Looks like it's going to be a wet one, should be interesting. Especially with the championship points battle so close now. Fabio's luck had to run out sooner or later.

Wow! That is close.

Maybe Jack will take this one. He's one of the best wet weather specialists on the grid.

There’s a certain M. Marquez that may figure into things.

As for the title contenders, they’ll have two goals:

Finish

Beat the other contenders.

If 10th gets that done, it’s a good day.

Rain right from the start - I see Binder and MM way out in front by the 3rd lap, with Miller 3d by the 15th lap.
Binder won a wet race because he stayed out on slicks and nursed it home, i remember Olivera winning a wet race on wets like the rest of the field. Raining for the race id go Olivera Fabio then MM and Jack, patchy wet/dry well hard to go past Jack and MM in those conditions, and those conditions would be a nightmare for Fabio.

Don’t forget Zarco is very fast in the wet
He is a good wet rider, and this track is a start go type track that will suit the Ducati's, but Zarco runs hot and cold, and with no GP win to date, and being a bit crash happy, i wouldn't bet my house on him, but a chance foresure.

Oh I agree and he is always useless in the second half of the season.

Oh, what you mean like this??
Is that purple one in the middle Fabio, i mean it was him that hit MM, wedging a piece of his wing in the rear of MM's bike, which intern when using the ride hight device sent him into Taka. I blame Fabio. ;)

No, Fabio had nowhere to go. Such over exuberance by MM losing it in such a tight pack so early on in his mad dash is totally unprofessional and he's got far too much previous to be given any benefit of the doubt here...

Small mistake by MM, and Fabio on the gas had nowhere to go. Other than the MM incidents, it was a great race. Nice to see Binder up there on a not so competitive KTM. Qual for Motegi, and nice to see 2 KTM's in the top 10.
