Yeah Espargaro was brilliant in his comeback.... and to take two places on the final chicane on the final lap was impressive. Shame Fabio had 'an off day', but although he deserves the title this year, this result today will make it a bit more interesting. Quartararo also now carries forward a long lap penalty to be served at Silverstone next race.

Good also to see Bezzecchi takes a maiden podium for himself and VR46 team.

Yep, Bezzecchi last lap was a master piece too. I dont see the long lap as a huge penalty at Silverstone, depending on when it applies during the race.



As to the comments of Yamaha refering to Nakagami's previous incidents I feel strange that many ask for more severity but only for other riders… This does not seem consistent IMO.

Second that, what a comeback ride and that double overtake was breathtaking!

Great win by Bagnaia, if only he could keep it on the asphalt more often. Really out of character race from Fabio with two mistakes.

i dont see a need to move him to Pramac .. not a real upgrade, more like a sidegrade

penalty has to be taken in 3 laps from showing it during the race .. and usually it's in the first lap.

To be fair, the second crash was not really his mistake. It seems in the first crash he severed connections to the traction control rendering it intermittent (or maybe just none functioning). He first came in to retire, but the team hoping for rain, told him to go back out so if it did rain they could change bikes. Unfortunately he soon fell foul of the troubles with the traction control resulting in the highside exit.

Yes, it did seem a bit of a strange crash, so that all makes sense and I take back what I said. His first incident though was his fault, although I do agree with him that his punishment for the next race, as he hurt his chances more than Espagaro

Miller gets another penalty. Is he just attracting trouble or is he being singled out harshly a bit too much?

I do think they need to keep a close eye on the riding standards, but need to be careful they don't punish every incident like most other series do.

Yes Gordon but I think its more likely coaching/ managing. Seems he could help both Ducati and Pecco to find the perfect settings following rider's requirements and not only applying what the computer says.

I can't see Casey coming back to riding, but can see him in a coaching/mentor role. No reason for him not to pass on lessons he's learned when he was riding, there's so much people can learn from him

A little table resuming the situation in MotoGP.

{Please, look the table below}

(Explanation:

Just to put things in context, I call "Easy" to be able to overcome the gap to leader without much difficulty (approx >10% probability). I call "Hard" when it is difficult to overcome that gap (approx <10%, but >1%). Finally, I call "Out" when it is unlikely to overcome that gap (approx <1%).
)

BIG PICTURE:

Not big news here: QUA and AESP are the only one with a "Easy" path to the title. BAG, BAS and ZAR are still in the fight but have a hard task to do. MIL, BBIN, etc, are out of the title in any reasonable sense.

FINE DETAILS: THINGS TO ACHIEVE/AVOID IN AUSTRIA

There are some fine details, though, consisting in how those riders' status can evolve in the next race. I have called it "Need to do" in the table. It means the points goal they have as a goal to achieve or avoid.

For example:
  • If AESP loses 5 points to QUA, his status will change to "Hard". Obviously, it is a target to avoid specially.
  • BAG is in a crossroad: he can pass to "Easy" contender or he can even pushed "Out" of the title. To achieve "Easy" status he will need to gain 22 points on QUA(!), basically he would have to win again and Fabio to have a catastrophic race. It is not easy to happen. To get out of the title, there has to be the opposite scenario: he loses 18 points to QUA (interestingly, this has happened THREE times in this season...).
  • BAS and ZAR can easily get "Out" of the championship if they lose a few points to QUA. Basically they have to end the race before Fabio.
  • MIL and BBIN are in a curious "zombie" situation: they are "Out" but could convert to "Hard" if they outscore QUA for a good margin. I think MIL's case is thinkable, but I don't see BBIN's case happening, it needs Fabio having a catastrophic race AND Brad getting in the podium.
In my subjective opinion, after Austria's race we could have only one or two "Easy" candidates and perhaps as few as three total candidates (from 5 now). On the other hand, if Ducati rules in Spielberg, we could end with SIX candidates!

(Sorry for this long post.)
