Great race. Jackass has matured so much as a driver these past few years. And I hope Zarco gets his win this year.

And to reiterate what I said like three years ago, Rins needs to fucken stop crashing.

Le Mans this weekend, means crash galore.
Just to back your comment, Mat Oxley has just confirmed the number of crashes in the 'seniors'
Le Mans was an ice rink for much of the weekend, claiming 117 victims over the three days.
That was taken from his MotoGP review, with not a mention of the lower categories, so not including Moto2 & 3. :shocked:

Michele Pirro has been called up to ride for Pramac Racing at next weekend’s Italian MotoGP.

Pirro will substitute for Jorge Martin who was injured at the Portuguese MotoGP last month.

Tito Rabat competed in Spain and France in place of Martin, with next weekend’s race Pirro’s first MotoGP start since last year’s Styrian Grand Prix.

The team said:
“After listening to the opinions and the reflections made by the doctors, Jorge Martin will return in time for the Catalunya Grand Prix,”
“The conditions of the Spanish rider are without a doubt improving, but for him to return in time for Mugello does not seem to be the best choice due to how tough and demanding that circuit is.

“Therefore, Michele Pirro (Ducati test rider) will be carrying the Pramac Racing colours with Johann Zarco in the Italian Grand Prix.”

Rossi woeful again.... having said this is a critical weekend for his future decisions. I think I read that there is some performance clause in his contract that might take the stay or go decision away from Rossi if the achievement stipulations are not met by a certain date. ie Yamaha would not renew his contract.

What a brutal crash between Dupasquier, Alcoba and Sasaki in the closing minute of Moto3 qualifying. Dupasquier is treated for about 25min at the scene still and the helicopter has landed straight near crash site. Stabilizing seems to be tough, I guess. In any other way they would have carried him away already. Crossing fingers and knocking on wood for Dupasquier.

Mat Oxley seemingly kept an eye on the clock and reports more than half an hour of treatment on crash site.

Meanwhile, after some delay MotoGPs FP4 is about to go underway

Hmm. That doesn't look good. There's rarely a positive result when s bike hits head or chest, and the need to stabilise for so long is also a concern.

Official reports are saying the same with no updates on his condition as yet beyond "serious".
Swiss rider Jason Dupasquier was airlifted to a hospital after a crash during Moto3 qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix at Mugello on Saturday.

The 19-year-old Dupasquier was involved in an accident with riders Ayumu Sasaki and Jeremy Alcoba toward the end of the session, which was immediately red-flagged.

Dupasquier appeared to fall and was then hit by his own motorbike and that of Sasaki, while a visibly shocked Alcoba later said on television that he thought he had also gone over the Swiss rider’s legs.

There was no official confirmation on Dupasquier’s condition. He was treated on the track for approximately 30 minutes before a helicopter landed and airlifted him to a hospital in Florence.
Best wishes that all is as good as possible and Dupasquier is not suffering serious injuries. All I can add is that he seemed to be run over his legs by Sasaki, so hopefully no head injuries.
