Australian GP [Spoilers]

Great qualifying.

Dovi has a lot of work to do.

Zarco and Rossi should swap seats.

Crashlow crashed again

Really glad for Jack on 2nd row in home GP.

KTM means business. So great to see both bikes in Q2

Disappointing ride by Lorenzo. The Ducs don't seem to like it here.

Vinales mustache is dirty.

Phillip Island is beautiful.

No real predictions for the race. Field is so mixed up I have no idea what's going to happen. Money would be on Marc, but anything can happen.
Thanks from ZigZag

MM Looks very strong here in Phillip Island. He has to play it smart cuz too many fast riders up there. Hope Andrea Dovizioso finds a better set up in Warm up before the race. All will be decided depending in Weather and tire strategy 27 long laps of pure Tire management. My money is on MM for the Championship my DNA is with AD. Maverick and Zarco are very comfortable too. Aleix Spargaro on Aprilia with the new tires for this track is very impressive.

Congrats to Marc, ridiculously quick as always.
Great final lap fight for 2nd and 3rd between Rossi, Vinales and Zarco.
Horrible race by Dovi, making one mistake at the beginning, and at the final corner getting overtaken by 2 riders to finish 13th!
He pretty much just lost his chance for the championship imo, with Vinales now having a chance for second place in the championship.

Yup. Dovi just took all the wind out of my sails. Great for Marc but buzz kill for the championship.

Marc needs a DNF in Malaysia for Valencia to be a decider.
