Lorenzo was ahead of Rossi when Rossi decided to plough into Mir.

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!
After the performance from Danillo, he must be aware that he's staying where he is, he's making silly errors, but I can see he's got halfway to understanding on getting round the corners better without so much tyre wear, he'll get there.

I Ride: Honda CRF250 (modified for Dirt Track)
This one got me emotional!!!

After all Petrucci went through, after all the people saying he didn't deserve a factory Duc even before the season started and so on....

I'm not bandwagoning nor saying he's the new Stoner, my point is simply: WHAT A RIDE, Danilo!!!

The crowd was amazing too for once (I was at Mugello) other than the usual Neanderthals booing MM, which was undeserved as he was by far the most impressing rider to watch in terms of sheer style...he's just so mentally fast and "mean" on the bike...not that it's news, but I get to see only one or two races per year in real life and it's always different to witness it with your own eyes.

A few random things I saw, heard or acknowledged:

- Mugello is the best track in the world, period.

- A lot of the fans that go to Mugello are retarded Valebans, I was ashamed when they booed MM and there's no other way to define it other than embarrassing, but when Danilo was on top of the podium and the whole valley sang the anthem together, well that felt cool.

- Lorenzo is flying to Japan today to meet with the HRC engineers as he needs a full re-design of the bike in order to be competitive.

- Rins is a beast but has the less-good-looking riding style among all MotoGP riders IMHO, despite being able to ride some really internal lines.

- Alex Marquez will likely go to Ducati Pramac in 2020 thanks to Alzamora's "support", but it is unclear who he'd replace.

- Dovi was PISSED at Danilo's gnarly overtake, which caused me one of the very rare moments of not being on Dovi's side...win and lose with your chin up, Danilo just wanted it more badly than anyone else today.

- I have no idea if anything similar happened in the non-Italian interviews but Marquez gave a real roast to Lorenzo in his post-race interview...long story short: on Saturday Lorenzo stated that he needs a bike designed for his style as the current Honda is too Marquez-oriented and therefore too difficult for other riders, proof would be that only MM can win with it...MM was asked about it by the Italian journalist after the race and literally went like "well honestly he should have tried the 15 or 16 Honda...THAT was a difficult bike. A team shall listen to the rider that is winning, not to the guy that gets far behind...they will not listen to you if you get 13th. Nakagami got 5th, so it shows we have a good bike"

I never heard MM so "sharp" but frankly that was a cool answer (and I like Lorenzo, don't get me wrong).


- Danilo's dad is cool AF.

- Tuscanian wine is REALLY good.


That's it for now

Rossi won in Assen as well even if there is a big * next to the win.

I think Yamaha hit the ground running in 2017 with a bike Viñales was more than happy on. Rossi bitched and moaned until he got the tyre he wanted which made yamahas results worse at which point he got the chassis he had demanded and again their results got worse.
Rossi in particular has blamed everything on the bike other than himself, first it was the tyres when that made things worse it was the chassis when that didn’t work then it was the electronics and Yamahas failure to ‘trick’ the electronics like Honda and Ducati allegedly were. Now that ‘loophole’ has been fixed by the rules and nothing’s changed it’s the engine. While it’s true they’re handicapped by their engine if tomorrow they fixed it and had the same top speed as Ducati it would then be something else when his results didn’t come.

My stance on the issue is simple, Viñales was never the second coming of Lorenzo, the issues that plague him now where there at Suzuki even when he was fighting with Aleix. Rossi at 40 is no longer at his best, Rossi at his best was inferior to both Stoner and Lorenzo as the h2h results show. Marquez is head and shoulders above Lorenzo as the results show. During his ‘development god’ phase Yamaha had a brilliant engineer, Burgess and Rossi was having tyres made to his specs. The biggest hinderance to Rossi’s career has been a control tyre that is decided by a vote from the riders. Yamahas failure came when Jarvis put Rossi before Lorenzo. Rossi has nowhere to go other than Yamaha all Jarvis had to do was have Lorenzo sign a contract before offering Rossi one, instead he offered contract to them both at the same time and showed Lorenzo that despite winning their last 3 titles he wasn’t the one they really wanted.

Ducati now have a brilliant engineer who has methodically improved their bike to the stage where it is now the best bike on the grid. While their bike doesn’t love turning like the Yamaha, Honda and Suzuki it is making up for that by braking and acceleration. The added bonus of that is it makes their bike hard to stick a pass on. All this has happened while their riders didn’t bitch and moan at every inconvenience.
Honda have Marquez who’s ability is otherworldly and managed to win titles on bikes that shouldn’t have been capable (16&17). Honda have worked on their weak points even when their strongest point (braking) suffered. All this happened while their riders didn’t bitch and moan at every inconvenience.

After watching this several times I'd conclude without Petrucci's move there was 50/50 between Marc and Dovi. Maybe Dovi had even a better chance to come out as a winner. Thanks to Petrucci Dovi was firmly out of contention.
