Quartararo and Vinales, does the relay of the Yamaha riders “punish” the powerful Ducati too severely? Many errors and smudges even among the favorites. It is striking, looking at the ranking, the fact that Official pilots and “satellite” pilots have such different positions in the standings, both for Yamaha and Ducati. Only by chance? There is so much more.
Ten drivers classified in 5 seconds and 382 thousandths, is a record. The race was slightly faster than the previous one in Qatar (there was no strong wind), slowed down by the need to manage the tires, but also determined by the Qatari peculiarity: between tests and races, everyone reached the race with about ten working days. In Portugal, in fourteen days, will the balance be different?
The group of the top ten remained compact, behind them there was suffering, in a particular way Rossi and Morbidelli, Petrucci and Pol Espargaro. They stunned the sling start of Oliveira (KTM), the speed and consistency of Martin (eats Pedro Acosta in Moto3!), the solidity of Zarco leader in the world rankings, the beautiful confirmation ofAprilia RS-GP, the nervousness of Miller; was it sanctioned?
