A bit late for this but here is the Official TSR Moto GP Thread.

2018 is the 70th Year of the Moto GP Championship and the question on everyone's mind since pre-season testing is: Will anyone stop the Young sensation and future G.O.A.T Marc Marquez from winning his 5th Moto GP title at the ripe old age of 25 years old.

The race calender comprises of 19 races this year. So far 1 race has been and has already been won by the Ducati of Andrea Dovizioso after a close fight with Marc Marquez and both biding their time behind Sophomore rider Johann Zarco

Marc’s too loose I think. He finished very close to Dovi at Qatar, where last year he struggled. He should dominate the next two races as well.

I will be amazed if Zarco doesn’t win a race.

what is ominous however is Marc was this close on a ducati track. But agree, Zarco should win a race and if I were Yamaha, Id give him a 2018 bike (although they probably wont as alleggedly tech 3 will be switching to aprillia due to VR46 team)

I dont have it either but from what I have read on motorsport.com Miller got pole in intermediate conditions from pedrosa and Zarco.

Rabat and Rins were 4th and 5th with Marquez 6th, Aleix Espagaro 7th, Dovi 8th, Maverick 9th, Cal 10th, Rossi 11th and Iannone 12th (top 3 covered by 0.212 seconds, with dani 0.177 slower than miller), top 6th were 0.601 seconds (0.528, 0.59 and 0.601) with dovi 1 second slower than miller.

Lorenzo incidentally was 14th...0.935 seconds slowe than the fastest time in q1

So fair play to Miller and I am curious to see the race tomorrow (sadly will have to wait till highlights)

Read the Autosport live service for the race, utterly insane. Miller was robbed by DORNA.

motorsport.com & autosport.com share articles together (both are owned by a certain Zak Brown...) but I use motorsport.com as you aren't limited to x views a month (although prime articles still require subscription).

But yh, sounds like Miller was robbed and Cal Crutchlow is leading the championship ?!

I need to watch the race highlights on Channel 5 (do ITV still show it or has it moved to Channel 5?)

It’s moved to channel 5. The Autosport live feature does not count towards your views. I also followed the race on the official motogp twitter page.
