Marquez not only has the skill, but seems to have all the luck too! What a shame Lorenzo's mistake destroyed the race. Would love to see the Aprillia crash on the first lap, TV coverage didn't show enough of it. Quartararo, already looking like a champion of the future.

Just wonder why Quest are putting on the highlights quite late

Agreed that Marquez would have had a fight on his hands if the race had played out with all the contenders, however no doubt he would have tried one of his "do or die" moves as it was the his home race, but in the event he didn't need to.
I am lucky that having BT Sport I can stream it live straight into the TV down here without any dodgy VPNs

Bowling ball was about right but I think the front just washed out under braking on a cold front tyre, pretty rookie error.
And what a rodeo ride for McPhee! So unlucky to not get a podium, he clearly had the pace and grip until his bit of track was taken away with that faller in front.

I have no idea how McPhee stayed on! It looked like he was on his way to the stands, massive high side saved, not often you see that!

He certainly held on for sheer life, those few points could be crucial come season's end. We will probably look back on that moment then

Well it looks like Lorenzo is out for this weekend at Assen and possibly the next round after crashing in free practice and sustaining a fractured vertebra (how long before Honda give him his P45 ?) Vinales was quickest in Free practice 2 with Quartararo 2nd, Marquez 7th Rossi 9th. So hopefully we might just see a new winner this weekend ?
The weather is looking good for this compared with the rain in other years.

Yet another Lorenzo season interrupted by injury. Surely his career is not going to go on that much longer? Let's face it, it's unlikely he'll ever win a title again on recent form

Well it looks interesting for tomorrow with Quartararo on pole Vinales 2nd and Rins 3rd. Marquez in 4th might well "try" and use his head and settle for a place but he is Spanish after all !!!!

Got to hand it to Marquez to finish 2nd at a track where Yamaha were top dogs was pretty good ! I had hopes for Quartararo but he should have a win this year.
1st Maverick Viñales
2nd Marc Marquez
3rd Fabio Quartararo

Well there's not a lot can be said for Marquez who once again showed that he is head and shoulders above the rest of the field in the German MotGP
Good result for Vinales who road a sensible race and of course Cal Crutchlow who could have finished second but decided after a couple of rear tyre issues to settle for the finish.
1st Mark Marquez
2nd Maverick Vinales
3rd Cal Crutchlow

The series is going into the summer break so I might just see Marquez in one of the local bars and clubs as he has a holiday home in Mojacar.

As you say Gordon, Marc M is a cut above the rest. I honestly thought that rins was in with a chance until he fell but fair do's to Cal for backing off and settling for a podium place.
Marc M's brother finished a country mile ahead in Moto 2 with a superb demonstration of his smooth riding once he had taken the lead early on and the Moto 3 was exciting as usual, they never fail to entertain!

I think we need a miracle if the MotoGP domination of Marquez is going to be broken for the next few seasons. It seems no one has an answer for him, at least for a whole season

I suppose that you could liken Mark Marquez to The Mercedes Team for the last few years (well not quite) However he is a dam sight more exciting to watch !!!
I can't quite fathom his mind set as he will push in practice until he falls off to find the limit.
I do follow F1 but I normally go to sleep in most of the races, whereas I am often on the edge of the sofa watching the bikes.

so hope it's there
