Win? Lol no. He had great pace when he passed Slowlenzo, so a top 10 between 5-10 easy.

Hey guys, long time lurker...

What a race! A bunch of wolves fighting for the kill no quit in any of them...Marc though is something else, just not able to feel fear. The 2 Dukes did a scissor move on him and he didn't flinch.

Too bad about Yamaha, they must miss Lorenzo more each race. Rossi is calling all the shots there and cant sort it out. I have a feeling the fan club stayed around to hope for a crash from MM or to boo at the end.

Gday mate, welcome.

I know what you mean, Yamaha have dropped the ball some time ago and not properly recovered, they show a glimmer of hope from time to time with some podiums (even a win at PI) and just when you think they might be onto something, they fall back off the perch.

Welcome Dude. BTW - there were fans booing when MM took the podium. Whose fans? I don't know.

Hey thanks.

It HAS to be the tires, right? How much data does Rossi/Lin have over the years? Mountains. Unless the budget went down, Rossi lost that killer instinct you need to win, even though he does fight for position.

What a cracking race!!

Shame for Miller to go down, might have lost the potential factory ride right there.


That last lap turn 1 was epic. How the three continued? I don't know.

This sport just gets beter and better.

Rins & Suzuki are coming. To be so close at Mugello!

I think its a combination of things like tyres, standardised electronics, the performance being closer between manufacturers, the bikes development path and the riders. I dont think there will be one magic solution or fix that puts them back in the championship game.
Vinales qualifies well and comes on later in the race, Rossi qualifies poorly but does a good job of picking them off to get near the pointy end. Given that the gap across the field now is so small, they need a bike that can perform really strong across a broader selection of tracks and conditions rather than just some here and there. Quartararo has shown that the bike can have the one lap pace required even when its down on top end speed at a place like Mugello.


Edit:
The Suzuki seems to hold the torch for the inline 4's, id love to see them have a satellite team.
