha think?

Marquez doesn't seem to bother with time attacks in FP2 anymore. I think he spends the whole session working on getting the bike setup for the race while everyone else kills themselves trying to move up the time sheets.

He hasn't won anything since the 125cc title 14 years ago. He has no leg to stand on since he can't win anything in GP or even the old 250cc class. He should keep his mouth shut.

I like Dovi. He only really started giving it to Jorge after Jorge wouldn't get out of the way at Valencia, and after Jorge went to the media saying that Dovi has tried to undermine him throughout his career.

So, only those who've won championships have earned the right to vent about perceived inequity or dishonesty? Only those with top status, who already have all their Ducs in a row should have the privilege of speaking their mind. Yeah... that makes perfect sense.

Long time no post :P still been reading on occasion though!

Unusual results today, both sessions a little mixed from what I expected especially FP2, be interesting to see how it progresses over the Saturday sessions...
Guys on BTSport said MM only used 2 sets of tyres today, never sure they know what they're talking about but seems likely given the results... Another smart start to the weekend, look forward to seeing how it works out with when he turns the screws tomorrow...
Post session inverview with Vinales was quite odd, normally he has a face on when he is unhappy, today was a big smiles while complaining about the bike, can't remember last time I saw that from him!
Really hoping Bautista can put together another solid weekend 2 top 6s on the bounce will do him good with RB Ring coming up next!

As has been said, Lorenzo has 46 victories and 3 world titles. What has Dovizioso done other than luck into a season that was brought about by a in-season tire change that hamstrung Vinales and others? Like I said, at the end of the day when the pressure cooker came full on, he folded like a house of cards.

He didn’t go to the media afterwards at all. The media ran an earlier interview with Movistar where Lorenzo was sarcastically and jokingly agreeing with them.
The media love a good stir...

I hope Lorenzo is spending time figuring out a way to make the hard tire work for him, if it’s going to at this track. Looks like good weather, high temps expected?
