    Now that I've got his side of the story, I reckon I was a bit harsh here. Still don't know why he hates people following him though.

    MV12 probably deserves suspension. Correct me if I'm wrong, the public only saw what he did on pit entry. Reports of what he did during the race most likely come from the paddock and spectators.
    Yamaha is not going to release the data log.
    Neither would any team who's rider acted poorly.
    I can't think of anyone else who's had a melt down on track but, it's highly likely that there have been quite a few less obvious events which have had riders spoken to and contracts threatened.
    MV12's situation is that it was very obvious and, after the announcement he was gone and, after his sulk on the podium before the summer break.

    Anyway, there back on the idiot box tonight.
    Did you hear that Stoprac Raz and Keanan Sofoglu have made an appearance at the GP? That got tongues wagging.

    There WAS a clip on the tube of you showing about three laps Raymondo, can’t seem to find it? He was banging off the limiter for a couple of secs. every gear change on the front straight, then short shifting an lugging the rest of the lap. Strange behaviour, I’d fucking apologise too.

    Yeah. That's not good.
    Foxtel funny as right now, playing that song...."something's happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear"

    Kev's right, something's wrong in the top paddock..."

    Binder rode like a proper Saffer (If I fall I am not gonna finish, If I don't win what's the point of finishing) he is from an INDUSTRIAL area (not panel shops, Refineries and Blast Furnaces) just south of me, his Grandfather was a proper Swiss trained Turbine Engineer, good people. :D

    Well his Parents named him 'Maverick'.
    He is not the predictable racer that delivers or tries to everyrace.weekend.
    Maybe if his woke parents had named him ' 'Consistent vinales' he might be a different character

    All 3 classes were good racing.

    Is it just me or does Jack appear to start squaring off corners super early in the race and take no defensive lines at all when in a fight to remain in front?

    I must've missed the email.

    Now Rossi has retired is Vinales the new target?

    For those who can, the three BSB races from Donnington are unbelievable viewing…..

    I don't think he has a huge amount of confidence in his front end grip...

    Does anyone else think Marquez may have stumbled on a solution to Honda's problems by choosing the soft rear to start the race? I wonder how he would have gone if it didn't rain.
