Unfortunately those who enjoy motogp have to except the fact that until another 1 in a million rider like MM comes along he will be supreme ruler & all the other riders will only gain results on his sort comings at any particular track. You can tell that type of insanely talented rider because there instantly podium runners from day one entering motogp, they don't need to learn the craft because they own the craft. Quartararo looks to have that promise, it's just a shame the M1 at the moment doesn't have the HP needed to help him along. Don't get me wrong Dovi, VR, etc can obtain podiums when all there stars aline but only when all the stars aline, MM achieves podiums every race unless he crashes out & you know there will be races his bike setup sucks, he feels under the weather, etc yet he is always there that is the difference & there is no other rider like that at the moment in motogp.

Its fitting Marc took Stoner's ride at Honda after his retirement, they both have the ability to ride a bike when their team partners were 10 seconds behind.

Yeah it looks like Dovi got the worst of it, his bike almost went over Fabio's, it bucked him off and he tumbled several times before finally coming to a stop. His bike caught fire too, he was finally able to stand but he was definitely hurting. Hopefully he didn't break anything. Fabio was a little hobbled but seemed ok.
What a finish though! Now, is it just me or did it seem like MM purposely pushed Rins out off the track when rins tried to overtake him on the outside?

Feel very sorry for Dovi. Got to love him for what he did at Austria 2 weeks ago.

That's just racing. It could be argued Marquez took his normal line. As the passing rider, it was Rins responsibility to avoid the collision and he did.That was a ballsy attempt on Rins' part considering the speed. I was rooting for him. Never thought he would pull it out last corner of the last lap. I'd say Marquez must be pissed losing the last 2 races in the last corner of the last lap. He wasn't because the championship is in the bag. He admitted his tires were toast at the end..

Rins got smart and learned from Dovi how to beat MM.

Aside from tire wear, MM said he went a bit wide in last corner, had to let go off the gas, Rins has a faster speed through the last corner and all of those variables helped him win. Either way Rins is an awesome rider!

Too bad Suzaaki does not make a good street Gixxer to compete with others.
