Wow! Surely best race of the season.

As much as I'm not a fan of Petrux, amazing ride today, it meant so much for him.

Marquez could have won but he shouldn't be disappointed. If he's second in Mugello by +0.0s, I think he's got the championship in his pocket.

Great recovery drive by Dovi, he didn't seem comfortable all weekend. But he has no reason to celebrate either. Beaten by both his teammate and his rival. I expected more.

IMHO, Rins is the driver of the day by far. I couldn't help but think that this bike DIDN'T belong there! But he was simply magnificent. Hats off, he is starting to grow in me, such a smooth and fast driver.

I feel bad for Miller, and really happy to watch petrux winning a race, especially in that type of race. Great effort by Marc who seems struggling to me in this track, he achieved a very good result. Dovi did great but that first corner in the last lap get him out of the fight. Quartararo didn't find his pace on this sunny sunday but anyways he keep looking good for the future, especially for yamaha with his riding style. Maverick struggling again with the strart.

And finally i'm so proud of Alex Rins who came from 13th to 4th in an insanely race by him, fighting with the best of the best today despite of being slower than them on the straight. Incredible overtakes and effort until he (i think) lost that extra in the corners because of the great effort at the start.
Sorry for my english, i'm trying it without translator LOL

Welcome Mate! Yeah - that was a first lap for the ages.

They should paint the gravel yellow to get yellow dust.

I can’t help but feel that 2016 Mugello was karma for Rossi’s carry on in 2015 and this year was karma for the carry on at Argentina.

Side note: contact from Dovi probably cost Marquez the win. It was a racing incident and myself as a Marquez fan couldn’t give two flicks of piss about it. It’s racing, it happens but imagine the outpour if The exact same thing happened to Rossi.

A fantastic race. I was mentally tired when the race wasn't even at half distance. I was seriously entertained by Rins this race. He rode extremely well. I thought he'd have petered out in the last laps but no, he hung in there. I'd have given him rider of the race, but I have to say Petrucci deserves that accolade today.

What a ride by Petrucci! .... and to think of where he has come from to get to this point of being able to take the fight to MM and Dovi, and prevailing after a titanic battle.

MM is amazing though. On the aggressive side, but amazing. The way he throws the bike into the corners is amazing to watch.

Fabio, as I thought, simply demonstrated that the Yamaha can be coaxed into a single lap special, but over a race distance, there seem to be problems.

Rossi?

To be fair Rossi would have won today if it wasn't for the mechanical failure the caused his bike to crash and cost him the win, no fault of his own. Luckily for the others Rossi could tell the bike was not right very early on, he deliberately hung back in 18th so as to not impede the leaders... absolutely perfect timing in hindsight as his Yamaha suffered catastrophic failure soon after... no wonder they call him the GOAT

Hung back in 18th after ploughing into the back of Mir you mean, typical rookie mistake, how old is he?

Loved all 3 races, incredible and MotoGP was like a moto3 race, great entertainment. Glad Petrux has made it one, now how many more can he get.
