Textbook win For Fabio Quartararo on a Yamaha suited track despite the power deficit, congratulations.
Poor Aleix made a blue mistaking the last lap early, finishing 5th I think after being second all the way till then and with a rocketship start.
Jorge Martin is still partying coming home second
Ten pin bowling at the first corner by Taka san took out Rins and Bagnaia.
And Honda came equal with Kawasaki...

It was super scary, but sadly it was his own doing. And not first bad mistake from him that takes out others. I feel he's riding under tremendous pressure as there are talks that both him and Alex Marquez are on the way out from their Honda seats after this season.

Btw. Rins ended up with a fractured wrist after that flight into which Nakagami launched him

mine was not but maybe yours.
Honda is not that bad engine power wise. In fact ( I think) even yamaha is not lack so much power but just can not accelerate good enough because of engine architecture.
And a bike only go fast at straight is not good if you are good rider. Of course Ducati are not that bad at turns anymore. But if they were not so fast at straight probably they could score hardly at many races.

Should be of interest to anyone who has fallen off a two wheeler
"Aerodynamics as you've never seen them before" MotoGP
Ducarti being one of the early innovators of this gained a huge advantage in wet races by having more front end downforce enabling far better grip in all segments of cornering. This is why they won most wet races back then.

WSBK,
This might be why Bautista is off into the distance, still in force I think.

Below are the RPM limits for the 2021 WorldSBK manufacturers:

Kawasaki (RR) 2021: 14600

Ducati V4: 16100

Yamaha: 14950

BMW 2021 (M): 15500

Honda: 15600

The 2021 BMW M 1000 RR engine received multiple new components. Therefore, the CTI (International Technical Commission) have decided that it has a rev limit based on calculation.

The 2021 Kawasaki ZX-10RR engine received only a limited amount of new components. Therefore, the CTI have decided that it has a rev limit based on the performance balancing algorithm following the 2020 season.
WSBK has operated a rev limit system since 2018 as part of a performance balancing push to keep the grid as competitive as possible, with those limits re-judged every three rounds based on a performance algorithm which comprises numerous criteria.

Should a manufacturer be deemed to be too competitive by the algorithm, it can lose 250rpm, or it can gain 250rpm if its performance is lacklustre.

Kawasaki spent the winter working the gearing on its new ZX-10RR to a rev limit of 15100rpm but must start the 2021 season with a limit of 14600rpm.
