WHAT a save MM did towards the end!
Any other mere mortal would have binned it.
Sad end to both the factory Ducatis, and Lorenzo clearly has problems understanding messages from the pits.
Too bad Zarco got pipped by Pedrosa on the last lap.

He's surely going to end as one of the all time greats.
I do wonder though, 24 with 4 and there's so much more.
Will he still be able to entertain himself at the age of 30?

Probably... He loves riding and racing. Dream job that he adores, appreciates and excels at. He's also the real deal making his mark on the sport by being the absolute beast he can be and no that wasnn't a typo!

He's doing all of this against the best riders the world has to offer and he's doing it in a series with a lot more rules than others have made their mark with and NO SPECIAL TIRES custom made and flown in just for him on the day of the race like Rossi used to get.

How I wish we could also see him and the other top riders over time together now on current chassied, engined and tired no electronic 500s.
We can only imagine.........
