Brutal race.

Fabio was fabulous
Maverick could have been worse.
Rossi hard work but worth it.

On to Brno

Got to give it Valentino for that ride, in that heat at age 41. A demonstration of why MV will likely remain a nearly man as well, he just can't pass anyone who can vaguely dispute him for a place.

MM was right to be worried about FQ, which I believe prompted dominance games which have now cost him twice, a flawless race in total control again, a fully fit MM would have had his work cut out against FQ on a Yamaha on this circuit, perhaps only Yamaha engine problems can stop FQ this year now.

The problem was MV's, nothing wrong with how Rossi defended his position, MV is just not very good at passing moves even with a significant pace advantage.

True, however he did get the job done without punting Rossi off the track on the final corner.

Some can never live it down.

Rossi did well in a brutal race today. It must be painful for you.

Quartararo.... darned refreshing to see such a performance from such a nice fella. I'd love to see him take home the championship. That would certainly boost his confidence and make for a great fight with M. Marquez for the future.
Not impressed by Vinales.
Bagnaia was on to a great result before his bike gave up.

Dovi has rarely been stellar in qualifying.

Cool race, nice to see Fabio win two running. Yamaha better make sure his engines stay together. Once again, Mav just can’t get the job done. If you want to be world champion you can’t be tentative like that. I’m beginning to agree with those who think he won’t ever be champion. Sorry for the Dovi fans but Mav joins him in the category of can’t win when it counts.

Vinales overtakes Rossi on track and beats him. Everybody says Rossi great. Vinales bad.

If Rossi didn't make a mistake, Vinales would've been third. Vinales deserved his 2nd place finish, but he wasn't good enough to overtake Rossi without having the door opened for him after a mistake.

To be fair, Rossi moved into 2nd place after a mistake by Vinales.

IMO, hell of a race by Fabio, Valentina, and Maverick. They got the job done to in really harsh conditions... especially Fabio.

I guess I was expecting the young, fit and happy with his situation in the team Mav to dispense with his vintage teammate in a quicker and more decisive manner. He showed after the "pass" he clearly had the pace to pull away from vr and had he pulled the pass off earlier he may have made it more interesting at the front.

I really want to like Maverick, I really do.
