Beside of the one
we cannot mention his name here (Nostrilamus = the new Valedemor)
I think there are many people around that doesn't understand a lot about racing.
Both MM and JL were better than VR in this race. Period. JL faught with MM the same way VR did in Qatar, very good performance for Jorge.
Now, Valentino started from 10th and laped "similar" times than the riders in front. 2 factors are forgotten:
1. When you are close to the guy in front of you, and I mean, really close, you gain tenths from the chase and the slippstreaming. And you all know how agressive would have been VR in front of his homecroud if he had covered that difference not qualifying in that shitty 10th (his fault).
2. To close the gap would have meant that VR was faster than them and yesterday that was not the case.
One last thing that Dorna has to realize: Stuppid semi-factory rules like the softer tyres f**ck everybody except the guy that qualifies in the first position!
Anything after 1st and you have to lose time overtaking B riders (not because of lack of skills but because of real potential of their rides). Iannone, Esparrago, Dovizioso, etc. 2014 rules are ****!
