In all fairness to MLav, it's not that impressive when 3/4 of the grid (and every factory bike bar 1) have to start from pitlane after you leave the grid. However his lap time on friday was mighty impressive so swings and roundabouts :)

It's hard for fans to have a clue just how good the riders are and how hard they try in MotoGP. For one the cameras always focus on the Factory boys, and fans get so little involved with the sport in reality that they totally fail to comprehend just how much difference there is in machine performance through the field that the rules permit. So the ignorant fanbase blithely decide that Marquez is the only guy out there with serious talent. You only have to read the endless drivel on here for abundant proof of that sort of mentality.
It's also clear that The MotoGP fanbase doesn't care about this and without fans who demand all entrants get a fair chance to race that'll never change.
All the non factory teams and riders should IMO abdicate from MotoGP pronto - you're being shafted and wasting your careers here. If fans are too stupid to fight for you then they don't deserve you, and Dorna have no series without you yet they don't look after you either.
