I'm surprised manufacturers are still putting money into engine development with the future being electric.

Well, what a cracking restart, really enjoyed that one. I didn't watch the practice, where the hell has Martin come from? As for that new but of magicry they've put on the Suzuki it would appear it's more than capable of keeping pace with the Ducs now but better in the corners, will be interesting to see it on a longer straight. Tbh, I was a bit surprised how the Suzi started losing time toward the end I would have thought the Ducs tyres would have given it more trouble in comparison.

The montage to Rossi at the beginning was ab brill 😀

Hi Glen,

Sorry I got caught up in some other stuff, but your point on the susuki's.
That hole shot or whatever it's called was a big game changer.
I'm still not sure Rins can go back to back though

Sad to see rossi doing worse than last seasons middle field running. MM came back to soon and is not fully fit putting himself and other riders in danger. Nice to see a mix of manufacturers in the running. Suzuki may be lacking straight line speed but it's better in the corners than both ducati and yamaha.

Hi Chris

No I'm as English as it gets, my uncle used to drive f2 for lotus and I've loved the bikes for ages.
Love the best riders not the bikes though Fogarty, Pedrosa, stoner, HA! Gardner as well.
Loving Acosta (a new Rossi maybe?) Sounds real wierd to say that.
So many young guns though, deffinately the start of a new generation we are seeing and I think it's great.
(if we could please let zarco win the championship this year things would be perfect, he may be French, but he's nuts and I love watching him ride)

Really

Nice to see an Aussie in the mix, instead of the Italians and Spanish. Also Olivero

You must be pleased with Remy G, a future GP star like his dad?

Oh please don't you start on Miller....

They're all saying down here his front end washed out on a tear off and without that he would have won.

Absolute toffee!!

Spot on Jon. Rat boy up to his old tricks again, very dangerous

Great win, another in the mix, felt for Mir, that Suzuki lacks straight line speed, he should have won that last year prior to the restart, good points though and the young lad was third

Strange one the fence, guess itís to catch flying bikes in a similar scenario to last year, canít be good enough if somebody runs off into it though, and like you say, today it has created a blind spot after the corner

Good bit of racing though and Miler crashes out again!

Hi Chris,

Savadori has said he did not see the pedrosa incident and knew nothing about it until he hit pedrosa's bike.
I'm pretty sure those airbags and that fence blocked his eyesight.

Congrats to Jorge though

As for Rat boy, if he keeps riding like that either he or another rider will get seriously hurt

Let's see what happens next weekend.

Best

Jon

Still not seen a picture of it yet!

On another note, Suzi Perry in a nice little short dress looks hot

Hi Chris,

They've just shown it from another camera angle and it looks like they may have air bags or tyres in front of the fence. I'm not a rider, but the positioning of it just looks dangerous

Flat out straight that Jon, nothing prior to that crash, since then they have had the large air bags in place. A fence can never be right, will have to have a look at that!
