    More details about the Sam Lowes / Aprilia situation. Sam sure got the shit end of the stick with this one.

    Marc looks like the one to beat tomorrow; should be an interesting race!

    Yes it's definitely his to lose.
    He was fast on all tyres so they have a crucial decision to make.

    Some good races last night, MIr dominated again in Moto 3 and Morbidelli again in Moto 2. I was hoping Luthi and Oli could get past Marquez, but it wasn't to be, still, some exciting racing there.

    Moto GP last corner WOW! Dovi did well to beat Marquez to the line there! A fantastic duel between those two.

    As for Aprilia, it seems they were talking to everyone well before they announced their dumping of Sam. It has left a few riders not respecting the brand which is surprising, Cal didn't hold back in what he thought! If Redding can't deliver, he will be out pretty quick you'd imagine......

    While very exciting, and last corner on last lap, blah blah blah.... shouldn't Marq be penalized for unnecessary aggressive riding or something? That move of his was reckless and inches away from disaster for both of them....

    That was the Marq we saw a few years ago who did anything for a win..... totally not needed, Dovi beat him and that was just a last ditch attempt to try and crash dovi out.

    That said I am super happy Dovi pulled off the win.

    If it was any other lap (or corner) than the last, it would have been investigated. Mike Web (Race Direction) has said the last corner is expected to have last ditch passing efforts and that is why Valentino was/is never pinged for his outlandish manouvres (punting other riders into the gravel more than once). If they start now it will make the racing boring and fans will turn off. As Dovi said, he expected it and left the door open for him to dive in and run wide so he could get a better run to the line - it worked!

    yeah, but there is a difference between a last ditch passing effort and what mark did IMO..... but I am not race direction....

    I saw it as aggressive but not dangerous.
