Moto GP 2019

Well the season has started and by the looks of qualification it will be "interesting" !
1 Maverick VIÑALES
2 Andrea DOVIZIOSO
3 Marc MARQUEZ
However I think that Marquez can still win, one thing is for sure he will never give up and will push to the limit and doesn't seem to have any fear of crashing as proved many times in practice !

No doubt that MM will drive the wheels off the Honda as always but the whole grid has tightened up this year possibly with the exception of Yamaha, Vinales proving the exception to the rule in gaining pole for the race. I rather think that unless Vinales can somehow blast away and open up a decent gap, he will swamped by the Hondas and Ducatis on the first run down the main straight. Very brave stuff from Cal Crutchlow, I just hope he doesn't have another tumble and complicate his ankle injury. So many quick riders separated by less than 1 sec, it will be a very interesting race.

What a brilliant race battling right to the line and a fantastic result for Cal Crutchlow, the guy is such a fighter

Well although I live in Spain a good part of the year I am not a particular MM fan, however he tried his best and almost won in his usual "on the limit" riding on not the best and certainly not the fastest bike. I don't know what Lorenzo is thinking right now ?
Well done Cal for an amazing come back for a well deserved 3rd, and of course the old man who got it together on race day as he normally does.

I presume the mercurial Lorenzo must have been suffering from head games after his tumbles over the weekend, for whatever reason he quite obviously didn't want to take part in the race at all judging by his demeanour on the grid.
The combination of Dovy against MM is always fireworks to watch; the cool, calm Dovy against the incredible riding talent of Marquez is so exciting and as you say Gordon, the old man performed as usual as he always does on Sundays. I didn't see the post race stuff but what the heck happened with Vinales?

A classic 'Marques - Dovisioso in Quatar' final. With the bonus that the '19 Ducati looks drawdroppingly beautifull.
Lot's of kudo's for Crutchlow, who looked in quite a bit of pain after the race, and also for Rins, who must be frustrated by being flown by on the straights every time.

Cal was touched by someone and their peg went into his bottom, his ankle as fine.

My tasty little 7-1 on Dovi cheered me up no end.

Managed to watch the highlights last night. Great race, as was the Moto3!

For anyone that is able to get Quest Channel in the U.K., they are showing all the races as highlights. This time it was 1800 last night (Monday).......

The post race chat was good for a chuckle. ‘Don’t mean to be rude but I’ve got a dead bum’. Haha bless him

Good race, nice to have MotoGP back on the menu.

Dovi and Ducati may have the win taken away from them for running illegal winglets.

If FIM are consistent with their aero bans, I fear that Ducati may be in trouble!

I would be surprised as they had clearance before that it was legal I think. The winglet may be banned going forward if it is providing aero benefit. But a retro ban, I doubt it.
