    The stress on Zarco is due to the shit bike, not Zarco's lack of talent, they gave him a truck to race with. I'm certain if he could take VR46's spot in 2021, it would be a widely different outcome than in KTM.
    agreed 100% with all this

    pertux seems willing to push the ducati over its limits a little more than dovi. i noticed he leans more and open the throttle sooner in the corners than dovi.....but doovi is still aiming the championnship.not danillo. i was looking at both of them when they were riding 4-5...danillo was trying to bring dovi to up its pace . you can see he's trying to help dovisioso.

    Are KTM back in Moto 2?, great showing by Brad Binder, he fought bloody hard for his place. The second KTM was in the mix till he binned it late.

    KTM has had a pretty miserable season so far, their frame does not seem to work at all well with the Triump engine.
    Let´s hope they have found some improvements, Aki is after all if not a close friend than at least a guy I know personally.
    Baldassari´s move in the race was a bit ambitious to say the least, no wonder Alex was a bit peeved at him.
    But a racing incident imo, if you see a space you take it if you want to win. This time it just ended badly.

    if I recall well, they have a new swingarm, and should have a new frame soon. But it seems they've done something, even Bezz got into the top 10 while being nowhere all season.
    Still missing a lot because if Balda/AM incident didn't happen, I don't think he'd be on the podium.

    yeah Brad seemed to think they may have made some progress.

    You guys are cruel though, no mention of Remy Gardner getting his first win.
    & it was Pole conversion as well, no luck involved.
    He has been riding the wheels off the bike lately & finally kept them planted rubber side down for the whole race.

    i'm not sure i agree with baldassari's move on alex marquez ;while, marquez is still 111 to luthi's 117,but baldassari crashes more often than it's turn lately,his pass on marquez wasn't pure genious ,really. remy gardner has a bright futur in GP, he,s gonna be very good with an added season or 2 in moto 2. xavier vierge got VERY lucky when he fell down to not being run over when he was laying in the middle of the track.....wheeew.

    Yeah, bloody shame for that boy, he's got the talent and will power, he will win one sooner or later.

    Lorenzo's pass on Vinales was the most conservative of the 3 passes taking place in that corner at that time. Looking at the aerial footage, MM made a long lunge at Dovi and Rossi's was braver still, probably would have run deep into that corner.

    Lorenzo's pass likely would have worked out fine if Dovi hadn't been there, Lorenzo was well alongside Vinales going in but I think Dovi checked up to try and cut under MM and it caught Lorenzo out, too much brake and bam..

    Not even going to get into Cal's ridiculous pass attempt later...

    You're right about Suzuki, they have the right approach for an underdog, lots of positive attitude, not a lot of stress and nurturing talent.. Total opposite of KTM.
    About Zarco, he needs to start beating his team mate or at least running with him. The bike is not as bad as it is with him on it. It isn't all the bike. Zarco needs to adapt to the bike he is riding. When he is the fastest guy on a KTM we can start blaming the bike. Until then he needs to step it up. Otherwise, his speed on the Tech 3 Yamaha will be just a fluke.

    That's how it is on a factory bike - big bucks and high expectation from the team not being fulfilled and the pressure cranks up. In the Tech 3 team he was an unexpectedly successful underdog so a different environment.......stressed? At times you see the poor guy in the garage and he has a brow so furrowed a farmer could plant a row of potatoes in it!

    Can't say he's not trying because he's certainly crashing a lot, but it seems to be always the same front end wash out when he pushes.......if Pol wasn't getting better results the pressure would be less but he was brought in to be 'team leader', he's either got to adapt or hope that there's an improved bike on the way that suits him better.

    KTM seem just a ruthless as most of the other factories - they'll ditch him if he doesn't come up to expectations.
