    Great race! MV was lucky that Martin didn't end his race early. A great battle towards the end between him and Pecco. And it looks like the 'one more lap' helmet paid off for my man AE!!

    The new website has been a pain in the arse. After deleting the cookies yet again, I came to the conclusion that Dorna won't accept the auto-generated passwords so I made up a vastly inferior one - and it worked. Ah well!

    Well that was a first lap to forget, Pecco was incredibly lucky there. Great result for Aprilia, and some consolation for AE after last year!

    Wow, that first lap was carnage alright. Divine spirit is looking after Peco!
    I pretty much knew with peco out Aleix would have it in the bag. Good to see mav have his one or so good performance this season.

    I saw this article with a quote from Aprillia, thought it was dumb as I doubt either of their current riders would win a championship - put either MM or Fabio on a Aprillia and they would be in with a very serious chance of winning a championship.

    Dani Pedrosa is getting mentioned in despatches. Third fastest on Friday. There'll probably be a few team managers noting invidious comparisons to their riders.

    There's only a handful of riders who have ever won more GP's than him, and they're all big names. The guy is a living legend.

    agree totally. At times he absolutely blitzed the field.

    The British round is still up which was at the beginning of August, plus all the other rounds since.

    Yeah, well I'm seeing what others including the riders are saying about it being near impossible to pass with the aero creating dirty air overheating the front tyres etc
    That was a really boring race to watch. The most exciting part for me was Dani hunting down a podium position. Other than that, pretty much a yawnfest.
    The Dani thing does make me ask if there is actually any aliens left other than MM who is on what the undisputed worst bike in the field?
    I see MM used moving to his brothers team as leverage to force Honda to hire European engineers and so on. Good on him, but how long will it take them to fix the Honda? It sure took Dall'Igna a fair old while to turn the ducati into the winning machine it is today.

    In todays coverage they said MM has said again that he is with Honda till the end of 24. Id say he is. I reckon he just doesnt want to leave them while they are struggling, as they didnt leave him when he was.

    As mentioned, yes he is staying with Honda - but as I said, how long will it take to turn it around? A year is possible, but not likely imo
    They need to kick a lot of engineers to the curb, and they should be kicking test rider bradl to the curb too.
    Ever since Dani left, the Honda has been getting worse and worse.
    I still reckon had Dani gone to Yamaha 5 years ago, he would of been in with a very, very good chance of winning the championship.
