Borenzo should have wore his iconic spaceman uniform because he launched himself into low Earth orbit.

He and Pedrobot just seem to fly.

Asked if he will be fit to race, Jorge replied "If you ask me now, I would say no."
Recover wisely, young man.

Maverick must have imbibed of the local psychotropic botanicals. Thinks he's on a Honda, he does.

Historically is this a boring track as far as close racing and overtaking? I've not watched any other series there. Simon mentioned not much opportunities for passing and that grid position will be critical.

First roll of the dice for the MotoGP lads. Undoubtedly Cal can pass anywhere he wants. Mr. Crafar's onboard laps are always illuminating. Yes, it is a Tilke track and in 2017 Valentino did not want to go there. Having a ride that's worth a toss may change his mind.

I wonder if Lorenzo is done for the year. What a weird mechanical fault crash. He must want to kill some Ducati techs.

Historically, only WSBK has raced there and WSBK is boring

to be fair, I rem a few entertaining WSS races. so I expect the Moto2 and Moto3 races to be good.

Want to see whats under the air box on a Ducati MotoGP bike? Some pics of Lorenzo's crashed bike at this link. Checkout the damage to the upper triples.

JLo took a boom for sure. Nasty highside again.

Field is pretty close on this track in terms of time.
We could have a proper dust up!
