Interesting race behind FQ20 after he checked out very soon for the next win.
Happy for AE41 and Aprilia for the first podium after long years of development and pain.
MM93 with a stupid but typical overtaking for him with a bad end for JM89.
The sensation is the return from AD04 to Yamaha soon till end of 2022.

I am extremely intrigued by how this is going to go for Maverick - particularly alongside a former teammate. It's often been said he would benefit from a more 'aggressive' bike. For him to excel on the Aprilia will I think, require perfect storm of bike and tire compatibility, and better racecraft than he's exhibited in the last 3 seasons. Temperamental tires and temperamental riders generally don't equate to winning ways.

Maybe we will find out how good the Aprilia really is...either that, or how good the rev limiter is?

What a ride Pecco!!! - Dovi/The Professor Mk.II - and a Ducati that actually turns.

Unbelievable tenacity from Marc.

Great shame for Dixon.

Yamaha really don't like this place.

Speaking of Andrea, will be great to see him back at Misano on the Petronas M1 and Franky deservedly in the factory team where he belonged this year.

Moto 2 - superb from Fernández given the metacarpal fracture. Very disappointed for Lowes.

In Moto3, Garcia has chucks away a massive opportunity to claw back points on the championship lead, Acosta incapable of concealing a wry smile.

Superb ride by Pecco, one of the best battles this year.
fending off once Marquez isn't an easy feat let alone 7 times!

Great ride from Bastianini on a 2019 Ducati - the irony of seeing Rubén Xaus hanging over the pit wall exhorting him to calm down :D

Miller mugged by Márquez and Mir - although Mir demoted to sixth for exceeding track limits out of T.15.

Great calculated response by Bagnaia. Very clever. dropped off a few tenths to nurse that worn rear to the line.

Don't like Misano much - far better when it went left. Shame we're back again on the 21st.

COTA next - Marc's strongest circuit - but the sheer physicality of the place will negate that this year.

Pecco was awesome yet again, though Fabio did make that late charge. Shame about Miller, was hoping for a podium.
Moto 2 was a good race too, thought Remy was going to grab the lead till he stuffed up and went wide lol was a good battle

Turn 2 - 11, ridiculous. This track is physical enough without the dreadful surface. So many accidents caused by the bumps.
