Would love to see Rossi win this one when it restarts, having started in 16th. Still, he has already confirmed his 3rd position in the championship with Vinales crashing out.
Yeah, Rossi, or Rins would do it for me. Pol Espargaro starting 4th on his KTM too.
4th, after his crash? I hadn’t noticed that. I thought Pedrosa was 4th.

Until today I had never seen someone spin a motorcycle. Iannone changed that.

Impressive performances up and down the field in the conditions.
That's what Jacky Ickx said tin above mentioned interview :)
Seriously, this is as tough as it can get and I can only remember one race similarly washed out in the past few years and that was at Silverstone shortly after the new inner loop had been opened.

As much as I like Dovi, i'd love to see a Rins/Rossi/Pol podium.

Great day for KTM in all 3 classes. Impressive recovery by Pol, helped by the red flag no doubt but you still have to bring her home.

Silverstone this year was more about 'sweating' tarmac releasing oil than really been washed out. Oil + water don't really mix well for racing bikes.

Yeah, I was just yanking your chain a bit there.

Indeed a great day for KTM, that leaves Aprilia as the one team who can't even get one thing right at any place except Aragon.
