MotoGP Aragon: Now with Spoiler!

Last round before the circus heads to the Far East... Zarco is out at KTM... Fabio looked great last time out, while Ducati struggled quite a bit... how will things fair in Spain?

Thumbs up

I'll be watching MOTO3 for sure! That Japanese kid ... "Tatsuki Suzuki" ... he's a spoiler! He rides on the Sic58 team, run by Marco Simoncelli's father. He's been a part of what's lighting the MOTO3 class on fiya this season. Ten different winners out of thirteen events! "Record breaking" as this run has been called.

I agree,
Moto3 is awesome. Best race of the day by far. Neither of the other two classes even comes close. Moto2 is still really good, just not quite a good as Moto3. MotoGp can be good once in a while but mostly, it's a yawn fest for me. The first few laps are a little bit crazy (sometimes) and then nothing but watching riders circulate until the last lap or so when the action kicks off again. There's more action in one lap of a Moto3 race than that. ....sean

Rossi never won here, so ---

Anyway, MM won it 2013, 2016, 2017, 2018 so he seems to know the layout.

Didn't he get 14th in the last race? I thought he'd be much improved being at Aragon

It's time he retired, he's blocking Zarko from moving up. He's getting old, clearly past it, time to retire and not hang around like some singer

And there you have it... MotoGp is all about tyre endurance, get some position in the first few laps, cruise till 5 laps to the end then go for it.
They either need to make tyres that will go the distance or reduce the capacity of the motors to match the performance of the tyres.
I'm sick of watching it.
Either that or make a pit stop for fresh tyres compulsory.

Or just make it a 6 lap trophy dash.

Who needs all them middle laps anyway?
