Too bad for Rins but he’ll learn from it.
That looked like a really high speed off for Rossi and Nakagami, hope he’s ok.
It seemed a strange tyre choice with both the Suzukis on the hard front compared to the rest of the field, not sure if that contributed or not. Sucks for Rins though, he would have been scrapping with the top 3 I felt.

Morning fellas! I'm a wee late but here are my 2 cents about the things that I got impressed with the most within and after the race, in completely random order and for sure I am forgetting something so I'll be back later

- Assen is a freakin' great track. I say that about a lot of tracks. Maybe I just like tracks.

- For the past 3 years all I've heard about the blue bikes has been "Yamaha this, Yamaha that, Yamaha is a shit bike, they need to (...)".
They looked rather fine to me this weekend. I saw a rookie that hammers down poles at 20 y/o. A Vinales that often can be faster than anyone in FPs. I see a bike that gets anyone new to it faster (Quartararo, Morbidelli, but also Folger and Vinales himself) and that gets those who switch from it completely lost (Lorenzo, Zarco). Maybe it ain't that bad deep down?

- Vinales, when in shape like yesterday, is literally riding with a style as spectacular as Marquez's.

- Ducati is no longer "the little Italian factory that challenges itself against the Japanese giants". As much as I adore Ducati since day one, one thing has got to be said: they got the Audi/VW + Phillip Morris money, they do more research and engineering that any other brand. Their riders have both shown they can win.
How come on tracks/conditions that are not good to them they are unable to even dream about a podium?

- I'm a Rossi fan as much as Noel Gallagher is a Man Utd fan, but I do not enjoy seeing him crashing. I think he really has lost lucidity these past few races.

- Marquez does NOT like getting second

The Rossi crash where he took out Nakagami - https://twitter.com/M_Masselink/stat...73176551153665


And from Rossi's on board - https://gfycat.com/impassionedanguishedenglishsetter

And a pic still from the videos


And before anyway asks, Rossi apparently was very quick to accept blame and apologised

I highly doubt anyone was going to ask, hard to escape the blame on this one though...even if you are Rossi.

I do think MotoGp did quite a good job of not showing any footage for as long as they could get away with it though.

Another curious observation. Yes, I know, different times, different circumstances, but a fact is a fact: Preziosi, with all his budget limitations, won a WC with only 4 years of work (almost with 3), D'alligna hasn't won any with 6 years, and most probably by 7 years of work.

Seems Doubtouso is not the only one with severe bad luck in the red team.

Preziosi had Stoner and sorry if that made a bit of difference

Like I said, "different times, different circumstances".

Preziosi found Stoner, bet on him, when no one wanted him. Whose merit is it??

Rins would have been up there with vin and marc and rossi with the 2 ducs and the other petronas yama, if none of them would have crashed. Would have been interesting with lorenzo too. Anyway, marc 2019 champ after Barcelona. Dovi will finish 2nd again and rossi 3rd. So this season is over. He will win at sachsenring and have a somekind of 50 point lead after the break.
