I believe no one would have guessed that today’s winner would be Pedrosa.
Dani had till now a very bad season, lots of problems with the bike, the difficulties to co-exist with a champion like Marquez, but today he made a perfect race.
The good tire choice, no wings ( I guess it was the only bike on the grid without them ), a perfect ride and beautiful overtakes.
He was aggressive, starving for a podium today and he deserved to win.
The pass on VR46 was just perfect, well done Dani!
Hopefully would not be a one off, but a full coming back in the fight for the podium.
VR46 was as always there, as always pushing for the podium and rode as a champion like only he can.
The overtake on Lorenzo was beautiful, aggressive but clean.
Unfortunately for him Dani today was on another planet, but again he managed to recover 7 points on Marquez.
I doubt he will win the championship, but a close fight is very good for the MotoGP and for us at home watching it.
Lorenzo is back on the podium, a good third place without much story apart that today was a sunny day…
Marquez wasn’t fast enough to enjoy the fight for the podium and thank God he used his brain and kept the 4th position without taking the risk of loosing it all with a crash.
The rest of the grid? none really stood out today.
I’m not surprised that Vinales and the Suzuki didn’t win or weren’t in the fight but I’m very surprised by the lack of performance from Ducati, I really don’t understand it.
Next race is in 14 days at Aragon (Spain), who will win? Is it finally time for Dovizioso?
Are we there yet???
