It has had a sh it front for a while but Marquez has been able to hold it on a lost front.
Or push harder knowing he can.
He can't now.
A bit of bike, a bit of tyre and a bit of shoulder/arm strength it seems to me sitting on my couch watching.
The Duke out braking him into a corner hasn't happened too often regardless and it did there, multiple times.

Agreed. Marc isn't quite himself yet so I am judging it by the two riders theat have been riding it for a while now. Taka and mini marc are having their worse season on the Honda. It seems the honda is getting worse every year. The tire certainly is a contributing factor.

As for Fabio, it seems the yamaha struggles when the temperature is high.

He looks to have healed the humeral fracture fully, he has certainly tested it out more than a few times now.

I have thought for years his shoulder was what was most likely to limit his career. Perhaps he can improve it by off season training with a fully healed humerus, but I don't think the bike is great either. Whether it is the bike and tires, or his shoulder, he is not even trying to ride the kind of banzai single lap for which he is justly famous.

If he and the bike can be a little better next year, he has to be the favorite for the title. He needs to be smart and take what he can get by not over riding and he will walk away a 9 time champion next year.

That was rather splendid...Speed, smooth, consistency, composure. Phenomenal ride from Pecco.

Great effort from what is not a 100% Marc or Honda - " I was a little bit on the limit "

Congrats to Basta too. Really good weekend for him
