It’s been a huge step forward for Ducati this weekend. Jorge Lorenzo started like a beast and even leaded the race for a while being competitive. However; the Spaniard soon experienced some problems and was held back again… but there are more Ducatis on the grid.
The new MotoGP season has started this 2017 with great changes and great expectancy, and of course the biggest of surprises. Congratulations Maverick Viñales 25.
It was a lovely race the one we could see last Sunday, as expected in a race track so good in a country with such an amazing history in motorcycling. Suzuki made a great victory, a bit unexpected, but well Maverick Viñales had to make it one day or another. Congratulations, and mind my words, we have a future Moto GP champion here. Let’s give him some time.
…and apart from the amazing clash, the race was quite funny, especially when Marc Marquez decided a deliberated crazy attack on Rossi first, and everybody else when he lost his place on the track. This boy should know how to behave and control himself sometimes… but I strongly believe when that happens, Moto GP would be a bit more boring than it is now!
He couldn’t be on the podium, but Cal Crutchlow, who had just won the previous race was, in front of his audience in his home country. Good day for him, it could have been better though, it seems he had the chance, but races are like they are.
And the accident between Pol Espargaro and Loriz Baz ended up in both bikes destroyed, both riders in hospital, and nothing else despite how impressive it was and how horrible it could have been.
The Circus of the Speed will never leave us indiferent!
The German GP was hard for all riders… and as it always happens in the rain, it is more of a lottery game than a race
The number 99 rider seemed to have won the Le Mans GP so easily, but nothing is easy in this sport. However; one rider after another seem to beat everybody else being the fastest. After Rossi, it was time for Lorenzo.
The great party at the Spanish GP in Jerez 2016
…but a very fast bitch, specially in Austin where nobody could follow him!
Valentino Rossi comes with a total of 312 points to sunny Spain, and 4 victories. Behind him, and playing at home, comes Jorge Lorenzo with a total of 305 points and 6 victories. We do not know anything about any possible sanction to Valentino Rossi, and believe there’s not much risk of rain in Spain. I don’t live far from Valencia and the Mediterranean coastline currently has a lovely weather.
