Remarkable session tbh..... 3rd overall, ahead of Pol Espargaro his teamate, and within 2/10 of Vinales at the top of the times.

Amusing to see MM's lean angle increasing every time he went out..... from 50 degrees then 52/53, then 55/56 before his final full tilt run.

He would have to be happy with that for a return session. No sign of the threatened rain

Looks like he should be up there already, although whether he can reassert his old dominance remains to be seen

Very impressive, he's surely not human.

Thanks, probably like you I keep trying to avoid them nowadays! I'm catching you up!
I'd be surprised if MM doesn't push himself as always, just hope he stays in one piece.

I've not seen or heard anything of the potential return of Dovi in recent days, he was rumoured to testing here for Apriia with a ride from mid season, maybe finance is a stumbling block.

The test with Aprillia is still going ahead AFAIK, but management have denied he’s returning to race this year

Well, MM is back without doubt, and having watched his final flying lap in P2 he was back to his old tricks. Trying to get straight into Q2 he was flying, on time topping pace, when he had a huge moment, looked like he was gone, but pulled it back up and finished the lap. It was still good enough to put him straight into Q2 and even with the half lose was good enough for 6th.

Got to say impressive from Naka as well.... had a huge crash early in the session, flew through the air at 120+Mph, went to the medical centre, got cleared and ran back got on the spare bike and with an injured shoulder popped it into 10th place and a free ride to Q2 also.

They are another breed these guys.

Yep, and I complain about about a knee problem in the garden!
Btw the commentators were chatting about Dovi's testing at Jerez, evidently he's already been providing feedback to the team and is due to test again. Ignoring the admittedly praiseworthy comments about MM for a moment, this weekend's race looks to be a real ding dong with strong competition from all the top contenders. Vinales look comfortably quick but then so did Miller on the Ducati despite the arm pump operation a few days ago coupled with Espagaro on the Aprilia and the KTM's. The nature of the circuit probably favours the best handling machine rather than the quickest, Oliveira for the double?
