It was almost a carbon copy of last years race, with MM content to follow Dovi round at a pace that them conserve their tyres for the 6 lap sprint at the end. Rins was an occasional bother for MM but I doubt he was too worried, the Suzuki doesn't have the horsepower to complete with Ducati and Honda at the moment, although it appears to be able to carry more corner speed. I've no doubt Rins will be on the podium a few times this year.

Honda have negated Ducati's top speed advantage.

Crutchlow did well to finish third.

Petrucci looked properly upset in the garage after the race.

Miller took to throwing bits of his bike at the opposition ( must have made for an interesting conversation with the mechanics..)

Felt gutted for Quartararo, looks like he may be a fly in the ointment for a few of the more established riders this year.

I hope its not going to be a season of last 6 lap tactical races, which is the way is was heading last year and we get some more old fashioned, gloves off, fairing bashing and overtaking of the good old days. Unlikely, but we can hope.
