Maybe Dunlop should do MotoGP tyres too.
The Dunlops looked pretty shot at the end of that race.

They did for the front runners, but only because they went balls out.
Even Marquez was riding on glass today.

Oh well, I can always rewatch Assen.

Solid ride from Dovi, not much between the top 3 and it certainly wasn't a given, he deserved the win. I was really hoping for more of paint scraping dogfight in those final laps given all the words spoken earlier in the week.

Great race. As I've said, the Ducati is the best bike. Petrucci, Dovi and Lorenzo all looked good.

Marquez was very good but was missing a little on corner exit, I think.


Yamaha's late race pace needs more work, but they're not far. Rossi rode well. Let's see what the test brings.

I don’t know how many people here watched the press conference of all the tech heads, but Yamaha did something rare and admitted that they fucked up with the engine and that’s the reason the riders have too much wheelspin.

It’s clear that given a bike that is equal to the Honda and the Ducati, Rossi can still win races. But that’s not going to happen this year.

Lorenzo sure put on a show in Parc Ferme, looking all congratulatory to Dovi. His rep for being a disruptive negative influence in the garage may be catching up with him.

No manufacturer is going to be spot on at every round. A control tire is a control tire. Peeps memory is short. There were more than a few issues w Bridgestone. Michelin's come a long way. And some truly memorable races have been run last year and this, on Michelins.

Yes, he was such a disruptive influence at Yamaha that he won their last 3 world championships, and oddly they don’t look particularly likely to win the title for a second year with his baleful influence removed.

Maybe the improvements of the Ducati bike are all down to Gigi, but it doesn’t look particularly likely Dovi is responsible to me, apart from riding very well last year and at Qatar and again in the recent race. Gigi by all reports wanted Jorge to stay.
