Smith kind of got fucked by the slow riders... even a moment off the throttle to see what up is a death blow.

Damn... Borenzo going out like that.

Pedrobot woke up and remembered that he's a motorcycle racer.

Vale finding some of that Sunday magic again.

Nice to see Pedrobot back in Top 5 form.
Suzuki top finishing inline 4 with Iannone bringing it back to the podium.
Top Yamaha by Valentino and he could have taken Petrux with one more lap.

That turned into a damn good race.

MM gave it 100% and so it seems did most.
Having the 2 Suzuki's playing near the front was fun and the moment where the Manic took a momentary lead was epic shit!!

Great job by Aleix on the Ape.

The intensity of the race at the front the last few laps is what makes MotoGP so great. Love it.

Jorge reminded that MM dont play:

"....."From the outside, it looked like I entered too fast, went wide, leaned too much on the dirty part of the track and that's why I crashed," said Lorenzo.....

.....But I watched Marc going to the inside very aggressively and not making the corner, because you saw he finished the corner [over the outside kerb] on the green
....."

He has a point. I did not realize how far "off the track" MM went.

Unexpected aggression? "dilly dilly"

Eh, he had a choice to lose a few positions or go off track, that's racing.

He instead decided to whack the throttle open and bin it.

Marquez didn't break Lorenzo's foot, the ground did.
