I like how he suddenly appeared in the SIC garage all happy and backslapping.

So I’m headed to Jerez on Tuesday. Yeah, that’s right- two days after the race.

Neil was talking about the whole chassis being soft, because of the move to Michelins. That's why he thought that Bradl was testing the spar reinforcements.

gee, guess who might get Rossi's seat now when he retires. Or will they need it? Probably not with Petronas money

Is Márquez drinking before races?

Yeah, that was weird.

Looks like another mechanical. Maybe the Honda isn't fixed?

Wow. Moto2 was mega cray. Alex Marquez & co. should get points for a marvelous show. Helicopter camera work was wizard. Big fun. Trust that injured pilots will be ok.

Neil Spalding's Twitter had this pic of the frenzy at the Alex Marquez garage :


Presenter :
"Who could have forecast this? We head to the next round with a four-way tie at the top of the MotoGP Championship standings."

RINS: dang, son.

Takeaways:

Márquez is a machine on certain days. Tons of talent, beat the crap out of the field

Quartararo is for real. It’s a shame his bike broke. Someone get that kid a factory bike, although not a Yamaha

Morbidelli will figure it out, too. The Petronas squad is very talented

Viñales finally showed a little pace from the beginning

Rins is great. Stop comparing him to Schwantz. Rins is smooth. Schwantz was not what anyone could call smooth.

Rossi needs to qualify better.

Dovi probably feels like he got a gift.

Petrucci was pissed at Miller’s comments and rode hard. Although I like his story, he’s not a consistent race winner IMHO

Lorenzo was 5 seconds behind Bradl, at a track he loves. He’ll win races on the Honda, but he’s nowhere near that, at the moment.

I sympathize with the British fans, as I’m a Cubs fan. Crutchlow will occasionally win races, but he’s not a championship rider. I think, if he wants a championship, he’ll have to try it in WSB.

Miller is no better, or worse, than Petrucci. Ducati need to look for a better #2 to Dovi.

Aprilia is at the same place they were, last year. They need a big change, or they’ll pull out and go back to WSB.

KTM is in no man’s land. They have to ditch WP and go Öhlins. This may never happen, but the teams are pointing the finger at it.

Tito Rabat was on track.

Boring race, but got glimpses of young talent. The future looks fun.

That’s the 2nd week in a row he’s just weirdly fallen off a bike. It’s super funny, but weird.
