Its like the apple tree, one fruit sets the other flower fails, thats where it went wrong for Dani.

Another freaky title post from this place ... so Rossi somehow blocked other riders from joining Yamaha so he could have Vinales on board to beat him at Philip Island? Are we back in bizarro-land?

Honda bike was built for Marquez before he even came onboard with the Honda MotoGP team, the tires were made to work best for the Honda rider at 130 lbs (that's Marquez just in case you didn't know his weight), not for Danni (112 lbs) who can't get heat into the tire. Dream on with this rubbish about blocking ... so why did Zarco NOT go to Honda? Think about it.

And today, we witness Marquez the village idiot do yet another stupid move that could have ended Zarco's life ... Marquez knew Zarco was right next to him as came along side ... then Marquez moves over in front of Zarco and hits the brakes!! What? Where exactly did Marquez think Zarco would go? Just magically disappear?

The Ducati forced Lorenzo to evolve.

This is to his benefit.
And yet Bautista evolved in 1 race weekend where it took Jorge 1 and 1/2 years? Sometimes I wonder if some of you even watch the MotoGP races?

And I wonder if you do watch or have watched anybody except Valentino Rossi all these years.

How do you know what MM knew?, and where did Zarco think MM was going to go, off the track perhaps?. And how is MM the rider at fault whether he is the rider in front, or the rider behind as he was at Argentina this year?.

Zarco apologised to Marquez which kind of indicates that Zarco does not see it the same way you do

From here https://www.motorsport.com/motogp/ne...crash/3204378/

"We were going so fast, there was not a lot of space on the left side," he said. "He was close to Jack and he came back into the race line for Turn 1. I was also there.

"It was a pity, because I could have done a nice race. I was feeling good, I wanted to be in first or second or third to [use] my pace and maybe pull away. Maybe I could have pulled away with Maverick [Vinales], I don't know."

He added that he's already cleared the air with Marquez, who managed to stay on his bike but was forced to retire from the race due to the impact.

"I went to him just to say sorry, because I totally destroyed the back of his bike," the Frenchman added. "He told me no worries, the most important thing is that I didn't injure myself.

"As a racer, as a sportsman, we totally understand each other."

The 2018 bike was a significant step up though. George himself went back to the 2017 a few times because he couldn’t get his head around the 2018 bike.

Bautistache said yesterday that the reason he lost out towards the end was that the gearbox throw was very different from what he is used to and he screwed up a few shifts.

Gearbox throw? Do you mean shifter? That's a simple adjustment if so.
