Yeah that was one of the best races I've seen in a long time there was a lot of passing, banging the whole nine yards more like a moto3 race!

Couldn't believe when Lorenzo loss the front-end and Rossi ran into the back of him and neither Rider went down amazing!

Good stuff! I actually paid attention. Even had to rewind a lot of parts to watch over.

That was one of the most entertaining GP for a while now. Great racing. typically Rossi had a dig at Dovi and blamed him for not being on the podium. All I saw was good clean close racing! It was great to see so many bikes have a go in the top group for so long.

That was epic, no words after rewinding several times. I need a drink.

Great race. I feel for Dani and hope he can get his mojo back doing whatever he wants to in the future. Nice to see MV getting in the mix as well this week. I was disappointed to see the Dovi and Rossi tangle with a couple laps left. He was correct in saying it hurt both their positions.

It's MM's world, everybody else just rides in it. He toyed with everybody for 20 laps then had enough. It's amazing to watch him race but depressing at the same time knowing nobody is going to touch him for the championship this year and more than likely for the foreseeable future. Maybe JL can give him some competition next year.

MotoGP sort of looked like a Moto3 race with the lead bunched up and changing positions. It was the most exciting race of the year. Dovi caused both he and Val to lose out. Boo

Fairly dull race until the last few laps. No one wanted to overheat their tires I guess. Dovi win finally. Lorenzo a class act to congratulate and shake his hand after the crap Dovi was saying about him to the press.

Captain obvious notes, the Yamahas are real lousy this year. Vinales didn't even get in one lap. If he didn't qualify like sh!t all the time he wouldn't be stuck trying to pass the CRT also-rans.

So, I record the race using the guide, and when I go to watch it, all I see is a repeating notice that Comcast and Bein Sports are having a dispute over fees and Comcast has quit carrying Bein until this is resolved. And this is even though I pay $10 extra per month to get it, and they don't offer it in HD!! That's it! I'm cutting the cable!

Vinales was P!ssed about his quali -a few good articles on how he was furious his crew chief held back tires at the end of FP3 as he was copying Rossi's strategy of using one set at the end and saving the rest for Quali (But Rossi had a back up plan and used another set anyway) and Vinales missed out on going directly to Q2 but had burnt out the tires in Q1 so couldn't qualify on his preferred set. He did a faster time in Q1 to get into Q2.... Yamaha are going from bad to worse currently, I hope they find something in the Monday test, and I hope Roman gets replaced before the end of the season, the bitterness between him and Maverick will only get worse, especially after what he said in the media.

other than that good race. I was really hoping Jorge would get the win, but he had a good battle and I hope he does well at Honda next year.

Moto 2 was a great race to watch the KTM are looking good again and Oliviera finally got to start the race at the front & didn't need to come from way back for the win.

Moto 3 was also good, however I would have liked to have seen Martin fit and fighting for the win, hopefully his injury isn't too bad and doesn't cost him the championship (he is now 2nd after not competing - he has to be the favourite if fit).

I think we have put to bed the myth that Lorenzo can't race after that one.

He made the race very exciting especially with that "two for one pass" on Marquez and Dovi.

I reckon his heart was in his mouth during that pass as he went in pretty hot.

Good race, I enjoyed it.

Best moment was when the announcer remarked on the pace early and said "this has a whiff of Assen about it".

I cut the cord years ago. In my opinion, MotoGP Videocast is a worthwhile subscription to have.
