    2019 Silverstone - spoliers will be coming I'm sure

    Was that the most incredible finish to a race all year? It was friggin' awesome!

    Definitely an exciting finish! I think Rins set him up with the outside line pass attempt on the previous lap. MM went a little wide on the final lap there and Rins was right there to pounce on him inside. Brilliant move and really happy to see someone making a contest of it.

    For the first quarter of the race I'm thinking OK Rossi, this is more like it. Rossi just can't hang at the front anymore and I have to wonder how much of that is the bike and how much is Rossi's age. Life has got to be pretty amazing for him off the track and I don't know how someone his age in that situation can put it all on the line every other Sunday against all the young'uns out there.

    I hope Dovi is OK.

      Vinales was leaving VR in the dust. He’s still a freekin outstanding rider and legend but it ain’t only the Yamaha. His days are done but his days on the podium are gonna be scarce.

        It seems like Rossi is capable of a a solid 4th to 6th place in a field of 20something riders. His last podium was because a few riders in front of him crashed out wasn't it? I guess there's two schools of thought on a situation like his. Some riders decide to go out on the top. Others keep racing for the joy of it (or maybe because they can't imagine life without it - yet) and stay in the game until they lose their seat. I imagine when it becomes obvious to Yamaha that they need a different rider there, that Rossi would retire before he went to another team again.

        Articles that I have read suggest this kind of retirement for Rossi. Yamaha and VR talk about the end of his contract as a joint decision. So I will assume that he rides until his current contract expires, then with a gentle nudge (being released by Yamaha), he announces his retirement and the end of the VR46 era will be official.

        The King is Dead, Long Live the King!!

      I doubt the VR 46 era will die but will transform into a team owner/manager as it is with his participation in moto3. He’s really good for the sport...in any capacity!👍

        As an owner, yes, I see that as a good thing. As a rider, those days are done. I'd love to see VR46 have success in the paddock developing new riders and bringing competition up across the board.
