Great first wins for Brad Binder and KTM.

Well done to both!

"Ride it like you stole it!", I rather suspected that Brad Binder's arrival at KTM combined with them concentrating their efforts in the top class might bring about some good results but this was pretty sensational even with MM's absence. What did surprise me that his tyres lasted given his early pace but it's great to see an exciting talent like Binder making it through the ranks, I did think that the exuberance may have been a little tamed from Moto2 but clearly KTM have given him his head. Just wondering if this is perhaps a record? a win in only his 3rd race. Pity about his team mate getting taken out or was he just blind sided, either way KTM mean business.

Binder really has announced his arrival, let’s see if he can keep up this performance till the end

The Zarco/Espagaro incident seemed just that, a racing incident. Riders are going to go for gaps like that always.

Dovi and Ducati off the pace, let’s hope they find the right set up this weekend

Holy ****, what a crash. Vinales and Rossi are sooo lucky they weren't hit by that debris.

I think that Dovi had to prove a point, I wonder what he will do next year ? and yes two nasty crashes today that could have been a lot lot worse and one will no doubt be looked into regarding track safety for future MotoGP meetings. However motor racing has always been dangerous (although a lot safer now) and will always be as speeds increase year on year.

Yep, very nasty crash - the potential consequences really don't bear thinking about but a thoroughly deserved win for Dovi and some great rides from the Suzuki boys, shame about Rins spill. This is turning out to be quite a championship with some real dark horses coming to the fore, can't wait for next weekend's instalment

Well done to Dovi, some great racing.

Can't believe how Pol Espargoro threw a tantrum and ended up taking himself out.

Another good race by Brad Binder 17th to 4th.

Rossi very lucky to avoid Morbidelli's bike.

I think Mr Zarco should have some very difficult questions to answer.
He has totally cut Morbidelli's line and then jumped on the brakes, not acceptable behaviour!

Video of Zarco's work and the subsequent carnage here:

This championship is turning into a great thriller. Easily the most exciting top level championship (F1, MotoGP, SBK, WEC) this year.

...I concur that the absence of Mr. Márquez has of course opened the door wide open for other talent, but surely nobody else than himself can be blamed for that, would you not agree...?

Agreed!

Sad not to have him around but undeniably far more interesting now.

It certainly is as I think most of us were expecting Quartararo to run away with it like Marquez used to, although I think he might start getting his act together after last weekends result.

I wonder if Marquez will ride at all this year ? I had heard via a Spanish friend that he severally damaged his already broken arm training at Motocrossing ! It could be a load of b******s of course but I know he does like riding his dirt bike between races.
He put this picture on his site that shows that it was more than a slight break !
