Catalunya GP

I haven't seen a championship so up in the air in a long time. No one seems to be able to take charge and there are 5 riders who can win it.

Last year The Ducati was the best bike on the grid and when Lorenzo signed with Ducati , I thought he had the title in his pocket . This year the Ducati is still arguably the best bike on the grid yet if Lorenzo has any pressure put upon him as in getting passed , poor qualifying ect he comes apart at the seams . Espargro and Aprilia are improving by leaps and bounds, Rossi great as always , Marquez is getting the screws by Honda as Honda wont make a bike to suit his unique style (increases budget considerably)Vinales great rider but IMHO not the next Rossi.
The Golden child of 2017 IMHO is .... Zarco... He is giving the Aliens a run for there money on a satellite Yamaha at every venue .
Lastly, when are the sanctioning bodies going to drop fuel rationing ???? no point in it other than costing every team a lot of money .

All 3 races were entertaining.....Good on Dovi !!! Bad day for Yamaha boys, and Marquez on the ground more than usual. Tight points race...Assen next !

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

DVR did not record the race for me. Will have to check to make sure it catches the next round.

Paul, Ducati has many problems on entry and middle of the corner. Last year they were closer to the top performers but still not the top bike. This year the performance is more consistent than Honda and especially Yamaha(huge fluctuations), but of a lower top level.
In the hands of Stoner or Marc(wet dream of Ducati), sure the bike can win the championship.

I thought it was interesting how badly Jorge fell apart once he got back in traffic.

Zarco...win it or bin it! He is certainly giving it a go.

Chuck, Jorge started dropping like a stone after his initial burst and then came back at the later part of the race.
Combination of tyre performance+-confidence.

Zarco has been exceptional indeed.
