Season looks to be shaping up nicely for another year of the best motorsport on the planet Pop Corn

Hoping the GOAT has a better season this year, looks like the Yamaha has improved somewhat, and if Rossi can't win it would be great to see Dovi on the Duke take it!

Can't wait Dance Tap

I hope I am wrong but I think Rossi peaked two seasons ago and the young ones are way too much of a handful for him now at his age.

Still my Moto GP hero of all time but he should pack it in after this season as I’d hate to see him finish way off the front or get injured.

5th from 14th on the grid wasn't too bad on a track that doesn't suit the Yamaha, 0.6s off the winner, plus beating his team mate (on pole) yet again, I wouldn't write him off just yet!

The thing about Rossi is that he just loves the sport, I think he will pack it in when he knows he's no longer competitive

What a race though Thumb

Another win for Ducati Thumb

Yep, like the old days with the 916, Ducati have built a race bike and converted it for the road!

If anyone was wondering - like me earlier - the Moto GP highlights package is now on Quest.

What a fantastic last lap. worship

If he stays injury free, Marc Marquez will walk it. Again. He's just too good for the rest of the grid. A once in a lifetime rider. He'll likely go on to be the GOAT championship wise.

The closeness of the racing on bikes is something that F1 dreams of. Cracking racing last night.

Difficult to see who or what is going to stop those Ducati’s.....I am thinking the Doohan and Honda days.

When Honda moan about tyre cooling you know they are worried.

Hats off to them as over the years they have struggled at times Thumb

There really is no comparison with F1, the racing is first class, fairing to fairing stuff almost every lap, how these guys do it is beyond me and I've done my fair share of track days!

Enjoyed the MotoGP this weekend and well done Rins; thought Valentino had it all done at one point but a second place is better than none at all. Sad for Cal - some superb racing at some points on a very fast but lousy surface track

I'll have to wait to see it on Tues night. I had a quick check of the standings. I hope Rossi can take it out this year.

That Spanish lad Rins on the Suzy looks to be the real deal with elements of Stoners lightness of touch and smoothness but with Rossi’s raw aggression when needed. Surprised

Even Valentino has recognised that there is a new Fox in the MotoGP chicken coup

The trust and respect riders have for each other is the reason they exchange paintwork I know only one guy who would punt people off in MotoGP/WSB and he became an outcast.

This fairing bashing is part of the the rush these guys get with each other on track knowing that nobody wants to hurt the other and will avoid an off at all costs. They would rather let another rider lean on them than risk a crash or injury to another

Doohan was the master at in your face tight racing and that code of conduct prevails today in MotoGP.......thankfully, as it beats the hell out of watching F1👌

Don't know if anyone watched the race at Mugello a week or so ago; one of the best MotoGp's i've seen in a long time.

What a great race and lots of barging and bashing around, and all at over 100mph.

Makes F1 look like a picnic

Roll on this weekend

Cracking race. Big boys going elbow to elbow. The last time I saw that kind of racing was Rosberg vs Hamilton in Abu Dhabi from memory. Well it was one of the Arab night races anyway.
The junior bike races are even more argy bargy.

I did and I have to agree.

Despite the action usually taking place on track I normally find myself fast forwarding Moto GP races where as I watch every lap of the more processional F1.

I watched all of the Mugello race.

I agree Osh, what a gem of a race. Proper racing at 220 mph in places, elbows out, down and any which way, superb.

Marquez at 65 degrees of lean too.... Surprised
