Cost Mir the race did that

Iím guessing ViŮales just plain **** himself. Bike over his head last week, jumping off the bike this week, brake failure. Not looking good for Yamaha either, engines, not enough top end, no wonder they are struggling. When the non factory bikes are doing well they should know they have problems

And once again, especially WSB and BSB the Ducati V4 is just like cheating for me, so high revving and the straight line speed just blows everything else out of the water although the new Honda seems to be catching up, seems to be

Yeah, felt for Mir but you have to ask why they didn't have a tyre in reserve JIC. I know races aren't often split but even so, it certainly helped Miller in part 2.

I'm still trying to decide if Vinales went over to his bike and put his head in his hands out of a, shock, or B frustration the bike wasn't still o.k...inspite of being on fire at the time

Agree with the blind crests, odd how these things aren't already in place in this day and age.

Well, just watched the highlights from yesterday. Brake failure and jumping off a bike at 130mph must be a hell of a shocker. Last time I saw that it was Eugene Laverty in WSP

Disappointed for Mir he deserved that win

Air bags in place too. Did a proper job on saving ViŮales bike until it set on fire

Iím guessing thatís the next area for review, straights that have the potential to run over corners if the worst happens. Thought the same afterwards, thought they would have some kind of protection. Quite a dangerous track

The blind summits are another one too as the Moto 2 crash. Maybe a flashing sign above the track on blind summits or a least a flag man on them?

all the vr46 babies were calling for Masia to be banned for the season for dumping the oil on the track,(absolute stupid crap)

Nuff said then, unbelievable, who would have thought, oil on a motorcycle racing track

Not been on for a while.

The crash last week, why aren't there airbags/tires across those long run offs before right hand corners, even half way along them would minimise the risk. Unsighting the corner slightly would be a small price to pay.

Really enjoying the races at the mo, so glad that MM is side lined for a while, had become a tad stale for me.

Vinales jumping off

Hi Chris,

I think this weekend kinda proved the point I was trying to make, all the vr46 babies were calling for Masia to be banned for the season for dumping the oil on the track,(absolute stupid crap), Martin loses a moto2 win by going green by inches thus promoting a vr46 baby for the win and polis espargero is at least 4ft of track on the final lap and gets no penalty at all?????

And clicky, whoever had the great idea to put the 2 most despised riders in the same garage is an absolute advertising genius, polis and rat boy 2021, I'm gonna love it........
Too much politics, let's race!!

rossi is taking fabios seat at pertronas,fabio taking rossis seat at factory Yamaha with vinales. as for zarcos pit lane start, thats down to dorna. the Spanish Moto gp mafia..both espargaro brothers get away scot free from their pissing about.alex holding up Petrucci on the racing line looking for a tow. pol again whinging about zarco taking him out, while yet he went wide then came back on the racing line without looking..pol espagaros actions after last weeks red flag was terrible. moaning about race being stopped while he was in the lead.. I really don't know why hrc Honda gave him a factory seat next to mm93 next season..the bloke is a nightmare..

I would not have thought that would influence a decision like that or would hope not. Fast part of the course and major rider error.

Im guessing after that Jon the VR46 gang will be the stuff of legend. Reckon he will be done this year after that, i will be very surprised if he does not quit

Hi Chris

I definitely do get your point of view, but "fault" for last weekend's crash is questionable imo, you can argue either way

There's been a lot of very poor and obvious driver error incidents in all classes this year that have caused crashes, incidents and dnf's

The only time punishments seems to be dished out is when the vr46 gang pipe up. The Mcfee podium was because they were causing a stink about track limits and that ultimately backfired on vieti

Race control come across as being influenced by vr46 at the moment

Not sure Jon myself

Maybe itís to set the benchmark, Iím not sure?

One thing for sure, for a rider of that quality that was an horrendous error which could have killed two riders?

There are risks with motorsport no doubt, thatís what makes it exciting but on reflection that was just reckless for me, massive error

Very sad imo

Zarco starting from the pits is just moto gp bowing down to what's becoming the VR46 mafia

Does the Vali legend really want this to be his legacy?

Seriously, talk about luck and fate. You donít walk away from those!

One weekend, two horrendous crashes. Crazy!

Same venue, 2019. Great bit of racing
