I saw Yamaha taking pole position yesterday by a good margin.
Today one of their guys who underperformed quite obviously yesterday got from 14th to 5th with ease and had better pace than both the Hondas.
So what exactly were you watching?
I know you're desperate to pretend Marquez is the underdog (when he really isn't) and talk up his performances like he's on an inferior bike (which he definitely isn't).
I think you're the only person who'd say the Yamaha is better than the Honda. Did you forget how far off the pace they were last year, already? And it's clear they still don't have as good top speed as Ducatis or Hondas, as evidenced in this race. If it was true what you were saying, it must mean Honda had done a terrible job in winter.
You'd make a good fiction writer.
