I had forgotten about him walking out on his team in 2012. Shame that he has let his career self destruct, there’s no doubt he had it in him to win a title or two if he focused more on the job

And deliberately blowing up your engine is nothing, I read today that John Kosicnsy did it in 93 I think? Apologies for the bad spelling btw

Still, we might never know the full story

WHAT. A. RACE. (MotoGp Austria today.) I will leave it at that so as not to spoil it for those who may not have seen it yet. Worth watching, particularly the last few laps.
Weather played its part.

An unbelievable race in those last few laps with Binder taking a great risk on slicks, unfortunately I had to miss most of the MotoGP races this weekend as I was at my good old friend (Norman Ricketts) memorial service. However I did manage to see those last few laps live on my mobile and I'm sure that Norm was looking down on me and smiling.
I have just been watching the complete program from the weekend and was pleased to see Sam Lowes actually stay on and finish up the sharp end in Moto2, roll on Silverstone

Did you see Binder's post race interview? Loosely paraphrased; " the first lap wasn't too bad, but then the tyres cooled down and I had no grip, then the carbon brakes cooled and I had no brakes."

Great win.

Yamaha has now confirmed Cal Crutchlow will join the factory squad in Vinales’ place for the British GP.
Crutchlow was already due to race at Silverstone with SRT in place of Franco Morbidelli, who is still recovering from a knee operation in June.
Yamaha test rider Crutchlow will also be reunited with his test team crew chief Silvano Galbusera, who was brought in to replace Esteban Garcia on Vinales’ side of the garage from the Catalan GP.
"It’s a privilege to be a part of Yamaha and to do what originally was supposed to be three races for Sepang Racing, but the plans have changed," said Crutchlow.

With Morbidelli still out injured, SRT will call on its Moto2 rider Jake Dixon to take the Italian’s place for Silverstone aboard the ‘A-spec’ M1.
Britain’s Dixon made his grand prix debut in the Moto2 class at Silverstone in 2017 as a replacement rider at Intact GP, with the former British Superbike rider and race winner making his full-time Moto2 debut in 2019.

Personally I can't see either rider making any impact on the results, but you never know and I wish them both the very best of luck.

Yup, Fabio just had too much for the rest of them today.
Rins with a desperately needed podium and second, with Aleish hanging on for KTM's first podium ahead of Miller who just missed out on getting 3 rd place done.

Marquez did a Hamilton, but did not get a red flag.

Thanks to ITV for showing it live, even if I had to watch it on record later due to watching the BTCC. Meant, like with the French GP, I could enjoy watching the race without knowing who won

Fabio is really looking good for the title on the strength of that ride. I know there is still quite a way to go, but I feel only an act of god can prevent taking the title now.

Great ride from Aleix on that Aprillia to get them their first podium, especially after that great battle with Miller. Maverick must be rubbing his hands with glee after seeing that result

Marquez's incident with Martin looked a bit of a revenge move for what Martin did at Stowe, at least initially, but looking at the replay, he just misjudged the switchback. His brother Alex looked great in the race

Really painful to see Rossi slip back after qualifying 8th and getting high as 6th in the race, before dropping back to not even finishing in the points. Unless he had a problem with his bike, that is really worrying to see. Bagnaia also seemed to be in trouble with his Ducati after slipping back

Rossi had tyre problems..... his being on the pace this weekend was all done with the hard rear tyre and everything revolved around using that for the race.
Unfortunately by race time the temperatures were so low compared to practice and qualy that the hard tyre could not be used as it would not have been able to get it "into the window".... thus Rossi ended up having to use a medium rear tyre. This was shot after a few laps and in terms of pace Rossi lost over 4 seconds per lap from the start / early laps pace to that of the final laps.
That is the official word....

Great race from Quartararo again. He seems to have grown in maturity this year and is using his brain. Hard to beat....plus he no longer needs to risk finishes for wins, and can relax to ensure he finishes with decent points every race, then its job done.
