It was so heartwarming hearing his fans at Cheste cheering his rivals fall giving him the Championship.

Zero respect for NT, best team, bike, the lot. He hid from MOTO2 because he knew he would get swallowed and could not be guaranteed an easy ride to a MOTOGP Factory ride.

A World Champion who would probably not make the top 10 in BSB if he did not have the best bike.

I won't be as harsh as the critic above, but certainly I don't feel the best man won the championship. Zarco was on inferior equipment, and had he not been stripped on his win in Catalunya then he could be champ.

We could list a hundred what ifs about Terol and Zarco, but in the end, as with most long term championships, the best prevailed.

Nico has been through injures, mechanic fails and a rival trying to push him out of the track in Montmelo (a well deserved penalty in my opinion). Of course, he had the best equipment, and also the best team, but Zarco was simply too irregular to be champion, and cracked under pressure.

Vinales impressed me far more than the French.
