Brilliqant ride again from Dovi...Tactical perfection.  Great work from Vinales and Rossi, they did everything they could. Cal was very close... really bad luck for Marquez. Not his fault at all. But that's racing.

Some impressive results down the order too...Redding, Rabat, Pol Esp...

On that note, WTF happened to Pol...down one cog too many?

nothing more to add..

AD04 is for real but MM93 is still the man to beat, IMHO.

Not one honest to goodness attempt by Crutchlow to at least have a go for the podium and in front of all that home support as well. But I'm sure will hear something from Crutchlow about why he didn't/couldn't have a go which can be translated into something like "if it wasn't for the riders in front of me I would've won the race" type nonsence.

@Challenged, most of us saw a pretty decent race with a rejuvenated Dovi hunting down and passing the best, Marquez was unlucky and it was good to see Jorge just 3.5secs. back. You however only saw reason to criticise Cal for an excellent fourth. 

Its clear they let the old man lead the race to honor his 300 grand prix..... kudos for that... at least the old man had happy time while being let to lead...

In his prime never ever Rossi would have lost this race. hard to accept but we are getting old together. needs tracks he has an advantage stylewise or in motivation assen and maybe Misano next round. very good race, but lacks a bit. intresting to know if it was fuel consumption, tyre wear or avoiding another le mans, maybe a bit of all three. 

Different bikes, tires, this & that.  Rossi played it smart.  He probably could've pushed and ended up in the gravel, and then you'd be saying, "Rossi should have played it safe and limited damage".
