Masterful performance again by Rossi. Scrappy but mature performance by MM who was outclassed by the Yamaha's performance. I have little doubt Marquez would have won today had the track temps not been so elevated as compared to Saturday which, as evidenced on several occasions so far this year, adversely impacts both the Honda's strengths (braking and handling through low speed turns) and weaknesses (acceleration, rear grip, front end stability under braking that degrades with each 2-3 degree increase in track temperature.
It was really good to see Rossi and Marquez shake hands in Parc Ferme and their warm exchange during the post race presser that brought a big applause.
