He appears to have done nothing wrong in that one IMO.

Pol did exactly what he did last week. Honda could be rethinking that contract tbh.

As far as the incident goes. It was so close to being catastrophic but thankfully it wasn’t. Probably the luckiest day Rossi has ever had. Bloody thankful bikes missed each other and people by 10th or 100ths.

Sure, I didn’t think he was last week either. Just saying after dismissing his comment last week as misfit said it does keep happening.

He is a hot head. In the end he rode raggedly both times and contributed to his own demise.

Simon Crafar questioned his racecraft in both instances. There may be something to it.

Shaping up to be an exceptional season. Horrible crash aside, it was a great race. Had a feeling Dovi would dependably win again. Wondering what options (if any) he has for 21. He's done a great job of out-riding the Ducati's handling limitations, but it's got to be extra challenging for a guy his age. Would love to see what he could do on the KTM.

Miller did a great job. Originally assumed the soft front was a bad choice but apparently he'd used up his allocation of mediums. I really got a better feel for what he's like in the interview. He's growing on me.

For me the star of the race was Mir. Totally jumped out of my seat to cheer when he made that pass. Good stuff! And that . . . from a 17th(I think) place on the grid.

Binder really has the shit. Will be keeping an eye on him.

Yamahas - who knows?

Greatly admire Marquez . . . but honestly, the racing has been better without him.

Crutchlow's looking like The Ancient Mariner.

Whatever your opinions about Viñales and Rossi may be, one thing for sure is that they both have testicles made of titanium!

Hard to image how Mav and Rossi must have felt in that instant. They had no idea about the crash behind them and were racing as normal... only to suddenly see a bike fly by centimetres from their head. Had Rossi been traveling a tenth faster or Vinales just a tad slower would have resulted in disaster.

Wonder how the manufacturer and sponsors will react if at all.
