It's raining AND the sun is out leading to panic before the start of the Moto GP race.

Hopefully it will stay wet or start drying consistently.

Marquez is playing games in the conditions!
Fastest laps, Power slides.....

Dovi

Battle for 3rd was good while it lasted

Marquez has just proven that it will take something special to beat him!
Swimming across the line.
I said after race 3 that he would clean sweep the season. Fuckit, I should have put some money down!

One wonders where he would have finished if he didn't mess up the start so much with bike/setup choices.

Brilliant ride from Dovi. I think his price just went up.

Rossi threw it away when he second-guessed himself and swapped back to wets before the start. Once he swapped back to slicks his times were matching those of Marquez.

And Marquez was amazing once again. Got everything right. How old is he again?

The lost season for JLo continues. His mojo is missing. I think Marc the Merciless has it in his back pocket.

Great job from Dovi. Rossi dicked that up pretty hard with tire choices but ran his usual great through-the-field race. At least he held on to second in the championship.

Marquez the unstoppable. Rain or shine, or in-between, he finds a way to whoop everybody's ass. 8 out of 8, what can you say. Quickly becoming a legend.

despite his low grid position, Vale seemed to have potential for a podium, too bad his gamble with slicks once again backfired.

Great race by Dovi, who now overtakes JLo on championship points. (Wth, Jorge..???)

Is anyone able to explain to me what I have just seen?
That was one of the craziest race ever!
It was a real chance to beat Marquez. But it seems like it's not going to happen any soon. This guy is just amazing.

Different. Great job by Dovi. Aleix showing he can trade paint at the front.
Lorenzo in the "Battle for 14th"? Never could have predicted that, ever.

And thanks again to Nick Harris for disclosing results for other races.
