First warm up lap shows complete stupidity of the new rule IMO.

Good race. I’m not sure if Dovi will be happy with how hard he had to work for that one. Vinales still doesn’t know how to start a race. Rossi did a good job to finish as high as he did. I still think if Honda and not just Márquez are doing that well at Qatar it’s going to be hard for anyone to stop the Honda/Márquez combo.

MotM goes to Iannone for crashing on the cool down lap. Seriously though probably Cal Crutchlow should get MotM.

Cracking race. If that's a sign, this season is going to be epic.

Quartaro was impressive from pit lane. Have to think if he started from his grid position he could have been any where in the top ten.

Good job by Dovi, congrats.
But I can't help feeling that MM seems the real deal, once again. I didn't think he would be that competitive. Argentina & Texas are coming, that's bad news for everybody else.

I still can't believe this guy, Vinales. I mean I was downplaying yesterday's performance on the grounds that he may still be bad at starts, but
It's hard to watch it happen again though & what's even worse is the fact that he was nowhere even in his -traditionally- strong second part of the race.

Congrats to Cal as well & Rins, they were fantastic to watch. And Vale of course

But MM has always been the real deal, I don't get into this theory of "this year he is already good in Qatar, let alone the rest... bla bla", last year he had trouble and still fought with Dovi until last meters, indeed he got second place by 0.027, this year by 0.023...

Honda did not do anything incredible with the engine, in fact they already had a very powerful engine, now they just work in firing order, if you get to hear the engine, clearly is a mid-term between a big-bang and an screamer engine. It got more power in high revs in expense of power in low revs, we could CLEARLY see Dovi exiting corners much stronger than Marquez and after 5th gear Honda is well more elastic. It's a game of compromise, not miracles. If Ducati change its firing order to behave more elastic, Dovi would hit 360 KM/h in the straight in Qatar.

There is no incredible Honda (actually I bet in low grip scenarios they will struggle a lot), this year will be very tough but still MM is MM, he is a level above all others as we know. I don't think Dovi will have all the ingredients needed to win the title.

Suzuki has grown a LOT, and that machine is a corner devil. Super fast in mid-corner, incredible, they just need a slightly better engine.

What is Vinales? A fart... I was betting he was the only one capable of stop MM, but seems I lost this bet. I really don't know anymore who Yamaha should favor, Rossi is old but started miles far away and still 5th ahead of MV, LOL... Rossi is Rossi.. Yamaha should help him.

Lorenzo? LoL... as expected (at least by me). No easy life for him outside Yamaha realm. Actually, I would say Suzuki would fit Lorenzo the most. He should really consider it.

Problem for Ducati they have always exploited the rules in both SBK & Motogp. History has taught them & us when they piss Honda off they lose. If HRC was to employ all those little trickery bits they would be in big trouble. Remember the RC51!!! As it stands with all the tricks they can throw on the bike they can barely get ahead of the RCV. They really need to learn how to make a proper bike. They won this race but got schooled by Suzuki on how a bike works in a corner.


As for yamaha, sure they won't complain. It will be on their mule in Argentina.
