I thought it was the front that MM and CC complained wasn't hard enough for the Honda, which leads us back into the "Tyre Conspiracy", again, since Michelin changed tyres mid season, once more.

While not as fast, Rossi still managed to finish fourth on a medium rear, and it was the Yamaha riders who have complained the Yamaha was tearing the rear. Is this not true? Is Rossi just incapable of riding a hard rear, anymore? (double-entendre, peeps).

Rossi was on a medium front and hard rear.

And for the record Michelin makes garbage tires.

I am happy to leave Rossi out of it now, but I think what both you and Povol say is true, that the Michelin tires are variable and at times perhaps substandard, but that this is not problematic for Dorna, and a way of evening the field. Carmelo even said iirc during the time of deliberately bad F1 tires which wore out that he thought it was a good idea to “improve the racing” in that fashion.

Yeah, but my joke wasn't as funny that way. Stupid Rossi.

This is a "Ducati" track, so if JLo does a JLo fearless rocket start, the race could be over before lap three. We will see how mature Marc has become. I imagine as long as he is ahead of Rossi, he will be alright, however, he definitely bleeds winner blood. Which makes him exciting in virtually every race.

Same three on the steps as the last race. Probably the same order.

It's between Dovi and Lorenzo for me,Marquez 3rd,Rossi 4th or 5th,Vinales nowhere and Cuntslow must be due an appointment with a gravel trap.
