Forcada is the same crew chief who refused to listen to Stoner at LCR, does nothing for the confidence of young riders it seems.

Yes, I also recall something along those lines in Stoner’s rookie year at LCR, although both Stoner and Forcada have spoken more of substandard Michelins and the Michelin front being poor./unsuitable for Stoner in general.

Hard to see how it is Vinales’ fault if they are incompatible, or why he wouldn’t have the final word on set-up and tire strategy.

This is really a waiting game right now. Who's going to pull the pin first and who's going to crash handing a podium to either Lorenzo or Rossi.

Edit: Lorenzo is now looking pretty good for the podium or even a win now.

That was almost like an F1 race.
Easily the most boring race in a long time.

You can thank Michshitlin for their playing field leveling tires.

No one can push so no last lap shootout with the leader since they are all doing 57s.

Fair body of evidence accumulating that Dovi is hard to pass on the last lap though.

Yeah, I was expecting a 4-5 rider shootout after watching the Moto3 and Moto2 races.
Maybe Dunlop should do MotoGP tyres too.

Wasn't talking about that. Lorenzo fucked up any possible battle at the end though with his overtake on MM.

Point is more that everyone has begun to conserve tires for the duration of the races now. That was the peak Pirelli experience in F1. Just conserve and lift into corners to preserve the tires.

Newsflash, Lorenzo actually duals a bit. Dovi runs perfect race. That is all. Snore.....
