Ya ya ya, while Vinales was standing on 2 drums of Castrol R, peering into Zarco's pit as he was drawing the Qatar lines on a piece of paper with the new Crayola set he got from Hervé Poncharal...

You're supposed to make up some lame bullshit about how it's a completely
different bike blah,blah,blah....
Lorenzo was interviewed the other night and he was saying how the Duc is so different to the Yam and
he has to reinvent how he rides.Give him a few rounds and he'll be up there with the rest of them

I wonder if Jorge is having sleepless nights now that hes suffering for trying to out-bluff Yamaha and their chosen one VR46. Still, the big cheque from Ducati must go a little ways to ease the pain.

And if Jorge and Ducati don't work out, where can he go next? Can't go back to Yamaha with his tail between his legs, and Honda is unlikely unless Senor Marquez allows it, once Dani moves on or retires. So that leaves Suzuki ( with Joe the Maniac as a team mate!), Aprilia or KTM. Not much of a choice, so the Duc ride had better come good.

very clean win by Pedbot, race wasn't to exciting but at least the standings are kinda close so far at 62,60,58,52,41 for top 5 and Lorenzo looked fairly confident on the Puke so might be a bit of a surprise there to come yet

Looks like Lorenzo can handle that Ducati better than some, no surprise that Vinales beat his team mate but it's interesting how Zarco on satellite bike was a lot faster than both factory Yamahas, It's between Marquez, Vinales and a quickly adapting Lorenzo now I'd say.
