    An interesting read. Though the article focusses on Danny Kent, it gives an important perspective on how difficult the switch from Moto3 to Moto2 is.
    The mental part i think is the most important part for longevity in the racing scene along with talent & hard work ,one of the reasons Rossi survived so long adapting from 125 ,250 ,500 ,2 strokes,4 strokes ,990 ,800 ,Honda ,Yamaha successfully.Though the Ducati's caught him out .

    Perhaps, making him the Frankenstein (Death Race) of MotoGP wouldn't be a bad idea after all.

    Pol Espargaro's riding awesome with the KTM. This engine config suits him I think.
    Bradley still to pick up, he is picked up pace though

    pretty great race..great rides in particular by dani, lorenzo and zarco...zarco is fast becoming my new favorite rider..and was great to see jlo surprising everyone and doing so good on the ducati finally, that too coming back from 8th qualifying position...looked comfortable sliding the ducati a bit around as well...hope it continues...

    not sure what issue the factory yamahas had, tyres maybe ? tech 3 yamahas did just fine though..

    good rides by MM, dovi and folger too of course.

    Good race.

    Fantastic for the Championship. Top 4 riders within 10 points of each other. Mouth watering for fans of the sport. Among the top 4, Rossi is the only one who has finished in the points in all the races this season. Pedrosa, Marquez and Vinales have all chucked it down the road once each. Rossi leads with consistency. But finishing 10th isn't really the consistency he would be hoping for!

    Good to see Lorenzo back at the sharp end. Sad to see Yamaha suffering here so much. Even Dovi put in a good performance at a track which he dislikes. Zarco is AWESOME! Pedrosa was incredibly emotional after taking his win, shows how much he was struggling last year with the harder carcass tyres.

    Jack Miller got a 1000 euro fine for pushing Bautista after the crash

    yes, i think i saw dani shedding a tear or two at the podium presentation...

    and yes zarco is amazing..he was great in moto2 last year but tbh i didn't think he was the motogp-alien type until these few motogp debut races of his..now everyone's pretty sure he's one of the upcoming aliens...and he's not even THAT young like most upcoming aliens, which is even more impressive..
