Strange race. Made interesting by the late rain. I and probably everyone else was surprised that the leaders came into pit.

The rain at the end robbed us of what was probably going to be a decent battle however it threw up some real interesting propositions. Well done to Binder. He just went for it. Balls the size of Volkswagen’s.

That overtake from Quartararo was pretty special. Marquez looked like he had hit some form again, whether it was tyre choice or not remains to be seen.

I don't think you can swap bikes for the same set up once it is declared wet. The tires must be different if I remember correctly. Plus knowing there was a chance of rain the bike would have been set up with rain tires and steel brakes.

Yeah kudos to Binder.
He deserved the win by staying upright whilst staying out on slicks.
Disappointed MM dropped it on the wets but very encouraged to see him up the front again prior to the bike swap.
Good race.
Fabio is looking good.
Far more consistent and measured than he was previously.
How much can be attributed to working with a psychologist I don't know, but he is improved.

Said it before, Fabs was great two seasons back, less consistent last year because he was on the new and improved chassis. This year IIRC he has the 2019 chassis that works for him. Had he used the 2019 chassis last year, the championship would have been his.

Great ride on Sunday by me. I ripped it up in mixed conditions while Keshav was banging away at his keyboard, wishing he knew how to ride a motorbike.
I wonder what that feels like to have no motorbike and no life

How was your go cart racing this week mate? Or was there no racing because your competitors are all back in primary school?
