How often has the closest-to-Marky repeated the feat at the next race?
So, scratch Pedro for second.
Coin flip again, JLo or The Doctor?
I just about always pick a non alien 3rd, .so

Marquee
JLo
Bautista

Yes, he was closer to it than I was. But as Eddie Lawson said, "second is the first loser"

Nicky and Colin had a braking duel for the final chicane. Colin fell off the inside of his bike and Nicky had to stand it up and run through the grass.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. He was about a corner away from taking his sole MotoGP win. Bet he'll never forget that.

Not that it's breaking news but, VR said in today's press conference that, basically, it's just a matter of finalizing everything before his new contract with Yamaha is announced.

Romano Fenati

Maverick Vinales

Valentino Rossi

My picks are based on the cool first name factor. Marc doesn't have the same panache.

Jeez, I wonder what that A-Style logo on the background stands for?

Agreed. It took me YEARS to figure it out. Maybe I didn't and someone said something about it.

Rossi won here last year and has now had plenty of time to study Marquez from close behind.

He said that at the last press conference too. So apparently, it IS about the money. Maybe they are waiting for a sponsor to sign on the line? With each passing race Rossi's position just gets stronger ...

And I love the logo in the background. Still can't believe they got away with that.

Not so much embarrassing as heart-breaking. Such a long and checkered career to never have a single victory in MGP, to have it in his grasp and then ... watch it slip away. I still cringe whenever I see that photo.
