    What is interesting is the first 7 in the 58's ,so I guess if no one knocks the old boy off in the first couple of laps will they have the stamina of the Spanish El verdugo

    Ok so now that practice has been analysed.


    My prediction is
    VR _ when he says it feels great to ride at full pace, you know he is confident & when MM trolls him for Q2 you know that MM sees that threat.
    MM, he will be right there throwing it all at VR.
    FQ, if he can keep it together for the whole race in a furious 5 way battle for the lead.
    JM, only if he stays on & doesn't take out VR.
    Rins, if he can keep it together for the whole race

    Then my second scenario will be ...........................................
    2015(16) RSV4 RR Ascari Black 201HP

    Can’t chalk that one up to ability, haven’t seen the tires fall off a bike that bad since the 2 stroke era.

    Rins was on MM's rear wheel all race, clearly had better mid corner speed, the real advantage MM had was in straight line speed and drive off the corners. Rins' move was perfectly executed.

    I missed the ferry to Ireland due to just not leaving enough time to get there. Had to wait almost 8 hours in Fishguard. Not an experience I'd recommend 🥺

    If it was intentional, the next to last lap, go wide in the final turn head fake by Rins was brilliant. Hard to tell though, Marquez was all wheel spin and drift coming out of the last turn. Marc Marquez does not get worked like that very often. 2 races in a row where he got a last turn punch in the face. I like this trend.

    This trend only occurs on tracks that suit the other bikes over the Honda. When the track suits the Honda they dont see which way he went

    This was what I saw as well.
    Great race, and well done for Rins.

    Actually, Rins told Simon that he almost made a hugely embarrassing mistake -- he thought the next to last lap was the final lap, but it did work out being brilliant.
    Beware the festive dog; drive soothingly over the grease-mud, for therein lies the skid demon.

    Yep, thank god for the non-Honda tracks, otherwise no one would get a sniff of his exhaust.

    Rins! What a race and move!

    Sucks for Dovi - that guy has some bad luck.

    Crap move by Zarco.

    Alternatively, you could say there is a trend of Marquez only winning at tracks that suit the Honda... ;-)

    He's clearly the best at the moment, so no need for excuses when he loses.

    No excuse from Marc or anyone else as far as I can see. He is the constant, whatever track it is it's either Marc vs a Yam or Marc vs a Suzuki or Marc vs a Ducati.
