You donít think Fabio gets into the podium? There was a good 2 seconds from him to third when he went out and IIRC he was increasing the gap.
AJV80 and MagicMarc93 like this.

Lap 14 since you ask. ...Over half race distance and showing no signs of slowing.
On the lowest spec M1. Seriously impressive.

Yes it looks good in the short run. If these were time-trials this would be significant. But as has been pointed out, repeatedly both in the press (to say nothing of everybody with elementary powers of observation who actually watch the races) and by race commentators - the Yamahas (both satellite and factory) suffer a degradation in power and overmuch tire wear at about the 3/4 race distance and then fade back.

You seem stuck on the idea that I'm denigrating the skills of the riders. I am not. I'm merely pointing out limitations of the current M1 - which are obvious to everybody - except you. Yamaha has been in an R&D deadzone for two seasons now and thus far show no signs of revival.

In the the previous race Rossi had the skills to win, but despite his talent for finishing on worn tires, he could not compete against Rins on the Suzuki which is still considered to be underpowered. And Rossi only got that close to the front because Marquez and Crutchlow crashed.

The factory Yamaha squad have suffered since Lorenzo left. Absolutely none of these so called issues plagued him. Great bike they just need a decent rider.

So Maverick on the M1 was definitely going to catch him?

When Lorenzo was still riding - the Yamaha was competitive. In the interim they have failed to keep up with Honda and Ducati both of whom have continually improved.

Zarco was the last rider other than Rossi to regularly excel on the M1. However development of the bike has been largely focused on Rossi which likely was a deciding factor
when he jumped ship, tho I'm not inclined to blame Rossi for it's current decline any more than I would credit him for it's better days.

Just a few posts back you were touting the immense talent of the two satellite riders and here, you're saying the bike suffers because they're not up to snuff as compared to Lorenzo. Which is it?

I specifically said the FACTORY squad have suffered since Lorenzo' s departure. Not the satellite squad.
