    Dovi was superb and so was Crutchlow! Brilliant rides by both the riders. Felt sorry for Zarco. Petrucci was brilliant yet again!

    great race again, and great rides by rossi, petrucci, MM, dovi and cal...was rooting petrucci for the win though, brilliant of him to have kept on battling with someone like rossi till the end...what is up with him lately ? the last 3-4 races he's ridden first class for a satellite ducati rider..

    terrible day for dani and jorge and zarco...very silly and impatient of jlo and zarco to have changed their tyres at the slightest hint of the rain...could have just waited a couple of minutes to see if the rain was intensifying or remaining consistent, but nah, a bit of downpour in one section of the track for a minute and they went in to get their wet bikes lol..

    another exciting race...great rides by marc and folger...some good battling between dovi, vinales, rossi, petrucci....

    god knows what was the thinking of lorenzo and his team for choosing soft front and rear tyres...quite stupid tbh, despite me being in the armchair....not just one tyre soft, but both of them lol, in a racing condition (and in a power bike like ducati) totally not suited for softs by default..

    another bad race for zarco..

    Even Dovi went for a soft rear. Then there were some who went with a medium rear and suffered even more than Dovi and Lorenzo. Petrucci started on the front row and finished behind Lorenzo. Different tyres work for different folks. Zarco almost always uses a soft for the race. Though yesterday he went on the hard surprisingly.

    A fantastic race for Zarco! He started 19th and finished 9th.

    Dovi, Vinales, Rossi, Bautista and A. Espargaro really entertained in the middle of the field.

    Another DNF for Iannone on the Suzuki!

    monk, i meant to emphasize that jorge went with both tyres soft...that combination doesnt work with ducati most of the times/tracks...not sure if anyone else was with both softs.

    yes of course, petrucci suffered with the tyres as well (worse than jlo admittedly, though he showed promise for several laps), as did zarco and others too...

    Remember Australian GP 2015 (hitting an Albatross with helmet :P).
    Aggression displayed by Iannone was unmatchable by any of the racers on that day.
    He is a great talent and Ducati shouldn't have dethroned him.

    Maybe he still needs some time on understanding that Suzuki machine and with crew.
    @The Monk what is that Front end bike and rear end bike? can you enlighten on it
