MGP 20/20 hindsight

After watching qualifying, coupled with pre season testing, it become evident that MV25 should have taken Randy Mamola's advice and stayed with Suzuki. Dear George would be miserable anywhere he goes, so he should have stuck with his bike that he got to mould in his image while VR was away playing Ducati. The M1 is like a 250/moto2 bike with way more power, and the perfect choice for that bike was snapped up by Herve P.
This is going to be an epic GP season.
Thanks from Phl

you think if and (i hate saying if) 25 didnt qualify 12th he wouldnt have won the race or at least been close? best times of the race from halfway point on.

99 is done. will be lucky to podium.

i like the new silver in the gp18

I think Mav definitely had a shot to win if he would have qualified better. Dovi is looking good, let’s see if he can continue. Awesome race overall with a big lead group.

Zarco is good but he needs to learn tire management

JLo needs to push and quit the shit

Mav had the pace but the battle might have broke him (top 3)

Rossi is done

Petrux saw the tires go toast in 2 laps, the factory bike has the better code

One HELL of a race, I think Dovi is the danger man, that GP18 "handles" so good down the straits he doesn't have to risk life and limb in the corners. That makes win number 7 for him, in the last 14 races!

Zarco and Petrux show real potential. Maybe not to win the title this year but Iím sure they will play spoilers to others and their points.

I hope it continues with these close battles and large groups at the front for an exciting season.

If Dovi and Petrux can run up front why canít Jlo? Miller is gonna beat him on the old bike if he doesnít get his shit together.

Rossiís not quite done...maybe not the bride but a bridesmaid... for sure.

It will be interesting to see how Morbidelli and Luthi come along playing with the big boys.
