Rossi almost there
« on: 14 April 2019, 09:41:40 PM »
Don't begrudge Alex Rins his win one bit, but how many race fans were willing "The Doctor" to win on Sunday ? it was a shame Marquez crashed out but I don't think it's a hollow victory for Rins,it don't matter how many fall off or break down at the end of the day,he won it well,nobody wins a Moto GP race easily these days. :thumbup
never look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

The old adage "to finish first, first you must finish"
Great to see Rins and Suzuki doing well. Would have been nice to see Rossi on the top step, but it will give the Suzuki team a much need boost

3 Hondas out of the running, :rolleyes If Lorenzo was a duck he would sink, he is not having much luck.

When I saw marquez start to clear off I thought this would be a repeat of argentina, when he fell my initial thought was rossi is gonna win the race and was on the edge of my seat, but given rins and the suzuki's good form and it's plain to see the suzuki is now the yamaha in terms of cornering and i will go as far as to say its as fast as well.
When i saw rins closing in fast i knew that the doctor was not going to win, my heart sank as rins eased past and valentino made a little mistake that was a done deal.
Well done to alex rins he deserved it he seems like a likeable fella and he has some good form atm.

Dovi's sterling effort shouldn't be overlooked. A disasterous qualifying put him 13th on the grid. The holeshot gadget fired him into 8th at the first turn to cross the line in 4th place, scoring valuable points. Great to see a different make on the top step with Nagagami being the first Honda home in 8th. Odd that Lorenzo suffered two mechanicals over the weekend, very un-Hondalike.
