He seems to be a little too aggressive on passes....so lets stick him at the back of the grid where he will pass almost everybody.

imported_ICEMAN Old man shows how it is done in a straight up battle, he must really love being back on Michelins! Iannone is turning into my favorite racer to watch... its more a matter of when he will do something than if!

Did anybody else notice a somewhat peculiar cornering style that Vinales has? Seemed like he come in really hot into the corner and then mid-corner tucks/leans more for the exit. Not very smooth, but obviously works for him.

Good to see the breaking of the ice between MM and 46 too. Good for the sport.

bsess 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.

Old Baldy The old MASTER does it again! What a race! Breaking MM like that, causing MM to make a crucial mistake and winning comfortably at the end....and coming from a poor start and 8th place....amazing stuff from the old guy!

And for Rossi to reach over like that and shake MM's hand again shows why he's so loved by so many. A very cool gesture, which will hopefully start the process of easing the antagonism between them.

Yep, clearly a has-been.

and Iannone....torpedoing JL in yet ANOTHER incident. Well, what can you say? Luckily for JL, the impact was less than it could have been, seeing he was dropping back so quickly.

I see MM as the favorite for tomorrow with Dani, Iannone and the Factory Yamahas fighting for the podium provided the latter two can successfully resolve the braking issues they're having on the circuit's revised layout. Vinales remains a dark horse consideration as well provided he finds a way to pull his finger out when is comes to his race starts. Maybe he should follow the ritualistic procedural example of what his future team mate and qualifying partner stands and does with the butt end his leathers just prior to every race.
I'd be surprised if the young twat doesn't win it, because the Yamahas don't like the tires on this configuration, but I'm actually rooting for the Bot. Would like to see him win again.
And MM will fall off.
