something else to wonder about. Why does Karel Abraham still on the grid. He's running 1:32.4 on GP16, Jack Miller, never touch the Ducati before did a 1:30.6

very excited about Aprilia and KTM next year, hope they can mix it up in the top 5.

It seems Zarco likes the 2017 bike.
Johann Zarco

Position: 2nd - Time: 1'30.389 - Laps: 53

“I am happy and I like the new bike. I started on the 2016 YZR-M1 that I rode this year in order to get some references and a feeling on the first run. Then I tried the 2017 version and overall, I have a good feeling when I am braking which is important. When you start the race, to have more control like this on the brakes means you can fight in a better way so I am pleased. I went for a fast lap on new tyres and I’m not far from my qualifying time on Saturday, but only one-tenth slower. However, I am using less energy on the bike so for me, testing the new bike was very positive.”

I’m pretty sure I read you (Mark) were leaving the forum now it’s the off season

We all got a bonner when Vinales did the same thing on the M1 last year after he jumped from Suzuki...... that didn’t really work out as most people expected.

Early days....

ok first its been raining since sunday here in south florida and i did not anticipate that or all the tissues needed after the race.

second vinales did do the same thing however does this make you scratch your head at all be honest.
the original 2017 Yamaha worked perfectly with the original softer version of the Michelin. do we agree here as maverick dominated testing and won 3 of 5 races.
the tire was there for 16 till it magically disappeared because jorge was dominating pre season with it.
come to 2017 with Lorenzo gone, Rossi actually asked for a softer Michelin as a way to foil Marquez as marquez prefers harder tires as he breaks very hard. it worked at the start where Yamaha were clearly ahead of Honda and Ducati. then what happened? Rossi didn’t anticipate Vinales instant speed. The Yamaha was pretty much perfect do we agree here?
the engineers have delivered for years. Tire 070 took care of all that, and it did it’s job perfectly even if Yamaha are now behind because it has put Rossi back as the go to rider for development.

could this be true you tell me?
Thanks from cmh210
