Hypez99 not at all ! They are fast and I am not knocking that BUT they are not really good racers! When it comes to rubbing bodywork and really mixing it out on the track they are not interested, all they really want is a clear track in front and no pressure from anybody behind. Marquez is a racer! He will give as good as he gets but JL,DP and CC I don't think so.

Very Close times. I miss Casey, but it is better for MotoGP hes retired.
Now we have close times and no one have to catch Casey incl. JLo.
Thats, I suppose, want to say the yellows

The trouble with rubbing bodywork is,how far do you take it?
How far till you get slammed as being dangerous?
It all depends on who is dishing it out and who is on the recieving end!
Lets not forget that over zealous riding will incur penalty points under the new ruling.So you may find that riders are less likely to get involved with that kind of thing.
Go and ask any racer if they prefer to battle,or have a clear track ahead of them.I guarantee they would prefer a clear track.

Cal is a legend and what about Dovi? Wouldn't expect him any closer to Rossi even if he was on a factory Yamaha but he is only doing his 3rd race on a Ducati.

Jambop ? Not racers????

Some racers can really lift themselves when being pressed by another rider but only because they seem to need that stimulation to give there best.

Other riders are able to go their hardest without that and are already going as hard as they can so dont appear to be such good "racers" but only to those spectators who do not understand the sport.

Rossi is a great example of someone who needs a second rider on the track to go quickly and probably Stoner is a good example of those who don't.
