*Spoilers* Moto GP LeMans

FP1 underway
Be good to see if the Yammies can do okay here.

Keen to see how Quarto goes.

A few struggling with the curb on T14/ Lorenzo went down there and Marquez and Vinales both had decent moments.

Rossi FP1 didn't go so well losing his chain....

So exciting to watch the last 5 mins of FP1

Quarto is so strong.

KTM looked good.

Marquez looked the best on an old rear tire.

The half rain really spiced things up.
Amazing gamble by Rossi really shook up the opposition in The first quali.
Crashlow didn’t crash.
Great mix of brands and rider results bodes well for a mystery result come race day if the weather is suspect. If it is dry they can say sayonara to MM and squabble over the rest of the positions.

What a great race.

Marquez so dominant every race this year. The only consistent rider is Marquez. Very Rossiesc when he was in his prime.

3 Ducatis in the top 4.

Quarto will be winning races when it all comes together. Remarkably fast and hasn't crashed at all on a Moto GP bike since getting on one.

KTM doing well in 6th, adding weight to my conspiracy theory Marquez will switch the KTM in a few years

I feel like Yamaha are on the cusp of coming good. Seem to almost have their traction sorted. Just need a few more ponies.

The doctor come through with the goods again. 1st Yammie by a country mile. Vinales crashed, not his fault. But screwing your starts and having to fight the pack is part of making your own luck.

Aw, come on @Glenno .

You reckon Honda would let him go? I reckon Marc will be like the Schumacher/Ferrari combination: Long term exorbitant pay cheque, and long term winner. I can't see why he would want to move. He has developed a very close HRC family, and I think he would do a Doohan and finish his career with Honda. (I recognise the MM is much younger than Doohan at his prime)

Whilst on the topic of KTM, I wonder if Zarco might be having second thoughts? Bike proved itself today though in the hands of Pol Esp.

Aegerter on P13 till last lap and then he crashes throwing away valuable points.
So Manzi who was at P16 still came in at P15 scoring 1 point.....

2nd time Aegerter drops it in last few laps missing out on points.

Whattahell was going on in Moto3, I think I've never seen so many crashes. Only 17 riders ended the race out of what...32?

EDIT: I have to correct myself, seems like Aegerter ran out of fuel in the last lap.

Moto 3 was awesome racing!
Felt sorry for the rider that manage to almost rip his bike to pieces. I think most crashed to there being very little in terms of track temperature.

As for the GP, Fabio is starting to show he has the skills. Correct me if I'm wrong but he also had fastest lap of the race on lap 20 whilst chasing Cal down.

You're not wrong.
Infact I believe Quatararo & Marquez were the only 2 riders in 2nd half of the race to be under 32.5
