May be a good opportunity for Zarco to win in Germany. And why not a convincing come back for MM?

Yes it looks interesting up the sharp end of the field as Quarteraro is not running away with it after his penalty. As for a Marquez win I don't think it's on the cards just yet

The Hondas look in a better shape but I wonder how the grid will look like next year with eight Ducati's of all colors…
Fabio's penalty was well deserved but I hope his leather suit maker has learn something from this crazy story!

Il ne faut jamais sous-estimer un lion blessé! Quartararo keeps his championship position. I wonder what really happened to Zarco?

Well I don't think anyone saw that result coming, great result for MM and thoroughly deserved, his bravery when it started to rain paid off. Quartararo used his head to add to his points tally and it's so good to the mixture of manufacturers at the pointy end, I really wanted to see Espargaro grab a podium on the Aprilia but I'll settle for a KTM. With the grid so tight I can't wait for Assen.

Amazing to see Marc win again, after so much hardship, first Honda victory since his last win 581 days ago apparently. He lead every lap over the start finish line.
Very brave pulling away from the field in the mixed conditions.

That is impressive from Marquez, is this a one off or a sign of things to come? We'll see, it seems he has lost some of that invincibility he had. But no reason why he can't still be a contender. Form is temporary, class is permanent

The more we go the more I think VR will stop at the end of this '21 season. Hopefully he'll remain around with his academy. What a great Champion.

Indeed. Nothing should take away from his great legacy. It was thanks to Vale I got into bike racing.

I too think he will hang up his helmet at the end of the year, shame the last few years haven’t been kind to him, but he will always be a great legend and a great character too

Oops, MM high siding during FP2, he's been lucky. Ducati take the risk to keep the riders in the box and dont send them under the heavy rain. Very wise imo.

New suspensions settings it seems. What is said is that he asked for the same settings used by FQ. Works fine…

If it was that simple why haven't Yamaha tried it before instead of watching him tool round at the back of the field, very strange.

Yes very strange indeed but may be each rider went his way at the beginning of the season. Its a real hassle and pain in the neck to fix the suspensions for race use. One degree of steering angle (equivalent of castor of a car) and you're in another dimension. Not forgetting that the wheelbase is variable…

Great qualifying by Maverick, but Marquez really bought back to down to earth after his win in Germany. His crash in FP2 must have really affected him

Good to see the Doctor a bit nearer the front
