It's funny since Marquez is re-writing all the records and people still love the racing. But MotoGP has come a long way since the Doohan dominance boredom and now it's SBK that can't deliver a good product.

All this being said, Yamaha is just a joke this season. Rossi is too old and still has one more season before his team enters MotoGP so he can finally go away but Vinales just loses too much time in the early laps race after race and never recovers from this. Quartararo needs to sort out the starts.

Jonas Folger is making his racing return for the Barcelona round, he'll be taking part in Moto2. Good to have him back.

Unfortunate race incident.
Quite funny though that his mistake wiped out the only other riders halfway in contention to Marquez and to the Honda factory therefore. Championship decided. Time to find something else.
Shit happens.

Lorenzo has crashed hard at Assen in FP. Brought to the medical center. Seems to be ok.

Lorenzo has been diagnosed with a fractured back and will be out for the weekend. Bradl could step up to replace him.
