Oooh I'm still gutted. Can't believe Fabio's luck.
Don't know if he could stay in front of Rins, but a podium place should be there surely.

First good race by Maverick Vinales!! Let's hope today's result will boost his confidence, Yamaha need both their riders.

France will put up a good test to see if Yamaha is truly competitive

Two other observations.

1.The Yamaha is the ultimate “learners bike”. Almost anyone can go super-fast on it. No one, other than, maybe, MM, would win a championship on the current iteration.

2. The Michelins are currently biased towards no one. And they make for way better racing than Bridgestones. They are offering more options for more riding styles in more conditions than the ‘stones ever did.

Gutted for Fabs. Damn!

Dovi - smart racing - just hang in and try not to crash - continue to push Marc.
I got hopes - but making no predictions.

Vinales - I think - is unlikely to do this well consistently.

As to the Petronas hope of being on the podium . . . we all knew that wasn't going to happen. Just sad to see Fabio's race cut short through no fault of his own.

Miller's become the new Crashlow.

Tracks with longer straightaways will bring to the fore Yamaha's shortcomings.

Fucking great! Kind of almost a certainty he would be on the podium. A narrow track with short straightaways: just what the doctor ordered for Suzuki.

It's a shame Dovi could not start well to battle MM. Looking at the time table, he ran 1'38.068 at the 24th lap. For comparison, MM ran 1'38.051 at lap 15, where he told media he pushed to show his hand for opponents.

Dovizioso is Dovizioso, he always manages to make a shit somewhere, somehow, to get out of the title race. Don't know what the fuck he was thinking about at the start when he decided to go off the line trying to get the lead, he should have positioned himself behind MM. At least he could make some pressure, maybe even pass and hold MM for some laps until fuel decreases and they could push.

Well, as predicted, satellite riders vanished as the lap count increased. I highly doubt Quartararo would keep the pace up for much of the time. Too bad his Yamaha breaked, I thought it was the best package, as our troll friend is typing here and there. Yes, only joking.

MM has another title in the bag. The pair bike + rider is unbeatable at least this first part of the season, I don't think Ducati will react in the time needed. As Rossi says, MM is destroying the sport, LoL. Btw, Domenicali told that MM was feeling the pressure. LoL... I think Claudio Domenicali has been one of the best crap talkers and dumbest CEO out there, always throwing ammunition to his opponents, for free.

Rins and Suzuki are doing great.
Congratulations for Vinales.
Rossi needs to qualify better.
Dovi is a chicken, never delivers when needed, always gets too late in the party. Will never be champion, better go fish with Stoner, it would form a nice pair of bottlers.
Petrux is getting better but that's is it, nothing incredible.

About, Lorenzo... well...he should sue Honda, that should indenize him. I'm talking serious. They hired him only to have one less race contender to compete with MM in some weekends, that was obvious for me. I knew since the beginning. MM knew it would be like that and so "allowed" JLo to be hired. Well, where is "the best bike" now? Not a single Honda in the near sight (top 7) besides MM. MM + Honda is much like Stoner + Ducati. I would like to see what Honda really is without a Marquez/Stoner.

About Ducati, it's time to reinvent a new package. That's the peak of Dalligna GP15 and will not get there, that's clear. Absurd lack of corner speed, it'll be impossible to be champion against MM with only acceleration. Time to send that L desmo to bin and start a new engine layout and bike project from the scratch. Currently Desmosedici iteration is showing signs of being in the top form and will not evolve significantly in corner. The problem is Dalligna seems tired and a bit frustrated, even more with Domenicali annoying the team with his loads of crap talking. Gigi is already talking about "Ducati can go well without me", something like that, so I'm feeling he will not be around for much time. Maybe he is tired of smoking Marlboro.

Marc does Marc. I'm not sure if Rins or Rossi would have had much for him even if they qualified better. I am so impressed with Rins over the past few seasons. He seems to remain fairly cool under the gun. You don't see a lot of desperate lunges or wild passes. Rossi still showing some impressive race craft. Dovi rode smart. Knew he had little, so pickup the points you can and move on. He was a lot slower than I had anticipated. I feel horrible for Fabio. I'm not sure he could have kept his place with Rins on the charge, but thats not the way you want your race to end.

"The truth is that I had a great desire. I don't like winning races like this, but I wanted to make things clear. It was important to show our rivals that I made a mistake in Austin, but that I can win all the races. Now we are also leading the World Championship again"

Good Race mostly....

1- MM - Boring but deserved win...
2- Rins - Lets just hope Suzuki doesnt fall behind in development throughout the season vs the other factory teams
3- Maverick - About time.....you got Suzuki envy dont ya?
4- Dovi - Playing the long game ... salvaged what you could....
5- Petrux - You should have attacked Dovi....
6- Rossi - Great recovery....Yamaha needs to do more work though....
7- Franky - Relax....When you want to go to it....
8- Cal - Better Q may have seem a better result....but still 2nd best Honda
9- Nakagami - Keep up the good work and you might get the Repsol 2nd seat for 2020
10 - Bradl - You should be MMs teammate...

Fabio - Bad luck...podiums are coming, and so will factory rides....
Miller - Did you have a quiet word with Aleix behind the paddock after the race? I hope you did...
JLOst - You are shaming HRC and yourself ... Japanese have solutions for such dishonorable performances...
