MotoGP Aragon - don't spoil here

So... Anyone interested?

How about the poor performance of the Yams?

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

I wonder if it is REALLY the bike, or might there be internal personnel power plays similar to the Jeremy Burgess era when he was 'let go' by VR46. We know the bike started the season reasonably well, with some good rides by both Rossi and Vinales, BUT it still lacked legs against the Hondas and Dovi. Most of the development this year seems to be in the aero department; an area Yamaha still (apparently) struggles with. So this, added to their original shortcomings has seen them fall further behind.

Why I label 'personnel' as the possible reason is because astute management given free reign will generally arrest minor problems and have them rectified week by week and race by race. Most media I have seen (MCN UK primarily) shows both Rossi and Vinales continually requesting mods and being ignored in much the same way as had Lorenzo. I don't think we'll be seeing much improvement this year, but Rossi will, on his own merits, restore some credibility at both Assen and Philip Island. The off-season could see some startling management changes.

definitely something going on. Yesterday Rossi went out during qualifying with 4 minutes to go and rode around without trying to improve his position. Then today he improves 10 positions at the end. It is mind blowing that Yamaha would not give the greatest of all time the best available equipment.

The greatest of all time does have the best equipment. MM93 is on a winning bike.

Really great racing right up to the last few laps. And can we give some respect to the Suzukis? Lacking the top speed, but in the fight and close.

That moment when the Maniac took the point was brilliant !
