You can get highlights (only 7 mins) on Youtube on the official motogp channel. Worth it. Even MM haters will have to grudgingly admit to his talent........

I feel lucky enough to have bt sport but I'm saddened as just checked out quest moto gp. Picture quality is so poor. No hd unless you upgrade then. Great racing marred by grainy footage. It's like going back to the 90's.

Answered your own question. You showed your hand there, but at least you didn't try to pretend to be a fan of the sport.

Basically, Rossi is still there because he's still good at it. Good enough to be on the grid without a shadow of doubt, and that's all that matters. Perhaps it would be more open minded to ask why various others are still on the grid, who not only perform worse than VR46 but also don't really bring anything else to the sport either?

As for the racing, unfortunately MotoGP is screwed when somebody can leave the track, drop to last place or whatever it was and still podium, if not win (which MM93 would undoubtedly have done had he not binned it).

The ease in which he sliced through the field wasn't just about his undeniable talent, it was also due to the total lack of resistance from anybody! They know they can't compete with him so they basically just get out of the way!

This is great if you are a rabid MM93 fanboy I suppose, but not if you're a genuine fan of bike racing.

As usual, Moto3 delivered the goods!! Felt sorry for McPhee, but at least he went down fighting!

Not a Marquez fan but there's no denying the boys skill on two wheels, even if some of the also rans jumped out of his way he was still faster than the front runners. I thought he was very unlucky not to be on the podium.

Come on McPhee! He could win the championship this year, he just needs to keep finishing races up at the pointy end (obviously).

McPhee in moto3 and Quartararo in motoGP take the titles and I’d be well chuffed.

no spoiler here...

Holy {#@?, take MM93 out of the equation and the championship comes alive! Take CC35 out and no-one else can ride a H*nda.

For anyone disappointed by the lack of MotoGP highlights on Quest yesterday, fear not, as this was due to 'technical issues' and they are rescheduled for tonight at 6pm.

Real shame for VR not reaching his 200th podium, maybe next week.

Great racing again!

I find it amusing when people call Rossi a ‘bed blocker’ when we watch Vinales fail to deliver yet again. He seems to perform during testing, FP and qualifying, but s**t the bed on Sunday, almost the exact opposite to his team mate?

I do rate him (I was in the grandstand when he romped to victory at Silverstone on a Suzuki in 2016) but his weird Sunday performances these days are a real mystery.
