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).
It is the front that has been the issue and Marquez clearly stated that at the Brno test that is what has been the problem and that is is what they concentrated on during the test.

Didn't Cal, after Brno, say that his front tyre was fine but the rear was squirmy?

Turned out he'd over-applied his Preparation H. It's all good now.

So in the press conference, the riders were asked to draw their ideal track. Notice Lorenzo has already started to analyzing the capability of the Honda. He drew a square box for 2018 what he is currently riding. But he drew what looks like an over extended clover leaf for 2019. Seems pretty telling.................

No a bad view for the weekend. Hopefully we can get something similar at the last corner as 2017. Maybe a slightly different outcome.

Surprised to see the Ducs looking so strong in FP1 though.
Petrucci decided to turn up this early???

Thunderstorms forecast for late today and early tomorrow.
I'd rather use underpants made of coarse sandpaper than a yellow brolly. Unfortunately the waterproofs I have brought are my hi viz bike ones, so I may still look like a minion.

Better to look a minion than to join the yellow hordes in my opinion,if you did that you would have to start booing whenever Marquez appeared.

Well that wasn't just your run of the mill wet. That was wet as fuck. Wetter than an otter's pocket.
Zarco must have fell out with his garage if he would rather be the only one out on track in this than sit in there with his team.
