Damn... Morbido needs a full factory bike and he'd have a better chance at fighting off these Suzuki.

Good for Maverick for finishing the race, but WTF goes on with that guy?! He just destroys every FP and QP and then drops like a rock in the races. If it wasn't for all the crashers Maverick wouldn't be in the Top 10.

Blah! Being a VR fan has been tough and this was a real bummer - dude had a podium for sure. Don't know if he was pushing thinking he could catch Fabio or just cold/worn front. Sucks. The Mir train looks like the real deal and time to get on board. And Mav is back to being who Mav really is, a self-doubting head case when it's time to race.

Argh! So heartbreaking to see Vale going down there. He looked so forlorn there and didn’t want to leave his bike behind when they tried to get him on the scooter back to the paddocks.

Ducati on Ducati crime has got to stop! Poor Dovi, last year JLo and now Petrucci take him out in the first lap.

It was great to see Quartararo regain his form and looks like we’re set up for Quartararo vs Mir for the Championship, two second year guys, I love it. Classic matchup, Quartararo is faster and Mir is more consistent.

this is a year for the youngsters for sure.

Fab Quart looked super shaky those last few laps. I bet those tires were made to drop off dramatically the last 5 laps.

Super bummed about Rossi. Huge chance to make it 200 podiums/350 races. Yamaha in general just didnt have a good sunday, even though they won the race. Zook really deserves all of the praise for their tire management. If the race were 5 laps longer, i have no doubt it would've been a suzuki one/two.

Fun race. I get the feeling this championship is going to come down to a winner take all on the last race between the top 3 riders. I hope we can keep this party going. Onto LeMans.

Gutted for Rossi. Mama mia.

Happy for Suzuki.

Fabio did the bounce back win and the points leader again.
Mir rocks. Rins seems back to it too.
Suzuki double podium... nice

Dovi... still not totally out of the C'ship but the way it is going fat chance comes to mind. Miller did well to hang on.

Not a great day for KTM... I expected more.

Petronas leading the team championship... my goodness has a factory supported team ever done that??

Repsol out of the top 10 of the Team C'ship... has that ever happened??

2020 continues to be something crazy.

On to France.. will rain shake shit up??

Joe Roberts with a Top 5 finish!

He played around with J. Navarro for 4th quite a bit, but tires dropped off toward the end.

I didn't like this race because the riders I like crashed out and Mir didn't have enough time to overtake quat.

I only like races that go exactly the way I want !

Agreed.. Joe did well. Looked really happy in his garage.

Now if they would make a shirt like his water bottle he can take podiums.

Got too much of his namesake on his mind. Pumps himself up with a Top Gun dogfight scenario at the starting line, but as the lights go out he's riiight at the part where he says ..... I'M GONNA HIT THE BRAKES AND HE'LL FLY RIGHT BY ME!!!

More like Cougar and less like Maverick. He’s holding on too tight. He’s lost his edge.
