Like my prediction MM win again here...

What will say when VR push Dani wide.. will any body complain that..?

Brilliant race from Marquez. He obviously wants that championship again. Great ride from Pedrosa to come through the field too. Good to see Lorenzo keeping it upright, even if he lost the lead. Gutsy effort from Rossi with his injury. Disspointing result for Dovi. That was NOT what he needed at this point. C'est la vie.

Amazing ride from Kallio. Pol finished in front eventually, but Bradders has to find a way to ride that bike better urgently, or you have to really ask yourself what is going on there.

Nice to see the Aprilia finish a race too. Well done to Aleix.

It's pity if no one critic what VR do to Pedrosa... 

Classic Lorenzo sometimes the bridesmaid but never the bride ehhh! Those pesky Honda's!! There will be more excuses at Motegi!! It will be someone else's fault! Ducati must be thinking wow!! Iannone would have had a few more wins this year on the Ducati.

Great Mika.. he knows the bike better than the ktm team riders..

Damn, Kallio's tires gave up when ten laps were remaining. Still good and very respectable result as they didn't have enough dry track time to ensure optimal race setup for the new chassis component!!

for the first half of the race it looked like his pace is enough for fighting positions inside top 8.

Few seconds behind Pol after dropping the speed for last two laps and bringing the worn tyre bike into finish line with a good position!!

And now the most important part! If the KTM bosses have and balls they will show the door for british bald carrot as soon as possible!! Timesheet doesn't lie, BS was of the pace losing 20sec for his team mates meaning about 1 sec/lap!!

Very good see the Aprilia can compete,  Espagaro doing a good thing for Aprilia development.  

Dani - come on, win a couple of races! Overall a good race

Very monumental!! Never seize to amaze that 46.... he still manage to get his usual position on an injured leg....... fully fit he can get 4 or 5.... with broken leg he can also get the result..... fantastic rider.... truly The GOAT

I was betting on Dani's victory in the race but it didn't pan out. A race winnin pace in the last 1/3 of the race but he lost the chance in the beginning/midpoint after remaining too long behind Vinales.

still a solid job what makes him the fast and secure 2nd rider for HRC also for future. Very good top speed combined with a clockwork level consistency is what separates HRC riders from Satellite guys. Today was one prime example from the occasional events. Cal is usually very fast for one or few quick laps. In race environment he usually strougles to find clockwork level consistency for whole races allthough riding on a good level. Well today was one of those other events when he put the bike on the gravel, but luckily that happens more seldom than few years ago.
