Yep, how can he blame the bike for rear ending someone
It was embarrassing, you could almost hear his brain whirring, stare at the bike, no that'll look silly so I'll half heartedly gesticulate at the other rider...

I do hope Bez can do the double today, he didn't seem that confident in his post race.

As for the Ducati, how they can still be the fastest on the straight by some way is just crazy though KTM seem to be catching up.

Edit, did you see Bez blast past Bag on that corner, I could have sworn he was going wide, thats a lesson in late braking I didnt think was possible, but it is the sprint, perhaps Bag didn't want to push it.

You don't get to win six Moto GP world championships without a huge amount of talent but I think the bike was then the best out there and had been tailored to suit him as nobody else could match his success. Things moved on though and rival manufacturers caught up , Ducati always had the performance but only Casey stoner could ride it but now they have improved it's handling and made all that power more user friendly. Always been a Ducati fan and Audi have helped refine them and bring reliability they once lacked but for me they've lost a little of their character that made me love them.

Marc, I'll never like him after the Rossi incedent but as of late hes had me shouting at the screen

Super competitive but always been a dirty rat for me

Reckless is another word. I agree, he is involved in a lot of crashes. He was claiming he could only find the limit of the bike by crashing it out, fair point if he is not taking others out but he is crashing out all the time and some of the dives up the inside just show a desperate man for me

I am certain that the Honda has been developed for MM because Mir is a good rider and is getting nothing out of it. Like mentioned, must be an expensive game for Honda!

I am having my doubts now about if he will ever win a championship again myself, Hondaís demise with MM and Yamahaís straight 4. I can only see KTM or Aprillia been a serious challenge to Ducati for a a while now. Makes you wonder if Japanese manufacturers have stagnated whilst Ducati and Audi have developed something very special in the V4. Bearing in mind Honda have run a V4 for a long time!

Personally, NO. If he had the straight line power he still wouldn't have the ability to late brake like Bagnaia, maybe he could learn and I'm being a bit harsh. I'm fairly certain he wouldn't think twice of trying though even if he knew he wasn't there yet, that's not drive, that's recklessness.

On a different note, Zarco, I wish he'd get his timing to push those tires right, could be a exciting dark horse if he does.

MM must be the costliest rider any team has ever employed, not just the salary he commands but the repair bills must be horrendous. Thing if you were a team boss with bikes capable of winning would you gamble on him if the opportunity to take him on came your way ?

Not been on the forum for a while, still been watching the GP though and somethings really irritating me greatly and it ends with Marquez on both counts. 1 of them with expectations and skill beyond his equipment but he just won't compromise.

Marc, I'll never like him after the Rossi incedent but as of late hes had me shouting at the screen. So his bike won't do what he wants it to do and he's more capable than the bike. Normally, falling off would serve as a warning but no, not even the threat of losing his sight is enough for his ego. So, if you have a rider that won't tone it down, with a bike that will go down the track in his hands because..err...they don't know why and a garage that lets him do it surely someone running the race should be looking at it. The amount of time he falls, causes craches and the potential for a serious injury is simply getting ridiculous. Who's protecting the other riders, it's shocking. It's not as if it's just the 1 incedent in the race, your watching it thinking not again, and even when it calmed down before he lost the front end I said to the Mrs he won't finish anyway, he'll bin it, he can't help himself.
Think it was Marc that could have T boned someone in this race on the corner when he went in too hot, with commentators saying it's happens getting caught up in the other bikes air streams...it probably does..but in his case.

I know he's a champion, I know he's a winner by nature but he has to say in his head , I'll do 6th as my bikes not good enough (unless something external happens to the better bikes).

Anyhoo. Miller, I so wish he could get it together on that bike, you see glimpses but he's not there and Zarco, very impressed, but I'm loving B&M @ 46, aren't they doing well

As for the bikes, wierd, now the Ducatis are turning can anyone stop them, always had the extra grunt for years over rivals. The F1 connection, I get it and if KTM get that power difference sorted they could verly likely dominate, looking very good.
We've got a couple of nice little twisty tracks coming up, S&E, should be very interesting...if I can block MM out of my head or he gets injured before the sprint ...only joking.

Read something today which I found interesting. All about the aero dynamics according to KTM, Honda and Yamaha, apparently Suzuki could not afford to compete so the last year they let the engineers play around with the bikes and add wings etc. everybody is saying if they had the right aerodynamics they would be untouchable. Yamaha talking about chucking out because they cannot afford to compete, Honda in development with the F1 teams, KTM In F1 Red bull pocket and have some funding

Hears me thinking itís V4 power, I can smell some bull**** somewhere, our bikes are not at the races or we donít have the tech to compete?

Weather was perfect again and some quick times by all. Some race the senior TT and another lap record. How long before somebody hits an average of 140mph lol

If you look back through the history honda, Yamaha ect have had their times of dominance but unlike those Ducati have a policy of sharing their data with any teams using their bikes which maybe why there are so many of them on the grid.

Dunlop means business. Straight off the start line, head on the tank, flat out!

Some good racing with the top 3 as expected all in the mix. I wish Dean Harrison would get a win, riding well as usual

Hicky wins super stock. Saw him at Donnington a few weeks ago at BSB, must be down to the luck I wished him, saying that the last time I did that his chain came off in the first race
