Oh ffs Binder!

He was looking solid.
I was chewing my nails off, it was so good to see him coming from behind and then BAM!!

I have watched most of the practices and PE44 has been in the gravel many times this weekend.  BB33 not once that I saw.  It really seems to me that Pol must be feeling the pressure of a teammate who can put in fast last laps and is good in a race.  Looking forward to the race.

And so it is clear that I am just another fan who doesn't know anything.  BB33 crashes and PE44 on the podium.

Damn BB33 rode well, maybe a bit too well. What a pity, but so he learns.

What a race!

Pol really survived well under pressure and deserved the podium, despite me wanting the Yammie on there.

Those Yamahas are on rails. Except Rossi's. >:D

Quartarara was very unlucky "stepping" over the line. :(

I like BB because he is calculated while ruthless in execution. He certainly wasnt that today. Was like a raging bull. Think he lost his composure.  Hope he will return to his old self and forget about today. Wasnt pretty to watch.

Jettison them! Best thing I ever did only second to telling Telkom to faarkoff.  Just subscribe to MotoGP and get the full Monty with lots of extra vids, interviews, insights, archive of old races etc etc.

Who on earth would have thought thatís a good idea. I can imagine a soccer dude being as pissed off.

Nobody would be happy.

Amazing.

I see Miller was eliminated by one of Quartararo's tear off's (sucked into his air intake). And now Bagnaia believes his accident was possibly caused by a tear off.

https://www.crash.net/motogp/news/944945/1/bagnaia-seeks-answers-strange-crash-costs-him-victory

I've often watched all the guys pulling them off and dumping them on the grid and thought to myself, that thing must be slippery to ride onto or over. I presume the riders also pull them off anywhere on the circuit and I saw a tech talk with Simon Crafar recently where they have at least 4 of them on at the beginning of a race. Once dumped they could literally end up anywhere on the circuit.

A bit unlucky to be put out of a GP because of a little piece of plastic.

In his post race interview he basically admits as much. Combined with not taking the extra 16kg of fuel into account.
He also noted that he took T11 faster than even in quali.... so a bit of red mist.

You have to remember BB33 is a rookie, I am sure he is doing WAY better than expected.

Because he won a race in his rookie season we seem to think he has it all sorted out, he is still learning with every outing.

He has the race speed for sure, but lack the experience...........he will get there.

DB I think the pig of a bike he is on makes him having to ride way over the limits.
