Good race. Unexpected things happened. I like it when there's a fight till the end. Moto3 delivered that as well.

Pretty sure Zarco is gonna win one this year. Had all the big guys worried for a bit.

Yeah. I'm not sure I remember seeing it discussed, but we (America) just don't have the commitment to the sport that the rest of the world does and that's what holds us back. We start our kids on dirt bikes young, but that's not the same. Spaniards and Italians start their kids on pocket rockets at 4. Not to mention the lack of feeder system. MotoAmerica seems to be making a comeback, but again, it's just not the same.

That was great. He had a good ride up until he made the mistake transitioning to the brakes. Tough break for the kid, but I think you're right. He's gonna win one.

Ionnone is going to be a force on the Suzuki.

Iannone looked strong also, can see him winning on the Suzuki this year too. Hondas struggled, but rode smart and got what they could. Will be very different in Argentina, or not?

Definitely not a track that the Ducati's will have their power advantage on. More suited to the agile bikes.

Moto3 proves again it's the series to watch. Others were certainly good too.

with all the delays and drama the race was worth waiting
for. Loved seeing Zarco run the pace for 6 laps,certainly
one to watch this year. A shoe in for rookie of the year.
I agree the maniac will be a force this year. Maverick
lived up too the hype, think this will be a fun season.

Not even a tiny bit. Shithead did nothing but whine all weekend. Viņales looks to be the perfect replacement; he even looks a little like You're-gay!

I was a little sorry to see the manufacturers stay conservative with fairing choices. I read the Ducati "hammerhead" fairing seriously hampered top speed so they went with the old design, along with everyone else bar Suzuki. Was never a fan of the strakes but it's fun to see radical new designs regardless.

It is odd that no else decided to 'homologate' the new fairings. They will have one opportunity to change this season, but I guess they just decided they were fast enough without them.

I can't wait to watch Zarco the rest of the season. My jaw was dropped the entire time he was leading. In just those few laps he gave me the same tingles that I get when watching old Senna races (I know, two different types of racing, but when someone dances a vehicle around like that it's something to behold).
