    yes, i think that that year was when the electronics became a lot more sophisticated. stoner didn't like it, he didn't use launch control and got really good starts without it. i think it was all the electronics that finally made him quit.

    cheers

    Yamaha and Honda are sounding like an old record now "we'll try some new settings and hopefully that'll help us in the race" https://www.crash.net/motogp/news/10...itiveness-cota
    it must be soul destroying for all involved coming last (or third to last with a 12 million euro rider).

    Interesting sprint yesterday - also news that possibly Pramac are going Yamahahaha. Not sure Martin is going to be too keen on that.

    Yeah, that was entertaining. Looks like Vinales has been replaced by his body double, BatMav, given he passed more riders in one race than he usually manages in a season!

    The GP24 may have more significant issues with tyres than anyone is letting on. Pecco is certainly very frustrated.

    I read it as COTA throwing up another anomaly in it's history of anomalous results.

    Just have to wait and see.

    Great first 1/2 just what we needed to shut the complainers up

    Not a MAV fan but pleased for him best race and weekend I have ever seen from him
    Enea coming on form
    Pecco looks lost
    Martin just plug away lad all is not lost

    Acosta fuck me, beat the KTM's, where is the other Gas gas = 16th, its all him.
    NOBODY expected him to be this good. I like his riding and his attitude.

    Aprilia and Gasgas 1st and 2nd that'll rattle the Ducati camp

    Yeah, but he's not riding a Ducati!

    It's worth watching the press conference, which is free on the MotoGP website.

    I've never seen a rider able to carry the rear into a corner like that at turn it on a dime like Pedro, insane skills. He's essentially riding it like Brad and Miller do, just wayyyy better.

    Pedrosa is set to do a wildcard soon so let's say Acosta gets to follow him for a bit and learns how to pick up up out of the corners like him (assuming he can emulate it). That's a scary prospect for the opposition.

    Fuck yeah Maverick

    I didnt see anything explaining what happened with MM? I guess he was just pushing a little too hard, but that front went WAY early..

    Brake problem. Having to pump the lever to get pressure.

    Already had that problem when he decided to go for the lead. Thought it may clear when in front.

    As if. Self inflicted damage.

    Just watched it was very interesting thanks
    Thinking MV actually said a but too much about his new technique in the race.
    He seemed very relaxed and comunicative more then I have ever seen.
    Nice how Enea dodged the disrespected question LOL
    I also like how honest Acosta is with himself no excuses just facts.

    So gald they are free now I no longer have a subscription
