Dropping very big bikes on the floor too often though.

Certainly a good chance. All the conjecture about Zarco's Tech 3 squad not suffering the same difficulties as the factory team in unravelling the mysteries of the Magneti Marelli ecm is overlooking the skills and knowledge of Guy Coulon the Tech 3 head wrench, with a long history of turning out extremely well-sorted bikes on race day.
To win at Le mans, Zarco will still have to deal with MM93, which seems to be getting ever more difficult....

It was "sods law" that Zarco fell off in his home GP, at least he wasn't "assisted" !
Marquez seems to be unstoppable and love him or hate him he is brilliant once he gets in the lead, Rossi did well but I don't know what to say about Lorenzo as it seems once he gets overtaken he almost "gives up"

Well, Jorge being beaten soundly by both the satellite Ducatis must make his position at Ducati at best dubious, especially will Miller seemingly in favour at the moment. (Lorenzo currently 30 points behind the next Ducati)

Some of those slow motion shots of MM93 elbowing the bike upright are just amazing, I remember Colin Edwards rescuing the machine(can't the track/race) but for Marquez it seems it's just a natural reflex action.

Just watch the rest, thats what I do, cant stand the little sod.

And to be honest as soon as he gets in front and pulls away I just turn off.

The support classes are usually far better to watch anyway.

Did you think the same when Lorenzo did the same for a few seasons when he was on the Yamaha ?
That's a rather blinkered view of probably one of the few "really" talented riders out there at the moment, also have you ever been to a MotoGP or only watched it on the box ?
Everybody to there own but it not unusual for people to knock the top guys in any sport because they keep winning.
I live in Spain 5/6 months of the year and don't particularly "love" Marquez but you can't ignore him

Marquez’s attitude irritates me at times, but you can’t deny you are watching a superhuman in action

Totally agree especially his stupid attitude the other week, why didn't he get some sort of a penalty in the next race ?

To be honest I watch MotoGP to see great, close racing, and yes I felt exactly the same when Lorenzo was winning, more so in fact. Regularly turned off races.

if you want to watch the best guy on the best bike win routinely fair enough.

I have better things to do with my time. Had enough of that with F1 for 15 years

Lulu in F1 is incredibly irritating in a number of ways outside of the cockpit but there's no denying the skill is there.
