I think Bagnaia's move is very optimistic, he desperately tried to overtake. When he can not overtake at straight with engine power it is not easy, isn't it ?
I don't get that move at all, the risk/reward for such a lunge was off. Why would you risk losing 7 additional points when you could only gain 2 points. Especially when you are on the podium in pretty much the other remaining races.

And that move makes even less sense when you consider that next race is at Thailand which should be a Ducati playground. Bagnaia should just have taken a 1 point loss here and then take over the championship lead at Thailand because I can't really see Fabio dragging that M1 much higher than what he managed today. But as it was last year, Ducati made a bullet and their riders are just spilling it all around. Whenever there is a championship to grab they faulter and those that don't really have a chance to win it start riding better.


Can't wait for next year to have a F. Quartararo - M. Marquez fight for the title

Mee too have a feeling that Honda and Yamaha build good enough bike will give us a Fabia MM fight next year.

A half fit Marc doing what he is doing, points to total domination if he regains full fitness ever, regardless of where the bike stands. There isn't one convincing rider in the field who gives the vibes of being a next superstar. Each rider is decent on a day when the bike does what they want and looks like an also ran when the bike is slightly off.

Boneheaded move from Pecco IMO.

True

Just makes me wonder how many wins would Marc have reached had he not broken his arm in 2020…

Espergaro himself also made such a mistake by thinking race is over before it really is. He lost many points by that.

By what? He went into pits asap, and started the race asap, and finished it, despite Aprilia made another huge mistake as the second bike was on soft rear tire when that was not the correct one...

What did Aleix did wrong exactly in your opinion to point fingers to him instead of the responsible of the HUGE mistake?

It amazing some people can still bash Aleix after probably the biggest mistake I've seen in any MotoGP team in 30 years, which ruined best and possibly only chance Aleix will ever have to become WDC #-o

ECU on eco-map which is used for saving fuel when the bike goes out of pitlane. Team forgot to change it before warm up lap. Rider cannot change it

Then soft tire on rear wheel instead of medium

Barcelona race.
I mean If someone will fire because he forgot bike in wrong mapping ( it is questionable why AE couldn't back the right mapping, doesn't he know how to use his bike ? ) someone also can be fired who left racing before it finished.
