Pretty awesome rides by both of them!!
Hated to think it, but I reckon we all knew that last lap pass was inevitable. Quatarraro's got nothing to be ashamed about. Fastest Yamaha ahead of much more experienced riders on full factory bikes. Starting to think he ain't a flash in the pan. Knew the Ducatis wouldn't fare well but gutted they did so badly.

I'd wager he's just fucking with Rossi, because a tow from a rider so much slower than yourself, is useless.

He probably is fucking with Rossi somewhat, but unless drastically slower, any rider punching a hole in the air for him to tuck behind and get a slipstream from is useful. Also having a rider in front to use as a reference is helpful. Rossi doesn't have to be on a pole setting pace (just close to it), watch Silverstone Q2 and you'll see just how helpful Rossi can be for towing Marquez.

Good race by Quatarraro, his bike is down on power & speed yet he held off Marquez til the last lap. Quatarraro needs to be on a factory M1, once that happens he's likely the rider to consistently be able to challenge Marc.

A reference for what exactly? The only rider to win more times at Misano (in the interval since he started riding in the premiere class) was Dani. A time period BTW - during which Rossi has only won once. Hardly the template for being more competitive at Misano.

Having a rider in front to follow helps you see your lines through the corners and your braking zones. Does Marc need another rider for this? Probably not, but he'll take any advantage he can get whenever he can get it.

And what is the problem with him doing that? Just like war, any competitive sport requires knowing your opponent weakness.

Of course if that were his motivation, he would be following Rins, Vinales, or Quatarrao . . . you know, the guys who are actually competing regularly for podiums.

Vinales doing what he does best. Dropping down the field as usual.

On reflection a little sad. If Rossi had retired in 2009 post the 9th title i don’t think anyone could have made a definite case for MM being his superior. Playing games with MM even with MM simultaneously with MM gaming him at a stage in his career when MM can constantly annihilate him in the actual races can’t be very rewarding for him.
